Stampin' Up! Convention 2013: Last Day & Class Presentation

Today was the last day of Convention! I can't believe it's over! Convention was one day shorter this year and I don't know how they did it, but they fit three days into two!

General Session today included recognition for career sales milestones (Mom and I both walked for $200K career sales), and Anniversary marches. There were also some video highlights of demonstrators "Making a Difference" -- specifically the service project we participated in while in Fiji and also the one at Convention (to put together 2,000 birthday kits for patients at the local children's hospital.

Between General Sessions, we had three breakout classes. I presented with three other demonstrators at the Building a Thriving Business class. The topic that I spoke about was my Stamp of the Month Club. I was so excited to share my experience with other demonstrators. Did you see it? Leave me a comment if you heard my class!
Building a Thriving Business Presenters: Susie Wood, Alisa Tinsler, Donna Griffith, Daleen Pinder, me!

Bonnie Thurber was so very entertaining, as always, during her presentation at the last General Session. Next up was inspiring talk by Stampin' Up! President Rich Jutkins. I always love hearing him speak. His analogies are spot in and this points always come across very clearly! Of course, General Session wouldn't be complete without Prize Patrol and one more all-attendee giveaway!

Just when I was beginning to wonder if I would ever win, my wristband color (Melon Mambo) was called. As it turns out...EVERYONE won a Prize Patrol. Stampin' Up! gave away 25 different Prize Patrols (one for each year they are celebrating! The very last one hit the jackpot!! They gave each person with the last color wristband EVERY single stamp set in the Holiday Catalog!! Oh my goodness! Can you imagine!?! That's over 30 stamp sets!!!
