Patriotic Card and I'm Back From Convention 2014!

I'm back! What a week it was!  I loved every second and can hardly wait for next year's Close To My Heart Convention in July 2015, back at Disneyland. Want to join me? Join my team!

Before I share a bit of my week, I thought I'd remind you about the CTMH specials that end today.  You can find details of each special here.

1. June Stamp of the Month: Yours for only $5 ($17.95 value) with a $50 order. I made the card at the top of the post with this fun set and there is a product list with links at the end of this post. If ordering on my website, you'll be prompted to add this set before you check out.

2.  Celebrate 30: Choose from one of many awesome collections valued at over for  only $30 with a $50 order.  If ordering on my website, you'll be prompted to choose a collection before you check out.

Back to Convention...

The new products that will be debuting on August 1 are top rate, ship shape, better than ever, you'll love them forever products.  I had so much fun seeing them, playing with them, drooling over them, and taking some home last week.  I'll be sharing them with you as August nears.  In the meantime, I'll share a few photos from my week. If you look close you might just see the new Idea Book in my hands in the first photo. It's gorgeous!

We rode rides at Disney, got spoiled by CTMH, had delicious food, saw and played with brand new products (that, as I mentioned above, debut to the public on August 1), laughed, cried (happy tears), danced, had delicious food (oh yeah, I already mentioned that. It bears repeating).

I drove with a few downline. We drove down to Cedar City to stay with my kiddos on Monday evening and went to watch Daysha in Little Mermaid at Tuachan. She was fabulous!

Tuesday we drove the rest of the way to Disneyland and spent the evening at the park.  We had fun riding rides and watching the fireworks.

The first day of Convention (Wednesday) was Leadership Day. This is a day that CTMH puts on for all Managers and above each year the day before the general convention begins. It focuses on leadership and advanced business building. It was a TERRIFIC day and I learned so much.  That evening I had my team meeting. I had 37 of my over 300 team members in attendance. We had a blast!  Here were are:

The next day (Thursday) was the beginning of Convention. This is the day the new catalog is revealed, along with tons of new products, papers and stamps.  Saying it feels like being a kid at Christmas is an understatement.
My buddy, Michelle and I. Soul sisters!

Kristine and Monica, VP's of Marketing, Training and Events started off the show with an "Amazing Race" themed skit
Thursday evening I attended the special dinner that Close To My Heart hold every year for Directors and above each year. I was proud to have 2 team members who are Directors join me. Unfortunately, we somehow missed getting a photo of the 3 of us, but I did get one of Brenda and I with Mickey before the dinner started. After our fancy schmancy dinner, CTMH took us to Calfornia Adventure to see The World of Color from a special reserved section right up front.

Friday was more fun, motivation and inspiration. I taught all day on Friday...a class called The Locomotion of Personal Promotion.  I taught it 8 times to over 100 people each class. By the end of the day, I barely had a voice.  Friday evening was our awards banquet.  It was full of amazing food and entertainment. My team, The Pacemakers, won an award for #2 in team sales.  We were so excited!

Saturday was full of more creative classes, a delicious dinner and dancing.  I don't think I took a single picture on Saturday. Darn!

As you can see, CTMH puts on a fabulous convention. Join me next year by joining my team!

Looks like lots of fun was had. Yay for Brenda! I know she has worked super hard for that "promotion". Thanks for sharing some snippets of convention. Hoping that some day I will have the opportunity to attend, too. Happy 4th to you and your family! (And congrats on your achievements, too.)

Fun photos of a great time! So thankful that I was able to attend and to meet you in person. Congrats on the Pacemakers' Sales award. Looking forward to many more conventions.
