Christmas Extravaganza Recap - Part One

The Bella B Stampers 1st Annual Christmas Extravaganza and Christmas Crop are now behind us - and what a FABULOUS time we had! I will be posting recaps and photos every day this week and then on Friday I will have a special announcement for you all, so be sure to subscribe to my blog feed so you don't miss a minute of this great event!
Christmas Extravaganza Demonstrators, Left to Right: Katie Burke, Patricia Crawford, Tammy Baldwin, Tracy Skinner, and Phyllis Shepherd. (Not pictured, Daphne Wright.) Ladies, thank you SO MUCH for helping make this event not only a success, but a much-needed good time filled with laughter for me. Love you all!!

Christmas Crop Helpers: We enlisted 2 of my dear friends to help in the Crop Room, as well as with various other tasks throughout the day. Kathleen Guion (left) is a member of Pleasant Grove UMC and Katie Mattox (right) is a local Methodist minister and wife of the pastor at Pleasant Grove. Thank you both for all you did! Much love and many hugs!

We helped to kick off the food drive at Pleasant Grove UMC. Participants brought in canned/nonperishable goods to start assisting families in need. Thank you all!!!

Cookies, cocoa, and coffee, as well as fruits were served for refreshments and we all enjoyed Christmas music playing in the background.

Inside of the grand prize bag - multiple stamp sets, ink pads, markers, kits, T-shirt, all sorts of assorted goodies!

Items from the individual drawings.
