Swap Til You Drop!

Today is the day I can finally tell all about my party...
I did it for Studio 5... and it airs today.
They asked that I not blog about the specifics until today!
It was a "Swap Til You Drop" party...
The notion of "One Girlfriend's JUNQUE is another Girlfriend's treasure" was in full swing!
My darling cousin, Courtney Orton, is a contributor for Studio 5 and she asked that I throw this party as a story for her!
Everyone was a little nervous at the idea of being on TV,
but they all looked great!
Some of the goodies that were brought to swap were: homemade salsa, clothes, home decor, books, and crafting supplies. I told them all to bring something "fabulous" that they don't love anymore! They all brought the greatest stuff.

We had yummy treats, fantastic company, and we all
"Swapped Til we Dropped!"
The motto was: Shopping, Girlfriends, and Chocolate... Could it get any better than this?"
The take home favors were giant candy bars and reusable grocery bags... glammed up, of course!

We all had such a fun time. I was a little nervous to have a TV cameraman attend the party,but it all went off without a hitch. It is on today at 11:00 on KSL!
The other great thing that came from it was that I am teaching a party class at DEAR LIZZIE! I am going to share 2 versions of this party- GO GLAM & GO GREEN! It is on Tuesday, April 13 at 7:30. You will get invitations, favors, a style folder, and a really great time. I am going to share all my party secrets and ideas so you can get all your girlfriends together and "swap til you drop"! Remember one girlfriend's JUNQUE is another girlfriend's treasure!
You can call Dear Lizzie at 435.492.0022 to reserve your spot and join in on the fun!

Hi! You've inspired my friends and me to throw a similar party and I wanted to download the silhoutte shopper to print on tags and such. However, when I went to house of 3's website I could not for the life of me find it. Would you mind telling me exactly how I can find it on their site? I'd greatly appreciate it! You can email me at

Thanks for throwing such a fabulous party and inspiring us all!

Hi Amy,
Back in April you helped me with the brush set you used from House of 3 for your swap party so I could use it at mine. I promised you I'd send pictures from our party and I completely forgot until now. I just posted the pictures from it on my blog (yeah, it took me long enough!) and thought I'd send you my blog address so you could see our party.

Thanks so much for your help and inspiration!
