Stampin’ Up! Leadership 2015- Day 1 Recap

So, after going to bed Wednesday night/Thursday morning at 3:30am and then getting up at 7:30, I told myself I was going to go to bed by midnight tonight.  (I couldn’t really go to bed earlier than that because I had an event that didn’t get me home until 11pm)…. so, it is now 12:45am and I’m still wrapping up everything.  Seriously, someone teach me how to travel and actually GET sleep! Smile

Today was the first day of the Leadership Conference here in Orlando for Stampin’ Up and it was FULL of information, tummy cramping laughter, great friends, and amazing project ideas!  I hope you don’t mind indulging me as I relive the day a little.  (and you can see ALL my pictures from today over on my Facebook page – Leadership Day 1 photo album)


So after getting a late start we headed to the convention center to get our bag and say hello to new and old friends around the convention center!

I was a total slacker, but my sweet friend Karina Chin gave me this amazing bag tag and notebook!

I was so glad to have a few of my Fun n’ Crafty stampers and downline here with me, it made it so much fun to be able to share this with them!


Even though we spent literally all morning and early afternoon going over compensation plan changes for demonstrators that are coming up in October.  I don’t mind math… but being tired and trying to do math is way harder! Smile

We got a nice lunch

See, when she was showing how to make these feathers using the new Cotton Twine and Washi Tape… she didn’t tell us she was making a feather at first and with the white stringy tail it looked like something a little different that had us all dying of laughter including Shelli when she realized  (think feminine product with a string ha ha)

They even gave us ALL a stamp set she was using! Smile

Then in the evening it was time to head to Manager’s Reception!  A fun night out for any demonstrator with the title Manager or above.  So Karina and I were ready to grab the bus and go!


This year they rented out part of Disney’s Hollywood Studios and though it was a bit chilly, we had a chance to mingle….IMG_7268

You know, me and my buddy Shelli Gardner Winking smile

We also had a private showing of Fantasmic


Photo ops with the Mickey Mouse and friends…


Yummy desserts! Isn’t that cake pop adorable???


And even a hot chocolate bar… care to guess how many scoops of marshmallows went into my cup? Don’t stop at just one! Smile


So all in all, a great first day! Next up, more great sharing of business ideas from demonstrator speakers, more stamping demonstrations, more samples, and more playing with the latest products!
