Special blog candy for my Stampin'Up! anniversary!


Hello there blog friends and HAPPY MONDAY! Today, November 10th, is my 14th anniversary as a Stampin'Up Demonstrator!  Can you believe it?!  To share in the celebration and as a thanks to you all for being a part of my crafting world, I am giving away a Stampin'Up! Holiday Home photopolymer stamp set.  One lucky person will be picked at random. All you have to do is leave me a comment by Sunday, November 30 at midnight Pacific Time. You can leave me a comment about anything, or you can tell me what your all time favorite Stampin'Up! Stamp Set is! I'll announce the lucky winner on Monday, December 1st.

I'm so glad to be celebrating this anniversary. It's a testament to my commitment to Stampin'Up! and my love for stamping and paper crafting.  As many of you know, I work full time and I'm more of a passionate "hobby demonstrator" that enjoys the craft and sharing my experience with others.  What I do love about this company is that I'm able to make my business fit my needs.  There are times when I've throttled it up, but in more recent times, have had to take it down a notch in order to keep a balance with family and my day job commitments.  In every case, I've still enjoyed the benefits of being a demonstrator and all the comraderie that I've experienced with fellow demonstrators and customers who also have a love of the craft. I've got great downline demonstrators as well, that I am so glad to be part of my team.

I thank you all for coming to visit with me and also getting the chance to know some of you.  It's through our mutual appreciation of all things paper crafting that I think allows for us to feel like we know each other and it's a really nice feeling.  I know that my blogging hasn't been the most consistent, but I do enjoy sharing with you all and hearing back from you on occasions, too!

I think I'm in a good place to have more regular postings to share with you all, so I hope you continue to come and visit.  As you'll see in upcoming posts, my craft room transformation has had a lot to do with my ability to craft again. IE, I've cleaned it up so that I can actually DO some crafting :)  There are also lots of things to celebrate in the holiday season, so I definitely want to pop in and share ideas on that front, too!

I look forward to reading your comments and am excited to be giving this fun stamp set away to a lucky winner!

Congrats on your anniversary! What a nice gift to celebrate! I think I would have a hard time narrowing down my favorite stamp set, as it changes all the time. I do love Itty Bitty Backgrounds, though! Fun little splatters! I wish you lots of success in the next ten years!

I recently came back to SU after a bit of a holiday. I'm soooooo thrilled that they are now starting to sell photopolymer sets!!!!!!!!!! I'm only adding those to my collection, so I look forward to the day that they make all their designs available in that format :)

Thanks for offering such scrumptious blog candy and congrats on your 14th anniversary with SU. My all-time favorite SU stamp set is "Heard from the Heart." I love the font and the phrases can be used for so many different occasions.

Congratulations on your Anniversary. I am not a demonstrator but have been buying SU since '99 and I LOVE their products. My craft room is full and has been transformed MANY times so I know what you mean. I have many favorites so I really couldn't name one but I too am getting more and more into the photopolymer.
