Today is a major Milestone Anniversary for me. It is the 25th anniversary of the day that change my life in so many ways.
It is the day I decided to purchase the Starter Kit for over $400. Yes you read right. When I purchased the Stampin' Up! Starter there were two kits one was around $200 the other $400. I didn't get to choose the product in my kit, it was a set kit. But I wanted it all, and I didn't want to pay full price. This was at the time Stampin' Up! wasn't even an exclusive company.
I truly signed up for one reason, discount. You see Jay & I owned a hardware store where I worked 60 hours a week. I did not need another job. I was treasurer and very involved in our church, but I loved everything about stamping.
I remember asking Jay years later, what did you think when I asked to sign up as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, he said I thought it was another passing craft phase of yours.
Well 25 years later, stamping is so much more than a crafting phase it's my family. When I purchased the Starter Kit a whole new world opened up for me. I worked in the hardware store, that I enjoyed very much, but I mainly talked with men all day about home repair. When I purchased the Starter Kit it allowed me to go out and talk with women and teach what I loved, stamping.
Did I work hard? You bet, doing what I had a passion for.
In honor of my Stampin' Up! Anniversary, I want to give you a gift. If you place a $50 or more order in my Online Store starting today through Tuesday, May 10th ,and use Hostess Code HUXSZEV2, I will send you the New 2022-2024 In Color Matte Dots, plus my Monthly Customer Appreciation Tutorial. If your order is $150 or more, do not use Hostess Code. You take advantage of Hostess Rewards, and I will still send you the Dots & Tutorial.
This is my way of saying THANK YOU for being part of my 25 year journey with Stampin' Up!, so memorable and rewarding.
