Virtual Workshop – Part 2

Ready for more behind-the-scenes, insider look at workshop prep? Here’s your back-stage pass.

Okay, here’s project station 4, which was kind of a multi-purpose and extra-credit station:


Because it’s the first station as you walk into the house, it also has the packets for the ladies to pick up for all their projects – there on the upper left corner. On the left side of the table, we did this sour-cream packet project.


And, on the right side of the table, we did the pop-up can project. Both of these are described in greater detail in this post: Goodie, Goodie.


After they picked up their packets and walked down the hallway to check out the other projects, my workshop ladies got to also check out some other project ideas – my inspiration board. Here’s how I display my latest collection of projects (sorry, it’s not the best quality picture).


Oh, yes, and there’s the business/transaction station (catalogs, pens, latest promotion, calculators . . . ) As you can see, it just sits on an unoccupied space, my piano.


Now, there’s nothing to do but wait for our guests. Mailey-dog is ready – she’s napping, but right at the door so she doesn’t miss greeting a single guest.


And now . . .

several hours later . . .

the aftermath . . .


I didn’t even serve alcohol this time. But, I always say about stamping, if you don’t get a little messy, you’re just not having enough fun. And, then, with Christmas cards, if you don’t leave with glitter all over you, you’re just not doing it right. (Poor Tom, I think there was even glitter in his bacon the next morning.)

I always have fun with my stamping ladies. Hope you had fun joining us this time.

    Thanks for sharing your workshop ideas. Your tables look just like mine before and after the party. Ha. I wanted to ask where are you finding the fruit cup cans? I’ve gone to 4 different stores and can’t seem to find them. Do they not make them anymore?? Do you have any ideas??
    Thanks, Michelle

  2. Oh, Linda! I LOVE seeing what others of ‘us’ do! Gee wish I were not in NC, and I’d LOVE to come to one of your workshops! (and I love your stories!–I’d want to be sure to come to the ones with glitter!). ENJOY YOUR DAY, AND TFS!

  3. Hey Michelle, Since I don’t have your e-mail I guess I’ll answer your question here. In central Texas we have HEB grocery stores, and I found the pop-up cans there. DelMonte sells snack-size fruit cans, and HEB sells their equivalent, so I had a choice. Hope this helps.

  4. What fun Linda, I wish I could have joined you. I miss my holiday workshops so much.
