A Warm Gift

For several years in a row, I’ve attended the Craft & Hobby Association’s semiannual convention—a wonderful opportunity to see trend-setting ideas and products that are coming from the creative minds in the crafting world. A group of product and marketing people from Stampin’ Up! also regularly attend.

This year I didn’t go. While I did miss seeing the fresh, fun new ideas, I have to admit that my feet did not miss the hours and hours of walking!

Melanie Hopes, one of the bright minds in our creative group, sewed gifts of mug warmers (made from one of our fabrics from the Occasions mini) that they gave to contacts we work with who were attending CHA. I was thrilled when there was one left over, which she gave to me!

I thought it was a darling idea, and such a great gift . . . (of course, any gift that features our products have to be pretty great, doesn’t it?).

Anyway, I had to share it with you. Hope you like it as much as I do. . .
