I have been a Stampin' Up! demonstrator going on 17 years now and one of many things I love about Stampin' Up! is their thinking of ways to be of service. The past few years during events there is a service project and our Founder's Circle retreat was no exception.
I was thrilled to again achieve the Top 100 Demonstrators in 2014 and attend the Founder's Circle Retreat. This week's TBT isn't going back too far just a few months to September. Our final event was creating 3 large Christmas Trees to be donated for the Festival of Trees which every penny (100%) raised benefits children at Primary Children’s Hospital.
I want to share with you some pictures of our event along with the completed trees.
The tree on the left is the one I helped make the garland for. The 3 Trees brought in $7,900. for the Children's Hospital how cool is that!
Me with glue and glitter all over my fingers but look at the cool results. The pine cones were attached to burlap and tied ribbons to create the garland.

This time of year is often a time for reflection, caring and giving and I am so grateful to be part of a company that understands all that!
