Stampin’ Up Founder’s Circle Event: Day 2

So it was over a week ago now that I actually jumped off a cliff in St. George, Utah. Jet lag really had me down for the count this week. I’ve been struggling with vertigo and just a general sense of I don’t want to do anything. That is problematic when you’ve got a full schedule! Anyway, I probably won’t give you a full play by play of the rest of my trip — since I’ve already been home for almost a week – and it would probably take 14 posts.

I’ll admit it got off to a little bit of a bad start. This picture was of me on Wednesday evening. I was supposed to be joining my fellow achievers at a pool-side party to celebrate our achievement. Unfortunately, my plane got delayed in Providence so I didn’t make it in time to catch the bus to St. George so I had to wait for a shuttle to take me instead. Fortunately, the wonderful Jennifer Kruse stayed with me (I wish I got a picture with her!!) and I arrived to the hotel just in time for the first timers meeting, where we each shared what we thought we did differently that got us to
