Two days and counting

Procrastination is not a good thing. I leave for the Stampin Up regional training in two days. For those of you not familiar with a Stampin Up gathering, it is truly a wonderful thing. Imagine walking into a room filled with women (and a few men) who speak your own language. They know ink and paper like they know good friends. They would never, ever judge you for spending too much time or energy or money pursuing the pleasures of rubber stamping or scrapbooking. In fact, in this group, that sort of thing is a reason for celebration.

All regionals or conventions start the same way. You gather, find where to sign in and before youu can do a single thing you see a frenzy of activity. People have swap cards.

Swap Card: (n.) A greeting card lovingly made as a sample for others to collect, copy and enjoy. The minimum number suggested is normally around 40 or so for a small gathering like a regional. If it is a full convention, 100 is much more like it.

In two little days we will jump in the car and begin our weekend of fun. We will be packed. We will be excited. I may be just a tad jumpy. Unless things change. And soon.

I have ONE swap card completed. Just one.
