Back Home Safe & Sound

Howdy, y’all!

I’m happy to report that I made it home from Leadership safe and sound! 

It was AWESOME!!!  I met so many wonderful people while I was there – Stampin’ Up! is such a fantastic organization and I’m proud to be a part of it. 

I also came back full of motivation and ideas for my business – I can’t wait to get started implementing them.

But first, I wanted to share some photos with everyone.

Here’s a photo of me in front of the main stage:

And I mentioned that I met Scott Nielson (sorry, Scott – I spelled your name wrong in my previous post), one of SU!’s new VPs and a former Yankees pitcher – here we are:

Here I am with my card on the boards:

Okay – that’s a REALLY awful photo of me!  But that was at the very end of the first day – I was SO exhausted!

And here are a few photos from the ‘Lowly Supervisor Dinner’ with the SCS ladies:

Oh – and here’s a copy of the door prize I made for the dinner – I used one of those little mailboxes from the Target Dollar Spot:

So…after I got home (after 1AM on Saturday), I had to get in gear to make cards for a Birthday Stamp-A-Stack I’m holding tonight.  13 women are coming and each is making 10 cards – EEK!  That means I had to come up with 5 new designs and whip up 130 cards yesterday!

But I did it (thanks in part to some of the fantastic swap I received at Leadership!)!  And it only  took about 6 hours to do (did I mention I’m tired?!?!)…

So here they are:

The card above was CASEd from a swap from Lorie Souther from New Cambria, MO – thanks, Lorie!

The fishy card was inspired by a swap I did with someone who unfortunately did put their info on the back – all it says is, “Hand Stamped by Sandy” – thanks, Sandy!

Okay – so now that I’ve bored you with photos, let me share a little ‘ blonde-and-menopausal-and-almost-40 moment’ (and I’m all those things, so I can say that) I had while in Houston…not sure if I should even admit this, but how many people are actually going to read this blog anyway, right? 😉

So I’m in the hotel on Friday morning and I’m getting ready to go.  The hotel had some really nice Crabtree and Evelyn LaSource samples in the room for soap, shampoo, etc  (and you can BET I brought them all home with me!).  I decided that I’d like to try the moisturizer after my shower.  I picked up the sample and without my glasses, could see that it started with the letter “M”, so I opened it up and poured it into my hands.  It seemed a little thin for moisturizer, but that didn’t stop me (can you see where I’m going with this?).  I rubbed it onto my elbows and thought, “Wow – this moisturizer sure does smell minty!”.  On goes the lightbulb (FINALLY) – I was actually rubbing MOUTHWASH onto my elbows, not moisturizer!!!!  Had to jump back into the shower to fix that one!

So now that I’ve totally embarrassed myself, I’ll end my post.  And if any of my new friends are reading this, thanks so much for making me feel so at home while away from home at Leadership!
