Flash forward a few more months and a member of my Bible study invited me to a Stampin Up workshop, and to be truthful I hadn't ever heard of Stampin UP and wasn't even sure I wanted to stamp, but it was a night out with the girls and my hubby had it off so could take care of our daughter, so I was SO there! I remember that first workshop well, the demonstrator demonstrated some techniques (emboss resist really impressed me) and then led us through a make and take and I learned that I could create a card in a few minutes (rather than a scrapbook page that took me a few hours). I was hooked...I could now find new ways to create with smaller bits of time that I had! I booked my first workshop that night...and after that I joined a monthly Stampin' Club and then ultimately about a year and a half ago became a demonstrator myself...and guess who my upline is? ...that's right that first demonstrator at my first workshop (Shawna, you still inspire me!)
As a demonstrator I have an excuse to create all the time, and I'm so thankful that I get to share it all with you. Who knows what I would have done if I hadn't been introduced to Stampin UP, but one thing is for sure, I know my life is enriched for the fact that I was...so a BIG happy 10th anniversary to Stampin' Up in CANADA...I'm so glad you came!!:)
**Just a reminder that I will be placing an order on Saturday (Apr 21st) after my Summer Smooches workshop, so be sure to contact me if you have anything you want to order, and don't forget, the summer smooches preview items are only available until April 30th AND see my previous post for the link to the retiring stamps list...those stampsets are only available until May 31st!
