Convention Swaps

I thought I would share with you today a couple of pictures of a couple of the organised swaps I signed up for at Convention. My offering for the 3-D Swap was this one with the Pheasant from the Autumn Days stamp set (I love the versatility of this set) This is a covered photo album with space for 36 photos. I thought they would be a great idea for my swap buddies to have a lasting keepsake of our amazing experience in Bad Homburg. They can use them for either photos or even pop some of their received swaps inside.

The other organised swaps I joined were for Card Candy and these are my two offerings for those. I was amazed at the card candy sets I received and so glad that I took the time to join the swap.
If you too would like to be able to join in the fun at our next European Convention which will be held in London AND if you would like to become part of my Stampin' Up team then please do not hesitate to contact me.

Back from Convention

Hi everyone

I am back from my trip to our FIRST ever European Stampin' Up Convention in Bad Homburg Germany.Before I say anything else I want to say the hospitality I received in Germany was second to none. I travelled with my husband and nephew and we all had a wonderful time. We did not stay in the actual Convention hotel but the one we did stay in , the Park Hotel was lovely and the staff there were brilliant.

I have been counting down the days to Convention for months and it was EVERYTHING I expected it to be and so much more. So many different things made this an experience that I will remember for a long long time.

  • The sample boards which were filled with some awesome projects

  • Workshop WOW demonstrations on stage

  • Gorgeous make and take projects packs

  • That unique special feeling of being part of an amazing event in our European SU journey

  • Seeing the pride on the faces of every one of those demonstrators as they were welcomed on stage to receive the awards for their hard work

There were two other things that made MY Convention experience for me...........

The first is the many swaps I received from all the other demonstrators who attended Convention, their work is awesome and I will be aiming to share many of those swaps with you here on my blog.

And finally.................

the joy of spending two whole days in the company of some lovely people who I hope will become real friends as we continue our Stampin' Up journey together. I hope we will all get to meet again at the next Convention in 2010 and that by then we will be joined by many more. Here is a picture of just one of the groups of existing internet friends I have made since joing Stampin' Up! It was so wonderful to be able to meet these people in real life and put faces to names at last. Also present here were my Upline Jenny and my Downline Jill.

SU Convention Bad Homburg, Germany 2009

Hi Everyone

Just a quick post to say "hello" from Bad Homburg in Germany, where I am attending the first ever European Stampin' Up Convention. I met up with my Upline Jenny and another Demonstrator Jo for a quiet drink this evening and here is a picture of us just relaxing in the bar at their hotel.
I must get off to bed now as I have an early start tomorrow morning and don't want to miss a single thing. I will try and get online tomorrow night to share some Convention pictures with you.
