Convention

Convention was a little over a month ago and I am finally getting around to writing about it, which is a bit sad because it was so incredible. It was so well organized and the classes and workshops were done so well, that you couldn't help but leave re-energized and ready to create.
I had such fun with my cousin Erin and her friend Carlyse. What a blast! And as an added highlight I saw Kristina Werner. If you have never gone to Kristina's blog, do so. She is incredibly talented and is actually a graphic designer for Stampin' Up! she creates incredible tutorials ans videos as well.
We were also given the chance to tour the Stampin' Up! factory. It was awesome. Talk about clean and efficient. It truly is a well-oiled machine. Here are some pictures of the Riverton factory.
Here is the electronic "picking line".

Everyday prizes were given out and on the last day they had a UPS delivery guy walk out on stage pretending to be lost with a package. Shelli Gardner, the co-founder of the company asked him who the package was addressed to, he paused and looked at the audience and yelled, "EVERYONE". Streamers and confetti came shooting out from every direction, ladies are screaming, it was seriously the next best thing to being on "Oprah's Favorite Things" show. Stampin' Up! workers come from every direction with bags of stamp sets for every person there.
Best of all we got to eat here TWICE!! I can't wait for next year!
