So what was in the box?

Hi all
In my last post I showed you one of the lovely Kraft boxes that I was given at the weekend, bu what was inside the box.
It was the two tone ribbon in pink from the new Spring/Summer catalogue , this can be yours for £6.25 . Also in the box were a tub of the faceted designer buttons. They come in a tub of 24 buttons in 3 different sizes.
If you would like to buy any of the items from the current catalogue please let me know.
Finally for today I am sharing with you the swap that I received from Jo at training. A little box which did have some chocolate in, but not for long ! You can see that she used one of the faceted buttons in the decoration
Until next time

Quarterly training

Hi All
I went to quarterly training session today with our lovely up line Jo where we did some really nice projects. I was asked to do a presentation on blogging for the ladies which went quite well (I think ! )
All the projects we did used the products from Sale-a-bration which runs from 22 January until 22 March. During that time you can get a free gift for every £45 that you spend on products from the current catalogues. This is a fantastic offer and we all like getting something for free. If you would like to see what the free gifts are please email me on: margaret@margaretjones.net and I will be happy to send you the Sale-a-bration flyer.
These are the three cards that we made during the morning session. I will show you what we made in the afternoon session later in the week.
Until next time
