I have been overwhelmed by the positive responses I’ve received from my silly, little blog over the past 9 months. You’ve been so amazing and supportive, and I couldn’t be more grateful. At Leadership last week, I had dozens of demonstrators approach me to say, “I’ve seen your blog. I love that blooper video with your Mom!” (if you haven’t seen the single most memorable part of my blog, check it out here). This week, alone, you’ve showered with your kind words and sweet remarks for the cards I’ve posted. I couldn’t smile more. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again…paper crafters are the kindest group of people in the world. Just really nice folks. And I am proud to be a part of this group.
Today’s blog entry is a description of what I want to do my blog – I feel like it’s only fair that I share my thoughts with you since you are such an integral part of my journey.
I want you … to feel inspired each and every day – to think about stamping all day long. I want to poke your brain in the morning with some sort of idea or concept so that you have an excuse to think about cards and crafting for the entirety of your day.
I want you … to enjoy the time you spend with your stamps. I am fortunate enough to spend lots of time completing projects with my stamps, papers and punches. Possibly too much time. You might not have as much time, so I am happy to share what I learn or what inspires me. It helps you to streamline your projects, right?
I want you … to create things you love and can’t live without. It makes you happy. When you are happy, then I am happy. When I am happy, I remember to feed the cat. I guess what I am trying to say is – I want you to be feel good about what you create so that Bandit can enjoy his kibbles.
I want you … to enjoy your stamping space. Organizing is a hobby in itself. Over the next several weeks I’ll share several ideas I have implemented to keep my space as tidy as it can be.
I want you … to get the most out of your stamping purchases. I don’t ever want you to buy a stamp set (for example) that just sits on your shelf. There are thousands of ways you can use that stamp, and I want to inspire you to use it. I also want you to maximize the benefits you can receive from your purchases. I want you to be aware of the promotions and benefits so that you feel good about the items you’ve purchased.
I want you … to contact me. If you don’t have an active demonstrator, I would love to earn your business. With Sale-a-Bration just around the corner, I want to help you make the most out of Stampin’ Up!’s big time sales event. I’d love to walk you through the subscriptions to The Paper Pumpkin so you can enjoy that program starting in March. If you would like to be a part of my Stampin’ Up! team, I would love to talk with you about the benefits of joining now – for Stampin’ Up!’s 25th anniversary, the Starter Kit just got better. During Sale-a-Bration, you will get $156.25 worth of product in your $99 Starter Kit (that’s 25% more than before!) Even if you don’t intend to make a business out of your Starter Kit, it’s a great deal! I can always be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Woo hoo!
Thanks for stopping by my blog today! I appreciate it.
