Last Week

So I’ve been a little busy this last week. Today we leave to go to Denver. Will spend the night with some friends and then I fly out to Salt Lake City. I’m going to Convention!!!! I’m a Stampin’ Up  Demonstrator, and for the last 3 out of 4 years I’ve gone to our convention. It is a lot of fun. Get to see what is planned for the coming year. See examples of what can be done with our products. Do make and takes. Have workshops. And hang out with some great ladies.(Will give a full report when I get back.)

One of the fun things we do at Convention is swap. It is great fun. You make card fronts and then swap them with anyone else who has made cards. They also do 3D items. This year I made 100 card fronts to swap.

Yes that’s right 100. Some ladies do a lot more. I know a lady who has done over 300.  Now for my sanity I only do 100. I do 20 cards of 5 designs. (Would be too boring to do all 100 the same.)

This year I did 2 male cards. It seems like we mostly do card for women, so I decided to try something different. Besides how could I pass up using this stamp. (My husband rides dirt bikes, for those of you don’t know.)

Second male card

I love the bird in this one.


Fun doing these flowers.

Last design.

I also made a bag to carry my swaps around in. It was fun to make,  haven’t done much sewing for a while.

We also do want we call giftables for those who go to convention that are in our Downline. (Downlines are hard to explain, so just go with me here. :-))  This year we had to do 9!

This is what I made this year. I wanted to make something they could use. It is a birthday  reminder calendar.

Here is a view up close. each one used different paper, but had the same design.

and this is what it looks like inside.

So as you can see I had a very busy week,

and I haven’t even told you about making sure DH didn’t fall off the roof,

or the bread making I did. Maybe next time.LOL

Well off to pack. See you after Conference.
