When I go to Convention or Stampin' Up! events I always try to find a unique gift for my downline that are attending. So this year I had my friend Suzi make some custom sterling silver cuff bracelets, and I had my other friend Leslie make some business card holders to tuck the bracelet inside.

Business Card Holders

Here are the business card holders, I bought a lot of the Beau Chateau fabric when it retired and have been making (or I should say having someone else make) matching gifts with it for the last few years.

Downline gift Convention 2015

Here is the cuff my girls got with the Stampin' Up! saying "inspire . create . share". They loved them. I know I have not taken mine off since I got it...well I had to take it off for my Make n Takes n Lunch day cause I didn't want the girls seeing it...I put it right back on once everyone had left.

Advisory Board gift Convention 2015

When we had our Advisory Board retreat last year we did a my favorite thing gift and I had asked the girls earlier what their favorite colors were and luckily Leslie kept better notes than me, so she made them matching business card holders and this is the bracelet I had Suzi make for them. They truly are "sisters by heart".  Thanks Suzi and Leslie for making such special gifts.

Have an awesome Thursday and thanks for stopping in.

I wanted to share a couple pictures from Leadership. This was our first Stampin' Up! event since we were asked to be on the board.  I have not seen the girls since our retreat in September.


Julie had a huge room so we met there to visit a little bit.  I just love these girls!

We even got to attend our first Advisory Board Luncheon with all the past Advisory Board members.

Lunch was at a nearby Italian Restaurant and it was so delicious, I had to demo right after so I ate light.

We had a sweet gift waiting for us.


It was a pretty planner.


It was nice sitting down to eat and visit a bit, we won't see each other until Convention as not all of us are going on the Hawaii trip.

I better get back to cutting paper....only 158 people to prepare for...eek!

Have an awesome Tuesday and thanks for stopping in.

AB Reunion Luncheon full

I received this invitation in the mail a while ago.  It is for the Advisory Board Reunion Luncheon while we are at Leadership, it will be the first one I will attend.   I am so excited to see my Advisory Board sisters and to see all the other girls from prior years.  Right after lunch I have to Demonstrate, so not sure how much I will eat so I don't get my belly all anxious!

What are your plans for tonight? I think we are staying home, grilling some steaks and watching a movie. Whatever you do, please be safe and have a great New Years Eve.

Have an awesome Wednesday and thanks for stopping in.

September's Mini Masterpiece - Get Your Own!

I will post more pictures later, today was a try to catch up and not fall asleep day, but I wanted to share these fun pictures.

After dinner at Shelli's we headed back in the limo in our jammies, and we were like "we have to take our all on the bed picture", that is like a tradition.

Well I propped my camera up on all sorts of things and set the timer but it was always too dark no matter what I did (lights on or off in the back - didn't matter), and then when I would run back to the bed my fat head would be in the way anyway.

So we moved to the couch and the floor, much better.

We were so tired and giddy and we were like "lets take a funny picture", Winona had pointed at the camera earlier that night so we were trying to tease on her.

This one makes me laugh. We have such a fun Advisory Board this year, but at the same time very serious about being asked to be the voice of the Demonstrator.

The next day we asked the girl at the desk to take a picture of our rings. Another tradition, yes I will admit I told you the AB was on my bucket list so I have seen pictures on blogs from past Board Members, the girls kept teasing me and asking me what picture is next? 


She took a couple pics. All fingers together, I love all our hands. Julie kept complaining about her hand, and we lovingly teased her as she is the youngest (look she has no wrinkles), so we told her to zip it...ha!


This one tugs at my heart as our fingers are all entwined, we will be sisters forever, thank you Shelli for picking us for the Advisory Board this year.

I'm off to bed, another busy day tomorrow, running errands.

Have an awesome Friday and thanks for stopping in.

Home Again...

What an amazing couple days on the beginning of our year as Advisory Board Members,  I know I have made friends for life that is for sure.  Shelli sure picked an amazing group of woman for me to serve with.

I'll share a quick picture and then I have to get to bed, gotta get up early to get to the airport. I can't wait to get home.

Here we are in our matching jammies at Shelli's house in her stamp room. Her house is beautiful and so homey but out of respect for her privacy I won't be sharing any house pics except this one. I am sure you understand.


I will share more Founder's Circle and Advisory Board pics later after I get them all uploaded and I get rested up.  I think Thursday is going to be a jammie day.

Have an awesome Wednesday and thanks for stopping in.

Hugs, Di - on location Sandy Utah
