Wow!! Talk about a fun time!
There were 9 ladies who signed up for the Mystery Hostess Event - one of them signed up for 2 spots, and one of them took 3 spots. So there were 12 "spots" taken for the event. That meant 12 bonus prizes instead of just 10. So I added another half price item and a $40 shopping spree.
Five of the participants were available to come over on Tuesday night to do some crafting fun and make the 3 cards you see here (plus a gorgeous little gilded purse) and while they crafted, my son was kind enough to draw their names out of a bowl, one at a time.
Here's what the prize breakdown looked like:
1) $75 shopping spree of FREE products (Bernadette)
2) $50 shopping spree of FREE products (Elizabet)
3) $35 shopping spree of FREE products (Cecilia)
4) FREE set of 10 ink pads - choose from Brights, Subtles or Regals (Sandy)
5) 1/2 price ANY item (pay only 50% on anything) (Cecilia)
6) 1/2 price ANY item (pay only 50% on anything) (Monique)
7) 1/2 price ANY item (pay only 50% on anything) (Kathy)
8) Sycamore Street SAB Bundle (DSP, Ribbons, Stamp set) (Bernadette)
9) Silver Glimmer Paper PLUS pick 3 more SAB items (Donata)
10) Adhesive pack - glue sticks, dimensionals, 2-way glue pen, snail refill, AND a pkg rhinestones ($35 value) (Cathie)
11) $40 in your choice of FREE products (June)
7) 1/2 price ANY item (pay only 50% on anything) (Bernadette)
In addition, since B.R. took 3 of the spots, she had the biggest order and was awarded my thank-you gift of an extra $25 to spend. Wow!! Her strategy certainly paid off as in addition to all the lovely things that she ordered herself, she ended up winning $100 of FREE product, one item at 50% off, and the Sycamore Street SAB bundle (worth over $35). That's a pretty nice set of winnings, wouldn't you say?!?
As for me? I had a blast. The ladies brought laughter and smiles into my home last night and I got to share their excitement and anticipation as we waited to see who would win what bonus.
This was way too much fun not to do it again. I can't wait to run another Mystery Hostess Party - let me know if you want to be included next time. Anyone and every one in Canada can participate. And the best part is...everyone is a winner!!
Until next time then....God Bless, ~Cynthia <><
