Last week before all of the limitations were put into place about groups of people I held my second bingo event. As it turned out it became my last stamping get-together for awhile as I am sheltering in place along with so many others. I had 12 people come and my overall theme was bees because I LOVE the new Honey Bee stamp set.
Each bag had a set of the Stampin’ Up note cards and envelopes, supplies for the make & takes, a Honey Stinger Waffle (Amazon), a little honeycomb jar filled with honey hard candy, and a Burt’s Bees chap stick.
Since toilet paper is in such short supply right now I thought this bee looked cute perched on top of a roll and who knows, that roll just may come in handy for the person who won it. Speaking of toilet paper, one of the guests, Kym, brought me the cutest gift. She machine embroidered right on a roll.
Guests received extra raffle tickets if they brought a snack to share so we had plenty of goodies to eat. These cookies were made by my friend Debi and I. We have both taken two classes in cookie decorating and we have lots to still learn and much more practice before they look like we want them to look but for our 3rd try we were happy with these.
I’m not sure what Evelyn is pointing to but she is one of my mahjong buddies and we play often. When she had a bingo on her card she yelled out “mahjong”.
Diane won the Honey Bee Designer Series Paper, a package of card stock and a roll of ribbon. She also was the lucky winner of the last “cover all” bingo game and won the $50 shopping spree. While guests could only win one of the bingo prizes they all were eligible to win the shopping spree and some of the raffle prizes.
It was a fun day and I’ll plan another bingo in the future for sure.
I hope everyone is keeping their distance from others, washing hands, sanitizing and being smart. That’s what it is going to take to get through this pandemic. Remember you’re not only protecting yourself but other people as well. My daughter is a nurse and I worry about her and everyone else who is required to work.
Have a great day
