Good morning all, I have a dilemma that I am hoping you can help with.
I have reserved a room at my local library to hold a Club Stamp. No selling, just like minded peeps playing with stamps. I went to check out the room and it's huge with it's own kitchen. Now my problem ~ The room is off to the side so people entering the library don't even see the door. There is no advertising allowed in the library. When I asked if I could put up a posting I was told no, so only word of mouth will get people to come find us. So I am looking for ideas on how to get the word out. I know I can pass out flyer's, but is that illegal to go into Michael's and do that? Help I would love to hear what others have done. Thanks in advance, Michelle
Now, about my lovely card. I stamped the tulips from the embrace life set onto watercolor paper and used pencils and the aqua pen. I used the red pencil with touches of gold and they came out so pretty. I hope you likey.

Hi Michelle, I found your site on splitcoast stampers where someone was looking for fellow stampers in Florida. I live in Brandon and have a daughter that lives in Lakeland so I am out that way quite a lot. I belong to a local Stampin Up stamp club but would be very interested in getting together with some other ladies just to stamp and share ideas. If you would let me know some information about your get together I would appreciate it. Thanks!! Janet Babyx2@tampabay.rr.com

Lovely card Michelle. You can take flyers with you while shopping at Michaels and you can get into a conversation with someone in the store and say oh by the way there is this stamp event and then hand them a flyer, thats not illegal. Hmmm.....let me think if I come up with anything else I will let you know. Good luck.

I Like the coloring, and the ribbon sets if off to perfection. Sorry I can't think of a way to addvertise. except putting up flyers in grocery stores, Dr office, any place you can think of. Crafters go all over town.

Hey Michelle,
What about making a huge sign you can put in the windshield of your vehicle: "STAMPING HERE TODAY" with details...the newspaper idea is also a very good one! If you do vehicle window signs, be sure to put them up every time you go into stores!!! Have your phone number on them so people can call for details. I have even seen people put advertisements on their cars with little tear strips that have the phone number and info listed on it!!! LOL Word will get out and you will soon have to find a larger space!!! OH, and don't forget to have incentives for those who "bring a new person" to your events!
