I'm BACK!!! Convention News!
Howdy everyone! Wow! What a whirlwind of a long weekend. It was a wonderful trip to Salt Lake City and I learned a lot that I can't wait to share with YOU! So be sure to stay tuned....
As I came home to three joyful kids, an elated husband and a disaster of a house, I'm going to keep today's post short and sweet. There is a lot of laundry, cleaning and gardening to be done around here. (note to self: hire a cleaning lady next time I leave for a few days!)
The picture above are all of the wonderful gifts that Stampin' Up! showered us with while at convention! Can you say - AMAZING! I was impressed with their generosity.
One of my favorite things about Convention was the Service Project. Many of us pitched in to create Birthday Kits for children that spend their birthday's in Primary Children's Hospital in Salt Lake City. The children that are staying there are suffering from complex illnesses and injuries. More than 10 children spend their birthdays in the hospital each month. Many times their parents don't have the funds to throw an elaborate birthday. Insert Stampin' Up! Demonstrators!!! As a group we created 2,000 kits! That's right TWO THOUSAND! That means that 2,000 children will receive something special on their birthday's to spruce up their rooms and help them celebrate. It makes my heart full knowing that I helped to Make a Difference in the lives of these children. This is what Stampin' Up! is truly all about. Making a difference. It really helped to open my eyes to some things that I can do locally to Be the Difference! I want so much to give back, and often think to myself that I really don't have the funds to do so. This project made me realize there is so much more that I can give than money. My time. My dedication. My talents. My heart. I hope in the coming year to Be the Difference to many! For this I am very grateful to Stampin' Up!
We also saw first hand some fantastic products that are about to be released! OMG! I can not wait!! I'll share more in the coming days - as soon as I get all of my photos downloaded!!!
