Yesterday was my birthday and it was a Great day, my phone kept buzzing all day with well wishes from friends on facebook, calls from a few close friends and about 20 cards in the mail from friends. I had lunch with 2 of my daughters and Rachel at Nalley Fresh in Hunt Valley....YUM YUM salad. Rachel wanted to take SELFIE's of first the 2 of us, then she took about 30 more of herself, most of the time just the top of her head...and this is at the age of 2 1/2!!! We did some shopping and I got a new pair of flip flops, by Tidewater -never heard of them before, but they are really comfortable and for under $10 a bargain......I got these at Greetings and Readings, a card/book store and so much more! My husband and I had dinner at Red Lobster the night before since last night was my Weds night girls Stamping night. We have been meeting for 13 years now, every Weds night. I will miss them in the Winter when I am in Florida, and next spring and summer be back up here with them stamping.
SO, last week was Stampin' Up!'s Convention! Can I say, this was a SUPER FUN TIME. With Stampin' Demos I know from here, to meeting new stamping friends from all over the world, to meeting up with friends I have met over the years at conventions. It was AWESOME! I did miss a few, Michelle Deslandes, Jackie Bultje, Gwen Brown and her sister, Lynn just to name a few. But I will share a few swap cards with you. I made about 100 cards, 90 3x3 cards and 50 3d items. I hope to find pictures of my items I swapped and over the next few days share those as well as some highlight pictures from Convention and share some of my favorite swaps I received.
First up, I walked across stage twice this year, once for $100,000.00 in Sales in my career with Stampin' Up! and the 2nd time for my 10th Anniversary with Stampin' Up! Here are a few of those pictures, not that good, but the only ones I have.
That is all for today, I will have to take pictures of my swaps later today and start posting them tomorrow.
