Hello again!!  I know -- you just fell out of your chair because I am posting two days in a row.  Thought I better because I will be flying all day tomorrow and sleeping all day the next day!!  Convention was awesome today.  Great classes:  "I Am Having Fun," with Shannon West as the presenter, was all that and more.  We learned how to partner with our hostesses to maximize workshop possibilities and include the #1 ingredient -- fun!!!  We had so much fun learning these skills (we even got to dance!!).  Another great class was Carrie Cudney's "I Am Open For Business."  She gave us tons of tips on how to attract customers, and how to find new customers in innovative ways.  Then we had our final General Session, which was broadcast live on YouTube!!!  Here is the link.  If you are a demonstrator and haven't went to Convention yet -- mark your calendar for next year, July 18-20, 2013, so you can start saving and attend this awesome event.  You will not regret it, I promise!!!  And if the video doesn't entice you to go, look below at "SOME" of the goodies I received from Stampin' Up!!  And there is much, much more that I will show you after I get home.

Lynn Schulz and I had a wonderful time tonight at the Pioneer Day Concert, put on by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and the Orchestra at Temple Square.  We were surprised to find out the concert was featuring classical music artist Katherine Jenkins, a world reknown mezzo-soprano and the final runner-up on Dancing With the Stars last season.  Her voice is absolutely incredible, and the concert was really a highlight of my trip.  But enough of that, here are some of my goodies:

I know, it doesn't look like much in this picture - but remember there is lots more.

Close-up of my Convention bag (new SU Pen and Glue Stick inside); Dahlias Adornments, In-Color Ribbon, Jewels, and "Daydream Medallions" and "Affection Collection" Stamp Sets.

"Moving Forward" Stamp Set (Ronald McDonald 2012-13), Convention exclusive "I Am . . . " Stamp Set, and "You're Amazing" Stamp Set; a beautiful gift from Ronda Wade (leather box packed with hundreds of pastel colored Post-It Notes inside and calendar); and my Convention name badge.

Convention Notebook (with some neat die-cut tags inside), two Stampin' Dazzle Markers (Gold and Silver); and the "Mixed Medley" Stamp Set.  Oops, what is that I see in the background???  Well that must be my breakfast, lunch, and dinner for tomorrow when I am flying home -- LOL!!
Okay, it is 2 a.m. Michigan time, and this girl has had another busy day -- so time to hit the sheets (well after I clean off my bed).  Can't wait to get home tomorrow night so I can sleep!!!

Until next time,

Our work is to cast care, God's work is to take care!


  1. Sandi how exciting all the goodies. I am glad U were up to all this as I am still not sure if Convention would be too much. Ronda's mini is a good conditioning though. Oh I would have been ecstatic to see Katherine Jenkins in performance & the choir ain't to bad either LOL!! How in the world did U manage tickets.
    TFS your goodies & hope I see U next month at Ronda's mini. Rest up!! Blessings & Joy!! Gayle

  2. Wow! That looks like a lot of stuff to me! Hope you had an UNeventful trip home.

  3. Welcome Home, Sis. I can tell my your comments that you had a very exciting time at Convention (of course you always enjoy all SU gatherings, right?). Sleep well tomorrow and will try and call on Tuesday.
