Onstage - Solihull 2017

So this weekend is our local Onstage event. An event we are all anxious to attend twice a year. We get together with other demonstrators to share our love of all things Stampin' Up!, meet with old friends, make new ones, swap cards, watch demonstrations, get training and ... get to see the Salebration information, next catalogue and some of the goodies therein!!!
I will be travelling up in the fairy bus along with my friend Kim and her team of fairies.
I haven't got any general swaps this time around, unusual for me, but I have prepared a few other bits to take with me.
First, a little Pot of Gold for each of the ladies I'm travelling with. They're filled with gold covered sweets - Belgian chocolate coins and Werthers.

 A close up of one of the jars-

A gift for one of my downline who will be attending too.

Inside, a glass cup and saucer withe the words 'create, inspire,dream' written in gold.

Some ceramic tree decorations which I've stamped as a gift for some friends.

Not a great photo but you can just about see Rudolph's nose which is a rhinestone xoloured with one of our new Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Blends.

Some gift wrapped Prosecco Marshmallows, yum!

My Upline, Natalie always gives each of us a gift. I thought it would be nice to give one in return.

I do love the tiny embellishments - you can see one here a little more clearly-

At an event sometime back, she'd apparently liked a scarf which I'd given to Kim. The scarves are no longer available despite me trying to hunt one down! So I've got the nearest thing I can find, covered in stars as her team are the Stampin' Stars.

 I love the silver edging on it too!

Finally a little card to share. It's for a friend who has moved house. I'm a little disappointed as it hasn't come out quite how I planned. I've popped it in the envelope and sealed and now realise that one of the trees is bent...not happy!

A little too late to change, ugh!
By the time you're reading this our event will be in full swing! If I can, I'll try to share some photos on my Facebook page so pop on there over the next couple of days.
Whatever you're doing, have a good weekend.
