Stampin’ Up! and South Hill Designs on Sunday! The USA Round Up!
Oh my goodness, what a whirlwind adventure I had in America!!!
I only arrived back in the UK on Monday just gone, but as I type this on Saturday night, I am in no way over the jet lag yet. I’m told that it will take a day for each hour time difference, well, I have another 3 or 4 to go yet….
But I had the most incredible time. I met so many wonderful people who took the time to come and say hello to me. And it was a fantastic opportunity for me to say thank you to all those who have liked, loved, supported and been inspiration to me.
I didn’t get to meet everyone I wanted to, I spent a lot of my time wandering around trying to see as many familiar faces as possible. Please know, I’m desperately sad I didn’t get to say hello to everyone, and those that I did meet will I hope share their hugs virtually with you!
I did eventually master the art of the ‘selfie’ photo, although I was a bit hopeless at first with remembering to take pictures. I was too busy squishy hugging people!!!
My video is considerably longer than my usual SH&SU on Sunday ones, but I am covering 2 conventions! The first half is South Hill Designs the round up, and then the second half is the Stampin’ Up! round up!
I’ve made it longer than normal, not just because I wanted to showcase everything I received from both, but because I got a little over excited by the fact that South Hills is opening in Mexico, Quebec and Dominican Republic in about 10 days time, and they also released an incredible New Artist incentive scheme. Then I had oodles of cards and swaps and gifts to share! I do hope you make it all the way through the video!
I’ve attached below the few photos that I did manage to get, you can see I got progressively more saggy-bagged-around-the-eyes as the week wore on. You lot in America worked me hard!!!!
Can’t wait til next year, but also hoping that some people may consider flying out to Brussels for European Convention in October….
