Great experience at Leadership!

Hi!!  What a great time and experience at Stampin' Up!'s Leadership Conference and Regional Seminar!!!  These events are full of excitement and inspiration!  Stampin' Up! really knows how to put on a great event!  It seems like they think of everything!

This year's theme for Leadership is "My Way".  What a great theme!  Shelli Gardner talked about how each demonstratorship is unique and different.  She focused on how Stampin' Up! offers flexibility so that we can each build and lead our business our own way.  

Rita (on the left) and me at the Opening Morning Session.  Rita was my roommate too!

L to R: Sarah, Rita, Sally & stampin' friends!!  Sally & Mary are in my downline and Sarah, Rita, and myself all have the same upline (we are stampin' sisters!!).  We had such a great time together!  It was so much fun to go to San Antonio with these girls!!  Have you ever played Pass the Pigs???  Fun!

I received an invitation to go to the Manager's Reception!  We were treated to hor dourves and drinks before the entertainment that Stampin' Up! had planned for us.

The entertainment this year included an amazing show put on by the Chinese Acrobats!  They were all phenominal!  There were times that I had to tell myself to breathe!!

 Sally won the first prize from the Prize Patrol!  She was thrilled...we were all thrilled for her!  Her prize was the NEW diagonal plate to go with Stampin' Up!'s Simply Scored Tool!!!  Customers can begin ordering this accessory on March 1st.  Demonstrators can preorder one beginning on February 20th!!
It's great to be a Demonstrator!

Look at ALL of this stuff!!  Stampin' Up! was very generous with their give-aways!!!  They just kept giving us more and more products, including stamp sets, DSP (full pack), buttons, ribbon...well just look at the picture!!  You can see everything that we received!
I'm so glad I brought 2 suitcases with me so I could get all of this product home with me!! 

This cute little box was waiting for each of us at our Make & Take session.  The yummy treat inside is 3 different kinds of chocolate bark homemade by one of Stampin' Up! employees.
What a nice personal touch!...and yummy too!

This cute fabric portfolio was another gift from Stampin' Up! during our Make & Take session.  Each tag was personally signed by Shelli!  The fabric will be in the new Catalog starting June 1st.  Yes, you heard that correctly.  The new catalog will start on June 1st, instead of July 1st.  Stampin' Up! introduced a new Catalog Schedule.  I will share more on that soon.

Well, there you have it!!  I have more pictures on my Stampin' Up! Facebook page.  Just search for Karen Graff-Povis, Independent Demonstrator for Stampin' Up!

Hope you are doing well!  See you soon!
