Okay - I'm pooped but they're all here!! Here's what you're gonna see... The most AMAZING cupcakes from Mini's Cupcakes!! INCREDIBLE, especially the peanut butter one. Jenn and I are bonded forever through this peanut butter cream cheese frosting atop the PERFECT cake. The manager of the store was a sweetheart.

You will see the world's strangest hotel room door. Looks like a little engineering got in the way.

Our cool hotel hallway phones at the Monaco.

Did you think I wouldn't get the cupcake called "Blue Hawaii"??? Hey Judie!! The next one is the peanut butter blitz, then the pink one is the Diva. OF COURSE.

Then some main stage photos - this crazy spiraly 3D card that is SO cool and really easy. I'll post instructions when I get home.

Oh PS - sorry for what looks alternately like a large knee or boob in my main stage photos - it's part of the set, but I admit it looks a little sketchy in my photos. All project photos are main stage, images copyright Stampin' Up! etc. Then check that tin - mary polcin stamped on it with White STazon - sassy.

Then Pierre - out and about again, but they will fishnap him tomorrow I predict and substitute an imposter. Au Revoir Pierre - we had some good times. XO

LOVE the set with the chandelier and the Upsy Daisy - want them now!!!!

And look at the freaking Washington Apple DSP - WOWZA. Love it.

The big spider and the Thanksgiving stuff is the Decor - LOVE IT!!!!!

I won't even tell you about the convention special for it - you'll be mad and won't love me anymore.

Then me & Jane - we were separated at birth - getting to march for our $100K in sales - YAY - love that girl!!

Then Jill Kocherhans demoing the new decor stuff for fall _ WOW - look at the colors!!!! Ginormous flowers are adorable!!! She is so charming too.

Random picture of my cute fish teacup at Takashi. I think I convinced Kristina Werner to try it - it's awesome. Then a pic of me, Jenn and Neelam outside, then a pic of NEELAM'S FIRST SWAP!!!

Then more me & Jane and the soooo cute bookmarks from main stage!!!

Mary Polcin made the coolest book with these blank cardboard CD sleeves with a diagonal pocket on the right.

The first person to leave a comment telling me where to get these cheap wins CONVENTION ONLY GOODIES FROM MEMENTO MALL!!

You guys are really sweet.

Thanks for the comments.

No - only demos at convention get spiral bound catties, BTW.

More stuff in the morning!!! Oh and PS - I talked to your husband! He's very sweet! I didn't take a pic though - I will try tomorrow!!

And Ellie - BOTH - we will get our own blogs AND we have permission to link to our blogs on our DBWS.

And :( - I don't think they will sell the leftover convention bags - they never have since I've been a demo. I wish they woul.

Good night!



  1. Not sure..but I think you can get those CD sleeves at

    I'll do some more research on that one!

    Awesome pics...the cupcakes looked heavenly!

  2. Scratch that...try have a zillion different cardboard CD sleeves!

    OK, I am all hopped up on candy and Mountain Dew (name that movie), but mostly on convention pics. I am going to bed so I can pack for Florida tomorrow! Have a great night!

  3. Thanks for all the fantastic pictures!!! Loving every one of them!!

  4. The red and green Cheers to You card...what is it on the scallops?? Look like Dew Drops or regular rhinestones (not brads) to me. Is this a new embellishment??? Would love to know. :)

  5. What great photos! It's good to see that Lucky Pierre is till afloat, and I can almost taste the mac nuts on that Blue Hawaii cupcake. I can see a few stamps I can't possibly live without. Have a great time and a safe trip home. Thanks for sharing so much with us.

    With aloha,


    If you haven't found the folders, here's the link. Love your blog...just found it and enjoying living vacariously at the convention...only wish I could get one of those cupcakes. Maybe next year.

  7. Great stuff!! The door looks like my front door... well, if they had pretty etched glass in the middle and no peep hole. LOL!!

  8. I'm really appreciating all of your great pics! It's the next best thing to being there!

  9. You can also find the CD sleeves at if you do not need a ton. I have not compared prices, but generally I am buying other alterable items at the same time.
