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.
lots of snacks, too!
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***
New friends: Tiffany Bauer, Diana Gibbs, Me, Joanna Banta, Jan House
Look at the backdrop of this beautiful park!
I had to borrow so closed toed shoes from Diana so here’s my feet in the BOUNCY rubber with and with out shoes!
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!!!
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?????
wait, you may not be tired but I sure am!
