Today is Small Business Saturday and as an independent demonstrator, my business of one counts as small. This weekend is typically the one where most Christmas presents are bought, so I thought I'd share some ideas with you. Order at sueroot.stampinup.net. As always, use the current hostess code (in right sidebar) to get a free thank you gift from me.
Of course you can make someone a nice assortment of cards. Hand crafted cards are an always appreciated, always useful gift.
