Hello from St George, Utah! I’m here with 125 of my demonstrator friends being spoiled by Stampin Up for a few days. Founder circle is a retreat for the top 100 demonstrators in U.S. And Canada. It’s something special and actually the last year for it so we are treasuring every moment.
We take over the whole hotel, just us, for 4 days! It’s bliss and full of chocolate, stamping and lots of chatter as you can imagine!
We arrived late afternoon Wednesday and I immediately headed to my room to see the personalized name plaques:
And then down to the hospitality room to see all the stamped vignettes and treats:
In the evening we had to find our team, based on the name on our badge. We are the Sunglasses team and what a fun table we had! Top left to bottom right- Karen, Angela, Brian, Kelly, Angie, me and Lorri:
They set each place setting with an easel with a little hand painted canvas. Altho it said BBQ, it was such an elegant dinner.
Back in the room was a pillow gift of some new Products coming out in the next catalog in January- SO pretty!
Every morning we go down and through the beanbag to win a prize:
Stampin Up spoiled us with this beautiful display of olives, cheese and look at real honeycomb honey, which was absolutely delicious! I think the table was so pretty more of us were taking pictures of it instead of eating 🙂
In the evening we put on our pajamas and headed down for our Share and swap night! Lots of good business tips and then the big task of getting us ALL together for a group picture! Then we formed a line of 110 people and swapped our cards. Afterwards we enjoyed these pretty refreshments:
The icing on the cake was coming in to my room and finding this neat pillow gift:
Tomorrow we all take a bus trip to the Stampin Up manufacturing plant, which is always a real treat for us to see everyone who works there and get updated on all the new additions. It’s fun to see how our stamps are made and even though I’ve seen it many times, I never tire of it!
