Exhausted, elated, amazed and very enthusiastic !!
Over the following days I will share the wonderful swaps I received and give more information about my amazing team and the fun we shared.
Today is a brief selection of highlights!
The theme of convention was “Share What You Love” and the stage was set with stamps so big you could sit on them!!!
We received an amazing spotty bag with our convention stamp sets and pins when we checked in, you will see me carrying my catalogues in this over the coming months!
5 of my amazing team of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators found out we where in the top 25 for the UK a great achievement.
Kerry Timms at 21, Hayley Gillie at 19, Amy White at 17, Jane Cutting at 10 and I ranked 2nd. I also came top in sales for the UK and 3rd in leadership.
Here is a lovely picture of the top 3 demonstrators in the UK, from left to right, Paula Gorry UK Stampin’ Up! country manager, Michelle Last my good friend and now the UK No1, me 2nd place, Monica Gale 3rd place and Shelli Gardner CEO and Co-founder of Stampin’ Up!
To my complete amazement I was honoured with the Heart of Stampin’ Up! award this year. This award is given to people who embody the spirit of Stampin’ Up!’s Statement of the Heart as they make a difference in people’s lives.
“To love what we do and share what we love, as we help others enjoy creativity and worthwhile accomplishments . . . in this we make a difference.”
This award is so special, you are nominated by other demonstrators and Shelli selects the winner, I can’t remember all the wonderful things she said I was so shocked when she called my name I fell off my chair!
This is a picture of Shelli and I with my beautiful necklace, I’m not taking it off! I have to confess this picture was taken 2 hours after the award was given, I was such a blubbering wreck, shaking and all sorts so the pictures taken at the time are not good!
I am inspired, full of enthusiasm and excitement for the coming year, convention was soooooo amazing, wonderful presentations, projects and classes. The best bit was sharing that with so many of my team, and we would love you to join us.
Next year convention is being held on the 18th and 19th November in Disneyland Paris !!!!!
I huge thank you to all of my customers, hostesses and team for your support over the past 3 years, this is the most wonderful job in the world.
I’ll be back tomorrow.
