Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
Wow … can’t believe this year is flyin’ by … the Retirement list is out, my annual Retreat is only 3 weeks away and the new catalog will be released in June!! That is what is so exciting about attending our Stampin’ Up! event OnStage… we not only got our hands on the new catalog, we got to see (and get) some great new stamp sets and create some cute cards!
As promised … I’ll share part of my roadtrip that brought us to such a fun event… OnStage. Usually I fly but this time I drove (with my new recruit Sarah… also my daughter). We headed out on Wednesday the 5th and got as far as Marion, Illinois. Had dinner at a cute restaurant called 20’s Hideout … we were lucky to hit their all you can eat crab legs! YUM.
Back on the road after a good nights sleep and we’re heading for Memphis, Tennesse …
Memphis is going to be a planned stay! I wanted Sarah to experience something new and fun, and Beale street was the answer! It’s full of good music and good food.
This is also where we stayed at this Historic Peabody hotel … While there, Sarah asked why the lights were flickering and I said “Maybe it’s Haunted” so we googled it and found that some say it is! We believe it’s more famous for their ducks!
After a wonderful stay in Memphis we headed out to Louisiana. Didn’t see any gators or crocs…Whew!
Shreveport is where the Stampin’ Up! event is to be held, so we booked our room at the Shreveport, Hilton because it was attached to the Convention Center where OnStage is being held. It was nice!
I had to be there by Friday evening as I was invited to the Stampin’ Up! CenterStage event…
Here is how Stampin’ Up! hosts CenterStage: Our silver elite and above demonstrators have worked hard to build their businesses and we think they’ve earned a little time in the limelight! That’s why we have CentreStage events . . . to celebrate everything they’ve done to become exceptional Stampin’ Up! demonstrators.
At CentreStage, they get the recognition they deserve, enjoy a bit of pampering, and receive the additional training opportunities they want as they work to bring their Stampin’ Up! business to the next level.
The also treat us to a fabulous dinner and a special gift. We ❤ Stampin’ Up! too!
OH … my, my … is that a SNEAK PEEK of the New In-Colors! I see Tranquil Tide, Lemon Lime Twist, Powder Pink, Berry Burst and Fresh Fig. OH … so many sneak peeks and awesome announcements! I’ts great to be a demonstrator!!
Met some wonderful fellow demonstrators and Stampin’ Up! staff. It was a great night with great food and awesome company! From left to right: Candy, Lydia, France Martin and myself.
I’ll be back tomorrow with more from the OnStage event! This lasted all day and included recognition, training, Make & Takes, Prize Patrol (win FREE stuff), lunch and more!!
Thanks for riding along with me so far!
Have a wonderful day ~

Looks like you had a wonderful time!!!
Oh yes… and OnStage was still yet to come! 🙂
Looks like fun. Early in my marriage, Bill was wined and dined by a company in Shreveport. They wanted to hire him but I couldn’t see moving there…away from family.
I’m glad you’re in Wisconsin!!
WOW! Love that lemon lime twist!!! Thank you for the sneak peek 🙂 Looks like you had a great trip.
We had a great time,… mother / daughter bonding! Then the cherry on top is getting to see all the new stuff! Happy to share … more to come!
