Hobbiest to demonstrator
Being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is so rewarding. Not only do I get to be creative every day, I also get to be a creative coach, offering fresh project ideas and encouragement to my customers and friends.
For me, helping someone create that perfect project for a special occasion is the best feeling in the entire world. After all, creating cards, scrapbook pages, and gift items is about more than just stamps and ink—it’s about sharing a part of yourself with the people you love.
A few years ago my two teenage daughters and I went to a stamp class held by a friend, Michele. The girls were really into it and we placed a sizeable order. Allie and Lizzie wanted to make Christmas gifts for their friends and I wanted to make my own Christmas cards. I had found a new way to stay connected to the girls. Let's face it, if you can find something that your teenage girls want to do with you, then you jump at it!
My demonstrator friend Michele, called to tell me our "goodies" were in. I brought the bags home and they sat for a few days on the dining room table. Honestly, they may have sat there way past the holidays if it hadn't been for a terrible ice storm. Most of you know the one I am referring to....it knocked out power to much of the Northeast. We were without power for ten days.
Life was cold, but these were some of the best days I had with my kids. We played board games, cards, flashlight games and yes, we did Stampin' Up. Thank goodnes for Stampin' Up. We created by daylight and by candlelight. There was no turning back!
I joined the Stampin' Up family to be a hobbiest enjoying the discount and all the free products. I have choosen to share it with you because I love it!
