Sometimes life isn't about what we bring to it but what we gain. And Convention is no different. I gained.....
New Friends! Between the upline, roommates and folks I met while waiting at airports, it was a great opportunity to meet so many who enjoy what they do.
One of the roomates is a "Rising Star", Cynthia Millan from Ottawa, Ontario. Rising Star means that during your first full year as a Demonstrator you have shown excellence in sales and recruiting! Cynthia also was a presenter for the "I'm Earning an Incentive Trip" class. I truly enjoyed meeting Cynthia and getting to know her.
Another roommate was Darlene, a 78 year old youngster who was running circles around us. She's my role model! She suffered a great loss just days before Convention but her upbeat personality was a testimony. I also have to add that Darlene is an outspoken lady who kept us in stitches.
The final roommate was Susan, our technical guru. Sue was great on downloading all our various photos and compiling them into a file shared between us all.
Butternut Sage Designs and her daughter Lisa. I kept running into them throughout Convention and truly enjoyed spending time with them.
Next year is the 25th Anniversary of Stampin' Up! in the United States! Convention is 18-20 July 2013 and should be a BLAST! If you want to attend with me, let me know and I'll show you how!
