Going Above & Beyond…

If there is one thing that Stampin’ Up knows how to do, it is to spoil it’s top achievers! This company knows how to put together an incentive trip and is the absolute best at pulling off all those little details. Anyway, I wanted to share some more photos from my trip to Thailand courtesy of Stampin’ Up. From the moment we arrive, we are treated like royalty. Stampin’ Up rented the entire Angsana Laguna resort for us (so only Stampin’ Up families and staff were on site)! Here are some photos from the resort: First we were welcomed with our name on our door. It’s really fun to walk down the hallway and find all the names of my fellow achievers and friends! This was the view from our balcony This was our room This was outside one of the restaurants (Baan Talay) I loved all these adorable little lanterns. They were really beautiful when it was all lit up at night. The entire resort was set in the middle of a lagoon, so there were fun little “rivers” and bridges throughout the resort. Here’s one of the cute bridges. The resort was huge! We were still discovering new

Reflecting on 11 Years with Stampin’ Up!

It’s so hard to believe this, but I’ve been a Stampin’ Up demonstrator for 11 years! I could not have imagined how much my life would have been impacted over a decade ago when I first filled out the paperwork. I was reading the back story of the newest Million Dollar Achiever in our company (they’ve sold a million dollars worth of product since they first started as a demonstrator) and it made me want to go back and re-read some of the other achiever’s stories. It’s amazing how many different reasons there are for joining, and all the different ways each of these demonstrators have been successful. But what stood out in almost every story I read (there have been 18 demonstrators worldwide that have reached this milestone) is that each person identified the relationships they had formed as one of the most treasured parts of their journey. I can totally relate to that. I have over 650 friends on Facebook. I don’t say that to brag. I’m just illustrating a point. Without actually going in there to count, I would be willing to bet that well over half of those people are beautiful souls I met over stamping.

Chaos…

Someday I will become this super organized, non-procrastinating, always on top of the ball, plan ahead type of gal. But not today. Not this week. Not this month! Now don’t get me wrong… I am super excited to have been so busy for the month of March — I am well on track of making March 2010 the best month of my entire four years as a SU demonstrator… but let me tell you being busy makes me messy! lol! This is my desk top right now. It is filled with card samples to be made, kits to be packed for workshops, clubs and events and who knows what else is under that pile! I also need to go to the dump. This is the pile of Stampin’ Up boxes from the past couple of weeks… that’s a lot of orders… and I’m expecting more this week and probably a few more in the last couple of weeks in March, too. I am truly blessed to have such a growing business in a time when many other business owners are struggling. Of course, those of you that are regular customers of mine know Sale-A-Bration has been a wonderful boost to
