As always Stampin’ Up! ran an amazing convention, it’s so difficult to explain in words how amazing it is but the 2013 European Convention was awesome!
We took part in more classes, had more sneak peeks, more prizes, more all attendee giveaways and more inspiration than ever before. The talent of the demonstrator presenters, and those who shared their talent on the display boards and in swaps was incredible. We heard business tips, saw brand new products, we laughed and cried and danced it was fab!
I was so proud of all of my team who walked across the stage on Friday night for their accomplishments, in sales, recruiting and leadership, along with milestone awards and incentive trip winners. Many of them walked multiple times, they are amazing!
Kerry walked the stage for her £100,000 in career sales and was 2nd sales in the UK, Rhoda was 4th in recruiting and they both will join me on the incentive trip to the Western Caribbean in May 2014.
I was in the top 5 once again, which was an unexpected honour since I took so much time off whilst Kimberley was in hospital and recovery this summer, so a big thank you to my customers and team for supporting me. That means I keep my record of ranking in the top 5 every year since Stampin’ Up! launched in Europe, I am so very proud! It was a very emotional evening!
This year there were 69 Inspiring Inkees at convention, more than ever before and so many of them attending for the first time. They loved it and you know the most common thing I heard was, I’m going to stay a demonstrator so I can come to convention every year! I’d love for you to join us! We will be in Brussels for the next 3 years of convention.
So how about some pictures……….. first up my awesome team………this picture was taken by my brother Ric, he is a professional photographer who lives in Manchester, so I asked him to take a picture of the team. You can see his website here.
And now for a sneak peek……..there is a wonderful Burlap wreath coming in the new Spring Summer catalogue, I adore it and will be having a class in February ! We are also getting some fabulous tab top punches and a rolled flower die.
Another proud moment was when this lovely lady Liz who is a member of my team, and her team called The Dazzling Dreamers won the Stampin’ Up! commercial video contest! Liz and her team did a great job, lots of hamming it up, and even a little cameo appearance by yours truly!
Here is the video
We got so many goodies, I’ve had to hide lots of them in this picture as they are sneak peeks that you can’t see yet !
And just incase you think that with all those classes and talks we forgot to have fun, you would be so wrong !!!!! A photo booth moment with Sally and Paula !
My only regret is that I didn’t get to spend more time with everyone, perhaps we can convince Stampin’ Up! to make convention longer !
