Happy Convention

Catherine Projects

Happy, happy from Convention!  I have a few ties for what I'm most happy about…

SU will carry the Big Shot Die Cut machine by Sizzex very soon…mine should arrive later this week!

Shelli Gardner, co-founder and CEO is starting her own blog, www.soshelli.com.  Be sure to check it out and visit her challenge page.  I can't wait to see some of the winning entries.  Customers and Demos can enter!

In the next catalog, ALL stamp sets will be die cut!

I came home with 12 brand new stamp sets.

SU is has a new Spanish Language catalog.

Ok…I'm saving the best news for last…

One of my downline and very close friend, Kim Allen got a Founder's Circle bag and is Demonstrator of the Year #94!   She has worked so hard to build a great business with a loyal customer base and a terrific downline.  This was such excting and amazing news, I could hardly contain myself!  Congrats to her!

For several months leading up to Convention, I begged my husband to join me in Salt Lake City because it was my outgoing Advisory Board year and I wanted him to be there with me.  I was thrilled when we began making plans for him to join me.

Then for my big surprise, I was even more thrilled that he was with me when I was named the #5 Demonstrator for Sr. Associate promotions and the #7 top Demo for Sr. Supervisor promotions in my first level downline.

Then, I was astounded to be named the overall #4 Top Demo of the year.  Wow!  Thanks to my downline, my customers and my family for supporting me and cheering me on as I grow my business and have a blast while doing it!  It wasn't exactly sure where I would place this year and when they named #11 and it wasn't me, I just put my head down on his shoulder and said, “oh, my goodness…I'm in the Top 10”  What a dream come true.

Randall said my hands were so clammy and sweaty and I could feel my heart beating so hard as they called #10, #9, #8 …all the way to #5.  Then next name was mine.  We were both so thrilled!

I teased my husband tonight that Stampin' Up is my rich boyfriend!  I came home with a necklace AND bracelet from Tiffany, a crystal paperweight from Tiffany for my AB year, a dozen roses, a diamond necklace and a gorgeous pink leather purse.  Holy cow am I getting spoiled! 

And it doesn't end there…my boyfriend..uhem!  I mean Stampin' Up is taking me (and Kim!) on an all-expense paid trip to St. George, Utah from Sept. 17 – 22.  I can't wait!

Here I am with Kim right after she called me to tell me she got her bag.  I raced over to the Convention Center to tackle her in my excitement.  What joy!

What a night!
