Winner winner Bingo FUN!

Ladies, I am so glad we tried something new! We scheduled a BINGO night, smack dab in the middle of the week, right at the end of Sale-a-Bration, during March Madness!  It was an experiment of grand proportions, and I think we all had a good time! I am open to feedback from those of you who attended, but as the evening ended, there were many requests to "do it again!"

All the prizes were consumables: card sets I had made or Designer Series Paper and embellishments, ribbon, adhesive, etc. I was thinking that if I gave out stamp sets and the winner already owned the item, it would be complicated, right? This way there are no issues and everyone is sure to be a happy winner!
 Everyone got a cute nametag with glimmer paper letters on a tag and a couple "Easter Bonnet" candies. This crowd thought they were Pasties! OMG! We weren't even drinking alcohol. But Susie was more than happy to demonstrate the pasties if I wanted a photo!

Denise was our first BINGO winner, and I couldn't have planned it better if I had tried. She has been on a losing streak at our neighborhood card club, so I hope this changes her luck!

The rest of the evening saw wins from Kathy, Maureen K, Carole and Maureen S (not pictured).

Anyone that didn't win a BINGO game got to select a prize from the basket of consolation prizes, so no-one went home empty-handed.
Not to mention, we had make-n-takes! Between the gambling fun, there was some crafting! I wasn't sure how to fit the BINGO cards, refreshments and stamping supplies all on the table? How do other people do these events? I'm going to have to do more research! What I did was prep the heck out of the cards -- so all we had to do was assemble: glue, tie ribbon, a little coloring, stick on a pop dot and fold with the bone folder. Voila! Simple, but lovely cards that were already stamped by the demonstrator!

 See that stamp case Maureen K won? Inside is a small legal pad, a post-it pad and an envelope. It is a nice organization tool for your shopping bag or purse, you can keep coupons or receipts in the envelope but tonight it had a CASH prize -- a dollar from every person who attended the event! This was the big grand prize for the final game of the evening.

You can be a winner every week by saving money on the Weekly Deals and by earning a Sale-a-Bration gift! This is the final few days, the event ends March 31! Some of the prizes are limited supply and may run out before the promotion ends, so if you are procrastinating and you have your heart set on a specific FREE gift, you better get-a-goin'!

Call me today and don't let the lovely weather and Easter holiday delay your shopping decisions!

These weekly deals end Monday March 28 and new items will be posted early Tuesday morning.

Happy Stampin'!
