Dames January Meeting

Crafters -
Well, thanks again to my new friend and honorary Dame Gwen, I have returned from Leadership and am beginning to get caught up on posting. Classes are taking a LOT more time this go-round, so I haven't been able to craft and post as much as I would like...
Here are the items we made at on January meeting. The last four (at the end) is something they showed us at Leadership. I've revised it slightly for our Dames and thanks to my FABULOUS downline and friend, Dame Stephanie, for coming through with the Pacific Point paper - the ONLY paper I didn't have on hand!  :)

**UPDATE: February 5th, 2011 - I forgot to show my swap card. It uses the new tulips embossing folder, punches, die-cuts, the only thing stamped was the "Congratulations" - which was a gift from SU! during Leadership. Aren't they just the BEST! Hope you enjoy the card!

And the project that we ALL were able to complete (some Dames used different punches):

Dames Meeting in OCTOBER!

Crafters - My fabulous husband just downloaded the pictures for me from our OCTOBER 2010 meeting. Here are the cards we made. I'll post the January meeting cards next.

Newest Dame to my Downline!

Please join me in welcoming Alesa to my downline. Alesa is the one who will be taking advantage of the FREE Starter Kit that Stampin'Up! offered to all Leadership attendees.

Alesa will also be joining us for our Dames Downline meeting on Saturday - those Dames attending on Saturday will get to meet her then!
If anyone else is interested in signing up as a demonstrator, don't forget that Sale-a-Bration begins next week - and that is a FABULOUS time to become a demonstrator!
Welcome Alesa to Dawn's Dames!

Opportunity Night - WEDNESDAY

Crafters - You all know what a GREAT company Stampin'Up is. And you know that Sale-a-Bration is a WONDERFUL time to sign up to become a demonstrator...
Well, to get a head start of this, Stampin’Up! is offering to each demonstrator who attended Leadership – that would be me and 999 of my closest friends…. A FREE STARTER KIT!!!!! I am able to GIVE a free starter kit to a new demonstrator who signs up and becomes part of my downline. You can become a demonstrator at no cost to you BUT this has to be postmarked to SU! Headquarters by Friday, January 21st. You can attend exclusive SU! events (Regionals, Convention, Leadership {Leadership is upon promotion to certain titles}).
SO, if you are interested in becoming a Stampin’Up! demonstrator, please contact me NOW. I’m going to have an Opportunity Night at my home on Wednesday, January 19th from 7p-8p. We can make a card and talk about you joining SU! We will be discussing how the ONE person will be chosen on Wednesday evening. (**NOTE: If…

Have you been thinking about becoming a Demonstrator?

Stampin'Up! Leadership has now officially ended. I have pictures, and will post more when I arrive back home tomorrow. :)

The Make-and-Takes are SO cool - but I was too busy visiting and talking and didn't get them all done. THOSE will have to be finished at home. I'll post those as soon as homework is finished on Sunday evening (smile).

BUT in the meantime, SU! has a GREAT idea for what we call "recruiting" - if you think you may wish to become a demonstrator, NOW is the time to REALLY think about it - call me so we can discuss this...

Have a wonderful day and thanks so much for reading my blog. I just love the goodies we received. Thank you Stampin'Up! and thank you to my friends, customers, and family for supporting me in this - continue to "Share What You Love!"

Leadership News, changes, and a Special Offer from me (on January 26, 27 and 28 only!)

Crafters -

This will be a longer post. First things first. Don't you just LOVE the bag (purse) that SU! has for us this year? LOVE - LOVE - LOVE it!  :)

And here's what is INSIDE the bag - don't you just LOVE it?  :)   I do...

This picture didn't turn out as well, but it is one of those purse holders to keep your purse from sitting on the floor.

And, for those of you who think it is only women who are stamping... I can tell you that you would be incorrect! Here is proof. Of course they were kinda messing with each other about their purses. I think it matches their outfits, what do you think?  :)

And last picture, but by no means least, are Terri and Mindy (the only two ladies who are actually looking at me taking their pictures and smiling, Terri is on the left, Mindy on the right). This is the same Mindy who had the class at her home IN MAY for us to learn how to make those Sizzix Scallop Square purses (the ones I did for my downline gifts) AND if you look closely i…


Thanks again to my fabulous new friend and honorary Dame Gwen, I am officially here in Nashville at Leadership! The plane trip was VERY uneventful, even managed to take a little nap on that little 1 hour, 10 minute plane ride.  :)

We can pick up our bags as early as 7:30 am. Mindy and Terri have already checked into our room (they arrived yesterday), and the fourth in our group, Terry, arrived shortly after I did. Wonderful husband cleared out some pictures on the memory card for me, so I am planning on taking pictures galore! Hopefully I can figure out how to download them too!

Oh well, while all the stampers are out having fun, I'm trying to finish up my homework for class. My netbook is on the fritz so I'm taking advantage of another computer. Let's hope it all gets finished tonight, because it is due tomorrow! And SU! has us busy until 10:30 pm tomorrow night. Everyone who knows me, KNOWS that I turn into a pumpkin at 9pm. Now if they had a class at 3am, that would be di…

Leadership, Dames and Sale-a-Bration - all in January!

Well, we return from Florida tomorrow (thanks to my folks for putting up with me and the boy for 6 days!). Then, between homework assignments, work schedule, laundry, unpacking and putting away Christmas items (hubby put everything up - I think it is only fair that I take the stuff down, what do you think?).

ANYWAY, between all of that - I will be working on my swaps for Leadership! Thanks again to my fabulous new friend, and honorary Dame Gwen, I leave for Leadership on Wednesday next week! I'm getting so excited but just don't know how I'm going to get everything done! I really do need Hermoine's Time Turner - one that works, not just a little gadget, of course!

Our next Dames meeting is the Saturday AFTER Leadership, on January 22nd. As a member of my downline, they get to see all the cool stuff I will have learned FIRST! One of the benefits of being in my downline. You can sign up - if you hold off until Sale-a-Bration, you usually get a free stamp set too! Just thro…
