It's great to be back, but in some ways, I wish I could still be there! I love the fun we had at Inspire Create Share 2014. Join me now as I share my favorite snapshots from this year's Stampin' Up! Convention.
On Wednesday, some of the people in my group went to "high tea" at the Grand America Hotel. What a delightful two hours of visiting and sharing. The tea, finger sandwiches and treats were delicious. What a relaxing way to start our stay in SLC. L to R: Katherine, Susan, Mary C, Mary K, my daughter Kasey, her friend Danielle and myself.
Stampin' Up!'s Service Project Drop Off Station. Mary and I dropped our donations off. I love how Stampin' Up! always incorporates service projects into their events. These personal care items will be donated to the local homeless shelter.
Judy and Marlys were out swapping bright and early. This was Marlys's first time to Convention and of course she plans to be back! Judy showed her all the ropes as she is a veteran Convention goer.
I had a "gimpy" foot, falling "up" the stairs just two days before leaving for Convention. This picture shoes it off quite well. I took my daughter Kasey (on the right) and her friend Danielle with me. They spent the week exploring SLC . . . but checked in with me a couple of times at the Convention Center to make sure I was doing OK with my foot. Isn't that sweet?
One of my favorite places to be at the Convention Center was the Recognition Room. There we could relax, chat with other achievers and eat chocolate!
My downline, Angie, on Awards Night enjoying her dessert from The Cheesecake Factory!
Angie snapped this picture of me on the big screen when I walked across stage on Awards Night as a Founder's Circle Achiever. Oh the JOY!! A special thanks to my downline and customers for helping me achieve this honor for the third year in a row.
Here's the bag with the note of recognition, the letter from Shelli and my Convention Badge with all of the awards and recognition ribbons. I am so grateful to have a job that fills me with joy every single day.
This is the awesome chip and salsa bar that we enjoyed at the fun hoe-down party following the awards. I made one trip, but if I hadn't been chatting so much, I would have made a couple more trips. The salsa and chips were soooo good! So was the ice-cream!!
This is the South Dakota portion of my group at Convention. It all started with Angie! From left to right: myself, Noreen, Karen, Angie and Joyce.
When Convention concluded, we all went out for supper at PF Chang's. This is our whole group: Danielle, myself, Marlys, Mary C, Mary S, Karen, Joyce, Judy, Mary K, Noreen, Angie, Katherine, Kasey and Susan.
And then, across the street we went to get ice cream! yum yum!! Kasey, myself and Danielle.
Judy, Joyce, Mary S, and Marlys. It was delicious!! So light and fresh! I could have eaten more!
Mary K and Katherine, too, were also enjoying the special treat. It was a yummy way to wrap up a great week in SLC. We'll be back next year at Inspire Create Share 2015!
As I limped along on my gimpy foot back to our hotel, I took a picture of Danielle and Kasey. What a treat to share this week with them. Who knows . . . maybe someday they will be demonstrators, too!
