Happy February and I hope you had a really great love and friendship-filled Valentine’s Day! It is so very important to share the joys that you have in your life with the ones you love and even someone you may just know a little but needs a nice little pick me up. I know how much you love getting together with your friends and family at our Play Dates (formerly known as the crops). This is such a great opportunity to spend time with some of those special friends and family members. It’s also a great way to get away and get some shopping and papercrafting projects completed — well, maybe at least started for some of you. February brings us an extra day this year so let’s make February 29th our Expo Share Your Kindness Day!
Have you checked out all of the great themes we have planned for you this year? At each show there are so many guests that either dress in their themed outfits or decorate their seating area, and many do both. Holy cow! You guys go all out and it really adds to the fun for everyone. The bar is raised and the costumes and decorations get better and better each year. If you create a t-shirt using the theme of the Play Date or even create a full costume, just an FYI: I was the back of a horse a few years ago at our Puyallup event; we really enjoy all the great costumes. And the winners receive a Gift Card from Stamp and Scrapbook EXPO to use on anything EXPO. What could be better than that!! And for those of you who are able to attend any of our shows where we are hosting our Sunday Play Dates, all you need to wear is what makes you comfortable!
Here are a couple more door prize sponsor gifts that wil be given away at our Play Dates this year.
Look at this great door prize provided by our Play Date sponsor Quick Quotes. This is one of a couple of their paper lines you can win. This kit includes some really cute chipboard embellishments that will work on your cards or in your planners. These prizes have that classic Quick Quotes look.
We are excited to have The 12×12 Cardstock Shop as one of our new Crafter’s Play Date sponsors. This prize includes a colorful and fun-filled 6×6 paper pad and those have-to-have enamel dots you can add to your projects. As an added bonus to our winners of this great prize, there is a special coupon you will receive as well to use for additional purchases!
As you can see, we are starting to get all geared up for the 2020 show season with these and other great prizes still to come! Next month I am going to give you a sneak peek at some of the fun tools and goodies you will get to try out first hand at our Creation Station at the Play Dates. Stay tuned for all the fun and prizes still to come!!
