Happy 5th Anniversary to Me! 🙂

That’s right – it’s been 5 years since I joined Stampin’ Up!  I still remember making the decision; I  thought about the great deal I was getting on the Starter Kit, and I thought I’d ‘give it a try’ to see if I wanted to sell the products.  The anticipation of waiting for my Kit, and the excitement in opening up the boxes – even my 2 boys were helping me unpack them!

Well – you can see  how that worked out! 🙂  I’m still here, and not only sharing the terrific products and all the ways to use them, but I’m building my own team of demonstrators, holding classes, presenting at  home parties, and having booths at craft fairs.  And yes- I’m really enjoying myself!

I have to say that the best part of being a demonstrator is the people that I meet.  I get to meet people who are from different parts of the world – both customers and other demonstrators; who have all different kinds of jobs and life experiences, and we have at least one thing in common to start – our love of stamping!  Being part of the large world-wide Stampin’ Up! family has enriched my life in the demonstrator friends that I’ve made, the stamping and business experience I’ve gained, and the fun and informative Stampin’ Up! events that I’ve attended.

I just received this special card in the mail from our Stampin’ Up! Canada office, located in Calgary, Alberta:

5th anniv card

Isn’t that nice?!  I love the paper with the pears 🙂

It’s signed by Dale Hampshire, who is our Canadian Stampin’ Up! Manager.  I know that a lot of demonstrators who are part of the Canadian Focus Team spend their time creating these cards, so I just want to say ‘thank you’ to them for their time, and for Dale & team for sending out these cards to us Canadian demonstrators.

Oh – I forgot to mention the money made, and the free stamp sets  & products that I’ve earned!  🙂  Yes, along with our commission for products sold, Stampin’ Up! is also very good to us in rewarding us with ‘Flex Points’ that we can use for business supplies or free products; they regularly hold challenges and events for us, and the rewards are generally product based – because you know, we can never have enough stamps and supplies!! 😉

Anyway, I wanted to let you know about this milestone, so that I can share the celebration with YOU, stamping friend!  Because of course, I wouldn’t still be here, 5 years later, without your support, encouragement and sales.

Until next time – happy stamping!

I've always liked to create things, but I'm not a great artist, or sculptor, or any type of 'traditional' artist - but I love to create! I love the satisfaction of a completed project. Whether a card, painting or other project - as long as it can create a smile, evoke a feeling, or some type of reaction in the recipient. I hope you will enjoy sharing my creations, and occasional ramblings; I'd enjoy having you create with me! :)
