Do you know my story?

I thought today I would share with you my Stampin' Story.  For everything there is a reason, so I thought I would share with you my reason for becoming a demonstrator with Stampin' Up.

I absolutely enjoy being a Stampin’ Up! independent demonstrator, and I am one of those rare people who love what they do and get to share what they love. Oh, and enjoy all the snazzy benefits that come along with it too (cheap or FREE paper crafting products, unlimited ideas, getting paid to play, etc.) Which is exactly why I signed up: The Discount Baby!

I married my high school sweetheart, Matt, in 2003 and 5 years later had our daughter, Emma, in 2008. So needless to say, I was very behind in my scrapbooking, by 5 years. I had a lot of catching up to do and didn't know where to start. So I found a random Stampin' Up consultant online and contacted her. I went to one of her events and booked a workshop because I wanted to get some free stuff (I love FREE stuff, but who doesn't right?)
I was in direct sales before for a popular kitchen gadget company that's not just for "chefs"..... (did you get it? hee hee) and was totally NOT interested in doing it again any time soon. But I fell in love with the products, loved the discounts, and I couldn't get over how little she brought with her to do her workshop! I was sold!!!!!!!

My original intention was to just be a "hobbiest" and purchase all my scrapping stuff from SU and sell to my friends and family, but I'm a teacher and thought this would be great income during the summer. So here I am, totally awestruck by how awesome this company is, and also how much I have been blessed (not just monetarily, but more so by the people I've met).

So this is my story. I hope it gave you a little insight into my world. Do you have a Stampin' Story you would like to share?  I would love to know why you love Stampin' Up! (prodcuts, people, ideas, etc.) and how it has blessed your life! Leave your comment below!!
