This weekend I attended OnStage Local in Hartford Connecticut. On Stage Local is a mini convention that Stampin’ Up! has for all the Demonstrators around the world. I went with one of my Downline, Karen and met Buffy (everyone knows Buffy) there.
The ride down was a little traumatic for me. It snowed the entire time and we were surrounded by tractor trailers going way too fast! It was worth every minute of that trip though. I had an awesome time and I received a copy of the new 2018/2019 Annual Catalog. I am not allowed to talk about the catalog until 3:00 PM today but I can say you are going to love it! At that time Stampin’ Up will release the Retirement List and we can share all the news we heard.
There are around 12 OnStage Locals all over the world on the same day. Stampin’ Up! sends staff to each of them. We were lucky to have Spencer at Hartford. He is one of my favorite. The day consisted of some announcements, some stamping, some stamping demonstrations by local Demonstrators, some stamping by Sara and Shelli, an awesome lunch, some more stamping, Prize Patrols throughout the day (where we get free merchandise), more announcements, cupcakes and lots of fun. Only Demonstrators can attend OnStage. The next one is in November in Orlando so if you are interested click on the Join Now button to the right of my blog.
Check back this afternoon for an update with exciting news and the Retirement List!
