There were so many things going on - I brought my camera but didn't get a chance to take any pictures! That's what I get for being a social butterfly! LOL! We had live demonstrations by Jen Young (the Cricut Queen), Jodi Ann Lee (the Copic coloring Queen), Claudette San Pedro (the Sweetie Queen), and ManLe Hong (the Pineapple Cove Queen). We were also able to shop, shop, shop! Joy of Tamiko's, Jen of Little C's, Summer of Roses on Paper, all had items for sale at some awesome prices!!! Items from Fisher Hawaii, courtesy of Teri, were also available for purchase. Yes, we went crazy! Here are the RAKs I received from some very talented and ambitious ladies:
These are the Twilight RAKs I also received. The mag is from Claudette - thanks so much for thinking of me girl! And check out the goodie bag that Sunny made! Barbie said she was practicing for her Twilight birthday party. You did a super job, Sunny! Thank you so much!
This is the goodie bag that everyone got upon check in. We also had ID cards personalized with Sweeties, courtesy of Ms. Claudette. All items in the goodie bag were donated by some very generous people. So overwhelming ... the Aloha Spirit is something that you just can't describe, but it is definitely alive and well.
We also were given all the necessary items for three make & take projects. Two beautiful cards and one super duper notebook. Of course I didn't finish making my projects since I was so busy doing other things ... but I did want to say a special THANK YOU to the best helper ever! Taelyn, Joy's daughter, was such a huge help to all of us at the "Bind It All" table. She put together so many notebooks it was unbelieveable! She was like the Energizer Bunny - she kept going, and going, and going! Thanks, Taelyn, for making my notebook! I just love it and I can't wait to see you again!
Whew - what a long post! I hope I didn't forget anything or anyone. If I did, I'm so very sorry and did not forget you intentionally. Thanks to Teri for EVERYTHING! If you ever decide to do this again, I hope you know that I'm available to help! You are one awesome "Little Girl"!
