As my third anniversary with SU! approaches, I have been reflecting on my business. Where did I start? Where am I now? And what do I want in the future?
When I first started with SU! (thanks Teresa and Kris) I had no idea what it would bring. Maybe a little cash, some new stamps, a few outings here and there (that alone was a mother of two children under 2's dream). In all honesty I was expecting to make a few sales and play with my new “stamp kit”. Little did I know what was in store for me. I LOVE this company. Around month 7, I was featured in my local newspaper as a new business. Three months later I received a phone call from a lady who saw my article, who clipped it out and who sent it to her son who worked in Kanab (at the SU! warehouse). I was thinking WHAT are the odds?!!!! Especially in my little town in the SE corner of
So you are probably thinking…wow this girl just wants to brag right? Well I do, but that is not why I am writing this today…I am writing to tell you that the most incredible part about being a demo is meeting the people. I have developed some of the BEST relationships with my customers. In fact, some of my fav times as a demo are meeting with my stampin’ girls! It is amazing how you bond with people when you meet with them every month for 10+ months. I enjoy watching friendships form not only among the club members but also with me. And wouldn’t you know my dream comes true when they join my Canada STAMPS team (thanks girls).
Today’s projects are dedicated to the people! All the demos in my life, the customers I have met, my wonderful downline…and to my husband and children who have to deal with mum’s crazy stampin’ antics—and countless hours in the stamp room prepping for classes and workshops etc. Thank you all!!!!

I decided to share some of my calendar pages from a class I held late last year to keep you thinking about the year ahead. It’s never too late to become a demonstrator. The timing is especially great if you already have a ton of supplies. A full demo kit is only $275 or a new mini starter kit is $137. How great is that? Please visit my SU! website or the SU! website to find out how you too can become a demonstrator. If you are already a SU! demonstrator, please leave me a comment and tell me why YOU love being a demo!!!!! I look forward to reading it.
P.S. Shannon, I hope your morning coffee and blog read feels more complete today. After our S10 last night I diligently sat here and put together my blog until the wee hours of the morning just so you could read it when you woke up.
