upcoming event

I just wanted to post that I'm having trouble with my email. They had me shut off again for sending too many at once, UGH. I have to switch email company. So, now I have limited access until tomorrow, My stored addresses are not all in there so if you are interested in attending either event, please email me and let me know. I have one this Saturday at Friendlys in colchester by costco and another one next Saturday the 27th both are at noon and if you didnt get the email just let me know I'll resend it to you.
Both events are card buffets with different cards and with Different consultants doing it with me.
When I do get a new email set up I will send out an email to you all from my new email address.
Thanks for your patience.

Card buffet card

This is one of my cards for the Card buffet this Saturday August 20th at Friendlys in Colchester at noon $5.00 admission and $2.00 per card choosing from 10 cards, choose as many as you wish.
I wanted to show you this card, because I got this idea from Tami White's Blog and I added to it. I loved the idea. You can view her card collection here, her cards were made by Teresa Howe
What I liked most about the card was that it was using the new in colors each on its own card. So here is my tweaking of the card.....Island Indigo
Thanks for looking and until next time........

Some of you couldnt figure out how to sign up last time, so if you just leave a post without signing up then dont forget to leave your name in your post (first and last name) because it will show up as anonymous or something and I wont know who you are. So Good luck to all and keep watching for some more card samples from Convention in the next few days. Have a wonderful weekend.

more convention stuff

Sharon and I got to walk for our 20,000 in sales. Next year my goal is to do at least 30,000. I'd like more but I'll settle for that. LOL. 30 would just make earning FIJI a little easier. I would love to see Sharon make it with me too. We have both been walking for 20,000 together for at least 3 years now and I think its time we bumped it up a notch. I couldnt do it without all of my customers and hostess/club members. Thank you all for your support over the years and looking forward to many more. If any of you want to join me in this business, just let me know. I'm always looking for new recruits. Hugs to you all.

The second photo is just before leaving the stage, everyone usually waves or holds their hands up high for a photo opportunity. I LOVE CONVENTION and I LOVE STAMPIN UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Have a great night everyone, I wont be posting tomorrow because I have a party but keep your eyes open for Blog Candy coming up this weekend.
If you dont know what that is, Its FREE STUFF.
Come back soon

Ok so we held a christmas in July card buffet last weekend and everyone wanted me to post the cards we made. SO, here they are. 3 of them anyway. I will post the others when I get them out. I dont have a copy of Tammys.
These were all Convention Swaps that I received and copied and tweaked. The snow much fun one I didnt change at all.  The Gold ornament one was from Amy Celona and I dont remember who the other 2 were from. I love them all though so thanks to the creators.
Thanks for looking. See you next time.......

Finally some convention stuff

Hello everyone, Its been awhile but I want to try to start posting regularly. I am going to be doing blog candy within a few days so be sure to come back. Here are some photos from convention , the first photo is of my SAM, Becky and I. she will not be my SAM anymore because the program ended but if I reach exec. then I can get her back with a new program. She has been quite lovely to work with and I will miss her. Hugs Becky.

The next Photo is of My new helper with Stampin Up and his name is Rhett. I ran into him while on my VIP tour of the Stampin Up Facility
He and I have chatted once since then and I think he might be helpful to my business so I'm kind of looking forward to working with him. I am ready to earn FIJI. Thats our next trip to earn and this year its supposed to be easier to earn with the new program. We will soon find out.
The next photo is of the owner of the company, SHELLI GARDNER and I. Shelli came into the VIP room for us to have a photo opportunity with her. I had her sign my binder because I already had her sign my catalog when we got them on the cruise.
Now, speaking of the cruise, the next photo is of Amy and I, Amy is the corporate team member that I got to have dinner with on the cruise. She was quite fun and I was surprised to find out after our dinner that she was pregnant but I couldnt tell then, Now in this picture you can certainly tell.
I happened to turn around and she was standing right there so we were both surprised to see each other. So we took this photo op so that I could show slim how pregnant she is now. LOL
Next, is our fun photos with my new friend, Gail that I met on the cruise.
The others in the photos are my roommate and friend Sharon and Gails friends Christine and Anne. We have all become friends and it was quite fun to hang out with all of them. Convention was so much fun that we can't wait to do it again next year.
 Oh and we can't forget our waiter at Olive Garden. He was lots of fun.

Ok so thats all for now but be sure to come back and check things out more often. I will have some awesome swaps to post soon too. Thanks for coming to look.
