    So how many Cali girls are NOT going to convention? I'd love to go, but just can't get there this year. Sooooo... I was wondering if anyone was interested in doing a SA Cali Convention. We could meet somewhere in SoCal, during convention and do our own swapping, showboxing or whatever! I have no idea how this would all work, but it may appease those of us who have to stay home. Whaddya think? Anyone up for this?

    oooooooo! That sounds like it would be fun! As a beginner, the convention is way too overwhelming!

    Now this sounds like fun! Not sure of my summer vacation plans right now, but I know they don't include convention. If I'm town, I'd be interested in getting together. I'm in the Inland Empire, btw.

    Oh yay! This could be a blast! Since SU! convention is July 21-24, would Saturday, July 24th work for everyone?

    I'm in the Central Valley (and I doubt you all want to drive my way!) but I'd being willing to drive down to SoCal for this. Does anyone know of a place we could hangout at and stamp all day?

    I can ask if we are able to use my library at the school where Samantha & I work. I've got great tables! It will only hold about 12 of us though, without feeling cramped.

    I don't think I'll be going, either, much as I really, REALLY want to. As an alternative, I'd love to meet you gals for a fun day of stamping sisterhood!

    Sounds perfect! But would we have to be quiet? 'Cause that may be a problem for me. :)

    Awww! I don't think my fiancé will let me go to CA, since I can't even go to UT, haha! I'll be there in spirit!

    So what sort of things should we plan for our SoCal Mini-Convention? Since I've never been to a SU! convention, or Leadership, or shoebox swap, or even a downline meeting, I have no idea what we should do. Anyone have any ideas on how to make this just as fun as being in Salt Lake?

    I've only been to Leadership once, and I went to the SoCal Stamp Mania once a few years back.

    Definitely a shoebox swap and a regular swap. Anything else depends on how many people come. Perhaps a few people can volunteer to teach a cool new technique?

    If I was going to be home, I would have loved to come. But will probably be in Alberta that weekend. Hope you gals have a great time.

    So, should we make this official and post this little gathering under the Stampin' Events forum? I really want to do this. I'd be willing to drive the three hours to stamp with all of you!

    Do you want to pick a date first? Then I can move the whole thread.

    Just wondering if a Saturday would be best, for those that have a "real" job. :) How about Saturday, July 24th? Would this work for the library?

    I will check on that date. Weekends are always better for me!

    Bummer, I can't move the thread - my mod powers don't work here.

    You mean you don't have enough power by just wiggling your eyebrows, to make this site do anything you want? I'm shocked!
