Fun Goodies From My Annual Stampin Up Catalog Party

Happy Wednesday!  I hope that all of you are having  a good week so far.  Mine has been a busy and very productive one.  Because I've been so busy I have not had any energy to craft.  Hopefully by the end of the week I will have some time to do some crafting.  Today I would like to share some pictures from my annual Stampin Up catalog party.  Each year I feel very blessed to get to earn lots and lots of free products and be able to purchase products for 50% off.  This year was no different.  I was able to receive a little more than $210 of free products of my choice and 4 items for 50% off.  I was super excited when all the orders arrived.  When the UPS guy brought the boxes to my door I happened to peak out the window.  He used a dolly to bring these boxes to my door. 

Here is all the fun products that I earned.

I can't wait to get to play with everything when I have some time off from work.  As a big mahalo to my friends that placed an order I made a little some thing for them.  For the three friends that ordered the most I gave them some Martha Steward twine.

All my other friends received a package of twine.

It was lots of fun making toppers for each of the gifts.  Along with their gifts each friend also received 2-3 cards  from the friend that are placed the order with.  Each year I ask her to send me some cards to give to my friends to give them some ideas.  Here is the stash of awesome cards that she sent to me this year.

It's always so hard for me to not end up keeping all the cards for myself.  LOL!    Before I end I want to share some pictures of ono food that my family and I enjoyed last weekend.  On Saturday we had dinner at Back Home in Lahaina. My hubby ordered HI fried chicken, teri chicken, and BBQ beef and I ordered the luau platter which includes a choice of rice (I ordered bacon fried rice.), kalua pork, roasted port,  rice noodle soup, and lomi lomi.

My order comes with an onolicious piece of haupia (coconut) cheese cake. (It's in a take out box because we were too full to eat another bite.)

Afterwards we dropped by of our favorite bakeries- 85 Degrees.  We picked up some green tea rolls and a taro smoothie with boba.

On Sunday we spent a total of  11 hours at Disneyland and California Adventure and ate dinner at Flo's Diner at California Adventure.  They have the best pulled pork sandwich

and roasted chicken.

For dessert we ordered a chocolate moose pie.  It looks rich, but it's very light.

(We don't usually order dessert when we go out to dinner unless we are enjoying a meal at an amusement park or at one of favorite restaurants.) With all the ono food that I ate last weekend I think it's time to go on a diet.  Thanks for stopping by to see what I have to share.  Have a blessed rest of the week!

  1. Wow Colleen, you sure scored a lot of feebies from your SU party. Bet you're in craft heaven now. So nice of your friend to make cards for your other friends who placed an order. I too would want to keep them.....LOL. YUMMY, all of the food pix look deeelicious. I just finished dinner and want to eat again. That's a very interesting looking Chocolate Moose Pie. Happy Thursday!!!!
