Today’s General Session began with recognition of the over 600 in attendance of the over 4,000 demonstrators who were recognized for their accomplishments is Sales, Recruiting and Leadership. Each achiever got the opportunity to walk the stage and introduce themselves. We had a member of our tree walk the stage this year for Recruiting – YAY Karen!
We were treated to more stamping demonstrations and project ideas on the Main Stage and between these moments of wonder we recognized Career Sales Milestone awards starting at $100,000 all the way up to $1,800,000; 5, 10, 15, 20 and 25 years Anniversaries; and the Top 100 Global Demonstrators. (I will mark my 10 year Anniversary in 2 years, but have a long way to go before I reach any of those other milestones! But I will never say NEVER.)
Our last presentation of the day was a stamping demonstration by mother and daughter duo, Shelli Gardner and Sara Douglass. These two ladies are amazing on their own, but when they are on the stage together it’s magical. They are also hilarious when they are on the stage together and at times I was laughing so hard I cried. They each showed us three projects they both made using the same product suite from the Occasions Catalog. Their banter during the presentation was unscripted and would have made an excellent comedy sketch.
Just before saying goodbye until next time, we were treated to an ALL ATTENDEE GIVE AWAY which was another fabulous stamp set that will be available in the Occasions Catalog, a highlights video of the week’s activities and announcements of the next OnStage Local venues for April 2018. I will share all of this with you just as soon as permissible.
Tomorrow I will fly home to be reunited with my adoring husband and our five fur babies. I hear from a very reliable source that they have all missed me very much. My husband sent me a few photos this evening to remind me of what I have waiting for me when I get home. My dogs were so distraught over my absence he ended up pushing the couch over next to his recliner so our “little” baby Ella could lay her head in his lap (second photo). The things we do for our fur babies! I have to admit I miss them all terribly as well and can’t wait to get home.
(L to R: Ella, Abby, Rosie.)
(Ella is laying where I usually sit. She sits next to me and will lean on me and rests her head in my lap. She has been whining since I left on Thursday.)
Love it Live it Share it – the theme for #OnStage2017. I look forward to continuing to share my love of Stampin’ Up! with you.
Thank you for stopping by. Until next time, stamp on my friends!
