At the Detroit airport

For those in the stamping community, you know we help each other out. When I boarded my return flight from Salt Lake City to Detroit - a fellow demo helped me find space in an overhead compartment for my carry on. Demos were talking and chatting throughout the plane. Belinda Ellsworth, the guest speaker, was also on the airplane. A good time was had by all!

AND when I arrived at the Detroit airport, I saw another fellow demo had several bags. One of them was LAST year's Convention bag, which I also have and LOVE! Anyway, I walked with her to get one of those carts. You will NEVER guess who it was. I had only seen her work on one of the on-line groups that I belong to. AND after arriving home, I found that she and another demo also had won the Heart of Stampin'Up! Award for their work with the SUDDEN_response network (SUDDEN_response is a group of almost 300 demonstrators who stand ready to reach out and help other Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who've had major damage and loss to their stamping spaces and supplies following disasters - fires, hurricanes, floods, tornado's, etc.). Yes! AND, well there's really no more ANDs... her name is Gretchen Barron. She was just a phenomenal person to meet. She was kind enough to pose with me for a picture and here it is.

Now, I just hope that some of her creative gifts and talents have rubbed off on me! :)
