CK Ed Board meeting

I had the great pleasure of making a trip out to Utah last week for the annual Creating Keepsakes Editorial Board meeting.

at the CK office
L to R: Stacy Cohen, Jana Morton, me, Joannie McBride, Jing-Jing Nickel, Autumn Baldwin, Laina Lamb
love these girls!!

It was a fun few days!
We "worked" a lot to plan articles, features, & special issues for the rest of 2013 and 2014. 
{you are going to love what's to come...if i do say so myself!}
And all of our hard work was rewarded with some time to play!

First stop: Stampin' Up! headquarters

L to R: Jing-Jing Nickel, Stacy Cohen, Laina Lamb, Autumn Baldwin, me, Jana Morton

Let me just tell you, Stampin' Up! is gorgeous! 
Totally not what I was expecting in a manufacturing "warehouse". 
I am kicking myself for not taking a picture of the outside of the building to share with you!
We got to tour the facility and see how they operate. 
Then we got to play!
And we got messy!

But you know we had fun!

L to R: Jing-Jing, Laina, Kerri Russell, Jennifer Schaerer, Stacy, Megan Hoeppner

Next stop: American Crafts!
I was only slightly excited about that. 

L to R: me, Jana, Jing-Jing, Stacy, Laina, Autumn
it sure was windy...check out my awesome hair!

We got to watch them whip up some pens. 
Very cool!

And don't be jealous, but they had a lot of Thickers there!

All good things must come to an end.
I was nervous before I went. 
I didn't really know anybody.
I wasn't sure what I was getting myself into.
But I am so glad I went!
I met some awesome girls.
I enjoyed being a part of the process. 
And I am stoked about the next year!

L to R: Jana, Laina, Jing-Jing, me

Happy Wednesday to ya!
