Stampin’ Up! Convention 2013 – Miriam Thomas

Stampin’ Up! Convention 2013

| Posted in Uncategorized

It is hard to believe that it has been a week since I’ve returned from the Stampin’ Up! Convention in Brisbane.   I had such a lovely time.  There is nothing quite like being in the company of like-minded people enjoying what Stampin’ Up! has to offer.  A week of cocktails and evenings out for dinner and great company instead of the school run and endless piles of washing is always a bonus too!


I arrived in Brisbane at what would have been 3am WA time and I got no more than 1 hour’s sleep on the plane after a journey that started at lunchtime the day before.    Fortunately there was lots of fun and inspiring stuff to keep me (mostly) awake for the day at our Leadership sessions.   On that first evening we had a special Manager’s Reception where we were treated to an absolutely divine meal and showered with lovely gifts.   Most of all I just enjoyed the opportunity to catch up with lots of lovely friends

In the  days that followed we had inspiring presentations,  ‘break-out classes’, opportunities to see NEW products up close, sessions in the main theatre, displays, memento mall, prize patrol (give aways) award presentations and even a live band and dancing at our ‘after party’.  I received a Leadership award.  It is always so lovely to congratulate other demonstrators on their awards too.   We were rapt to see sneak peeks of new products and even got our hands on the brand new 2013-2014 Catalogue.  (Don’t worry it won’t be long before I will be able to share it with my lovely customers and friends)

One of the highlights for me is seeing CEO and Co-Founder Shelli Gardner presenting on stage.  I always love her warmth and inspiring projects.   It is no wonder Stampin’ Up! has just moved from strength to strength in the past 25 years.  I left Convention inspired to “Be the Difference”.
