Today is the start the Stampin' Up! 2009 Convention. This years theme is Inspire - Create - Share. Each year, Stampin' Up! demonstrators from across the US and Canada gather for three days of education, celebration, and motivation. Convention always includes time to swap cards, attend business classes and new-product demonstrations, participate in Make & Takes, and enjoy time with the best stampers in the world!
Each year my biggest challenge is to come up with a swap that I think other demo's would enjoying receiving. Since I am always making them at the last minute, I have to make sure I have enough supplies on hand. And every year I say "next year I am going to plan ahead and make them a month before!" ya right. This year I out did myself I finished the day before I left not last minute for me this year (smiling)!
As you read this I will be moving through the crowd above swapping cards with other demo's. I will share some of them with you when I get home. For now I thought I would share the swaps I made this year.
