Hello Mr. UPS man

The big brown truck came today, with all of my new goodies! I can't wait to play. Some of the items you see here will end up as door prizes at my upcoming Luau. If you haven't seen the new catalog yet, make sure you take a peek by visiting my website or downloading it by clicking on the link at the right. I have to confess, I haven't been doing much stamping in the last week. I have been obsessed in my love affair with Edward Cullen, Bella Swan and Jacob Black. If you recognize these names you know what I am talking about. I was reading New Moon in line at Disney World this week! I just finished Eclipse today. My kids want their mommy back. :)

Hangin' Out With Shelli!

Here is a picture of myself with Shelli Garner, Cofounder and CEO of Stampin' Up!. I think I was a little star-struck. In my world, she is a bit of a celebrity. :) This picture was taken at the Managers reception held at the Superhero Island in Universal Studios. This was such a fun night, and getting to meet Shelli and her husband was the "icing on the cake". This was my first big Stampin' Up! event that I was able to attend. I am looking forward to seeing her, and the rest of the staff in Hawaii on Stampin' Up!'s annual incentive trip.

Home Again

I am back from the Stampin' Up! Leadership Conference in Orlando, what a great time. I learned so much, I am trying to sort it all out in my head. LOL. Classes, and presentations, and make-n-takes, oh my. We have some REALLY GREAT new products coming out in this catalog (Jan. 19th) and in the future (2009). I am very excited to be part of such wonderful company.

My Leadership Swaps

I should be packing, but instead I'm taking pictures. I am headed to Stampin' Up!'s annual Leadership Conference in the morning. I can't wait to go, I just hope the weather cooperates enough to get the plane off the ground. I made 150 swaps to take with me. That means I am going to come home with 150 new samples for all my customers to see. :) I made 50 each of 3 designs. All 3 designs use brand new products and stamp sets coming out in the new catalog. The floral one is a Naomi original! The valentine one uses the Love You Much Bundle, and was designed by my friend Maura. The one with the bees was designed by my fabulous upline, Karen. Please feel free to leave me a comment to let me know what you think of them.

My Gift

I created my gift for the party using brand new goodies! This is a new Embosslitt, and Raspberry Tart DSP. These items will be in the new catalog coming out on January 19th.

Demo Christmas Party

On Tuesday we had our groups yearly Christmas party. The highlight of this party is our handmade gift grab. This group consist of my direct upline, sidelines, and downline. I am not sure who created which gifts or if they were original designs, so unfortunately I can not give credit where credit is due, but I wanted to share with you anyway. I am so proud to be part of such an awesome group of stampers!
