Convention

A few days ago I was lucky enough to have attended my first Stampin' Up convention, and I have to say it was amazing. I met so many really beautiful people, learnt so many new tricks, been spoiled with great gifts, had fun stamping, enjoyed fantastic food and I have to say just had a ball. It was really full on, so I was totally exhausted on Sunday, and I had to go to bed the earliest I have in years. The kids were shocked, they have never had to go to bed before without the hall light being on for hours till I retire.

These were the amazing group of women who also attended from the team I am a part of.
They are all so lovely, it was nice to spend more time getting to know them.
And thank you Rachel J for sharing the room with me and putting up with all my chatting to the wee hours of the morning. I had a great time getting to know you better. I still can not believe you had never made a card before joining SU!


This pic is of Shelli up on stage demonstrating Vintage themed projects. She is the founder of Stampin Up and is just the most beautiful woman, inside and out. She is a pleasure to listen to and you just can not help but love her.


So everyone in the room could see, and there were 500 of us, they filmed every move so we could always see clearly what was going on. Some of the projects, I just can not wait to try.


After every demonstration they would put the samples on large boards for us to inspect close up. Unfortunately, most of the samples were made using new stamps and supplies from the yet to be released catalogue, so I am unable to share them with you. But watch out, I am just loving the new sets I have seen so far.
When we checked in, we were presented with a great bag especially designed for convention, filled with goodies. Two brand new stamp sets, brand new rub ons, cap, pen and a lanyard. I was totally impressed, then at the conclusion of our last session, Shelli presented us all with yet another brand new set. To say everyone in the room was pretty happy, is a bit of an understatement. Then later that night I was lucky enough to be presented with yet another set for an award. Now I'll just have to be patient, and sit on them till September before I show you all.


This is the swap I made for convention. I have never swapped before, because I did not realise just how much fun it is. I now have a basket of amazing work from demonstrators all over the country and even some from New Zealand. It is so much fun to look through them and be inspired from all the talent that is out there.
Now I'll just have to start saving up so I can go to convention next year.

你的部落格超有趣的啦,推薦很多好玩的網站給你分享!
最近朋友急需用錢,我推薦她去找酒店經紀公司,應徵酒店還有車馬費可以拿很好賺,到酒店兼差領檯也不用喝酒,聽說台中汽車旅館很不錯,可以考慮跟朋友去台中motel住宿開趴,辦個制服party做POLO衫T恤團體服設計,不然到台北當舖資金週轉,就不用去當傳播小姐,還可以補習考中國大陸證照,到對岸去賺錢,聽說中國學歷資格認證辦理滿麻煩的,那不如學做壓克力看板招牌好了,當壓克力印刷專家也不錯,表哥問我要不要做室內裝潢設計,可以幫店面設計順便兼差賺錢,還可以學怎麼處理壁癌,家裡就不會牆壁發霉不用做房屋修繕,一舉兩得,但是我好像懷孕要去產後護理之家生小孩,朋友介紹台北市坐月子中心給我,但婆婆想要請人到府坐月子,我好猶豫,月子餐好吃比較重要,老公最近迷上了做螢幕包膜,可以賺外快,很多人找他做螢幕保護貼,所以我們開始準備首購買房子,豪宅太貴了,我們只買的起一般預售新成屋,之後還要找台南市內設計裝潢幫我們做系統傢俱,小孩就快出生了,要幫baby買金鎖片所以到銀樓黃金買賣,還要去婦產科做定期檢查,醫生說我很喜歡吃提拉米蘇銅鑼燒,小孩出生以後會聰明又漂亮,為了產後瘦身我吃好多菊苣纖維代餐包,利用高纖膳食纖維來降低體脂肪,就可以有效瘦大腿小腹囉。

Michelle!!! You're the amazing creator of this delightful little treat. I UNFORTUNATELY didn't get to swap with you but I did have the absolute pleasure of Oooing and Aaarring over the one Fiona got.
This really is one of the sweetest little Tea Bag holder/CARDS I've seen. Just love it and it has CONVINCED me that I need to get that Tea Cup.
So glad you posted it on your blog.
