Mass Swap Production Day!!

Hello there! Happy Tuesday to you! Hope you are doing well today! Ok, so if I haven't mentioned it yet...I AM GOING TO THE STAMPIN UP! CONVENTION!!!!!! WOOOOHOOOOO!!! I am so stinkin' excited that I feel like I could explode into a jillion little tiny pieces!! I officially leave in 28 days!!! (also known as 28 more sleeps!)!! I am going with my wonderful down line Jo (Hiya Jo!!!). She is so much fun and I cannot wait to spend the whole week with her! She is my BFF's mom! I so wish we were taking her (my BFF) with us too! :( (Hiya Kelley!!!) I also wish I was taking my mom with! The four of us would have such a blast. We plan to keep them updated on our antics while away though! This will be my first time attending the convention and it is in Utah. I have never been to Utah and am really excited about seeing new things. I am also super excited about meeting new people! The folks in the stamping community are such warm, nice, wonderful people and I love meeting new faces! Ok, so anyone that knows me knows that I tend to be a bit of an overachiever sometimes. So, on that happy note I decided that I was going to have to make a few extra swaps to take with me!! 480 to be exact!! Big Grin!! NO problem, right?! LOL Well, this past weekend my DL and I and a few other very sweet and generous ladies got together to mass produce some swaps (between the two of us we think we need to take close to 900!) {{And the insanity sets in!!}} We had a great couple of days and got so much accomplished! Here are a couple of pictures from our weekend:

That is me in the back on the left and my SIL in front of me (in blue) and my adorable dl across from me and my BFF's MIL on the end). Kelley took the pictures so was not in them. (I am kicking myself for not getting a shot of her!!)

Here we are with stuff spread out everywhere! We made a giant mess, but boy was it fun!

Here is a little roommate gift I made for Jo. She and I will be rooming together in Utah! It is a notebook to take notes of all the fun things we will learn during convention! I made a pocket to go on the inside cover to hold other notes and lists etc. I used the new Garden Gala DSP from the upcoming new SU! catalog. This paper is GORGEOUS!! They will be releasing a ton of new beautiful DSP in the catalog!!

This is the bag tag I made for her! When we check in one of the goodies we get is a new bag (bouncing up and down!!!) with some new stamps in it! (more bouncing!!). Well when your bag looks just like the other 4000 demo bags all running around convention you need something to make yours stand out and that is the purpose of this! It matches her notebook! :)

Ok, I have tons to do today so I am off! Have a wonderful day! I will be back soonest!
