Celebrating 12 years w StampinUp!

I signed up w the greatest company that I have been representing since January 30, 2002. I am celebrating my 12th year w StampinUp! today. I signed up just to get a discount on the products that I had loved 3 years prior to signing up. Well, I had an open house shortly after signing up.  That lead to my first party and my first set of customers. That first party I realized that God had big plans for me and it was to grow my business!  I have so many awesome customers that I am proud to call my girlfriends! For me its so much more to me than just making the sale at my events. I also make sure everyone sees my passion for what I still love to do after 12 years!

This was me 12 years ago!

Now I have a growing stampin team called D's Team USA. I chose that name because my downline is all over the USA! I am so excited to hear and read about their passion as they respresent StampinUp! as a business or more of a hobby like I started off! I am so proud of everyone of my 7 girls in my downline! Our team is about to grow more in the next few months during Sale A Bration and I am ready to see it grow and grow! I just want to be the best upline I can be for all of them! God is still blessing my business today w each new customer, recruit, business opportunities like getting into craft fairs, and meeting new friends local and online that share the passion we have for StampinUp!

Here i am last month at my second craft fair!
So, now that you read my celebration post I have a giveaway! Just leave me a comment today and your name is in my drawing for a fun product! I will announce the lucky winner tomorrow.

Congrats! What has changed the most in stamping and/or stampin up sine you joined? I think that when I started country looking stamps and bears where popular and now it's more hip and edgy.
