OnStage was Wednesday through Saturday, so we decided to sleep in on Sunday and then hang out by the pool.

We went to Disney Springs Sunday night and had supper there and did some shopping. I had fun in the Lego store! It brought back memories of taking Chase there! Yep, I bought him some Legos for Christmas! They had a cool Christmas Tree Trail which was 27 trees, each decorated with a different Disney theme. They even had some "snow"!
Monday we drove to Daytona Beach. We went to the beach, had lunch at LandShark Bar & Grill, and found an awesome little ice cream place called Scoops. It rained off and on, but we got some cool pictures!

When we left, there was a huge rainbow. It was so bright!

Tuesday we drove to Tampa/St. Pete and went to St. Pete's Beach. We had lunch at Rick's Reef and found another little ice cream place on the way back.
All of my goodies from OnStage!
This was such a fun trip! I can't wait for the next OnStage! The live, 3 day event will be Auckland, New Zealand, but there's a one day local event in Minneapolis! If you'd like to join us, you just need to be a Demonstrator! Contact me for more info!
Some pictures from the second day of OnStage in Orlando! We all wore our Sunshine Stampers t-shirts!

We had a four hour break after lunch and before the evening session. This is when most of the scheduled swaps were. Sandy had several and Betty and I did the Stamp Share For Leaders swap. We sat here until everyone was done. We got lots of comments on our shirts!

Our shirts. One of Amy's friends made them for us.
Instead of going out to eat during the break, we ordered pizza and had it delivered to the Convention Center! It tasted so good!

We sat outside for awhile to enjoy the warm weather (it was in the 80's pretty much every day we were there!) before we went in for the evening session, which went until 10. We were exhausted after a very long, busy day!
OnStage started on
Thursday November 8. There were 6,000 stampers there!
Here's most of our group, helping Sandy assemble some
swaps she didn't have time to put together yet.

After lunch, we had two

Sandy took a picture of
the table decorations. Note the confetti- it ended up everywhere!
One of the big
announcements during OnStage is the new Cling Stamps! The red rubber is the
same as what we've always had, but the new labels really cling! This one stuck
to my finger so I decided to take pictures of it to show you how well they
Starting with the
2019 Occasions Catalog and Sale-A-Bration Brochure, we will only have Cling
Stamps and Photopolymer Stamps. No more new sets with wood blocks! The sets in
the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog will stay as is, but the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog
will not have any wood-mount sets, other than background stamps.

These stamps are awesome! I can't wait for you to try them!
Here's a fun video of Stampin' Up!'s 30th Anniversary Song!
This was shared at OnStage in Orlando November 7-10. It was so much fun!
We flew to Orlando Wednesday morning and arrived mid afternoon. As soon as we got our rental car, we drove to the condo we rented to check in and drop off our luggage. Then we drove to the Convention Center and checked in for OnStage. I got on a bus to Epcot for CentreStage and the rest of the girls went to eat, get groceries, and hang out at the condo until I was done. CentreStage is for Demonstrators who have achieved the title of Silver Elite and up. Stampin' Up! paid for us to get into Epcot for the afternoon/evening, provided buses to get there and back, and had a reception for us to end the evening.
This was in the World Pavilion, which is through a gate and off to the side of Epcot by Canada. I've been there a few times and never knew it was there. They did karaoke and had lots of desserts.
Fireball Donuts- a glazed donut with extra sugar, cooked in a pan with Fireball whiskey and another type of liquor (couldn't read the label) to caramelize it, then served with homemade vanilla ice cream. It was good, but very sweet. One bite was enough for me!
