Hello and welcome to my special blog post sharing my OnStage attendance in Portland, Oregon! When I found out in April that one of the OnStage locations would be in Portland, I just knew that is where I was going! My mother lives in Portland, so planning a trip to visit her was a must, and we were able to take a short trip to visit my younger son, Cody, in Hawaii before he leaves early next year. So, first and foremost, I will share my day of stamping, new products, and making new friends, and then I will also share a few pictures from Hawaii!!
Can you believe that there were 12 of us representing Team Stamp It in Portland?? Out of these 11 lovely ladies, I only knew one from last November in Orlando, but I had an absolutely wonderful time getting to know every single one of them! Some of us where able to get together for dinner the night before (Friday), we all were able to meet up on Saturday so that we could get tables together, and then all went out to dinner afterwards. While getting the new Mini Catalog (f/k/a Occasions Catalog) and Sale-A-Bration catalog was definitely a highlight, making new friends at a Stampin’ Up! event far from home made the event so much more rewarding!
Here are some display boards featuring products from the Mini and Sale-A-Bration catalogs, giving you a sneak peek before the catalogs are available to customers and goes live on January 3, 2020:
Here are the “make and takes” from OnStage and stamp sets I came home with!
While I can’t share with you the inside of the catalog, I can say that there are so many awesome new products! My “wish list” is entirely too long, but I am so excited and can’t wait to share what I create with you!
My quick trip to Hawaii!!
When I suggested to my mom that we make a quick trip to Hawaii, she was so for it! Neither one of us have been to Hawaii, so this was the perfect opportunity to go and visit my son Cody. No, four days was NOT long enough (lol) and I could definitely keep going back to find new experiences. We made the most of the trip, attended our first Luau, did a zip line tour, toured Pearls Harbor (the USS Arizona memorial, USS Bowfin (a submarine), and the USS Missouri), drove to different beaches, watched the sunrise on the east side of the island, watched the sunset on the west side of the island (right outside our hotel), experienced local culture and food, and toured the different bases on Oahu. We had the absolute best time, which I know my mother needed, and I dubbed us “Three Peas in a Pod” because we just laughed the whole time!
Thank you for stopping by today for my special blog post! If you have any questions or concerns about Stampin’ Up!, please let me know! Stay tuned for my next post, which will be the Team Stamp It Christmas Theme Blog Hop!
