Stampin' Up! Convention 2014 Wrap Up

As many of you know, I spent a few days in Salt Lake City last week attending the Stampin' Up! Annual Convention. This was an amazing event I hope to be able to attend again. It was called "Inspire. Create. Share.", and that's definitely what it was.

The first day we arrived we booked into our hotel and checked into the convention. This was the convention centre as seen from our room!

The second day, the convention actually started, and we lined up for the first session. Almost 4,000 women waiting to get into the same room! Scary!

It was worth it however, the speakers were amazing, and everyone got a free stamps! My upline Angela and I both got different ones.

There was another great view from the hallway of our hotel. This is Temple Square, which I will show more of later.

The Inspiration Boards were fantastic too. They had multiple boards for each of the free stamp sets we got, and many more with general inspiration. So many great ideas!

We also went on a tour of the home office in Riverton, UT, where we left messages for the staff there...

Drooled over the warehouse full of product....

And enjoyed the lovely scenery inside and out!

The lectures were fantastic as well. Bonnie Thurber is HILARIOUS, we laughed ourself silly at her class (which was also very educational).

We had dinner with some other BC girls at Blue Iguana, which is just across the street from the convention centre. Delicious, delicious Mexican food.

Every day, Shelli Gardner spoke to us about a variety of topics, and presented achievers.

Some of us won Prize Patrols, Lisa got a whole Project Life kit!

Finally on the last day, at the closing session, I won a Prize Patrol too (I don't have a photo though). And we got a photo with me, Angela and my downline, Lisa!

The day after convention ended, Lisa and I went on a tour of Temple Square, which is just stunning.

And then finally I came home to look at all my swaps, tidy up, and get back to work!

Convention was amazing. I was so inspired, had a great time, and met some awesome women. It's an experience every demonstrator should have. Maybe you'll join us next year?
