Yes, it's SO true!
The best things in life AREN'T things at all.
And one of the best ways to remember the things that matter most is to scrapbook your memories.
Scrapbooking was my introduction to stamping - not the other way around. I was planning ahead for a new baby when I was introduced to the Stampin' Up! catalog by a friend. Well, after placing a substantial order - from just the catalog - for the things I'd need to start scrapbooking my baby's firsts, I soon hosted a stampin' party.
And well, I guess you can figure out the rest - I was hooked!
My association with Stampin' Up! through the years has been truly wonderful. My "baby" is now 15 years old and I've been a Stampin' Up! demonstrator for 7 1/2 years.
Yeah, it took me a while to take the plunge and sign up with the company. NOT that I didn't SHOP extensively when I wasn't a demonstrator! LOL!
Oh, if I could have earned my demonstrator discount on ALL those purchases - well, guess I shouldn't dwell on that, huh?
What's great now is that I'm able to earn an income that pays our monthly car payment, pays for Emma's skating - which is like buying a new compact car each year! For real.
And I do get a great discount on what I love to shop for most - besides shoes that is!
But you wanna know what the best things are about being part of the Stampin' Up! family? Maybe I should show you:
The best things are the people - my friends. Special people who would have NO place in my life at all but for this amazing craft that we ALL LOVE that brings us together.
And these few photos are just the tip of the iceberg - I could do 50 collages of the special people and friendships and it still wouldn't give a true representation of how awesome being part of this big family of stampers is for me.
What's even better is that ANYONE can choose to be part of our great big family!
Yes, that could even be you.
What does it take?
Well, you need $99 and a desire to have fun.
Oh, and you can have fun AND make $$ at the same time.
The two aren't mutually exclusive.
It's working for me - remember the car payment? Yep. I make it every month like clockwork along with paying those skating bills.
And I get the friendships.
And I get to earn amazing vacations - for TWO! (Ahem. Fiji next month. Yep, it's true. Do you think I could afford to go there on my hubby's cop salary? Um, no.)
And I get rewards of FREE product from Stampin' Up! - just for um, doing my job.
When I was a cop, I really didn't get the toaster for writing enough tickets. Yeah, that's just a myth.
I got a paycheck and a pat on the back once in a while, but that's about the extent of it.
Now, I get to work from home. At my pace. MY schedule. No shift work. No working holidays. I get to be the Mom that's home for my daughter at the end of her day. I get to travel to ALL of her skating competitions - and not miss work or use up all my vacation time to do it.
Oh, I could go on - but I think you get the picture.
I have been blessed beyond measure by Stampin' Up! I'd love for you to experience those blessings for yourself - how could it make your life better?
Just think about it.
$99 will always be enough to purchase your Demonstrator Starter Kit. That's the deal - and you always get $125 in products that you choose.
BUT, through midnight tonight, you get a bonus. You get $156.00 in products for that $99 investment in your future.
I'm gonna quit talking now and let you think it over.
