Can I scream out how excited I am!?! 🤪During this past week as my helpers and I prepped and packaged 56 sets of product shares (finishing them up a full week ahead of schedule!), I watched my points get closer and closer. And as of yesterday around noon, just hours after setting out the completed shares for USPS to pick up, it became official… I earned my 14th Stampin’ Up!® incentive trip!!!
Timmy, we’re going to Maui!!!
I haven’t even finalized the reservations for my July 2019 Greek Isles incentive trip that my sister is attending with me. So I’m sure you believe me when I tell you I was jumping up and down for joy to have earned this trip in just 3 months & 11 days (a little over 8-1/2 months early!).
I REALLY LOVE being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator. Thank you to ALL of you who support what I do in some way…A huge thanks to my Stampers With ART stars, my customers, my club members, my fellow demonstrator friends, Stampin’ Up! employees, my business partners, my assistants, my social media followers/subscribers, and my dear friends and family.
I’ve been working non-stop this past week getting those shares ready. I expedited the products from Stampin’ Up!, had 2 assistants (Patty and Vicki) helping me on 4 different days, AND roped in my husband (the one I call Timmy when I’m excited and happy) and my boys (Nick and Luke) to help me put everything in the boxes and envelopes on Thursday night. So finding out that next day that I earned Maui was a fabulous way to celebrate the completion of the shares.
This is what those packages (84 pounds worth!) waiting for my postal carrier to pick up looked like.
My upline, Susan Campfield is just one of the many supportive people in my life. She is one of my biggest cheerleaders, and I’m so grateful I purchased the Stampin’ Up!® Starter Kit through her 19 years ago.
Just recently she gave me this pretty card featuring the Lovely Floral embossing folder and new products from the Gingham Gala Suite: the Butterfly Gala stamp set, the Gingham Gala designer paper, and the Highland Heather Organdy Ribbon from the Organdy Ribbon Sale-a-Bration Combo Pack. (A brief supply list is below.)
I want to say she sent it to me along with some die-cut pieces that didn’t have and needed. Yes,…I needed product and SHE sent ME a card. It’s supposed to be reversed. In fact, I think I still need to send her a thank you card!
She is very good to me. Isn’t this card precious?
Before I sign off, I want to share some Paper Pumpkin news.
The January kits shipped out yesterday. Yay!! We should be getting them soon. But already Stampin’ Up! is sharing some hints about the February kit that will ship next month. Watch this video to see what is in store.
We are off to celebrate Christmas with my husband’s side of the family this weekend! I’ll touch base again on Monday morning when I share a fun card that I created with the new Classic Garage suite. Have a great weekend!
