Creative Inking Blog Hop - What Goes A Round

Blog hop

It's time for another Creative Inking Blog Hop with a theme this month of What Goes A Round.  I could think of no better product to share for this hop with so many circle, then the Eastern Palace Suite Bundle.  The framelits in this bundle create so many circles.  Did you see my post with a sample of what you can do with this amazing bundle of framelits?  Here is the link to that post and a quick review below.  You can check other examples on the link.

#easternpalacetemp5 #lindabauwin

These Framelits lay together to make some pretty cool designs, with a lot of them being circles. They are part of Stampin' Up! Promotion this month featuring a sneak peak of new product from the new SU! Catalog at a discount.  If you miss the details about this great promotion you can learn about it by clicking here.

Here is the card I designed from these thinlits using the beautiful New In Color Berry Burst.

 

#creativeinkingbloghop #lindabauwin

So I love this bright New In Color.  Check out the 1/2" Fine Woven Ribbon and the In Color Bitty Bows in the same color.  Love these felt bows already pre-tied with an adhesive dot on the back, in the five New In Colors.   You can get your hands on all this New In Color Product come June 1st.  But if you decide to sign up as a demonstrator now, you can get this beautiful new product in your kit.

What are you waiting for?  Join the fun.

I Hope You Will Celebrate With Me

Hard to believe BUT . . .

#20thanniversary #lindabauwin
It is 2o years this May, May 5th to be exact, that I made a decision that changed the course of my life so differently. That decision was to sign up as a demonstrator.  

Because of that decision Jay & I were able to travel to many places that we only could dream about, something I am so grateful for.  I have made friends from all over the world.  And I came to realize I could set any goal I wanted, and could achieve it just by sharing what I love stamping.

So it's time to celebrate!!!  And that we will do the whole month of May.  great News Stampin' Up! will help with that celebration.  They have two special bundles you can order on Monday.  So you want to come back on Monday to see what I am offering during this month of Celebration and the new bundles.

First I wanted to share what was going on in my life in 1997 when I signed up.

  • Jay and I owned a hardware store that I worked in 60 hours a week
  • I knew lots about plumbing, electrical and home repair, nothing about stamping
  • I didn't like direct sales parties
  • Didn't know much about computers
  • Didn't know what a cellphone, blog, YouTube or Facebook was
  • And definitely didn't like to talk in front of people

That all changed when I picked up a business card in a craft store.  What was this stamping all about?  What I had to buy a catalog?  Or have a home party to see what it was about?  No not me?  

Months past before I finally agreed to a home party, and well can we say the rest is history.  My dear friend and neighbor Tracy Spangler said "I will help you we can buy a $100 a month" (the minimum at that time).  So told Jay I wanted to try it for 3 months to get my stuff at a discount.

Well it wasn't long before I wanted more and didn't want to spend it out of our family budget.  So Hardware Lady by Day, Stamp Lady by Night.  I truly loved what I was doing.

I was going out and having "women" talk, instead of how to fix a toilet or replace a light switch.  It brought excitement as I reached for goals.

And the real joy was when Jay decided to follow the stamping dream with me.  Will never forget when he said "You have followed my dream (the hardware store) for 24 years now it is time for me to follow your dream".  Follow he did in fact he loved stamping as much as I did, as he followed me to conventions, leaderships, and incentive trips.

Has the last 20 years been an easy road?  No

Have I wanted to quit at times?  Of Course

Would I change what I do?  No

Since Jays' passing 20 months ago,  Stampin' Up! has filled an even bigger void that I am so grateful for.  I could never imagine getting through the difficult months lately with out all the friends I have made from being a demonstrator.

I am so grateful for the members of my Stamp Family, other demonstrators, and of course all my customers who make each day such a blessing.  

So check back on Monday as we start our month of celebration.

Sharing The Excitement

#OnStage2017 #linda Bawuin

There are no words to explain a Stampin' Up! Event, when you meet up with hundreds of other Stampin' Up! Demonstrators to view the New Catalog and Upcoming New Product.  I was so blessed to be asked by Sherrie Robinson of Bowling Green, Ohio to take a road trip with her to Richmond Virginia.

Sherrie also invited Karie Beglau from Farmington Hills, Michigan to join us.  Sherrie and I have been friends for years, but I didn't personally know Karie.  Well we had lots of bonding moments on our trip.  I will never forget all the laughs and crazy moments.

#onstage2017 #maryrodgerslindabauwin

I was joined by two members of my Stamp Family Mary Rodgers from Rochester, New York and Deborah Makowski also from Rochester.  Was so excited to get to know these ladies a little better, and to celebrate Mary's Milestone $200,00 in personal sales, way to go Mary.

There is always so much excited at a Stampin' Up!  Especially when a New Catalog with New Product is reduced.  Unfortunately I can't show you the catalog yet as it is TOP SECRET!  Sherrie, Karie, and I spend hours pouring over it.  All I can say is buckle up.
