What an amazing weekend I had! I attended a special Stamp-n-Storage event Friday afternoon with my friends and team members, Nancy Forsberg & Kayla Cory, and then I took part in (presented at!) a huge demonstrator event on Sunday afternoon. So I thought I’d share a few photos.
These photos are from Friday. Here is our excitement as we are arriving in Hutchinson, MN.
Nancy, Kayla and I attended Stamp-n-Storage’s Retail Store Grand Opening & Warehouse Sale. And oh my goodness! It was so fun to experience and share in that special day. The deals were wonderful of course, so I bought a couple more pieces than I needed. But it was exciting to watch the ribbon cutting ceremony, to hear about how fast this business has grown for Brett & Mary Haugen (the owners), and to see the beautiful new location for their company that now includes retail space. Plus I saw lots of people I knew there!
If you ever get a chance to go, here is what will great you when you walk into their new place. This sort of stuff makes us crafters drool, right? Hahaha!

And click here to see my craft room remodel video that I recorded 2-1/2 years ago when these great storage solutions came into my life.
On Sunday I took part in the 2018 Creative Connections event, an annual event hosted by a demonstrator leader group in our area that I’m a part of called Stamp Share For Leaders. We put this event on for our team members. And it’s an amazingly huge and successful event, because there are many of us all pitching in in some way. I can’t possibly name all the fabulous demonstrators that helped to pull this together. But they are wonderful, amazing people.
Terri Gaines, Georgia Giguere and Susan Campfield are the leads for this event, and they always do such a fantastic job. I was a presenter along with Patsy Waggoner, Terri Gaines, Karen Titus, Susan Campfield, Georgia Giguere, Sandy Carlson, and our special guest, Brian Pilling from Stampin’ Up!’s home office!
Here are a few photos from that event.
Notice that Brian Pilling is incognito below. These other fabulous gals with me are teammates: Cheryl Lee, Vicki Spicer, Nancy Forsberg, Kayla Cory, Sandy Stellenburg, and Ashley Kuphal.
Here is another group photo of me with my sister demos/teammates.
I love sharing and teaching, so I had a great time presenting the beautiful Frosted Floral Suite of products. I had so much fun though, that I lost track of time and went over by quite a few minutes. But I’m guessing that doesn’t surprise many of you. I love to share!
This photo shows Brian Pilling up on stage, the almost 300 attendees, and the beautiful room where we hold this event.
Brian was a delight! It was fun getting to know him a little more. And we loved all that he shared with us.
Guess what!? I now have LOTS of Frosted Floral ideas to share with you in upcoming blog posts. Hope you are up for that.
