Today I received an awesome reminder of my time spent at he 2011 Stampin' Up! Founder's Circle event, our group photos from the event. Which made me realize...I never shared any of my photos. So today, I thought I'd do some sharing!
Boy oh boy, this year's event was the best ever. I don't know how the Stampin' Up! event staff continues to surprise and delight us, but they do!
This was on my room door when arriving.
Yes - we get our very own room. What a luxury!
We got to play Plinko for daily prizes!!
Welcome dinner with my team "The Crumpets" ( Colleen Vassos, Karen Trelfa, Dee Yates, Karen Bernhardt, Karen Duke, Jennifer Campbell and Me)
Hanging with my friends Patty Bennett and Ruth Bingle!
More friends, Dena Rekow, Terry Wise, Barb Mullikin!
Make and Take #1
(yes, new stamp set coming in 2012 Occasions Mini Catalog called "Tea Shoppe"!
My dear friend, Patsy Waggoner doing her make and takes with Mary Fish and Deb Valder. This picture gets me misty-eyed (in a good way). I was SO thrilled that Patsy achieved the top 100. She SO deserved it!
Shelli Gardner (CEO and Co-Founder of Stampin' Up!), doing a little stamping with her daughter Sara.

My team "The Crumpets" again with our "trophies". The final event was held at a golf course and found us zipping around in golf carts competing in fun and silly team activities! SUPER FUN!!

Pillow gifts!! We needed an extra suitcase to bring it all home.
I'm so thankful for to be part of Stampin' Up! It's awesome to be part of a company that SO appreciates their demonstrators and takes the time to honor us in a fun and personal way!!
Also thank you to my loyal customers and club members. As well as to my awesome downline - you're the best!
Thank you~Dawn O
Are you thinking about joining Stampin' Up! this month to get the FREE $100 Product Bonus?
Never in a million years would I have thought I'd be a "career" demonstrator (see Types of Demonstrators). I joined to get the discount and to save money. Look at me now - it brings tears to my eyes to look back on my accomplishments.
In fact, one of my new demonstrators just asked me before she joined, "Are you it in for the long haul?" As she was looking to join with someone who would still be around for awhile, that's a great question!
My answer is YES! I am in it for the long haul. When you're looking for an upline, you want someone who is knowledgeable, experienced, easy to get along with and FUN! But most of all - someone who will be there for you, without pressuring you. I hope I'm all that...I know I certainly try my best. I DO know...with 8 years as a demonstrator, earning 6 incentive trips, 4 years in the Top 100/Founder's Circle, a successful stamping blog and serving on the Advisory Board, I bring a lot of experience to the table that I'm very willing to share with any of the demonstrators in my group. Plus - I've got some nice little handmade goodies for you when you sign up!
Whether you want to save or earn money, now's the TIME TO JOIN!
