Stampin' Up! Convention 2008 SLC

I am finally getting back to normal life now that our Convention is over! Holy cow! I was so tired after Covention this year that I felt I should hibernate for a few months and get some sleep. The excitement and anticipation of Convention, new products, announcements and presentations makes it so I can hardly sleep at all!!!

I LOVED this year's Convention more than any other one ( I probably say that every year- but I mean it this year). What a great fun time we had celebrating all of our amazing, fabulous demonstrators all over the world. I love our demos! They are the greatest people in the world.

I have tried over and over to explain to my kids what I do for a living. How do you explain geting up on stage and stamping in front of 6000 women and 3 men :) Well, the kids got to come down to the Salt Palace and see me present on the maainstage. It was awesome. There they were on the front row, my little chickens and Teresa!! Everytime I saw them on the big camera screen I almost got a little teary. SOOOOOO cute. Of course I threatened to take away everything they own if they ran around all over the place :) As any good parent would. On the way home in the car Coltin asked his mom "Is Daddy famous mom?" HA HA HA HA HA - "Only one week a year sweetie!"- she said. It is good to shrink that big head of mine!

So what was your favorite part of Convention??? I am dying to know all the things that you just LOVED?

My favorite part? That deserves at least a top ten list...but if I have to narrow it down I would say check-in day is my favorite because it's like being reunited with a few thousand of my favorite people!! And I also deeply love awards night (dressing up, seeing amazing accomplishments, staying up late). I also really love setting my alarm for 5:15am. :)

Reading your convention thoughts reminded me of your *AWESOME* scrapbooks!! I can't wait to check out the pics online and recreate that with my customers. They're going to think I'm a rock star, when really, it's *YOU*!! You're awesome. You did a great job and your presentation was one of my faves. Oh, and I tried to keep Brenda under wraps this year (if you know what I mean *wink*). Thanks for all you and all the SU! gurus do to make convention so memorable.

I would have to say that sitting by you at your class was my favorite. HA HA! And of course getting my picture taken with you. And your scrapbook presentation on the mainstage! I think you are famous in my book! Check out this post there I compare our last 3 convention pictures together: http://rydenkim.blogspot.com/2008/08/oh-jaron.html

Well, I don't know about that. I mean, people refer to you on a first-name only basis. They ask to have pictures taken with you. Your pictures are all over the Internet. People want to be you when they grow up. They hope that their city will be added to the schedule when you tour.

I would say you're pretty famous...
