This Year's Ornament Exchange

 

Good morning!!

 

We had a fun time Saturday at our Christmas Party & Ornament Exchange!

 

Everyone had to make 1 ornament, and we had a potluck, too.

Yum!

 

I realized I didn't take any pics of our feast, but everyone helped me remember to take pics of the ornaments. :D

 

Nadine's made by Christine Carrizales:

20221203_160642735_iOS

 

 

And I received Mary Bearss's"20221203_160806921_iOS

 

 

We've been doing this for quite a few years, and it's amazing how many ornaments I have on my tree from it!

 

We're already looking forward to next year!

 

 

Btw, I also realized I didn't take a pic of our mini project.

I'll share that later.

 

Have an awesome day!!

Facebook "Live!" - Triple Cube Pop-up Card

 

Happy Live! Day!!

 

I have to say, today was a STRUGGLE on my Live!

It turned into a 3-part series, because I kept losing my connection!!!

 

So--this isn't truly a Live!, but I decided it was ultimately easier to re-do than try to splice 3 videos together!

 

I made an ADORABLE card!!

I received a Shoebox Swap at OnStage with complete directions on how to make this Triple Cube Pop-up Card!

 

Karen Wipperman used the Gnomes; I used Penguin Place.

 

For this re-do, I had the stamping mostly done, but showed how to score, cut and assemble this fun card.

 

My winners from my last Live! were Terri Kosten, Jamie Rose and Deanna Edwards. Congrats girls!!

 

Thanks for watching today!! (And for those of you who actually watched my Live!(s), THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE!!!!

OnStage Indy--swaps and more!

 

Hey peeps!!

 

Sorry for my absence!

I have so many things to share with you, and I had to put my blogging on the back burner!

 

 

First, I have 2 lists for you...the Last Chance List and Carryover List from the current Mini Catalog:

Everything on the Last Chance List is available WHILE SUPPLIES LAST--and some items are already gone, so make sure you get your favorites right away! 

Click to order with my host code!

 

 


 

Second, I have a bunch of swaps from OnStage to show you! I just hope I grabbed the right names for them....

 

I only swapped with our Shoebox Swap I organized, but half the people we had signed up I hadn't met before!

 

It was fun to meet a bunch of new people!!

 

 

Before I share my swaps, I have to share news and a sweet gift from my friend Julia (BackStage roomie and co-demo council).

 

20221115_181944806_iOS

Julia brought me this gift, because "[I] was special"--because I was ranked #145 in Leadership in the US out of over $40,000 Demonstrators.

 

She's so sweet!

And it makes me both proud and humbled at the same time. :)

 

 

Ok, Shoebox Swaps to follow! Somehow I'm missing one, but I'm not sure which newbie's I have or don't have. I got mixed up at the end, so one of my swaps may be mislabeled. :/

OnStage Indianapolis!!!

 

I'm back with the scoop!!!

 

OnStage Indianapolis was fabulous!!!

It's always good to make new or deeper connections--and get hugs!!!

 

I'll start this time with a bigger group pic:

 

20221112_174747088_iOS

We didn't even get the whole group!!!

Some people didn't understand the assignment. ;)

But I was trying to coordinate this pic when the pretty backdrop for photo ops wouldn't be busy!

 

There were another 10 people or so I wanted in the pic. Oops.

 

I didn't realize til I was blogging last week that I hadn't seen some of these people in 3 years!

 

Hugs were definitely needed.

And there may have been tears. 

 

BEFORE I GO ON, I have to bring your attention to cardboard Rachel!

 

She's a good friend we met in Lansing 3 years ago; Nadine & I visited her last year before a big surgery; and she's an adoptee of my team.

 

She had ANOTHER surgery (6 weeks ago?), and was really bummed she was completely missing the event. (Her progress is taken in baby steps, and she has a long way to go.)

 

So we brought her with us AND I made a scavenger hunt for my Shoebox peeps that included taking pics with her through the day.

 

It was fun including her, and she said "we" had a great day!!

 

If you are a prayer warrior, remember Rachel Markin, as she's dealing with 2 chronic diseases. She so appreciates prayer!

 

So watch for her in our pics! (In the one above, I told her she's shorter than usual! She said, yes, short and skinny! :D )

 

 

On the road with Judy Cole (from Alaska! Yay!!!), Sherry Moore and cardboard Rachel!!

20221111_170854616_iOS

 

Enjoying The Drury Plaza's appetizer bar turned full meal--Mary Jo Snyder, Nadine Stolt, cardboard Rachel & Arlene Dassance!! 

20221111_223208866_iOS

 

When I planned my Shoebox Swap, I didn't think SU! was having CenterStage again! (for a certain title and above) Well, they DID, but I kept my Shoebox Swap and left Nadine in charge after I got it started.

 

I finally met my co-demo council members (2020) IN PERSON!!! And of course, we had to get a pic with the fabulous Shannon West--!

20221112_013146814_iOS

 

Here's our group with a few more of my travel buddies who earned CenterStage.--added Inez Oberg, Donna Melcher, Christi Waite & Carrie Hacker

20221112_013239519_iOS

 

 

Besides seeing each other again, we got to enjoy a dessert bar which also included fruit, ice cream and sundae toppings.

20221112_011337941_iOS

 

The Shoebox Swap went on without me:

TEA-riffic Crafters

 

Shoebox collage

Before I left Nancy Olson & Bev Mamayek brought me cupcakes for my birthday (a week before); Jamie Sales, cardboard Rachel & Nancy are "blowing out the candle."

 

 

The future Silver Elite crew! They're all Silver, working to promote and get extra perks as a demonstrator! (Well, I think Rachel is not Silver, but I know she aspires to be Silver Elite some day!!!)

20221112_140113125_iOS

 

I sat by Terri Kosten & Catherine Popowich. Terri didn't stay at our same hotel; she rode with a different friend she'd met. So I wanted to spend time with her, too! Catherine is about to be an adoptee, I think. 

20221112_135510923_iOS

 

Terri & Sherry got to stand and wave for their accomplishments/promotions! Their first OnStage ever!!!

Terri & Sherri

 

I missed taking a pic of Nadine, cuz I forgot and had to stand, too! But here's a PRIZE PATROL pic of her and Mary Jo!! Do you spy a new DSP???

20221112_160055634_iOS

 

Pics with my cousin, Donna Melcher, and one of my fave [Rachel] pics with Catherine....looks like she's photobombing!

20221112_175023063_iOS

20221112_181556071_iOS

 

**Robyn Scherzer & I walking the stage (& taking a selfie) and celebrating earning the incentive trip!!! Our normal trip buddies (Cheryl Lentz & Sarah Schueler were in VIENNA celebrating Sarah's $1 million sales this year and Cheryl's $500k!!)

20221112_194746826_iOS

 

All my 20-year buddies! Bev Mamayek, Julia Mazur, me & Carrie Hacker

20221112_204631772_iOS

 

 

As I'm getting to the end, I realized I never took pics of the actual CARDs swapped, nor of all the loot we got for attending!! I guess that will have to be tomorrow's post.

 

But here's a quick pic of the NEW MINI CATALOG coming out (going live) January 5. They'll be mailing mid-December.

20221112_144034161_iOS

 

 

Have an amazing rest of your day!!

 

**TRUTH IN ADVERTISING: Less than 1% of all demonstrators earn the incentive trip each year.
