Before I get to day two of convention let me do a wrap-up of day one.
Stampin’ Up! was trying to set the Guinness World record for the most cards mailed from one location and we did it with 2,984 cards. We were told about this several weeks ago so that we could bring a card ready to mail. The card had to have a written message inside, verified, and ready to mail. The cards had to be deposited within a three hour window.
You can see that the count was just over 2,000 when I dropped my card. I had a demonstrator take this photo with the mailman and then I took her picture. Shortly after I realized I had lost my new iPad. I went into panic mode but it had been turned into Lost and Found. So thankful for the person who turned it in.
Today, day two, started out with another General Session where we had some great demonstrations and card ideas. We also were told about some great new products that will be coming out soon and I am very excited about them. There will be two new thinlet collections for the Big Shot to make cards with movable parts. There is a new product line coming called Underfined which includes all of the materials to carve your own stamp. It looks pretty easy and I’m anxious to try it. There are some more new things coming which I will tell you about later. Of course there was Prize Patrol several times today however I didn’t win … yet! Keeping my fingers crossed. I went to two presentations this afternoon, one on earning the incentive trip. I have to tell you that I am motivated into trying to earn one of the two trips for next year especially after they announced the destinations tonight. The Grand Vacation will be to Hawaii and the Getaway will be to Washington DC. I would love to go to either of them and how nice would it be to go all expenses paid by Stampin’ Up!
Tonight was Awards Night followed by a party with all kinds of entertainment, fun, and of course food. Desserts of all kinds. Cake, cupcakes, parfaits, cookies, etc. There were a few tables that actually had a girl in the center and her skirt was made to be the table full of desserts.
There were games where demonstrators could win tickets which would be put into drawings for catalog shopping sprees. We played Bingo but didn’t win anything. There were two aerialists who seemed to perform for hours, hanging upside down a great deal of the time.
And there was music and dancing with a group called the Spasmatics.
