Convention Highlights 1 and Swap Shares

Hi Stampers!

I'm back from convention and soooo charged up!!!  A lot of pics to share with you today.

First, look at all my FREEBIES!! Stampin' Up! was so generous with us. 

Then, I was awarded two items of my choice for my annual sales of 20k and recruiting. So I chose the Six Sided Bundle and the Festive Flurry Bundle.
So in total, I received, FOR FREE:
8 stamp sets
6 project kits
1 Simply Created Kit
1 Bigz Die
1 Paper Pumpkin Kit
1 punch
1 framelit set
2 sets of Washi Tape (forgot to take pic)
Convention Bag
I would say that's a great haul!!

Wednesday night our umbrella group Udderly Awesome, led by Sandy Hancock, had their meeting. By the time everyone arrived, there was over 200 people in the room.

Here's my girls, Chris and Velinda in the midst of swapping at the Udderly Awesome meeting. Margaret is looking on. Chris had the best swap out of all of my team. I awarded her with a free pack of Designer Series Paper. So Chris, don't forget to let me know your choice!

While we are waiting for the Opening General Session to start, there is impromptu dancing in the aisle. Here's Margaret and Marie doing the Electric Slide with a group of other demonstrators. At the closing General Session a group of us, even me, did YMCA. 

Then the "all glorious demonstrator bag"!!! We were waiting and waiting to see what they looked like this year. This is all the excitement when it was being passed out to all the demonstrators. It's a nice back pack with a padded section for your computer and many more pockets.

You've all heard me talk about general swaps and organized swaps. Here is a pic of an organized swap. 80 demonstrators signed up for this particular swap. It was all occasion cards. Can you imagine making 80 cards for one swap?? Plus your general swaps! 

These two lovely ladies are Bobbi on the left and Janine on the right. We look forward to seeing each other each year. Our dear friend Debbie couldn't make it this year. She was truly missed. Love you Debbie O!!

This is at Macaroni Grill with our upline, Sandy Hancock in the red sweater. L-R: Me, Margaret, Sandy, Anne, Velinda, and Marie.   Chris was taking this picture. We have a hard time getting her in front of the camera. She didn't know I was taking her pic earlier!

The last three pics are swaps someone else received, but I liked them so much I took pics. 

Keep checking back. I've got more pics and swaps to share. 

Thanks for stopping by today.
