Convention Highlights and another Holiday Mini Sneak Peek

Check out this video of Convention Highlights!!  This was my first Convention and it was soooooo AMAZING!!!!
I travelled and shared my room with Jenn Picard.  We are both Artisan Award Winners, so it was really cool to share all the big events with each other.  We are actually sidelines, so we've known each other for a few years, but this week in Salt Lake really brought us together as friends.  Jenn knows a lot of demonstrators (especially the blog Rock Stars!) and it was fabulous to meet all these people through her.  I was completely overwhelmed and excited by the whole week.  And to see my projects on display was really humbling and exciting.  I've also seen a few of my projects posted on other's blogs and I'm really touched by the recognition. I will post up more photos later in the week.
Now here's a card that I made with a new sneak peek set given to us at Convention. One of the fabulous perks of Convention is that not only do we get to see products that haven't been released yet, but we also get samples!!! This set is called Warmest Wishes and it's a hostess set in the upcoming Holiday Mini Catty.
The Fun Stuff:
1. Paper - Whisper White, Island Indigo, Pink Pirouette, Watercolour Paper
2. Stamps - Warmest Wishes, Easy Events
3.  Ink - Pretty In Pink, Island Indigo, Black Staz On
4.  Accessories - Petite Pennants Builder Punch, Stampin Dimensionals, Aquapainter, Stampin' Write Markers

Congrats on winning the Artisan Award. It's not an easy task. I was one of the top finalist two years ago and it was hard work just getting into the top 30. You go girl! Thanks for the fun video of convention! I didn't get to go this year, but it's on the To-Do for next year! God Bless and congrats again, Tana Conley

Hey Sandra, Congrats on winning the Artisan. I entered again after being on the finalist list last year. I was on the finalist list this year and was thrilled to be amoung the top 30 again. Someday I might get the thrill of winning. I personally know the hard work and determination of entering and Hope your year is filled with excitement and Challenges. I will be watching your blog and hope to learn enough to actually win next year.
Love your stuff!

What a thrill it was for me to meet you and Jenn at Convention. I was the stalker that asked to have my picture taken with you girls because I just think you girls are so talented. Oh wait....there were probably LOTS of people that wanted their pictures with you Thanks for humoring me. Congratulations on Artisan Award winner. And how fun that it was your first Convention too.
I hope to see you again next year, until then, I will continue to stalk your blog!
