A Successful Weekend!

The party went well. At first I was a little dissappointed. I didn't think I had made as much money as I was hoping. Not that I really had a goal, but when I did a quick count it seemed low. However, when I got home and recounted I was much happier with the figure that I got.
Unfortunately, there were a number of items that no one was interested in purchasing- paint cans, multi-holiday sets of cards, etc. So now I'm stuck with lots of merchandise. I guess I know what family will be getting for Christmas gifts. :)

In other news, it was a fairly productive weekend. Saturday Chris and I did a bunhc of Christmas shopping. We finished up about half of his family. If only I could get better gift lists from people in my family. Andrew wants money for his hike, my dad needs slippers, my mom wants more pants. That's pretty much all the info I've gotten from them. And then there are Hanna and Liz, and both of them have Jan/Feb birthdays so I'll need ideas for that as well. At least I still have almost 2 months left for shopping.

Then today I scanned some more slides and then watched Karate Kid with Chris. We both admitted to watching it a few too many times as kids so we could always say what was coming next. Then this evening I did a couple more layouts. Just a few more and I'll be done with January. It's official, I am very behind with my scrapping.

I was trying to be the mole in the room and generate Buzz about the paintcans! And glad to hear you made more $$ than you originally thought.
I think for the next time - to come up with a more structured presentation only so the guests are able to see everything how you've designed it.
