What a fantastic weekend it turned out to be! Not only did I get to spend it with my fellow Stampin' Up! peeps and see and play with great new product coming out in the 2017 Occasions and 2017 Sale-A-Bration catalogs, but I was completely amazed to find out what I had achieved.
My recognition included walks across the stage for sales, recruiting AND leadership. I was among those that got to attend a special dinner event on Friday night (before the Saturday conference) called CenterStage. And...
I found out that I made Global Top 100!!!!!
That means I was ranked as being one of the top demonstrators in the world! It's mind boggling!
In fact I am number 67! What?!
I received a personalized charm wrapped in a box with a tag signed by Shelli (the co-founder of Stampin' Up!) and Sara (the CEO and Shelli's daughter). I also will be getting a jacket for this recognition.
How thankful I am to be surrounded by so many wonderful people that helped me to get there, because this award is NOT one that a person can earn alone. I earned it because of my team (my community of Stampers With ART), my supportive network of demonstrators, my social media and blog followers, my customers, the great employees who make this company so great and easy to be a part of, and my family and friends who have supported me as I've grown into this passionate place I am at in my life.
Thank you so much.
It was so hard to hold these secrets in for so long, but it DID allow me to go out and enjoy a celebratory dinner with my husband and kids last night since there was nothing I could share until 1:00 PM Mountain Time today. :)
Do you want to see photos of things I couldn't share until now?! Woo hoo! Here are the new catalogs that I can't seem to put down. I even took them to bed with me last night. (I can't share the pages until the catalogs go live on January 4th. It's one of those demonstrator perks.)
Here are all the goodies I took home with me from the event. (Our group attended the OnStage Local event in Madison Wisconsin.)
And here are photos that show off some of the new products coming in January and show more of the fun experiences of my weekend.
The table decor was very inviting.
This is another walk across stage with Susan, Meg and Cheryl in recognition of our 160,000 + flex points. We are going on the trip to Thailand!

Joanne and Vicki
Nancy & Kayla from our group (on the right) had awesome table mates. Bummer we couldn't get all our group to sit together. In fact, I didn't even get a photo of Maria. But we all had a great time networking and making new friends.
Shelley, Jeannine (peeking over my shoulder) and JoAnn
My sweet sister demo, Kelly swapped prizes with me!!! See the two new upcoming stamp sets!!
And now here are just a few samples showing off new product that will be available January 4th in either the Occasions Catalog or the Sale-A-Bration catalog. Some photos I took while samples were being presented on stage and some are from the display boards that I didn't get much time to peruse.
Our celebratory group dinner
I love my Stampin' Up! family!!
I hope you enjoyed the sneak peeks.
Thank you so much for being a part of my world. Hugs!
