Christmas Extravaganza Recap - Part FIVE plus SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENTS!!!

What a fantastic experience Christmas Extravaganza was! I look back at it with very fond memories in a time when I needed to find some happiness since the devastating loss of both my Dad and my Grandmother in September. I can't tell you what a blessing this group of demonstrators have been to me. I was very fortunate to work with them on this event, as well as the ladies who assisted with the Christmas Crop area.

Phyllis Shepherd, my upline and Stampin' Up! mentor, was our fearless leader throughout the planning and execution of this event. Could not have done it without her!! I also was "wowed" by the hard work of my downline, Daphne Wright (who could not attend as a demonstrator, but did a TON of prep work with us) and Patricia Crawford, as well as my 2nd-level downline, Tammy Baldwin. These ladies were phenomenal and are always a joy to work with. I also had the pleasure of meeting my "sideline/Stampin' Sister," Tracy Skinner, who was not only a talent, but a barrell of laughs.

Kathleen Guion and Katie Mattox were a great support system, helping us to register attendees and filling in wherever they were needed at a moment's notice.

I am looking forward to doing another Extravaganza in Spring 2010 and hope that all of these wonderful and talented ladies will join me again at that time!
