Friday -- Staying Up Late

Our Stake Women's Conference was Saturday, so for me, that meant a late night Friday night. I made all of the flyers, programs, name tags, and thank-you notes.

Our theme was "Cruise to Perfection" so everything was built around the cruise theme. The programs were made to look like passports and all the name tags, flyers, and thank you notes had the ship on them.

The passports were the most labor-intensive project I've taken on for a Relief Society event. Also, my printer took a full minute to print each page, so it took a really long time to get all the pages ready to assemble. Then, everything had to be cut, the corners rounded, and then stapled together. Marie, our stake RS secretary, came and helped on Friday night and it only took us until 10:00 to finish up. If that had been the end of my assignment, we would have all been doing well.
After finishing the programs, I still had to sew scripture bags for Laurels in the stake. I only made three, but I had to wrestel with the sewing machine enough that it took me at least an hour longer than it should have. They turned out just fine though.

I love how everything turned out. I'll admit that I'm glad I'm done though. It made me a little tired getting all of that finished.

The bags are beautiful! I'm with annzy, you're a little bit on the crazy side. (BTW- do you know about this little business called Kinkos? You should check them out next time.)
Really, you are so dedicated. It sounds like it was wonderful, I wish I could have been there. I was off learning how to feed my baby without killing him. Very important, you know.

Wow, that is so amazing! Now I'm sad I missed the event and didn't get to see all your hard work in person.
