Happy 25th SU! FMS68


I am off to Stampin' Up's leadership gathering in Florida!  Stampin' Up! is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year and we have been told there are lots of surprises in store!  I am looking forward to seeing my stamping friends again.  Meeting up can be challenging when you are in a large convention center and there are over 1000 demonstrators around.  Texting and voice mails are the best way to communicate so the first thing our group did two years ago was swap cell phone numbers.  About half way through the first day I was feeling a little left out when no one had contacted me about meeting up between classes or at lunch - and no one was answering my texts.  I wandered the dining room for a while at lunch until I finally found my group.  They were all worried about me since I didn't answer any of their messages.  I pulled out my phone and showed them that no one had contacted me.  And then my phone rang - it was my son.  

"Mom", he said.  "I have all sorts of messages from ladies inviting me to lunch or wanting to meet me later today after something called Make 'n Takes.  You know anything about this?"

Yep you know what I did!  Our numbers are similar and I gave his to all of my new stamping friends instead of mine!  One gal actually talked to him and said he was so polite and was very sorry but he couldn't meet her for lunch.  She thought she had dialed the wrong number - until she got him again.

I promised him I would be much more careful this year............






                         Oh that Jen Mitchell has a wonderful sketch for us this week at FMS!
