Hello! I'm Home!

 Hello card made by Deanna Einarson
Hello my friends!  I have made it home from the annual Stampin' Up National Convention in Salt Lake City, Utah.  I LOVE convention.  I love spending time with other demonstrators, watching stage presentations, taking classes, swapping cards, and getting fresh new ideas to bring home and share with you!  I had a great time.  There was only one small setback... I got sick.  If you have known me for any amount of time, you know this is common.  I go on vacation and I always end up sick.  It's a curse.  I usually blame my illness on recirculated airplane air, however, this time I can't do that since we drove to Utah.  lol  I left home early (too early in my opinion!) on Friday and came down with cold symptoms on Tuesday.  Unfortunately the convention began on Wednesday.  I was sort of in a fog the entire 4 days.  It's good I took pictures of things, because my brain wasn't functioning. lol
Anyway, I still had a great time.  I met a new friend, Lauri, from Baton Rouge, Louisiana.  I called us the "injured reserve" Stampin' Up demonstrators, as I had a sinus/respiratory infection and she had a severe sprained ankle complete with the boot.  I was happy to find someone moving slower and a little miserable, like me!  lol
I have a TON of cards to share and I will be doing so over the next several weeks.  I got the best swap cards EVER this year and I think you'll enjoy seeing them.  Since I'm still trying to fight off the "vacation curse cold," I probably won't begin the postings until  early next week.  :)  Thanks for being patient.

On a final note, there is still time to sign up for the FREE New Catalog party.  I'm taking registrations through Friday because the event is scheduled for Monday night.  Drop me a note at if you want to attend.  :)
