It's Wednesday and it's Whatever….I've been working on typing the directions for my Stamps By Mail and putting together my group meeting this week so I've been a Neglectful Stamper.  I really haven't spent anytime at my stamping desk so here's what I'm sharing with you today!  I was going to share a fabulous recipe and to toot my own horn.( Probably just squawk it as my mom always told me that Tooting your Own horn isn't so cool.)  but I've gotten wordy and I'll need to save the recipe for Orange Chicken for tomorrow.  I'm going to be chained to the desk again today and thus no new creations so I'll just save it for tomorrow and get on with the "tootin"

I realized late yesterday, that Feb 22nd was my Stampin' Up! Anniversary.  12 Years!  Can you believe it?  I signed up for the "discount" on product when I was expecting Denver.  Pregnancy brain, I always say.  It quickly became a passion and a part-time business.  It's been a lot of fun to watch the stamping styles change and many things stay constant.  My very first stamp pads (I still have them) were Mellow Moss, Old Olive, Lovely Lilac and Almost Amethyst and Barely Banana.  I needed them to duplicate the demonstrator and my soon-to-be future upline, Connie Tumm's, DD Hydrangea card, exactly!.  I still LOVE those colors and we've moved to a place where I can plant my own hydrangeas.  One of my very first sets was Betsy Beekeeper, little did I know I would eventually become Sarah, the Beekeeper.   Betsy The resemblance is uncanny!

It's been a fabulous ride and God, willing, I have no plans of changing directions.  And here's the pretty exciting part of the whole thing.  Stampin' Up! offers career incentives.  We have the yearly goals of the cruise etc but a career milestone is an accumulation of sales over the course of your time with Stampin' Up and the reward is a cash bonus depending on the milestone.

Stampers, I'm sooo close to a Half Million in Career Sales!  I thought I'd let you in on my BIG news.  I'm only about $4000 away from the goal.  Who'd a thunk that a would be my portion when I signed up with Stampin' Up! for the discount.  Become a Demo?  Give it a thought…give it a try.  You have nothing to lose and an entire Stampin' UP! world to gain!  Give me a call with any questions or sign up here.  My secret password (recruiter id) is SARAHS31. 

All for today, got to get the kids to school and back to the typing table.  🙂
