OBviously the crop and cruise would be the best gift ever,hmmm. However, I love the Monday Night Class kits so I would have to pick the Calendar class.
Great show today with lots of great gift ideas! What fun!

Defently the best one for me would be "the Slice", since I don't have any other cutter, that is my favorite. ceda3swapp@gmail.com

lisa slocombe said...

Well, the camera couture is already on my wist list, so i'll have to say the strap! i've even posted it on my blog!

Diana K said...

What choose only one of these??? Obviously all of these items would be wonderful gifts to give away to friends and loved ones who create from the heart. But being a good girl this year, I would definitely say the Crop & Cruise would be a gift to keep for oneself.

Well.........the cruise would be absolutely wonderful. However, being as I am an accountant - it is at the wrong time of year for me. So I guess I would say the ribbon holder. How great would it be to have 300 ribbons with you in a portable holder????

I really like the ribbon organizer, that looks cool, it's a must have for me now. I won one of the camera straps at the BC Crop for Kids and just love it. I have already treated myself to the Cruise and can hardly wait for February.

The MY CAMERA COUTURE camera strap for sure - it is already on my list!!

Jodi said...

The cruie would be the best gift ever! Ok, I'm dreaming again.
I would actually love one on the camera straps.

Sara said...

I would love any of the gifts, but I have had my eye on a Slice for awhile now. I would love that!

They are all great gift ideas, but trying to choose one is hard - the Cruise would be great! Thanks for all the great ideas!

I think the Slice would do it for me. I am registered to go on the cruise in February and can't wait.

Big Red Scraps said...

I'd love the cruise too, but the Marvy Trimmer is definitely on my Christmas Wish List.

KD Gowdy said...

They're all great gifts! I will be on the cruise this year...YAH! so I guess that would be a great gift next year! This year it would be fun to recieve the Calendar Club..I have gone to their website often to take a peek! look forward to meeting you on the cruise!...Kim

Laurie said...

I loved so many of your suggestions for gift giving and to add to my wish list (happy to see them on your blog so I can forward them as ideas when asked, 'what would you like?')
I love the calendar idea, love the camera straps, the peel offs, the ribbon holder...oh, you wanted just one single favorite...it would have to be the Cruise!

Jessica Gabriel said...

Wow - a tough decision! Just one?... I too am going on the cruise, so if I had to pick something else, it would be the calendar holder... although the camera strap is cool... and I do have ALOT of ribbon...

Karen Kyffin said...

I would love them all! But if I had to choose one it would be the Marvy trimmer. I watched you use it on the Breakfast show and it looked pretty slick.

they are all great but I really like the cutter with different blades and the ribbon pull-eze. As for the cruise my Mom and I are booked on the 2009 one and really looking forward to it.

Joanne said...

Since I too am on the cruise I think I would choose the calender class, marvy trimmer, ribbon holder.....hmmmm.... I guess I love them all!

Izzy said...

i'd love all those great gift ideas personally... but the Slice, i'd love to have that in my scrap room!

Corlann Alfred said...

Loved all the ideas but I'm a bit partial to have to say the cruise :o) I think I'll add the ribbon holder to my wish list though. I didn't think I really had that much ribbon until I started going through it last night... now I'm thinking it'd be good to get the ribbon holder BEFORE I make it to 300... it would be a lot easier to organize from the start of the collection. It's also handing for the quilting aspects of my hobbies...

Maryann said...

Oh, to have to choose ..... I'll do it by 'need'! My ribbons are really getting outta' control .... so it would be the PULL-EZ first.
I'm very lucky to be going on the cruise and I'm VERY EXCITED!! Can't wait to meet you in person and make a ton of new friends!

The Bridge Leadership Team said...

Although all these ideas are on my Christmas wish list, my ABSOLUTE favorite would have to be the Making Memories Slice!

Already going on the Crop n' Cruise so really looking forward to it!

Allison,

I enjoyed watching you on CityTV. My favorite would have to be the cruise, the paper trimmer, or the Monday Night class!

I loved the Basic Grey kit - an hour, eh. I wonder who could have been timing you ...
