To Love What We Do . . .

I just returned home from the Stampin' Up! Leadership Conference a few days ago, and all I can say is WOW! Stampin' Up! did an awesome job of inspiring, motivating, and giving us lots of great ideas (and product!) to use in our businesses. At every event there is a "swap-drop box" for attendees to put one of their swaps in for the Stampin' Up! Home Office. When I go by it I usually take a peek to see what's in there, and this is what I found:

This is the Stampin' Up! Statement of the Heart. It exemplifies exactly how I feel about my Stampin' Up! business and the relationships I have made because of it!

Here's another cutie from the same box:

C is for cat
©Stampin'Up!™1999-2011  I love the slightly "off kilter" look of this card, sort of like the harum-scarum way kitties do things!

Lastly, here's an elegant valentine I found in the box:

I LOVE the new "Framed Tulips" Textured Impressions Folder used on here! It's my favorite right now!

Here's a few pics from my adventures at Leadership! From left to right: Meg, Brenda, me, and Cynthia!

Brenda is a sideline (we ultimately had the same upline!), but the other two I met on the Stampin' Up! cruises as a result of my friendship with Brenda. I have grown incredibly close to these girls through the years. Although we don't see each other much during the year, just on cruise, convention, and Leadership, but each time it's as if we've never been apart! Thank you, Stampin' Up! for bringing these sisters into my life!

As you can see we aren't always calm and proper!

Shopping at Memento Mall is always a "must do" at Stampin' Up! events. Memento Mall features exclusive logo merchandise we can purchase to help us promote our Stampin' Up! business:

Before you get too worried about me losing my marbles, here's a close-up:

My "nose ring" is actually one of our Basic Jewel Rhinestones, which are adhesive enough to stick on your nose! Fun!

Throughout the event, Stampin' Up! gives away free product with their "Prize Patrol"!

During the final general session, Stampin' Up! gave EVERYONE this packet of Glimmer Paper, Champange Glass Glitter, and Glimmer Brads!

Now that I'm back home, I am busily getting projects prepared for workshops and stamp camps!

My next event at my house will be Friday, January 28th, 6:30 p.m. for a Valentine Stamp Camp! We will be making 4 fun projects that include a mini card packet, a scalloped favor basket, a Petal Card, and an easel post-it holder! These projects are easily changeable to fit many other occasions, including birthdays, mother's day, co-worker gifts, etc! Fee is $10 for all 4 projects or the class is free with a $35 order! Sale-a-bration starts on January 25, so bump your order up to $50 and choose a FREE item from the Sale-a-bration Mini Catalog!

Contact me at 618-237-6281 or [email protected] to RSVP!

Until tomorrow, have a Stampingrox! day!

How fun, so wish I could have joined you. As for the nose piercing, I thought wow I didn't ever notice she had her nose pierced. LOL... then I kept on reading. Miss our chats!
