Seriously, I have never taken so long of a vacation! I must admit the less I work the harder it get's to get back in the routine. I do miss the crafting but felt that I needed to catch up with my girls. To have earned Alaska Cruise, then to be invited to Greece by friends was offers we could not resist + Tony and I work so hard that vacation together is the time we truly catch up on things. But then when I got home from convention, I did feel I needed to give my full attention to my sweet daughters. I have been home for more than 1 week and now they don't need me as much, scratch this, it's back to being the taxi driver, YES they do need me! lol I'm kidding, we had fun this weekend boating with friends and the family. I really do miss my craft room and do miss your comments and heck we have a new 2011-2012 catalogue and plenty of new projects that I can't wait to get my hands on. So let's get the ball rolling!! Chop chop as I say to my girls when I want things done.
As I mentioned in my last post, Convention was the best, as I make new projects, I still want to highlight a few things in my next few posts. First of all, Shannon West asked me to be a presenter, I was truly honored. I love Shannon and her work. The best experience of my life! I recommend this opportunity and wish it upon every Stampin 'up! demonstrator in the US and Canada. I have made so many new friends. Got over my fear of stage fright, especially talk in my second language English. I did manage to say a few Canadian EH! I also was so excited that Anthony, my dear husband came to Utah! just to see me. He actually loved the place, loved the dry air and the shopping too. If you see him ask him how was his experience at Buckle, a clothing store? The demonstrators from my team didn't give him enough a hard time so HE WANTS TO COME BACK! I truly appreciate the support he has given me, and without him would have not made it as #3 Demonstrator of the Year in Canada.
I wanted to share a page that I am going to mount on a canvas for Megan for her room. I presented it step by step during my presentation at convention. I used a big picture because they appeal better on walls. For this project, I used the Pocketful of Posies bundle #2 that demonstrator got for free depending on their title. In italic below is what came in the kit! As I said in my presentation and I will say again: I love how stampin up! has included in the new 2011-2012 catalogue a section that shows you how to build an Letterpress sandwich. I was afraid of letterpress before but I'm not anymore:) check it out on p.217 of the new catty.
