So Grateful For You!

This post is all about YOU - thank you for making my Stampin' Up! business a success for another year. I have said it before, and I'll say it again, I have the best clients, friends and team members in the world and I am so very appreciative for each of you.

Yesterday ended the Stampin' Up! fiscal year and I'd like to share a few of the highlights that happened for me and my family because of YOU and Stampin' Up!

My car was paid off!

Mark and I were able to travel to Hawaii - all expenses paid!

Emma's team skating expenses were paid!

I was honored to be named in the Top 100 Demonstrators in the US!

I was also honored to be in the Top 10 in Recruiting in the US!

We, as a family, will be on the Southern Caribbean Cruise next May - all expenses paid!

Most importantly, I was once again able to put my family first and still be able to provide an income. Many times, especially over the last year, Mark and I have discussed me going back to "work" outside our home. But we feel that 'home' is where God wants me to be and He has so faithfully provided for us through YOU and my Stampin' Up! business. I truly love what I do, but what I love the most is the relationships that have been built because of stamping. Most of you I never would have met without the connection of a little rubber stamp. The bond of shared creativity, laughter and chocolate is wonderful and I am so happy to have you in my life!

So, now we have a NEW year to look forward to - new creations, new fun and new goals. Happy NEW YEAR everyone! I am excited to continue to serve you as your Stampin' Up! demonstrator and friend. Let's make it an amazing year, shall we?
