Swappin' and Swappin'!

Today is the last session of the Stampin' Up! OnStage event. I'm swapped out, and now that everyone has seen my swaps, I can share some of them with you. This was one of the designs. Spirited Snowmen is such a cute stamp set, and can be colored quickly; something that's important if you are making multiples!

Swapping cards and 3D items is one of the delightful things that demonstrators do at Stampin' Up! events. It's an excellent way to get new ideas to share with our stamping friends.....the creative geniuses out there are amazing!

And I've had SO. MUCH. FUN! 

But now I'm really going to miss seeing my old stamping friends, as well as the new friends that I've made here. *sniff* It was so awesome getting to meet people from all around the world!

Being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator has brought so many blessings that I had never even anticipated when I decided to take the plunge. To be perfectly honest, I only joined so I could get the discount on the products that I wanted. I never dreamed that a) I had so much creativity in me, and b) that I would make so many new friends sharing that creativity. I really only planned to use the discount until I had everything I "needed."

But somehow, along the way, more and more people wanted to get together to stamp, and they started placing orders, and then I started a monthly stamp club, and slowly my hobby turned into a little self-supporting business. Yes, I don't spend any household money on my addiction hobby anymore!

If you've ever wondered about what it takes, I'd be happy to share my experience with you. No pressure, just facts and answering your questions!
