By: MELANIE MOORE Idea: Meeting Make-n-Take: At our direct sales network chapter meeting/party a couple years ago we did a pretty cool make-n-take! I totally reappropriated it (nice word for stole!) from Pinterest to write on and decorate with sharpies, but we took plastic ornaments (solid color/round) and sharpie markers & wrote the year really big on one side and then listed all of our business successes for that year all over the ornament with the different color sharpie markers! It was a neat activity, everyone loved it!! And with as cheap as those ornaments are right now after Chri ..read more
