Even though the Stampin' Up! Convention ended on Saturday afternoon, it was still a fun trip home yesterday (except for my suitcase being 6 lbs over the weight limit and having to put my new SU catalog binder, a stamp set and shoes in my carryon and still check a second bag…my laptop bag (from last year's convention!)…to get the weight down….and except for having to rush through the Denver airport even in the same concourse across a couple of "people-movers" to get to my next gate with only a thirty minute layover…while carrying the heavy carryon bag and purse!…and no time for lunch) …because I still was meeting Stampin' Up! Demonstrators at the airport in Salt Lake and on the plane and looking at swaps the demo had sitting next to me. Part of the fun of Convention is that Stampin' Up! Demonstrators are everywhere so it is easy to start chatting right away. In fact, at the gate in Salt Lake City, a lady sat down next to me and I didn't see any signs of SU on her so assumed she was NOT a demo. Then another demo came along and sat down and started talking about going through security with both of us, so I assumed she knew this lady next to me…but no, she could see MY SU paraphenalia and assumed this lady was with ME! Finally, I realized this lady next to me was NOT with Stampin' Up! and didn't know what we were talking about! We told her she should be one of us! Guess we should have tried harder to recruit her!
Slowly reality settled in that the wonderful Stampin' Up! Convention and all its fun and all its perks had come to a close and I was returning to normal life again. But, Stampin' Up! already had a highlight video which captures lots of the moments and experiences of Convention, almost up to the last minute (no video of Spencer Willis singing "The Candy Man" with his children right after Carrie Cudney's candy-themed demonstration!). Just to hear the music brings it all back!
