It was on this day, waaaaayyyy back in 2009, that I decided to take the plunge and become a Stampin' Up! demonstrator. It was a scary step because I was worried about meeting minimums, and what would happen if I didn't. But I decided that the discount I could get on the supplies that I absolutely LOVED, and had to have, was worth taking that step.
Well, you know what? There was no pressure AT ALL! I was able to make the minimum to stay active so I could keep getting that discount, and I made lots of new friends along the way that I never would have known if I hadn't become a demonstrator! And even if I hadn't been able to stay an active demo, nothing bad would have happened. I could have kept everything and that would be that. They wouldn't take my birthday away, though I'm at the age that I'd gladly give it back, LOL!
I also learned how much fun it is to attend Stampin' Up! events, like the one that is coming up in November in Orlando. This is the Stampin'Up! 30th year celebration, and it's going to be HUGE! I know we are going to get lots of free stuff from the Occasions catalog that will be coming out in January, and get to play with lots of new products, too, like the Delicate Lace Edgelits shown here!
If you think you'd like to check out the fun, I'd love to have you join me in Orlando! The event sign up is August 14th (and will sell out FAST), so if you join my stampin' family this month, you will qualify to go to OnStage in Orlando!
And here's the best part......you'll have until the end of December to make your first quarter minimum, you get to choose $125 in products for only $99 w/free shipping, and for this month only you'll get a free assortment of TEN ink pads in your kit (your choice of color family).
