I'm typing this in my hotel room the night before Convention begins, soaking up the peace and quiet after a day filled with traveling, lunch with a friend, and a crowded, fun-filled 1.5 hours of crafting at a pre-conference stamp camp put on by several demonstrators (I'll show you those projects another day).
Today I'll show you what I've prepped to bring.
First, here's my name badge with an add-on tag showing the name of my penultimate upline's group. She sends these out each year to attendees so she can identify the thousands who "belong" to her. Next to it is the bag tag I made for my convention bag, 'cuz there's gonna be thousands of them in the convention center for the next few days! One of the exciting surprises is to see what the bag looks like...just 12 hours and we'll know!
While I am not doing any "real" swapping, either generally with other attendees or in any organized swaps, I did bring along a few cards for specific purposes.
You may know that SU! partners with the Ronald McDonald House Charities each year (the Sprinkles of Life set is the RMHC set this year - a portion of the $ you pay to purchase it goes to RMHC). There's a collection of all kinds of cards happening at Convention to be distributed to the RMHs all over the country for use by the staff and residents. I went through my stash and brought a couple to donate.
SU! also has swap boards that people can put one or more of their creations on, and I've brought a couple for that purpose, too.
I also have a couple of friends that I'm planning on swapping with, and this is what I made for that:
And then, sometimes you see a card someone is swapping and you just really want it, so I have a couple of cards to have on hand just in case!
