Stampin’ Up!’s Annual Convention 2013
Celebrating 25 years!

Wow, what a whirlwind week of excitement it has been! So many stories from convention in Salt Lake City, UT. Many of you have been following me on Facebook and had the updates live, I will do a recap below in case you missed anything.

The biggest highlight for me, was being honored by Stampin Up as the #1 Salesperson in the company for 2013 (US)!!!!!!!
OMG!!! That really happened…I think…I know I didn’t dream that! HUGE THANK YOU to all of my customers who made this happen. I can’t tell you how much you mean to me and my family, I love you and I owe this honor to you. I hope to continue to provide the service, support and inspiration you deserve throughout this coming year.

I was also named the # 2 Recruiter and #5 in Leadership, and honored as one of the companies Top 100 Demonstrators of the Year / Founders circle. (sorry no #’s on this one, Stampin Up no longer ranks this category).

More of my favorite moments from convention:

  • Having a blast with my BFF’s and demo group!! I <3 you gals, and miss you already
  • Our Stinkin’ Cute pink t-shirts (thanks Esther!!!)
