One of the best parts of a Stampin’ Up! Event is staying in the hotel and having fun with your roommates. I remember my very first Stampin’ Up! event – I was brand new and didn’t know anyone. The only person I had met before was my upline and she was staying with someone already. So I had to make a new friend and found someone that needed a roommate for convention that year.
My family thought I was crazy going out of state and meeting a stranger in a hotel and staying there! I figured if I needed to I’d just go find myself my own room somewhere else. But guess what I walked in that door and met Michele. That was 13 years ago and guess what – she is going to be one of my room mates again this week! We have stayed together many times over the years.
Roommates really are the best. This year we have a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom suite and there will be 7 of us rooming together. Members of my PAWS team will be joining me and I’m so excited. I made some cute gifts for them. We often call them pillow gifts because you leave them on the pillow. I started with a totally different idea but it did not come together. So I ended up with this idea and I love how it turned out.
I stuck with the Mickey theme again. After I made the little friend gifts I decided I wanted to make Mickey tags for my room mates. Everyone’s has their name on it and if they want to they can transfer them to the bag that Stampin’ Up! will give us. If all 7000 of us have the same bag you need something to distinguish yours from everyone else’s.

Inside the black canvas mini bag is a Cupcake in a Mug mix and frosting – so we can make birthday cupcakes. Plus napkins, a spoon and then I have the mug. I also brought mickey themed snacks for us – including more oreos and also goldfish. I found those at the grocery store. Now we have to figure out which night to have our cupcakes.
