On Stage

On Saturday we went to the On Stage event in Minneapolis. 
It was quite the day for me! 
I told you a while ago that I have reached the 400K milestone in my SU! career.
I also shared that I received the card, letter, pin, and phone call. 
Now, I got to go across the stage and get a hug from the company representative that was here with us for this event. It was Bonnie Thurber. When you have been to as many events as I have, you get to know many of the company employees. She is one of the nicest people! 
It so happens that I was the only one present at that level achievement so I got to go on stage all alone! Often times at the big convention there are so many that you are in a long line, walking across the stage just waving to your friends in the audience. 
This was special! 

Ann went up to the stage to get this picture. 

Dawn took a couple of pictures of the big screen while I was on it. 
They also put your name on the screen but they missed that. 

Our name tags have a button the has a shape on it that indicates our symbol for a prize patrol. 
Carla, Dawn, and I had the same symbol so we all won the same set. 
Everyone wins, but after there is a demo for a new product they have the prize patrol and that group wins the set they just showed us. 

This is the group that stamped together on Saturday. 
Back row: Carolee, Ann (my upline), Carla (my sideline)
Front row: two of my downline; Sharie and Dawn
Share and I have only missed one convention since we started! 

Back at the room, after we went out for supper, we celebrated with some champaign!

I still haven't unpacked all of my swaps but I do plan to post them to share with you. 

Don't forget to check out the retired list. There are some really good deals on there. 
If you would like to email your order to me and take the chance that the items are still available when I order next week (as soon as I have an qualified "party") or you can order online and get it in right away. If you order online, please use the hostess code
Thank you! 

It is because of all of you that place orders with me that I had such a great time being On Stage at the On Stage event! 
Thank you!!!

Happy Easter!

New Catalog is coming soon!

On Stage was wonderful! 
Friday night I attended Center Stage which is for Silver Elite and above. 
They had a motivational speaker, a wonderful meal and a gift for us.

The tables were set so nicely.

There was a nice salad but it didn't get pictured. 

Main course was chicken that was so tender and delicious! 

Dessert was Cheesecake!

I sat with my upline, Ann and my stamping sisters.

We got the new catalog so it made going to bed at a reasonable time very difficult!

I will be able to order one for you at the beginning of May. They will be here in time for me to put one in with your order from the May Stamp Along. If you don't get one then, I will have them at the June Stamp Along. 

The retired list is out so if you NEED anything from the current catalog yet, check the list by going to my site and the store then retired. Many things are reduced in price. I will be placing an order next week but that is taking a chance that the item will still be available. 
You can order on line if you want to be sure to get it.
Please use the hostess code: 
Thank you!

April Stamp Along

Tomorrow I am heading to Minneapolis to see the New Stamping' Up! catalog! 
I am pretty excited about it as it will be a time with friends and sharing swaps and learning about the new things in the catalog. We will get instructions on the new products and see the new in-colors. 
Yes, I will have lots to share at the Stamp Along on Monday! 
Maybe the new catalog will come with me and you can take a quick peek at it! 
 Here are some of the cards that you can choose to make on Monday.

Spring is here and time to think about flowers! 

A Mother's Day card for those of you that need one. Or you can stamp Birthday instead of Mother's Day. Or you could send one to a young mother that you think is doing a good job raising her children. 

Are you a Cat person? Are you a Dog person? 
I have one for either. 
Aren't they just too cute?

Speaking of is a quick Easter card, in case you still need one more!

The next two use the tie dye. 
 I finally got around to playing with the candle punch. 

Using this DSP, you could color the number of the age of the person that will be receiving the card to personalize it a little more. 

I will also have some swap cards at the Stamp Along for you to see. 

If you would like to place an order on line, the hostess code for this time is

THANK YOU to EVERYONE that has hosted a workshop or placed an order during SAB.
YOU have helped me to achieve my goal of meeting the same amount of sales as last year! 
You, my customers, are very special to me! 

Hope to see you Monday!

More Stamp Along cards

Here are a few more cards that will be available at the Library on Monday.
This one uses the free set Avant Garden. 
The greeting is stamped too high (close to the image) but you can fix that when you stamp yours! 

The dragonfly with some of that free DSP.

These were made using the other free DSP. This is a technique for several quick cards.
You can choose the DSP design that you want. 
When you get your free pack you can cut it and make loads of quick and easy cards.

Hope to see you on Monday!
