My Leadership Highlights – Day 1


Wow!  What an incredible week I just had! 

I wish to take some time over the next few days and share with you some of the most important happenings of the past week:

The day of Manager’s Reception, Wednesday, I was able to spend with Chris.  We got in some great shopping which includes me visiting my favorite clothing store, Christopher & Banks.  In fact, I pretty much only buy clothes when I’m in the US now, cause I love that store so much!

We had researched restaurants in Nashville on the Food Network website, before we came, so we would know the best places to eat while there.  Wow, do they ever know where to eat!!!  We had lunch at a little “hole in the wall”diner called “Jack’s BBQ”.  The place hasn’t been updated since the 1970’s, food or decor, but we are so glad.  It was the most amazing pulled pork dinner that can be imagined!!

I then met up with a couple of new friends and headed off to Manager’s Reception:


That’s the amazingly beautiful and talented lady, Shelli Gardner, introducing the evenings events

Demonstrators enjoying the line dancing to live entertainment – it’s so neat to see everyone in matching cowboy hats, compliments of Stampin’ Up!  They sure know how to throw a party!  No, I did not dance, I was too busy visiting with new friends and eating pulled pork BBQ again, for the second time in one day!

Look what I received!  The cutest magnets and wrapped chocolate bars from Becky Roberts.  She has posted details on these projects on her blog if you want them.  How cute are these???!!!

This amazing little creation was given to me by my new wonderful friend Kim Sinclair. The small details in this project make it one of my favorite things EVER!  Look at the details in this project – from the tiny red envelope tied by silver string, to the rhinestone accent before the word LOVE at the bottom!  I’m in awe Kim – I bow to you!!!

Over the next few days, I will share a sampling of the swaps I received during the three days in Nashville. 

Here are the first few cards:

This has to be my favorite!  It was made by Allison Okamitsu, a demo who I met last year and lives only minutes from me.  We had no idea we would see each other at Leadership again!!  So nice to visit with her again.

I’ll be back tomorrow with more Leadership and swap photos.
