Finishing Up our Holiday 2017 Catalog Kick Off!

Well - Stampers!  I hope that you have LOVED this 10 day kick off to the Holiday 2017 Catalog Kick off!!  Know what I love?  We have had 10 days of Holidays and have yet to make a dent in the huge pile of Christmas stamps that are sitting on my table!!  I do plan to crack in to those this week, so samples will start appearing soon.  Those of you in the Indy area - I have some special Christmas events on the calendar.

Today we close out our specials - you will have a little longer to put this order in so you can take a minute to look back over everything to see what you want to cross off your shopping list first!
The final special during this catalog kick off week - spend $100 on merchandise (before shipping and tax) on my website using Hostess Code 2MVRWQRT when prompted and you will receive the PAINTED HARVEST stamp set in the mail from me ABSOLUTELY FREE!!  Offer expires September 10 midnight EST.

Today I have something special to share with you.  Working with Stampin' Up! there are 2 "best" things that come with the job..... first, is the creating.  For those of us who loved to color as kids and always would have picked art class over gym class - it is easy to get swept up in spending the entire day ignoring the HTML and math part of the job and just cutting out flowers!

But even better than the art is the friendships.  Today's cards are made by women who are part of my demonstrator team.  Ladies who all chose art as well.  One I have known my entire life and she has been on the Stampin Up journey with me over 20 years.  One I have known since High School and if it wasn't for Stampin' Up we likely wouldn't be friends again.

Others I see mainly when we get together to create or discuss business - or often as part of online groups we are part of.  These ladies are all fun to be with - all are great moms, great wives, great cooks!  We share more than stamping, so as we stamp the conversation flows easily.

And, there are others that I met through stamping - over 20 years ago - and now they are part of my circle of dearest friends.  I can't imagine life without them.    So, sometimes it is ink and paper.  Other times it is laughter, tears, life, death, weddings, grandbabies, graduations, job loss, celebrations and so much more.

These cards are ones we made and traded with each other at our last get together a couple of weeks ago.  Not everyone used this set to trade - but so many did.  I had already written here that I thought it might be the most popular set from the new catalog.  I think these girls proved me right.

If you have ever thought about being a demonstrator - there is nothing to lose!  It is such an enriching experience.  Some of us are working toward earning a trip to Greece together.  And next year most of us are planning to celebrate Stampin' Up's 30th Anniversary together in Orlando.
