It’s Wednesday and I promised you an update on the plumbing saga so here goes. The plumber showed up Monday, but still couldn’t figure out which line was the problem so he called in reinforcements. Within a couple hours, I had five plumbers at my house working. It looked like a plumbers convention in front of my house. It took about seven hours, but they figured out which line was the problem, how far back they had to go to cut it, and then how … [Read more...] about Stampin Up Sent Me A Diamond
Stampin Up Event
Eeek! I’m so excited. Tomorrow I head to Portland for Stampin Up’s OnStage Convention this week. So often, when these trips come up, we fly in and out and spend as little as time as possible. Of course, having the Convention in the same City for many years meant that wasn’t a big deal. This time, Poli and I decided to add a couple days on to the trip to have a chance to do a little sightseeing. We’re going to try to cram in as many things as … [Read more...] about OnStage, Here We Come!
Stays in Vegas! Actually, not this time. I've been dying to share the Recap from Onstage a couple weeks ago, but we usually have a "no spoilers policy" in place for a couple days after the event. And then I'm usually playing catch-up after being gone for a few days. This time, OnStage came right on the heels of a work conference so I was gone for five days, which means quite a bit more catch-up around the house. The OnStage location that we … [Read more...] about What happens in Vegas…
Last month, I traveled to Salt Lake City for Stampin’ Up’s OnStage Event. OnStage is the new name for our Demonstrator Convention. These events are always so much fun. This time, it was just Lyndi and I going. Unfortunately, Margo had a pup emergency at home and had to cancel at the last minute. We really missed having her along.We usually fly in the day before so we have a chance to get settled before all the craziness starts. And this gives us … [Read more...] about OnStage Recap
Last Friday, the four of us hit the road for Phoenix. It's a long story, but we ended up having to take the Camaro. :) Yep, we fit the four of us and our luggage in the Camaro. Amazing! Probably not the best decision to take a car that gets only 12 miles to the gallon. But, our options were limited. At least it gave us a chance to stop at gas stations and stretch our legs (have you seen how small the backseat is in a Camaro?). At one … [Read more...] about Roadtrip Recap
First let me apologize for the length of the post, but there was so much good stuff going on at OnStage. Every year when we go to Stampin Up's Annual Convention, now called OnStage, we have some traditions that we continue to do. We like to fly in the day before to allow time for some shopping and to do a Shoebox Swap. We eat at mostly the same restaurants every year: Kneaders, Toasters, Cafe Molise, Naked Fish, Red Rock, and Red Iguana. … [Read more...] about OnStage Recap
