Back From Convention! One Happy Stamper :)


 Hi Everyone! I'm back from Stampin' UP! 's convention and totally jazzed about all the new techniques, tips, tricks and uses for the upcoming Holiday Mini (starts in September). I took my laptop and TOTALLY expected to post each day. I thought the hotel lobby would provide free wi-fi like others...they didn't. I decided instead of the $13 per day for internet access I would buy more SU goodies that now I will have to have lol.

Above is a Make and Take session. I was with my roommate Kathy ( to my left) and my upline, the one and only Dawn Griffith! (second from right.) Pam, Pam's sister who I'll have to get her name again, and Cindy round out the table. Click over to the Convention Highlight page on the right if you're interested in seeing more of the fun we had!

Sooooo many ideas that I don't know where to start. I DO know I will start offering other project classes like the Trick or Treat Decor Pumpkins below! Click on my Classes page to see the dates I will offer this class...Happy Crafting! ~Dee
