Convention 2010 - Sydney - Swaps Convo

I've been wanting to write a Blog entry for weeks now.. but have been lacking in time... Before Regional Training was coming up I wanted to share a funny conversation I had via email with another Demonstrator reguarding swaps....

One of the very exciting things of Conventions and Regional trainings is the swapping that takes place over the duration of these meetings... All the demonstrators make something like a card front to swap with other demonstrators.. This is not only a great way to meet other demonstrators but gives you so many inspirational projects to take home and try out or demo to your own customers.. Whilst we do thank each and everyone we swap with at the time of the exchange some peopel take the time out to thank individuals for these swaps.... something that I unfortunately often tend to do on my blog. But Carolyn took the time to individually thank me and I was really touched by her personal attention. It makes you feel really apprecciated.

Anyway we had this fantastically funny email exchange... And I just wanted to share it with you all.. I hope you get a laugh out of it.. Cause I sure did whilst writing it....

Hi Ursula,

I just wanted to drop you a quick email to say thank you for your lovely Convention swap.

I've finally had time to sit down and have a good look at all of my bounty and I can see how much work you put into your bookmark. I'm learning so much from all of the swaps I've received. I hope you liked my earrings.

I'd like to invite you to be my friend on Facebook. It's a great way of keeping up with what everyone is up to. Find me at 'Carolyn Bennie Ink - Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator'

Hi Carolyn.... I LOVED your earrings!!! I always try to do something left of center for convention.. and love to try and do something you can wear... I make beaded costume jewellery too so it is great to combine the 2.. and it NEVER fails to impress!!!
I have not yet had a chance to email and thank all the people who swapped with me... I love the ideas too... and am sure we will all be inspired for the whole year with our "bounty"as you so eloquently put it!!!!! It truly is a treasure!!! Makes you just want to roll around in them like you’re in mountains of money.. & giggle hysterically!!! ..... but shush... that's our dirty little secret.. cause someone may think I am a bit of a loony if that cat gets out of the bag!!! OK??? Mum's the word.... hehehehe
Would love to be your friend on FB... and visa versa.. I also like to have friends on FB.. hehe.. we are just crafting.... FB.. Stampin' Connections junkies!!! CAN'T get ENOUGH!!!

Thanks for your thanks about my thanks Ursula. You've made me laugh. How much coffee have you had tonight??? And where can I get that brand?

oh no no Coffee for me. Don't drink it.. and that is a good thing I think.... heheh..
I've just finished watching an episode of Glee, one of The Ultimate High school musical and 2 of TRAUMA... I am pumped to sing and dance my way to a bloody emergency... the adrenaline is a pumping... some guy in trauma had his arm ripped off by a concrete mincer and another guy got impaled on a concrete reo barb, some kids blew up a bird bath on Halloween and some gay bar went up in phosphorous smoke from the amazing piro techniques show on the night of their Halloween party... Another restaurant blew up in a cooking fat fire... The ambo got trashed by an old man with a base ball bat who was disgruntled because of how much he got charged for a trip in one... with his neck brace on... Um what else happened... heaps.... It's a great series.. and really does make the adrenaline pump.. and makes me SQUIRM.... but after a good nights sleep I think I am a little more settled... maybe...
Hope you had fun rolling in your swaps... heheh... That is quite funny.. I may just have to blog that... so my dirty little secret will be out.... hehe.
Have a great day... no more rolling in swaps ok.. cause it can be addictive too.... plus it could be a bit dangerous... a brad in the bottom is not nice...

I didn't realize you have to be naked to roll in your swaps!! I've been doing it all wrong. Off to do it again. ;)
