I can't believe our wonderful cruise is over and we are all back to regular lives. We would like to thank the following people who made this Sailing with Scissors, a fabulous adventure:
Thanks to Jessie Hurley, owner of Cherish the Thought for sponsoring this cruise. Jessie put in so much effort with her classes, and putting together the goody bags, and sending out information emails and contacting sponsors for the group. In addition, it is a huge obstacle to be away from one's business for two weeks. Jessie did this for our group. Yay Jessie!
Thanks to all the generous companies and individuals (I see cute leather red flowers) who donated prizes for the goody bags and class prizes. Everyone won a prize...Yoohoo!
Thanks to all of the Sailing with Scissors members and their non-stamping companions for joining our group. I know friendships were formed on this cruise and that is definitely priceless.
Thanks to our wonderful travel agent, Donna Athey who kept us organized, made cute change purses for prizes, and had a nice surprise for us when we started the cruise. Thank you as well to Don and Cheryl Adams, the owners of CruiseshipCenters, Donna's agency who provided the fun Carnival Make-n-Take prizes for our group.
Thank you to Gail Matsuba, who did a wonderful card class for the participants. The cards were awesome. Also, a big thanks for organizing our shopping trip to J's Knicknacks.
Thank you to the staff of Island Paperie in Maui, J's Knicknacks in Waikiki and Taj Clubhouse in Honolulu for the discounts and specials offered to our group. We really enjoyed the Make N' Take at J's Knicknacks.
Thank you to our wonderful dinner staff, cabin stewards and other helpful Carnival Cruise staff.
Personally, I would like to thank all the wonderful people in the Sailing with Scissors group, from the bottom of my heart. You were all so accommodating of my little sidekick. She had good days and bad days and you were all great. I couldn't have done it without you. Also, I received really positive feedback from all of you regarding the newsletters, make-n-take, and this blog. I am blessed to have met the new members in the group, and to re-connect with the people who joined us on the previous cruise.
Thank You, Mahalo,
Until next time...
