Stampin’ Up! Convention 2010 – Sydney

Well we’re home after an exciting weekend.  We must thank our hotel for the fire alarm waking and evacuating us twice in one night.. We won’t be staying there again! LOL.  I won’t completely fill the next 5 pages with photos, so I’ll just post a few…. Thursday night my team of Demonstrators met in my room.  We all brought swaps along (where we all make lots of the same item and swap with eachother so we all go home with many great ideas) .  It was great to be able to meet up with team members from around Australia that we usually only speak to through the internet and phone.

Stampin’ Up! held Managers Reception Thursday night where we were greeted with gorgeous cakes and decadant hot chocolateserved in these gorgeous mugs… Which we were thrilled to be able to take home (a clean one LOL) with the matching stamp.  And here’s Me, Ruth and Jenny:

 

Unfortunately the first night in the hotel was far too exciting with our fire alarm going off twice, which meant far too long standing in our PJ’s on a cold street in Sydney, but again it was a great opportunity to mingle with many other Demonstrators staying there!… 

Day one of convention was rather exciting!  New stamps from the coming (in Sept) Idea Book & Catalogue.  Lots of talking, laughing and a bit of learning too! 🙂  Here’s Tina, Chrissie and Alice about to enter!  And the room of happy demonstrators.  I will have so many great projects to show you over the coming months… Far too many to post here now.

Convention went by in a blur and soon it was the last evening already… We were lucky to sit with Shelli & Sterling.  It was Tina’s first convention and she was totally thrilled! 🙂  We had a little trouble fitting in everyone for a team photo… I think there are a couple of heads missing in there..

 

Dinner was rather exciting with the announcement that our next incentive trip will be in Fiji!  And it wasn’t just an announcement…

There were the yearly awards given out as well and I was completely amazed to find out I was #8 Demonstrators in the top 25 Demonstrators for 2009/2010…  I didn’t expect that!  I also received awards for recruiting and leadership, and sales.  I was very proud to see that Ruth and Mandy in our team also received awards for recruiting and sales!

That’s all I have to post today, like I said I tried to it to a summary…  So much happends over convention, that it’s far too hard to post everything.  We do have a great special though, that I’ll pop in here and post about again later.  If you are thinking of joining Stampin’ Up!,  from now until the end of July you’ll receive 20% off the starter kit!  So make sure you contact me with any questions you may have.  I’m happy to send you any info, answer your questions, and support you in your Stampin’ Up! journey.  Have a look at the Join Stampin’ Up! page on my web site too…  We’d love to have you join our team!

    Woo Hoo Kim, it was a fantastic convention. Other than meeting a few people last year in Canberra, this year’s was much friendlier and didn’t we have a ball. I loved the team get together, that was just great!! Weren’t our swaps just brilliant. Also the fact that we all sat together as a group was wonderful too. Thanks for all your hard work, very much appreciated.

    Yet again it looks like such a great time. Pleasssse let us see or know when we can see some of your swaps and knew ideas. Great to see you back. Hopefully the tiredness goes quickly so you can get on with more demos. It is all about “US” now and passing on the new creations. lol KarenC
