So, to taunt you, a few details first. First, the January 9th, 10th and 11th cards! They are the make & takes I made while I was here with the free stamp set I got! WOW. I will be demo'ing some of these in my class next Saturday - the 19th - as well as sharing the million other exciting things I saw. Contact me by leaving a comment if you want to join us.
I apologize in advance for the lack of photoshop - I'M MOBILE PEOPLE - I'M DOING THE BEST I CAN. :)
The white stripes and dots are from the rub ons. I love these and there was a demonstration booth where they put them on all sorts of things! I will elaborate later.
Okay - so January 9th contains a secret - this is made from a CIRCLE, not a square! A giant circle, made with an unexpected accessory! It's all I can say because I'm afraid you're going to stop reading soon and you won't get my updates. Oh my gosh they are good!!
January 10th was the card we made for the Ronald McDonald House. It's so sweet and simple, and if you don't love that arrow punch, well, you're probably not reading a stamping blog.
This picture is terrible but the dimension from this tag on the project is really fun. We used the tag to do all sorts of things behind the scenes! and I love the layering possibilities this set + the punches brings.
Okay - saving the best for last. Check out this striped ribbon!! it's so danged cute. The little asterisk on the heart plus the line of dots is from the rub on set they gave us. THEY GAVE US SO MUCH STUFF!!
Anyway, this is very simple, very cute with a great simple color scheme. We will be making this at camp.
OKAY ARE YOU READY FOR THE UPDATES?????
For demos -
- WE ARE GOING TO BE ABLE TO TAKE CREDIT CARD PAYMENTS - NO FEE NOTHING - THROUGH OEX OMG OMG.... No date for this yet
RETITLEMENT NO LONGER DEPENDS ON DOWNLINE LEADERSHIP - YOUR TITLE DEPENDS ONLY ON YOUR ROLLING 12 MONTH SALES AND YOUR FIRST LEVEL ACTIVE DOWNLINE!!
THERE IS GOING TO BE A NEW DEMONSTRATOR BULK BUYING PROGRAM - COOL STUFF BUNDLED AT A LOWER COST - WE GOT TO PURCHASE SOME AT LEADERSHIP!! WOW. FULLY COMMISSIONALBE SALES!!
THE CATALOGS WILL BE REVEALED AGAIN AT CONVENTION AND LEADERSHIP FOR THE FIRST TIME - THE EXCITEMENT AND SUSPENSE ARE BAAAACK AT CONVENTION! YAY!!
And they gave us the occasions catalog today, and I can honestly say, it's the best mini-cat ever, and if you don't love every item in it with your whole heart, I will totally eat something gross like margarine or artificial sweetener! :)
I will stop yelling for a sec to recreate a Starbucks experience from this morning. Jenn - are you listening?
I'm behind a guy in line. He's placing an order. It's taking an incredibly long time, and I'm late, so I start listening. Turns out he's taking an order via Nextel. Here's the transcript:
"beep beep - hey - what do you want? Tea? Okay"
(to cashier) - "I need a tea".
Barista - "we have a lot of tea - what kind?"
"Beep beep - what kind of tea? (listening) Okay - I need a tall cold tea"
"Beep beep - okay, here's the kind of tea they have (insert long list of tazo teas, pronounced with a twang, super slow) okay, okay - I'll have a tall CALM tea)"
Barista - "you want honey with that?"
me - LOUDSCREAMINGINSIDEMYHEADOMGREALLYAREYOUDOINGTHISLIVEVIANEXTELORAMIHAVINGANIGHTMARE???"
"Yes - two honeys please".
Okay - I'm assuming that the recipient of the calm tea (who in the heck drinks calming tea at 7 AM on a Friday??? seriously????) is a very difficult woman with a nextel. However, in mid "honey" in walks the other nextel - a man, a coworker, who also wants a breakfast sandwich!!!
370000 minutes later I get to order my drink. Wow.
More stories but I'm pooped, confused about the time zone, etc.
Lots of stories. And to my sweet reader in Arkansas - thank you so much. You touched me. Praying for your family who are brave enough to be in harm's way on our behalf.
God Bless America.
