Goodie Bag and Favors!

Two posts in one night! I thought I'd catalogue my awesome goodie bag for you before it gets dispersed. Everyone got a handmade name tag (with a pocket for meal coupons and your room key) and a bag like this:
A complete catalog for the seminar: what's happening when and where and contact information for everyone.
Two cards of Rainbow Gallery Threads, Splendor and Flair and a coordinating skein of DMC perle coton.
A complete kit for a Brazilian Embroidery flower (Jasmine) from EdMar.
A Charles Craft Catalog.
Two samples of Udder Cream.
Gloves in a Bottle sample from Stitcher's Crossing (a local shop).
One sample tub of Handmade Natural Beauty Cranberry Almond lotion bar.
Charts from Martina Weber/Chatelaine, Nordic Needle, Prairie Schooler, Stacy Nash Primitive Designs, Creative Cross Stitch Designs and Quilt Patterns by Karen Kluba.
Recipes using real butter from the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board (they look yummy!)
Lots of shop fliers, some local-some not, and some with coupons!
Local tourism information and visitor's guides with lots of coupons for local shops, attractions and restaurants.

At dinner tonight we each got a favor. The theme of this seminar is friendship and our favor was a complex fold-out this way and that booklet with a hand-stamped and cutout cover. It's an autograph book! We passed ours around our table for all of our table mates to sign. What fun--I haven't done this since high-school. The pressure was less but there was still a bit of thought so you wouldn't say something too lame or silly. I may ask my table mate tomorrow to sign and the teacher...

Pretty good haul! and it's still only day one!
