convention - day 4

Our last day of convention started with General Session. The excitement in the room was high from all of the celebrating the night before. You would think us stampers would have been tired by this point, right? Not a chance!

I felt so lucky to have met many many demonstrators who came to say hi and offer congratulations. I am definitely a people person and loved making new friends. I only wish I was better with remembering names. Thankfully many of them added me as Facebook friends so that I can try to remember them for our next conference.

We met at leadership years ago and have become great friends! 
In the morning general session Stampin' Up! celebrated career sale milestones and anniversaries. I walked for $200,000.00 in career sales. Many of my Stampin' Sisters walked for 5 year and 10 year. My upline Lynsay Mahon walked for $600,000.00! It was so exciting to cheer for everyone when they had their moment on the stage.

After general session we had break out classes. I had to miss one class to stand in line to get my photo opp with the Artisan and Founders Circle plaque. So worth it though. I am pretty darn proud!

Stampin' Up! had posted the Artisan Design Team photos, bio's and projects on a board. It was amazing to see my name up their with all of the other 15 talented ladies. 

At lunch I joined some ladies that I had never met. We share business tips and I autographed their Convention Programs. Te-he-he ... me, autographs!? 

Before we knew it closing session was upon us. Stampin' Up! had us laughing with a game show, swooning and stamping presentations and crying at the convention highlight video. Watch the video here.

It all went by so fast! Some of our team went shopping and some went to dinner. A few of us headed for the pool ... that is exactly what I needed after four days on my feet. We had so much fun that we did not want to leave. We sent someone on a wine run and ordered pizza. The hotel let us break the rules and eat pool side and stay up late. I think I sat by the pool for 12 hours and got to bed at 5:30 am. Who says that Stampers are boring? 

I am still trying to catch up on sleep but am totally rejuvenated with my business. I have a lot of ideas in my head. Watch for projects, classes and events coming your way soon!

Thank-you for reading all of my convention highlights. It has been fun to re-live it and share it with all of you.

Have a creative day!
