Leadership 2013

Last week I got to spend 4 amazing days in Orlando, Florida at the Stampin' Up! Leadership Conference.  This was the first time I was able to attend and it was awesome!  SU knows how to treat their demonstrators. 
During the General Sessions, we heard from Shelli (CEO & Co-Founder) and several other staff members who shared great stamping projects, business tips and exciting surprise announcements.  The Dude, You're Welcome kit, My Paper Pumpkin, and special 25th Anniversary Best Of promotions are just a few you will want to check out.  And of course there was the very popular Prize Patrol and several all-attendee giveaways.  Free stamping stuff ROCKS!
In addition, there were tons of beautiful project samples to inspire us and break-out classes with practical training to help our businesses grow.  But to be honest though, the best part of Leadership wasn't any of these things.  It was all the new friends I made.  In the hotel lobby the first night, I was introduced to a group of demos from California who I joined for a hilariously fun night at a local dinner theatre.  These gals quickly became my new friends.  Its the relationships and friendships I've made through Stampin' Up! that have been the biggest blessing.  Here is a photo of us, including my roommate and downline Carolyn (with the sock monkey) at the Stampin' Under the Stars Night in our PJs.
Next month (Feb 16 to be exact), SU will be holding a Regional Event in Dallas.  This event is open to demonstrators AND CUSTOMERS so if you would like to get a little taste of the fun, inspiration and wildly good time, I would love for you to join me.  Registration is open now and will fill quickly so call me today; I promise you won't regret it!
