I am very grateful to be a part of stampin' up! this month. I have been very appreciative of my friends and my mother over the last few months. We have had a lot of fun times stamping and enjoying each other's company. Even while having fun, one of my friends and my mother signed up with Stampin' Up! during that great promotion a few months ago. My mother really impressed me with her organized mind and creative use of designs. I can just imagine how she will help inspire people. My friend who joined was very busy with work functions - which is a good thing about stampin up - you only do it when you feel the muse :)
As I had the good fortune to have two people choose me as their upline and as my friends supported me with great class attendance, I was able to reach my consistent sales goals through Stampin' Start. Stampin' start is a program designed to help new demonstrators grow their business. For every recruit that joins stampin up under you, you earn a stamp set. For achieving consistent sales of $300, you earn a free stamp set. I wasn't planning on achieving much- I wasn't able to do much of anything last month with my femoral nerve thing kicking up. But from my past achievements, stampin up allowed me to choose 4 free stamp sets!
It came at a time when I was feeling a little down with my health issues. I was inspired to pull out my stamps while my new ones were en route - and I created fifteen new cards! Something about being recognized makes me feel good.
Here are the stamp sets that I chose to receive for free:
