Unintended comedy. At its best.

 

I hope everyone had a wonderful thanksgiving!

 

Ours was good!

And simple.

 

Family, football (watching), food and Euchre.

 

YOU know I always forget to take pics.

(eyeroll)

 

 

I wasn't gonna forget this time!!

I don't think we've taken a family pic in 2 years!

 

So I MADE everyone take a pic with me.

 

Tyler took the selfies.

IMG_8092

 

And I asked Todd's dad if he'd take a pic with just the 4 of us.

 

He said, "I don't know how to work those things!"

 

I told him, "Just hold here, and push this white button to take the pic."

 

 

So we lined back up....

and were smiling pretty....

and suddenly we heard the BURST of pics being taken.

 

Dad is hard of hearing, and DIDN'T hear the burst of pics.

 

 



So there ya have it.

 

Great way to end the day!

 

Love him.

Thanks for the memories, Dad!

Back to Business!

 

Hello again!!

 

Before I share a bunch of STUFF, here are a couple beautiful thanksgiving swaps for your enjoyment:

 

Swap created by Mary Lang, www.dazzledbystamping.com

Swap created by Mary Lang, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

Swap created by Jan Rodrian, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 


 

Ok, FIRST, Online Extravaganza is coming up!

(you know....Stampin' Up!'s Black Friday?)

 

 

** ONLINE EXTRAVAGANZA STARTS SOON!! **

 

I'll have details tomorrow, but I know at least some sort of deal STARTS this Friday, 11/23.

 

Click here to order any time:

 

Shop online 24/7!

 

 


 

SECOND, Stampin' Up! identified a gap with some internal (system/computer) communication as it relates to inventory and forecasting.

 

They've fixed--or are working on fixing--the problem, but in finding it, they realized several of our Holiday Catalog items may be depleted before the end of the catalog period and the lead time is too great to cover this gap. They could become UNORDERABLE as early as this week. SOME already are.

 

If there's something on this list that you really want, ORDER NOW!

(I DO have all hostess codes posted in my events for clubs in December, too.)

 

 

Here's a pic of the updated list:

If it's already crossed off, it's gone; if there's an asterisk (*) next to it, it WILL be available in a future catalog if it happens to run out early.

 

Products potentially depleted early!

 

 

Oh--Stampin' Up! DID make this previous hostess incentive, Dashing Along DSP, available as a replacement option for the Joyous Noel that is already gone:

 

click to order Dashing Along DSP!Dashing Along DSP, #149903, $11.00

 

 

 


 

THIRD--REMINDER:

 

It's my birthday month!!!!

EVERY order of $50 or more this month will be entered into a drawing for a $50 shopping spree!!!

 

HB

 

In addition, if you apply my hostess code Z7R6K6VF to your $50 online order , you'll receive a free pkg of Basic Rhinestone Jewels from ME!

 

 

Shop online 24/7!

 

 


 

FOURTH, the White Velvet Paper is gone already, but the rest of the Snowfall Showcase is still going on--JUST THIS MONTH!

 

Here's a sample I gave away and demoed on my Facebook Live!, plus another one I showed:

OnStage Orlando & Keepin' It Real

 

I apologize AGAIN for the delay in sharing with you!!

Grab your cup of coffee!

It's gonna be a long one cuz I have lots to share!!

 

It IS technically still MY weekend!

So I'm not late. :D

 

OnStage Live! in Orlando was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!!!!

(but it kinda kicked my butt....I've been struggling to get back into things since I got back!)

 

For those of you who haven't heard me talk about OnStage before, it's a training seminar Stampin' Up! hosts for its demonstrators.

 

The LIVE version is 3 days long.

Before now, I've only ever been to the LOCAL/1-day version. Those are held throughout the markets where there is NOT a LIVE version going on.

 

Local is FUN!

LIVE is SPECTACULAR!!!

I kept hearing different numbers of attendees, but I'm going with...there were over 7,000 demonstrators celebrating together!

 

 

In case you didn't know this already, STAMPIN' UP! IS AN INCREDIBLE COMPANY!

And I'm proud to represent them!

 

The thought and effort they put into this fabulous 30-year celebration in indescribable.

 

So much energy and love and laughter and fun and tears (yes, you know me!).

 

 

We received our Occasions and Sale-a-Bration Catalogs (won't go live until January 3) AND SO MUCH FREE STUFF!!!!!

 

This is most of the stuff I came home with--most of it from SU! but also my swaps and other gifts from friends:

 

OnStage Orlando SWAG!

Yes--stamp sets, bags (one is zippable back into a pouch), a beautiful tool kit and so much more!!

 

I loved having part of my Dazzling Demos Team there with me--Nadine Stolt and Deb Anderson.

 

We had a great time together!!!

 

IMG_7875

 

IMG_7939

 

 

 

Here's a highlight video from OnStage (and CenterStage, for Silver Elite & above) Live and Locals around the world:

 

 

 

And we're all working on the rest of our team coming to the next OnStage Local which is in Minneapolis. (Actually there are many locals in the US, but this one is closest.)

 

ANY demonstrator/any title can go!

Do you wanna join my Dazzling Demos Team and come with us???

 

 

Another of my favorite parts of OnStage is making new friends and seeing good friends I've made over the years.

 

In this first pic, I'm pretty ragged.

It was my travel day; I never slept the night before I left for Orlando (still working on swaps)--AND it was hot in Orlando. I know--poor me.

 

This is actually taken at a (party room?) at Epcot. (A pass to Epcot was a perk for Silver Elite and above Demos.)

 

This is my Cruise Family; we met on the Alaskan Cruise and all earned Greece as well:

IMG_8028Sara (Cheryl's upline), Steph, Cheryl & Lisa Marie

 

I was so happy to see them again!

 

I found another friend, Cindy, at CenterStage, but it took a little effort!

(What did people do before texting and cell phones???)

 

The funny thing is we never got a pic TOGETHER!!

We discovered we don't make good friends cuz we BOTH forget to take them!

 

Here's all I got at first:

CenterStage Screenshot

Haha! Then I got this. AFTER I found her:

IMG_8034

It's the only one I got of her!

Maybe I'll have to photoshop us together!

 

I got to see my friend Dawn (that I shared her video a couple months ago.):

IMG_7880

We cried together. We're BOTH puddles of emotions! ;)

Did I tell you she made it to Greece??? YAY!!

 

OH!! And I got to see my friend Sharon that I met on my very first incentive trip (weekend getaway) to Washington DC!

IMG_7972

Good thing SHE remembered to take a pic before we left!!

I haven't seen her since 4 years ago? when I met her!

I MAY have cried when I saw her...

I dunno--I was just so happy to see her!!!

And she was like, "why are you crying??"

You know me.....

 

 

 

 

And my team (and everyone else there?) took pictures with Shelli:

IMG_7940

 

We met lots of people.

One was Wendy.

She makes me happy.

She introduced herself to me with, "I like all your ribbons." (I'll tell you about those later.)

How can you not love that?

 

Well, when I totally fell in love with her was when her number was called for Prize Patrol (all giveaways--some are for your assigned number; some are announced as "all attendee giveaways.")

 

She was up out of her chair, screaming and jumping around!!!

Hahaha!!!! I LOVED IT!!!!

Stampin' Up! obviously wants us to be excited!

There was no need to instruct Wendy to do that!!!

When others' numbers were called, she leaned forward and was like, "why is no one getting excited???"

I told her I'd make her proud when I was called. ;)

 

Here she is after she calmed down a little:

IMG_7883

Here's more of us before we left Orlando:

IMG_7969Steph, Wendy, Nadine, Deb, Anita

 

 

Ok, so back to the ribbons....I got several and was really excited about it!!

Everyone gets one with their title on it.

People with achievements earn an additional one for each specific achievement category.

IMG_7977

I was really excited that I got to walk the stage (instead of just standing and waving like we all did for some) for 3 of my achievements!

 

I was even MORE excited that ALL 3 of those were the same ones for which Lisa Marie got to walk the stage!

(Actually she may have had an extra.)

 

She took a selfie of us on stage:

IMG_8065

Us on the jumbo tron:

IMG_7932

 

I TOLD Wendy I would make her proud! ;)IMG_7933

 

Then ALL of us got to walk for earning Greece!

(And I found out Dawn and I aren't the only puddles of emotions! Cheryl is right up there, too. Makes me feel so much better! :D )

IMG_7936

Lisa Marie, Steph, Cheryl, Sara (& I'm not sure who else?)

 

One more--Career Sales:

IMG_7954

IMG_7951

 

IMG_7952

So $400,000 Career Sales is quite an accomplishment--that I have YOU, my customers, to thank for it!

Thank you so much!!

But I have to tell you...THE #1 Demo in sales for the US had $445,000 for her YEAR!

That's crazy amazing!!!

The #2 was $309,000! (I kiddingly said, "SLACKER!! haha!)

 

It honestly was really emotional for me to see even THOSE ladies celebrate their successes--along with the several new $1 million and $2 million Career Sales achievers.

 

I can't imagine the work they put into their businesses, and I'm so very proud of them!

Many of them have huge online businesses--but online is a lot of work and dedication!

 

It was just really wonderful to celebrate with them all!

 

I was VERY PROUD of Nadine and Deb, too!!

Nadine promoted to Silver (which bumped me to Silver Elite):

IMG_7917

And Deb promoted to Bronze Elite:

IMG_7915

 

Congratulations to you both, Nadine & Deb!!!

 

 

Ok, so now that I've shared all my successes with you, I have to keep it real.

If you don't know or can't tell already, Todd is my biggest cheerleader.

He supports me, loves me and is proud of me.

But if you know anything at all about Todd, he has a funny sense of humor--one of the things I love about him.

And he has a goofy perspective.

 

So when I was telling him the story about Wendy and my ribbons, he got a mischievous look on his face as he continued to listen intently.

 

When I was done talking (and he still had the look on his face), he reminded me of this movie. And my ribbons will never be quite the same:

 

 

"You might wanna wear those on the inside."

Leave it to Todd....

Keepin it real.

Keepin' me humble. ;)

 

 

Here are a couple more pics I thought you might find interesting that I loved.

 

late check-in...organized and quick!

Posting this early in the morning, and I'll be back.

Dear, Sweet, Talented Cheryl

 

FIRST, let me say...I'm SO VERY SORRY for my absence this week--WHILE I've actually been HOME!

 

OnStage Orlando was amazing, and I have so much to share, but I need to start simple.

Dazzling Demos at OnStage Live! Orlando: Steph, Deb Anderson, Nadine Stolt

 

(I actually cut & pasted some of this already to another post, cuz I was getting really gabby. And this first one was gonna be quick or it won't even get posted today!)

 

 

So of course, one of the highlights of OnStage was seeing other stamping friends I've met.

 

One of them was Cheryl--part of my "cruise family."

 

I'll share more ABOUT her and Lisa Marie (the other part of my "cruise family") later.

 

For NOW, I'm just going to bestow her gorgeous stamping on you.

I made sure to bring her a swap.

She brought Lisa Marie and me a package of cards.

 

When I finally looked at them, I was blown away!

One of her mottos: a card isn't finished unless it's stamped inside.

 

I knew that!!!

But did I make sure to stamp hers inside?

I'm guessing you know the answer to that.

 

Oh--and her comment when she gave us the cards?

"They're nothing special....just ones from some of my classes."

 

Whaaaat?????

 

 

Here are her cards she shared with me:

[clearly, she enjoys coloring ;) ]

(Thanks for the cards, Cheryl! They're beautiful!!)

 

 

Like I said, I have SO much more to share!

More swaps, stories, pics, the works!!

 

 

Thanks for your patience with me!

 

Happy Friday!

Have a great weekend!!

(I hope to keep posting throughout the weekend to "catch you up.")
