Where I can not be found lately!

I have been Sidelined! It all started Tuesday, with some minor body aches. Nothing that a little Motrin could not handle. By Wednesday, I was sniffling with a few coughs. Thursday, I was having hot flashes.

By Friday, that was all she wrote. I played the blanket game.  By that I mean, I would start out with one blanket. I could not get warm enough, and would add another. Then, I was way too hot. Then too cold again. Hence the blanket game.

Saturday, I was a little better. At least off the couch for most of the day. But, still taking naps (NOT NORMAL!) I don't have time to nap! Oh well, tis the season!

As for today, I realized that almost a week had passed without a post. Where did the time go? I want to share this scrapbook page, that I had made about my dungeon. This is where I can be found most days. But definitely not this past weekend :(  Look for more pages to come!

One of My Plus Ones!

Stampin' Up! has challenged us, to change/add one more thing in our lives, business, etc.

One of my + one is to complete tasks! Like apply paint to my stamp room. I have to come up with a new name for my room. "My dungeon" was the name I applied to my room, and it was fitting. Now with the recent makeovers, I have natural daylight streaming from 2 directions!

I have hung up some lovely little items, that were hidden away. My curio/shadow box, and a picture. Plus I cleaned up some messes. It is now inspiring and refreshing to walk into my creative space.

Tonight, I am hosting a Down-line Dinner. All of the local Stampin' Up! Demonstrators in my group were invited to attend. I feed them a meal and creatively with some new ideas fresh from Leadership. Sarah if you are ready this, I would host you for a weekend (bed & breakfast style!) We will share some stamping, business conversations, and just fun!  :)

Earning a fun night out!

 A live band or two. Cowboy hats & boots. Add in a Stamping song, and you have an evening just for Stampin' Up! demonstrators!

While My flights were delayed and I missed the bus! I didn't want to miss the incredible evening. A taxi & cell phone contact with my one of my uplines directed me to the fun! I helped another Buffalo area demonstrator, to the event, by sharing a cab (with directions).
It is always wonderful the connections you make through stamping. Sharing an interest and hobby, bring people from all over the world together.

Meeting up with friends, whether next door or across the country is always a pleasure. Reconnect with  those you enjoy, over a stamping event! Hosting a workshop is a great way to reconnect over stamping. By sharing  fun & creativity with your friends!

+ one
Leadership Event, Nashville TN January 12-14, 2011

Each and every Stampin' Up! event is fabulously filled, with inspiration, creativity,and recognition. 

I was honored to once again have the opportunity to walk across the stage. This time for my recent promotion to Manager.
I was also allowed the long awaited priviledge of attending Manager's Reception. This year held at the Wild Horse Salon in Nashville. The evening was filled with a live band, and line dancing. Cowboy hats and boots were the evening attire. Despite the multiple cab rides, delayed airplane flights. Stampin' Up! makes the experience incredible each & everytime!
