10 year Anniversary!



Wow!  It is hard to believe that I signed up to be a Stampin' Up! demonstrator TEN years ago today, May 7th!  I'm amazed at the journey that I've taken.  I started out thinking that I only wanted the discount.  Then a friend asked if I would teach a couple classes on stamping…and the rest is history!  I am simply blessed to have the friends I've made thru Stampin' Up! in my life!  I probably would never have met them otherwise, but I am SO thankful that I did!  I earned my first Incentive trip on a Alaska Cruise last year and was totally blown away by this awesome company, Stampin' Up!  Thank you Shelli and the rest of the Stampin' Up! team for all your support.


Over 10 years ago I went to a workshop and was amazed at what a stamp, some markers and Dazzling Diamonds could do for a snowman card.  I placed that card on my shelf and must have walked by and admired it at least 20 times!  lol!  I remember buying everything that I needed to recreate that card…I had NOTHING!  I was placing MONTHLY orders trying to accumulate everything I needed.  Finally deciding that enough was enough…I would just sell it myself to get the discount.


Since I signed up in May, I was able to go to that year's Convention in July.  I was hooked…I've gone to all 10 Conventions since I've been a demo…and only missed one Leadership since I qualified.  I'm SO happy to go and run into people I've met online and from previous conventions…one of the best parts about going for me!  It's my GIRL time!  I love the excitement and all the information that Stampin' Up! gives us!  I come back re-energized and ready to dig in again!  It charges my creative batteries!


In February 2008 I started my Blog as a place I can share my creations.  Thanks for checking in and supporting my blog…you all keep me growing and stretching creatively.  Recently I ran across a box of the first cards I made ten years ago…I sat and laughed at them!  I'm happy to say that my skills HAVE improved!  It was a real eye-opener!  lol!


Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!!!!  I appreciate your support and your business!  Thanks to my upline, downline, my stamping friends and customers!  And…here's hoping for another 10 years!

Congratulations Connie on your 10 years with SU!!! 
Although I've only been stamping for 3 years, I recently gave a BUNCH of cards to an organization that could use cards that were my "earlier works" and I too chuckled at them and thought, oh thank goodness I advanced in my skill set!!!  Cheers to the next 10 years!
