Stampin’ Up goes way beyond our expectations each year organizing a special event for demonstrators who are Managers and above. There is usually tons of speculation (although no hints given) about where they are taking us.
Of course we are thinking Country music capital here in Nashville so we are all assuming it is a show of some sort! Tonight we got on a big bus that took us to the Wild Horse Saloon for a SU Manager’s Night.
Spouses can attend for a fee so Matt, Darrell, Kevin and Tom were able to join Jan, Deb, Patsy and me this year!
This is a big place with a live band and huge dance floor!
2011 Leadership Convention Bag
Wednesday night, 10 om
We just got off the bus coming back from the Wild Horse Saloon where we had our Manager’s reception event. Stampin’ Up surprised us with our convention bag early! (check in isn’t really until tomorrow morning.) They really WOW’d all of us this year:
It is Espresso and white! Recognize the pattern?
Leadership Convention: Jan 13th Thursday am
This is our first big day! Patsy and I are heading over to the bagel meet and greet (sounds like we are meeting bagels). The card swapping is going on everywhere! Here is my first one from my friend Rhea Hughes:
Memento Mall won’t be open until 7:30 this evening so we have to wait somewhat patiently for the doors to open.
Thurs after lunch…
Our General Session is just underway! Shelli is addressing all of us and talking about exciting changes with SU for demonstrators. (she also said she is not retiring any time soon)
She showed us some great projects she created but it was tough to get pics without the heads and cameras in front of me. We don’t have risers this year and the screens were low. I’ll get better photos once we can see them on display.
I have classes scheduled for the rest of the day but hope to come out to air out my brain.
Here are a few swaps I got today!
Remember they are from my phone and taken on the seat next to me so quality isn’t exactly perfect but I know you want to see some stampin’ and not just me talkin’!
Dinner tonight and Memento Mall, product demos and displays tonight at 7 pm! I’d better get some coffee….
Susan Nygaard (sewing card-isn’t that adorable!?)
