What a weekend and a message from michelle!

Where do I start??? With the winners??

No...I like suspense...

What a FUN FUN weekend. We worked hard, but had a TOTAL blast!!! What a great group of booth workers!!

It started with 2 classes on Friday. We grunged & we did the mini Ranger U distress inks class. One gal who took both classes was Lorraine, who is from Australia, but lives in CHINA. She came all the way to the US for the convention (and another US stamping convention). She chose this convention because she is addicted to Stampers Anonymous. Talk about a ROAD TRIP and a LOYAL fan. I was thrilled that she won the door prize, since she traveled such a distance.

Saturday I got to demo ( NON STOP...phew...) in the booth. THANK YOU ALL for your kind words!! I was thrilled to show you how to use the distress inks and grungeboard. It was obvious that you like what you saw...we sold out of the grungeboard sheets, some inks and some stamps in the first 2 hours! Don't worry...Stampers Anonymous is shipping all of your orders for free...You'll get your packages soon.

Sunday was fun too. Many of the gals & a few guys...came back again to ask some questions, see more demos & to shop for more stamps and supplies. Some brought their friends too, so it was nice to see how excited they were.

Michelle ( Mrs. Stampers Anonymous) is a sweetheart. We shared a room & talked so much that in the 2 nights we were there, we never even turned the TV on. We talked about all kinds of fun stuff. She has read ALL your comments and is impressed by your your enthusiasm for Stampers Anonymous.

Now for the BREAKING NEWS.............. a message from Michelle and some VERY exciting news for 5...yes 5 blog friends.

Hi Wendy, Just wanted you to know that I loved reading all of the comments about SA!! There were so many I could not decide on only one. So I picked 5. Please send out the stamps I gave you and see if they could make some samples with them and email photos to you. I would love to see what they will make with them!!

Have fun today (in studio 490, cuz i know that's where you'll be)

HOW COOL and generous is that???

I LOVED her idea...I'll send out the stamps and the winner will make something, using your free me a photo & I'll post it on the blog for all to see!!
