~Maniac Monday!~RAK Closed* (:


Thelma and Louise made it back from RENO to Nashville.... with some Orange Glitter!
Thanks Angela!

Cherrie, Aymee and which one is Pinky?? hehe
The Three Amigos!


Well did y'all miss me?
I have been SWAMPED this weekend/week.
Last couple weeks I had a HUGE dress order come in then preparing for the
BEST scrapping event I have ever been to! The Nashville Fiskateer Fisk-A-Friendzy!

And wow it was SOOOOOO much better than I ever anticipated!
First of all having Cherrie and Aymee fly in was wonderful and visiting with them for 4 days
just made it so special.
Then meeting REBECCA the Lead Fiskateer just made it so much more special.
I know Fiskars did the online Fiskateers for promotion,
but they created something so special.

Not only a place for crafters to come and learn and chat BUT a place to meet your local scrapbookers and create a lifetime of friendships.
I don't think that has a price tag.
I am HOPING praying they do it again next year!
But I know it had to be terribly expensive!!

I know how hard Rebecca worked on it and how hard people
who volunteered worked as well!

Now I bet you are wondering what the heck this is on my blog?
Well, this is the PAGE KIT Including STAMPS that sat on every seat in the house!
And guess what? I have 1 to giveaway!
Yes, you have a chance at getting one of these AWESOME
LIL DAVIS kits too!

So what I want you to do is leave me a comment AND remember how very special
Fiskars and LIL Davis is.
They do care about their customers! They really do!
And you know I firmly believe in passing on the crafty LOVE so make sure to use this kit to pass on some crafting LOVE and whether it be a CARD or an outright gift...make sure to Practice RANDOM ACTS OF CRAFTING!

I will announce a WINNER on WED!



It truly was a once in a lifetime experience! And my hat is OFF to Rebecca and everyone who worked so hard to put it together!
Thank YOU FISKARS!
Have a Beautiful Crafty Day!
~Pinky~

I wasn't able to go to a Fiska-fenzy but I went to Scrapfest and met Angela, Rebbeca and Cheryl. And you're right on. They are amazing human beings and I love getting the chance to know them better through the website. I also love the two Jo's, Wendy and Kelly and I bet they have the same amazing spirit that the other leads have.

Every event I have been involved in sponsored by Fiskars has been over the top amazing. They are a gracious company to their customers and anyone within ten feet of their customers. I do my best to keep this company thriving, I think they are deserving of much praise.

Rox-Ann said...

weze said...

Unfortunately none of the events were anywhere near me in Wisconsin otherwise I would have been there! But I am lucky enuf to be able to to their warehouse sale in a few days to check it out. Fiskars is definitely a company that has a heart and I think that's why they have faithful & fun followers called Fiskateers! I am proud to be #3903

How generous of you! Thanks also so very much for posting the '411' on the Fisk MB. We need those details! It helps me feel a little like I was there.
