New Catalog Products Sneak Peek Here! Centrestage Edition

Stampin’ Up! hosted demonstrators for an evening of Centrestage Leadership and a day of Onstage stamping fun during #minneapolisonstage2019. Other events were located around the world simultaneously. I’ll be sharing photos from both events in the next few blog posts.

I first had to meet my nephew since I was staying at his place. Hotel Nephew was spacious and quiet. Drew was elsewhere while I camped out. I left a little something gift bag for letting me couch surf.

Then I was off to navigate the streets from Edina to Minneapolis Convention Center. Thank goodness for my British accented siri since it’s been many years since I have visited the Twin Cities in this area.

I just happened to be walking by when the convention center sign flipped to welcome us. The downtown skywalk system in the background helps navigating between buildings in all seasons.

Tulips blooming in the Minnesota snow outside the convention center were so pretty reminding me to take life as it comes, thriving through each challenge.

Registration staff were right inside the main doors and greeted us with this awesome bag!

Now imagine about 23 tables set for Centrestage Leadership waiting for us close to the stage…

We could have had our Desserts First! All were delicious. The cinnamon cupcake with the straw curl and the lemon meringue were my favorites.

Buffet options including cauliflower puff cakes, quinoa salad, apple and craisen coleslaw, jerk chicken, cajun chicken, green beans and roasted potatoes. There were a few more options I did not sample. Yum!

A special gift for Centrestage attendees had room to tuck a punch inside. It is more of a currency purse with inside pockets on both sides and room in the middle. The purse has both weight and texture that feels like pampering:)

We had some business talks before and after dinner easing ourselves into stamping mode. Thanks for a great Centrestage Leadership!

I’ll be posting more about Saturday’s events so stay tuned!
