I LOVE my job!!



Michelle Miller, Nancy Ferb, Barb Faulkner


The very best part of my job is all the wonderful friends I have made during my 27 years as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator. Barb and Michelle are my highest titled team members and we had GREAT time in Las Vegas during Back Stage 2023 (formerly Leadership Conference.)



Back Stage was held at the Red Rock Spa & Casino with a block of rooms for Stampin' Up! attendees. The lobby had a magnificent chandelier!! WHO CLEANS THIS??



Back Stage 2023 Loot

We love Stampin' Up! LOGO loot!!!



LOVELY Pool complex!!




The first evening we had "Sweets & SWAPS," at this pretty pool complex!! The swaps were TOP quality by TOP demonstrators!



Stampin' Up! always has recognition. Michelle and I were recognized for increased sales and Barb was recognized for team advancement!! YEA!


There was a wonderful collection of business training. This event is ALL business focused and no stamping.  Sam Hind of Auxano spoke to us on the topic of Social Media. Excellent!



The last evening, Stampin' Up! surprised us with a trip to Cirque du Soleil for the Beatles LOVE performance at the Mirage! WOW! WOW! It was out-of-this-world!! Our shirts were a HINT for this FABULOUS surprise!

My head & heart are FULL!!

Thank you, Stampin' Up!!
