This post is a reflection on the past year and just a nifty note to all of you.
Every year I get the feeling of sadness when a Catalog year ends. So many Great memories, so many things that I didn't have time to show and now they retired. I always try to look at my goals and to see if I had made them. Unfortunately, I fell short of my Trip goals this year, and downline goals. Although 13 years is nothing to sneeze at. I am always harder on my self and will dig out of this rut right now. Why?-
Because Tomorrow is July 1st- A New Beginning. A New Catalog Year. A chance to Create Again. A new set of goals for the new year. A chance for me to earn a New Trip. I am already getting excited that a New Catalog is right on the Horizon. Yippee!!! The Excitement begins anew. The happiness that a stamp set or Big Shot Die was carried over, meaning I can use my favorites for one more year. I reflect on what I have done as a Demonstrator and a blogger.
I want to thank all of you that read my Blog and have been customers, both Online and at my Classes, Events, and Clubs. It is you who inspires me to do more every year, to be more creative, even more Crazy excited! I will be going to Convention this year (1st time in 7 years!!!) and I can't wait for the gathering of thousands of Demonstrators to Inspire me. (13 days and counting before my hundreds of trades have to be done. YES-I started!!!!). I LOVE being a Stampin' Up!® Demonstrator. It has in so many ways changed my life for the better. I did go to college for Graphic Arts and loved it. I did some commissioned art for people and then moved on and became a Police Officer. That was an Awesome moment in time as well. I chose to leave Law Enforcement after 13 years and really decided to do more with creating and stamping again. My Love for Stamping started in 6th grade and has only intensified as I have gotten older. The industry has grown, changed and become Amazing. The thing that I LOVE about Stampin' Up!® is that I can do anything with stamps. Anything. Stampin' Up!® has given me the right tools, stamps, coordinating Designer Series papers, inks, markers etc to help my imagination grow.
The New 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalog will inspire you too. It's Beautiful!! hope that in the upcoming months my blog will get you to do more with your stash of stamps, ink and paper. I plan on more tutorials and a few more videos, so Stay-Tuned my Stamping Fans.
So-if you need anything from this catalog before it is gone, just place an order before 11:30PM Central tonight. The New 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalog is available Friday, July 1st after 1PM Central.
See you tomorrow everyone!
