Women's Expo

The last few days I have been busy getting ready for a Women's Expo that I participated in Saturday. I was one of the presenters at Casey White Oak's Women Expo. This was the first time I have ever done anything like this, and will probably be my last. I was a nervous wreck. I'm very thankful for my friend Terri who went with me and helped me out. THANKS TERRI. She knows I owe her one now.

The ladies were all very nice, it's just that I have a fear of public speaking. But I made it through with lots of prayer and I'm glad it's over. Although, I'm sure I would really have enjoyed it a lot if I hadn't been a presenter. They served a continental type breakfast to start with and registered everyone and broke them off into groups. Then we all went in the sanctuary where a man gave us a presentation on women's heart health. I did learn some interesting things about that. Next, the ladies broke off into three groups and this is where I came in. We had three stations that each group visited. One lady gave a presentation about the Casey Historical Society, another lady demonstrated how to make flower arrangements and talked about Mexico her birthplace. Then I gave a class on basic cardmaking and had everyone make a card. Most of the ladies had never stamped before and we only had 30 minutes for each segment, so I had to keep it pretty basic.

Everyone did manage to get their card made and I gave them some basic information about the items they would need to get started with stamping and so forth. After everyone rotated through all the stations, they served us lunch. They had a mexican theme and we had a taco bar for lunch. Their decorations were cool and they had several door prizes. The picture with the magazine holder, bookmarks and 3x3 cards is what I donated for a door prize. The other picture shows the individual cards in the magazine holder. I'm sorry the picture isn't very good. I was taking them about 6:30 in the morning, and anyone who knows me, knows I am not a morning person.

Thanks for looking,
