Day 2 was pretty light and easy. After returning the rental car and a trip to Dillard's, I pretty much sat in the Gathering Place all afternoon working on our Make & Take project which is a 20-page 8×8 album. While in there, my 5th level up upline, Jill Olsen gave me the two gifts below. Super, super cute! The fabric gift is a shoulder purse.



I sat at a table with our CEO Shelli Gardner and her lovely daughter Sara Douglass. The two most photogenic people ever.


After dinner, we walked back to our hotel. We have the whole place!


Always love spending time with one of my very dearest Stampin' Up! buddies, Patty Bennett.


There was a guy making Cinnamon Almonds and they were served in these. How cute!


Our pajama party is just beginning. We go from snacks and gathering to hearing 5 business tips from fellow demonstrators then we swap.


For the 1st time, we were gifted special totes to collect our swaps. Some vignettes of business tips were compiled into the cute little My Digital Studio sampler.


And here's the loot! Here are my 120 swaps that I am just about to savor and look through, one by one. At first glance, though, this is the best bunch of swaps I've ever received at a Founder's. What's sort of ironic is that we were asked to focus on a "2-layer" card rather than the WOW cards many tend to bring. I think it was challenging for high achieving demonstrators to scale it back but, I think it was brilliant. I see more truly demonstratable cards than I've ever seen in a swap. I'm so excited from what I have seen so far and now back to business…. Good night!
