Off to Convention!

Tuesday, June 24, 2014

The Close to My Heart national convention is the party of the year for consultants. I’m leaving today for a week at Disneyland resort, where I get to mingle with over 1,000 excited consultants as we learn about new products, play with the newest stamps, papers and tools, and have a great time!

Close to My Heart loves Disney, so this isn’t the first time we have attended convention at a Disney resort. Last year we had a fabulous time at Disneyworld in Florida, this year we’re at Disneyland in California. I love that we are so close to all the excitement by staying at a resort hotel, right next to Downtown Disney so it’s easy to walk over and get a quick bite to eat or do some shopping.

One of the highlights of convention is Extravaganza. This is a big showcase of creativity, where consultant teachers create and share their artwork using brand new products.

I am one of 12 extravaganza teachers this year, and I’ve been busy as a bee creating artwork for my class. I’d love to show you what I’ve made, but you’ll have to wait until next week. The new products are all waiting for a big reveal at convention, so it’s all hush-hush before it’s released.

I’ve been lucky enough to have been chosen to teach at convention many times. This year there are only 12 teachers, so I’m honored and a wee bit nervous. The class sizes will be very large, and the pressure is on!

Since I can’t share my newest artwork, I can at least give you some lovely examples of past convention items.
