I didn't plan well my excursions well. Instead of sleeping in and relaxing, I've been on the go!! Today we left bright and early and drove on buses to Kanab, Utah, where the Stampin' Up! Manufacturing Facility is. We got the grand tour and learned all the ins and outs of making rubber stamps! And I didn't realize it, but some of the ink pads are also produced in Kanab! I even got to try filling a bottle of Garden Green ink and put the lip, cap, and label on! We got several gifts while we were there, including an awesome new stamp set that I can't show you yet.
Usually, after the tour, Founder's Circle Achievers go to a local park for lunch. I was looking forward to the infamous park because instead of woodchips or sand on the playground, they use scraps of rubber that are recycled and chopped up from Stampin' Up! Well, we didn't get to go to the park, but I did get special permission to climb inside a box of scraps in the room where it's chopped and shredded! It was soft and cushy and would be great on a playground!
After a cookout with the employees, we were back on the bus and off to our surprise special event -- which turned out to be a raft float down a 15 mile stretch of the Colorado River in Glen Canyon...in Arizona!
