Last weekend was OnStage, Stampin' Up!'s Convention. Because of COVID they did it all online.
Two of my downline, Amy and Sandy, came over so we could watch together on Friday. Here's how we had it set up so we could watch it on TV:
Just before lunch Amy got a text from Betty, our upline, that the swamp in between their houses was on fire! We ended up driving up there to see how it close it was to everything. This was the view from Amy's driveway:
They live next to her in-laws farm, and part of their woods was burned. We went over to Betty's house and ended up going out in the field behind their house to watch the helicopter drop water on the fire. The neighbors down the road had a fire the night before and thought it was out, but with the high winds, high temps, and low humidity, it started again and took off. No one got hurt and there was no major damage. It could have been way worse!
While we gone, we missed a couple of prize patrols from OnStage! Stampin' Up! had sent out emails with all the info we needed to get into the platform and included a number for everyone. I got number 2, and apparently won a mystery prize! I have to wait until December 1st to find out what it is!
There were more stamping demonstrations and training on Saturday. I'm still trying to watch everything I missed. Too many distractions around here! But here are some interesting facts that were shared:
60,565 demonstrators worldwide,
including 24,003 new demonstrators this year
(the SU! year is October 1, 2019- September 30, 2020)
$215 Million of revenue
$6 Million sold the first day of the 2020-2021 catalog!
over 16,000 Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machines sold so far
1.8 Million packs of card stock sold in the last year
The #1 color of card stock was Misty Moonlight
Hey! That's my name! I was recognized for adding to my team this year! Woohoo!
