Convention

Wow! I am back from convention in Denver and I'm finally awake enough to reflect. My flight landed in NYC this morning at 6:30 this morning, so I spent most of today sleeping. Sorry I didn't post from Denver, but my schedule was packed tight and I was exhausted by the time we got back to our room.

The Denver convention center has the cutest giant blue bear peering into the building. I think this is the coolest public art I've ever seen. Inside the convention center, I was able to purchase a mini blue bear for only $9. I can't wait to find a spot to prop him up.

I was lucky enough to spend the week with my stamping demonstrator friends from all over the country. It was wonderful spending time with everyone in "real life" and we quickly filled all of our free evenings with planned get-togethers.

We took this group shot one morning after breakfast. Not everyone is in the picture, but it's pretty close.

I'll share my favorite moments from the official parts of convention in later posts. I just wanted to stop in and share how much fun I had with my friends. I am so blessed to have found them and to have them in my life. Would you believe that they threw me a surprise baby shower during our shoebox swap? I was totally surprised and overwhelmed by their thoughtfulness.

One last picture before I leave tonight. When we were looking at the display boards, I spotted a card I made back in December. I was trying to point to the card, but I ended up pointing to the divider instead. Anyway, here's my blog post for this card.

More tomorrow. I have pictures to share from the shoebox swap and our SSUS group dinner.
