That’s how I felt when I drove home last night from Regionals. The whole thing was just amazing. It lit a fire in me on so many levels! It was my first official SU event and I was pretty nervous! LOL! I went by myself, drove 5 hours to Ft Worth, and I was just coming off being sick all week. I came very, very close to not going! But, I thought about the HOURS I spent on my swaps, and I thought what a waste if I don’t go!
So, I did, and it was AMAZING! I learned so much. I met so many people. I met some blog readers, which blows my mind because I swear my mom is the only one who reads this! LOL! No, I know she isn’t the only one, but sometimes I think “Is anybody out there??” LOL!
The highlight of the day for me came at the very end. Shelli Garnder, co founder and CEO of Stampin’ Up, chose her favorite card from all the swaps. She actually chose three. And, guess what. My mushroom card was one! OMG! I swear I thought my heart would beat out of my chest! It was so crazy! I got to go up on stage and she hugged me and handed me a handmade card with a shopping spree in it! WOW…. I wish I had a picture of that moment. Pretty much indescribable! I’m new to all this, so I still fill like a baby Demonstrator… I can’t believe it… Have I said that already??
Anyway, this is the card that won me the honor
My husband asked me how many people were there, and I am so not a good judge of this. Maybe 500?? Maybe I am off, I don’t know. This is the stage form the back of the room. I was about 3 tables back from the front and was sitting with a fun bunch of ladies, whom I had never met! I feel so lucky to have met Robin especially! (Hi Robin!) SU people are so nice! 🙂
First up was Shelli Gardner. She is such a great speaker! She showed us some things she has been working on that include SU’s new fabric. This is a cute little card holder. So, guess whats on my order today? Yep, fabric…LOL!
And, I LOVED this! This was actualy a WW on Friday, but I saw the sample and heard from others that this was made out of a coffee filter! Amazing! It is from Sharon Cheng
Lastly, here is a display board of a new stamp set that will be out in the Occasions Mini in January. Yea, I want it BAD! It’s called Eat Chocolate! And, guess what. You and I can both get it! What?? Yep, if YOU would like to join my team and do these amazingly fun things with me, please email me so I can tell you how we can both get this set for free. You can also get a gorgous supply tote for a limited time too! Its so pretty!!
