Friday Fun Day in Denver

Early wake up call, breakfast, and ready for the day!!! All before 10AM imagine that.  We had a busy day ahead so we didn't want to waste anytime.  Stamping, laughing and girl talk makes it so much more fun to stamp.

We were able to take a break and go for a walk over to the convention center to check things out. And to the 16th Street Pavillions to look through the shops.
Denver Convention Center - Front
Denver Convention Center
Stampin' Up! Regional Registration Area
Mile High Ballroom Ready for Stampers
Downtown Denver

We enjoyed the Manager's Reception at the hotel, then went out for a nice dinner.  Finally back to the Stampin' Studio a.k.a. hotel room to get down to some serious work. We got our jammies on, popped the cork on a bottle of wine and are ready to finish our swaps. We are so excited but we have to get some sleep tonight so can function tomorrow.

Be sure to check back tomorrow for the highlights from the Regional Event in Denver.

Live, Laugh, Love and STAMP!!

Stamping...laughing...staying up late...

We had a wonderful dinner and fun shopping at the local Cherry Creek Mall. We came back to our room and transformed the sitting area with desk and TV into our Stampin' Studio.  Since Laura drove from Kansas, she brought everything we would need to finish our swaps.  So we set up and got started, it was almost midnight, but we said we would work for just an hour or so.....right!! it is now 2:00 AM and we are deciding that we should go call it a day and get some sleep.

My awesome friend and roomie Laura

Stampin' the night away

I will be back tomorrow to show you what we are working on for swapping at the regionals.

Hello Denver, the stampers are here!!!

Today I left Phoenix and flew to Denver for the Stampin' Up! Regional Event this weekend.  I met my dear friend Laura Fernsler from Wichita, Kansas here and we are staying at the most gorgeous Embassy Suites hotel right across the street from the Convention Center.
View from our 12th floor room

Sitting Area
This bed looks so comfy
Refrigerator/microwave in wet bar.
Spa Bath
This desk/table is perfect for stamping!
This will be our home away from home for the next few days.  This hotel is gorgeous, the staff seems very attentive and they have a manager's reception every evening and a full hot breakfast each morning.

Well, we are going to dinner and then spending the rest of the evening shopping.

My Convention Swaps - Part 1

I love everything about a Stampin' Up! Convention.  I have been a demonstrator for 13 years and this year was the 11th convention I had attended.  I look forward to seeing friends that I have made throughout the years and to make new friends as well.  A highlight for me each year is SWAPPING!!!!  I started working on my swaps in May, I held weekly Convention Work Days in my home that my downline and friends could come over and we would work for hours getting our swaps done.  Each week it was good to see the progress everyone was making.  

Today I thought I would show you what I designed to swap at Convention. Ready to take a look at Part 1:
Laura's Big Shot Treat Holder Swap
Blooming with Kindness for Joan's WOW Full Card Swap
Heartfelt for Jane's Black & White Swap
Nail File Sleeves for General Swapping
Option 1, Downline Group Swap and General Swapping
Option 2, Downline Group Swap & General Swapping
I Dig You for Pam's Just for the Kids Swap

I hope you enjoyed seeing a few of the Convention swaps, check back soon for Part 2!!

Convention Bag & Give Aways

  I am back home from the Annual Stampin' Up! Convention in beautiful Salt Lake City, Utah.  I spent this past week with 3500 other demonstrators.  I am inspired to build my business and to share many ideas from my experience. 
 Wednesday morning we received our Convention Bag and later did our Make & Takes. (I will show you those another day). Later on during the week we were spoiled by getting many special goodies....make & take favors each day, new metallic pens at the awards after party, and 2 stamp sets during the closing General Session. If you attended the classes you were given a secret word and received an exclusive "I Am..." Stamp Set.

I received my name badge in the mail prior to leaving for Convention, so I added some Melon Mambo, Basic Black and stamped White flowers with Rhinestones to jazz it up a bit.
On the badge I added the Leadership Award Pin I earned and also the Convention Pin we received in our bag at check-in.

That's all for now, check back for more convention highlights tomorrow.

Traditional Tuesday at Blue Iguana

 It has become a tradition for Laura and I to team up and enjoy dinner with our friends, downlines and sidelines at the Blue Iguana Mexican Restaurant in Salt Lake City, Utah on the day before convention officially starts.  We had an area of the restaurant reserved for 30 and we had a great time seeing everyone again and also meeting some new friends.  We missed those of you that didn't arrive until Wednesday morning.  Next year, plan to arrive early so you don't miss out on this fun tradition!

We all had a great time!!
