Stampin Up Open House....I'M OFFICIAL!! YAY!

I did it! I said that I would do it and indeed I did!  SIGH....I'm in love with Stampin' Up.  I really can't say it enough.  So I joined the team and hosted my very first Stampin' Up Open House. 

This is the general "products offered/ products made" spread:

A view where you can see my circle garland hanging out with the window wreaths:

A close up of the main table:

Left side, don't you love the heart card?!?:

Right side, showing off my Sizzix "Big Kick", Stampin' Up carries the "Big Shot" (they do the same thing):

I set up the catalogs, order forms and pens under neath the main table:

Flower card made with hearts folded in half, an embossed background and button centers:

You'll have to cock your head to the left to see this one properly....apologies- "hello, you make me spin in circles card":
Showing off the circle/scallop garland again:

Close up of the garland action:

Here's our work table

I made "trash can" labels...cute huh?

And here's the little strawberry patch growing, these work great as party favors, we filled ours with chocolate!:

Again, cock you head to the left, here's our cute little heart attack cards, they are actually popping up from the card, much cuter in person:

And here's the goodies-cranberry turkey croissant sandwiches, muffins, cupcakes and fruit assortment (the raspberries are to die for):

And no goodies are complete without a "sweet" banner...ha ha, the banner is sweet and the goodies are sweet....it's all quite a literal pun:

And the drink station, with raspberry-watermelon lemonade (yum) and a tin bucket full of sodas and water:

SIGH....I am in love with Stampin' Up.  We've started an "online" group.  It's great!  Ask me for details if you like to join!  www.kourtneyskreations.stampinup.net

Let's do this again!

Get a headboard, gain a oasis!

I've obsessed, planned, draped, dressed, and gussied up my bed for what seems like years.  You know  those moments, the ones where you think you've done such a good job on something, only to take a picture and think, 'It doesn't REALLY look like that, does it?'.

That was my bed for a while.  Bedding collections- really not worth it for me.  I thought I liked matchy bedding.  Who doesn't like a well coordinated, flowing space, right?  Evidently, three bedding collections later, I don't.  I like to hunt down the perfect pillow, the cutest throw, the softest sheets and then pile them all up on the bed and hope they work!

Also, headboards are not over rated.  I came, I learned, I am a believer.  Get a headboard, they are worth it.  Even if it's not an official headboard, get something above you (not heavy or sharp edged please), it makes it oh so grand!

I wish I had a before, they were bad, so bad!  It's funny now.  It wasn't then....so I deleted the offending pictures.

No further ado, here's the reformed, "mismatched" bed:
