Founder’s Circle Day 2

I’m in heaven – Thank you, LORD, that you granted me this opportunity!

We started this beautiful day off at by driving to Kanab. We hopped on two busses and had a fabulous 2 hour bus ride to see the Stampin’ Up! rubber stamp manufacturing facility. Shelli asked several questions about what we LOVED and what we would Change.

The employees all meet us out side and lined the walk ways to cheer as we got off the bus. There are about 70 amazing people that work hard and with so much love. They were simply wonderful. 

All I can say is AMAZING! It was thrilling to see how each step that goes into creating the stamp set. We could not take pictures but I got to “cut out” one of the Just Believe Stamp sets!

Upstairs in the facility is a full 3 bedroom apartment for the Staff to stay when they come to Kanab for training. And Shelli is there almost once a month, sometimes even with her grand kids! We got to hear all about why Kanab was so special to Shelli.

(Hey, Jenny, move girl…your in all my pictures!!! *wink* I’m so glad you are. It’s been a highlight of my trip to get to know you.)

After the tour they took us to the Park that Stampin’ Up! built. We had a great lunch and every meal is topped of with an amazing desert! Our lunch came in these cute black insulated purses, so cute! ***I need to get a picture from Joanna Banta to put HERE***

We played Bingo for product the whole way back and then played Plinko for Prizes back at the Hotel. YES, I am a little excited about my prizes!DSC_0366

DSC_0348DSC_0375 The next few hours was spent relaxing with a cookie and some friends doing Make N Takes with that cute new set I teased you with yesterday. I still can’t show you the set but here’s the giant peanut butter cookie (YUM – my favorite) and one of the cards I made with my new set and matching punch!!! DSC_0377DSC_0354

We ended the night with another cupcake…….this one was on my bed and it was filled with a 1x1 simply adorned charm and necklace, created by Shelli and her girls! It’s beautiful, can’t wait for you to see it….maybe in my pictures tomorrow?????

Girl, I'm so going to be there next year! You better help me! LOL. I just finished two workshops this weekend that I really loved doing. I had a great time with my hostesses and their friends. I had a great day at church and I had a special treat - dinner with Michelle Carnes. She said she was so proud of me when I showed the hostess at the restaurant my Simply Adorned charm and then pulled out a mini catalog and told her to email me and I'd have a class set up for her and her friends to make the necklace. Woo Hoo!

I love the pictures you took and your smile is amazing! I can feel your joy and so want to be a part of the fun next time. (I don't know if I'll want to do 135 swaps though. UGH!)

Enjoy and can't wait to hear more.
