Sweet Home Indiana

Where are you from?


I hear that exact question every time I attend Convention.
It cracks me up!
One gentleman guessed I was from TX.
(Dean said it was because of my big hair.  HA!)
It's so fun to see their reaction when I say Indiana... and then add
SOUTHERN Indiana.  he he he.

The Stampin' Up! Convention theme this year was
GROW
(thus me on the "grow" stage pictured above)
and the idea behind that theme was to encourage
demonstrators to GROW, not just in their demonstratorships
but also in life generally.
I LOVE that!

I want to GROW as a SU! demonstrator,
as a wife and mother,
as a CBS leader,
as a child of God,
as a friend.
How do you want to grow?

I have a prayer for you...
that you might GROW in creativity,
in inspiration and encouragement,
and in the way of the Lord, Jesus Christ,
as you visit Always Stampin'.
I'm blessed that YOU are reading my blog.
May you be blessed to read it.


SO BLESSED to have had the most amazing roomies
for the 2011 SU! Convention...
the fun (and a bit entertaining) Karin Tunnell
along with the sweet and talented Diane Squires!
Just look at the precious gifts
they gave me for being their roomie...




One of the things I absolutely LOVE about paper crafting
is coordinating my packaging with my gift.
Just look at how Diane did just that
with her Lucky Limeade and Basic Black bag.
Perfect!



And check out the bling Karin added to her package!
I love how it coordinates with the shiney wrappers
of the chocolate bars!
(Karin got me quite hooked
on the new Dove chocolates as well as the
new chocolate bottom granola bars. YUM!)

As you can see, my 2011 convention experience
was blessed for many reasons.
I'm excited to share more with you but
I will save it for another post.
Know what would make my blessings even greater?
If you joined me at convention
NEXT YEAR!
Let me share my SU! story with you...
host a Stampin' Up! party and be blessed!
