Life's Short...Live it with Zest! And I certainly did just that this weekend. I left the house at 8:30 am with two of my Stamping Bee Team mates on a 8 hour road trip to Atlanta for the Stampin' Up! OnStage Local event. With just a short stop for lunch, we made it to Atlanta at 4:30. That was just enough time to change clothes and grab a quick drink in the bar before the Center Stage Leadership event! Not only did we have a scrumptious meal with more Stampin' friends, but everyone at Center Stage got a preview of the new catalog before everyone else!
The next morning was early as Julia's alarm went off at 5:30 am! But we had to get ready and check out of the room before heading back to the ballroom at the Cobb Galleria. I was part of Prize Patrol and had so much fun giving out prizes to people who were waiting in line or sitting at tables ready for the event to start. It's amazing what a smile a bolt of ribbon or embellishments can muster!
One of the things I love about any Stampin' Up! event is the opportunity to swap with fellow demonstrators. I participated in two organized swaps this time. Both swaps were specific to only using products which are carrying over into the new catalog, like the Lemon Zest stamp set and coordinating punch. I love how a seemingly simple stamp set like Lemon Zest can have so many different variations!
OnStage was awesome! and I can't wait to place my new catalog preorder! I've got my wish list almost ready. Ok, who am I kidding? You know I want it ALL!
