Wow...Running on E..!

Well, today is the last day of Convention.  It's been a blast!  I've met so many fun and energetic demonstrators, learned lots (and I mean lots) of really cool techniques, and certainly learned a lot about how to have fun while sharing what I love to do.  Stampin' Up really knows how to support their demonstrators!  Check back later to hear about my last day at Convention...

So What's a Swap?

I shared with all of you the recipe cards I created to swap with other demonstrators at Convention.  Swapping originally designed cards and 3-D images is a fun way for demonstrators to share their ideas and creations.  Here are some of my favorites I received from fellow demonstrators.

Great Class Today and Lots of Celebrating

Today was filled with lots of learning from how to strategically design to-die-for savvy projects in the "I Am Savvy" class with Donna Griffith, to learning more about the wonderful Stampin' Up business opportunity in the "I Am Doing Business 'My Way'" class with Tami White and the "I Am A First-Time Recruiter" class with Jill Leigh.

Here are some of my favorite projects on display.


 After a day of learning, I attended the annual Awards Night and Awards Night After Party.  We had lots of fun...
The Best part of the day was finding out that I had been promoted to Senior Associate!
