I just returned from our annual Fun Stampers Journey convention and it couldn’t have been any more amazing. This year it was held at the Sheraton Grand in Chandler, Arizona. The resort is lovely, with several restaurants and unbelievable views.
The first day of convention, we were treated to a tour of the Journey Station and lavished with delicious goodies.
Due to the remarkable growth of Fun Stampers Journey, the space has been enlarged and decor radically changed. It is quite beautiful and we were invited to craft while we were there.
Later that afternoon we registered and received our gorgeous denim bags which held our convention information and the stamp sets we would be using at a later time.
In the evening we attended the first meeting where the theme of Dreams Happen, was presented in a beautiful video. And the moment came when we received our priceless new catalogues. The new line of products is beyond belief.
Pre-Order your copy of the catalogue here.
Day two was filled with awesome demos of the new products and an introduction to our new partnership of the Gel Press. What fun we will have with this. Would you believe that Richard has designed an FSJ only heart template gel press and we are the only company carrying the 8 1/2 by 11 inch size.
On Day three we attended several breakout sessions to help us with our business growth and creative endeavors. Our awards banquet was held that evening and as always impressed us with the sales and recruit growth for the past year.
Day four included another breakout session, where some of us learned some tips for doing videos. Yes, I’ll be trying some videos this summer. We were treated to several demos by fellow coaches as well as Journey Crew members. Richard shared with us his vision for the future and it was time to say our bittersweet goodbyes until next summer.
We stayed a few extra days to visit the local Outlet mall, as well as the casino. We enjoyed a nighttime cruise down the river by the resort and were awed by the full moon reflecting on the river. Every year we find Arizona to be a beautiful place to visit and while it is quite hot in June, it is worth it to enjoy the beautiful scenery and culture.
