My Stampin' Up! Story

     I am going through a program with Stampin' Up! called, Recruit Crew Direct Your Success.  One of the things we are being encouraged to do is tell our Stampin' Up! story so I thought I would share mine here.
     I first became acquainted with SU! about 4 years ago.  I was attending a Women's Conference at Tulsa, when I came across a Stampin' Up! booth.  I was immediately excited about what I found, and that was before I even sat down and made the make-n-take.  I loooved making the make-n-take.  It was just a simple 3x3 card, but making it was so much fun!!!  She also had retired stamps for sell and clubs to sign up for.  The only problem was I don't live in the Tulsa area.  I live 2 1/2 hours away in another state.  That is a little too far to drive to attend a club, class or workshop.
     So I went home, but I didn't forget.  For two years I didn't forget, partly because I was receiving emails from the demo who had the booth that I visited.  All her emails told about exciting events she was holding, and I was jealous and sad that I couldn't attend.
     Finally, I did a search to see if I could find a local demonstrator, and lo and behold I did.  I left her a message late on a Saturday and she promptly called me the next day after church. AND SHE HAD A CLUB I COULD JOIN! WOOHOO!!  AND SHE WAS ONLY A 30 MINUTE DRIVE AWAY!!  WOOHOO AGAIN!!
     I began attending her once a month club and looooved it.  We made two different cards each month and placed a $15 order. (But really who can only place a $15 order with products as great as SU!'s?)  It wasn't long before I began thinking that I needed to become a demonstrator so I could start my own club in my own town of Mansfield.  I loved the club I was attending, but why not start my own?  So that is what I did.  I became a demonstrator in October of 2008 and have been hosting my own club since December of 2008. 
     I really enjoy being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator.  I love creating and coming up with projects for my group to make each month.  We have a great time laughing and creating.  If you live in the Mansfield, Arkansas area and would like to attend my club or one of my classes please email me at for more info.  I have a Christmas Stamp-A-Stack coming up in early September where we will make a stack of Christmas cards and decorate the envelopes to go with them.
     So that is my SU! story.  I am so happy that I made the decision to become a demonstrator.  I have made a ton of friends that I wouldn't have made otherwise.  I get a lot of help, support, and advice from other demonstrators, and the products are the best you can buy.
