Illinois Mini convention was a success
Thank you splitcoast for announcing the Can't Go to convention Illinois Mini Conventionthat was held on August 16. Connie from Glen Ellyn organized this event. It was held at a Holiday Inn. Over 60 stampers attended. A couple of ladies came from Stoughton, Wisconsin. We made 3 make and takes and Connie was very generous with prizes. There most of been 20 prizes given away!! Not to mention over 50 swaps were exchanged.The absolutely best part was that the table I was at,we had a group of stampers who fast became friends. We named our group the Su Snickerettes and plan on going to regional in Madison this fall. Personally, I have never laughed so much in a long time. We're all on scs now, so I hope that you too have an opportunity to meet with others who are stampin and having fun. I have to say that Connie out did herself on this mini convention. It was a terrific idea and a fantastic time. She is planning another one later on in the year...so anybody in Illinois...hope you can join in. I will have one of the snickerettes who is computer savvy download the make and take samples.

Anyways...KUDOS to Connie! She did a fantastic job!

Illinois mini-convention rocked!
:wink: Yes, I was seated at the *fast-friends* table...too fun!!!
And I want to say thank you to Connie, the sweetheart that she is for putting that convention together. It was outstanding & she was more-than-generous w/her supplies, time, energy & free prizes she contributed.
I hope to see my *table* at Regionals in Madison this November b/c I'm sooo there!

Oops! I didn't read the post ahead of mine completely. Was the event posted on SCS?


Bev Barton 07-19-2004 05:55 PM

It was on July 16 and it was at a Holiday Inn in Glen Ellyn. I am not sure where the original post was. I can email you her email address privately, so you can get on her list for the next one. We would love to see you there.

Illinois Mini Convention
Thank YOU Connie for a great time at the mini convention there were sooo many great ideas up on the boards and the fedexed stuff from convention using the new sets just makes me want to buy/sell more. Our table was truly unique and I look forward to hooking up with you guys in wisconsin. I have some scant knowledge of Madison from my college days I wonder how much has changed??? Hopefully there is no smoky places there though I'd hate to have Bev feel offended!!!

Illinois Mini Convention
OK Snickerettes....I am offically on SCS. Jeez....didn't think I was ever going to find this forum Bev!!

Thanks to Connie for organizing the mini convention and getting me hooked up with my new stampin friends. I had so much fun at our table that I laughed until my ribs ached and my cheeks were sore. Look out Madison, Wi....here we come!!

Okay, Claudia and Denise. Glad you finally found this and have joined in on the fun. For all the gals who were at the mini convention, glad you are here on scs. It is the best!! I am sure that Madison won't know what to do when we get there for regionals. Bev
