Today was the Second Annual Dames New Catty Meeting. Nina, Geneva, Jeannette, Donna and I gathered at the local doughnut shop and enjoyed coffee, doughnuts and perusing the new catalog. Doesn't it look like we had fun? (doesn't it look like Donna and I are mother and daughter too?!) :)

Do you see what we each have in front of us? That's right - it's the NEW 2011-2012 Catalog - a GREAT benefit of being a demonstrator. Of course, because we cannot share with customers yet, we turned our catties upside down. Except for that rebel Geneva - she kept hers rightside up but she covered hers up with her hands and glasses case and all. :)
We had so much fun. Some of the gentlemen who were at the coffee shop last year were there again this year. I think they are regulars... I overheard them while we were carrying on, I mean discussing our upcoming card designs, about using the new stamps and the new accessories - well I overheard them saying "oh, isn't this pretty, I could make a card with this..." - all in GREAT fun. One of them even took the picture for us! Another one stopped at our table to tell us that he and his lovely wife scrapbook (he mentioned some contraband items that are used, so we won't discuss that) and that his wife does cards on the computer. It was so nice to hear him talk about how his wife can personalize their cards - sympathy, birthday and everything between! Said they haven't purchased a card in YEARS!
AND wanted to give a friendly reminder that today is the last day to receive the discount for the card class on June 25th. As long as your envelope is postmarked today, you can still receive the $5 discount on the class (it is normally $30). We will be concentrating on men's cards for the June class and also have a Christmas card design.
Hope everyone has a wonderful day - and don't forget to contact me for YOUR catalog. If you become a demonstrator with me, perhaps YOU will want to join us next year for the THIRD Annual Dames New Catty Meeting!
