#1 Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Stamping on Santa’s Bags and Pootlers Team Gifts
So today on #PootlersTeamRetreat Week, I’m sharing the gift that I put together for everyone.
At all our events, they’re totally non profit and my gift to them are any and all projects that I design (I did just one this time out of 6 amazing projects – more later this week) and I always gift them the products that are needed to make the project.
I’m not going to show you just yet what we made, that’s coming on Friday, but I put together almost 50 gifts for the whole team! Aren’t they lovely?
I had loads and loads of boxes of stuff to carry in my car, and decided to take my collapsible boxes for a couple of reasons – firstly I could collapse them to bring them home instead of having to find somewhere to dispose of cardboard boxes – secondly, they’re only about 12″ (30cm) across, so not huge and heavy to carry.
But when you’ve put 200 markers and bags into a box, it gets heavy!
I’ll show you quickly on Friday how to do the stamping (although it’s simply stazon onto the bags) but I wanted to show you how adorable they looked when put together. And I have to say a huge thank you to my 10 year old son Jacob. Last week, I’d put one gift together to decide if I was happy with the look (I was) and then stamped all the bags that I had in the house (only 24 of the 48 I needed). Anyway, I went to close up my office one night and found that someone had been into the office and put them all together.
Turns out Jacob had wandered in, seen the 4 boxes of the separated pens, spotted the stamped bags and worked out for himself what I’d done. Without prompting, showing great initiative, he’d put them together for me. What a star!
Bless him, he hadn’t taken them out of the packaging (the pens I mean) so I didn’t want to spoil his hard work, and I left them as they were except for the one above for the photo. He’s so cute!
Happy Tuesday everyone, oh and a heads up for anyone planning to join me, we are eventing together in Orlando in November, UK in April and a full weekender again hopefully in the summer! We do lots together!
