Stampin’ Up! Updates…and More with Mom

Sunday was a big day at  The video debut of Mary King (I call her Mom) generated a tremendous number of emails, Facebook messages and blog comments.  What an amazing response!  If you missed her great video (the videography was pretty incredible, too!), you can see it here.

I told you yesterday that Mom’s head was big on Sunday – she was so proud of her video and was excited by all the comments.  Well, that continued through to yesterday when she was able to share her video with all her friends back home (not sure why they aren’t already watching every day, but…)  Anyway, I was thrilled to share her with you and thrilled for her.  You asked for more videos – but what you didn’t know was that Mom had already recorded another segment (I suppose she was already anticipating her rise to fame).  I’m going to share that with you today, but we have a couple of other things to take care of first.

A Look Back.  You love Mom – but not as much as I do.  With the success of Sunday’s video, I thought it was a good time to share this blooper’s real from a Christmas card video I was trying to film a couple of years ago.  Mom kept giggling, so we barely got through this simple introduction:

Mom’s New Video.  Immediately after we finished Mom’s tutorial video, she asked me to record her making “a statement.”  This was before her video aired, y’all!  Y’all demanded, “more, more” and loved her super-cute selling skills.  This video was recorded before the feedback from Sunday.  Mom knew I’d been working hard toward my June 30 business goal (I’m almost there!) and wanted to make “a statement” for my blog readers and customers.  I had no idea what she was going to say, so you can hear me giggle a bit in this quick video.  Let the celebrity speak:

I think the woman is on to something there, don’t you agree?  🙂

Thanks for stopping by today!

  3. I love your Mum – I’d buy lots of products from her (you) if I was able (I live in the UK ) you should give her a regular video slot – I bet your sales would skyrocket!!!

  9. Aww, Mom is such a sweetie! And, that blooper reel cracked me up! Thanks for posting it. Everyone needs to start their day with a good cup of coffee and a good laugh!

  10. Making a video is hard. Your Mom is a naturally and seems like such a nice person. You should recruit her to your team! I love the part where she says she’ll have to buy if we don’t. What a great Mom!

  11. As a mom I know how we love to help out our children. As a result, I have a very impressive collection of stampin up products in my home. And yes, I would love to watch “regular” videos of Mom Mary on your site Brian. You could even call it Mary’s Many Marvelous Tips or something to that effect.

  12. Love the videos and we love your mom & you too! Keep it up Mary!!

  13. Yes, keep Mom coming…you need to find a way to get mom’s friends involved, too, in helping you and her with your sales goals!

    Love the “blooper” video …surely all your videos can’t be picture and dialogue perfect all the time!

  14. So I see that your Mom is your agent now- good choice! What wonderful fun- you two are adorable together!

  15. Mom is now a star, and also apparently has lots of Stamping’ Up!merchandise! thanks for sharing Mom with the world.

  16. What a great way to start me day, Love the blooper video. I think Mom needs to be a regular contributer to your blog.

  17. Oh my gosh Brian, this is the best video you have posted yet, not to take away anything from all of your other videos my dear but, having your mom asking for help so you can reach your goal is just precious. Thank you for showing that blooper video again, it always cracks me up, it’s a classic, it’s impossible not to LOL!!
    Keep bringing your sweet mom’s videos, it’s hard to resist helping you to reach your goal when she is sitting there asking, I know you know what I mean 😉

  18. MaryJo Marshall

    great blooper video…you had me laughing when you made your eyes so big!!! keep them coming!

  19. Hi Brian & Mary!

    You both are fabulous! I understand your statement Mary as one year I somehow ended up with 87 boxes of Girl Scout cookies! LOL My daughter reached her goal and I gained 10 lbs.

    I hope my relationship with my girls stays as strong as yours is with Brian. We all want happy, healthy children and when they have a good sense of humor and a bit of talent that is quite a bonus wouldn’t you say?

    Wishing you both a terrific Tuesday and keep up the good work. Can’t wait to see more of both of you. Hugs.

  20. Oh, my goodness! Your mom is just the cutest ever! I was out of town and missed her debut, but now I’m all caught up — just watched the 3 videos. What a great way to start my day! She must love playing in the fungeon while you’re at work — almost as much as when you’re there, of course. Thanks for sharing the Jingle Bells blooper — HYsterical!

  21. Cindie McDuffee

    That was absolutley priceless. Your Mom gave me the best morning laugh ever! (Sorry, B)
    Did ANYONE look at what was on sale first, or like me, go straight to the videos?????

  22. No one wants to disappoint their mom, I’m sure your sales goal will be in the bag! Much success to you Brian and your team! Mom’s are terrific!

  23. Love your blooper reel, Brian! Thanks for starting my day with a smile and a laugh!

  27. Selina Kilpatrick

    Thanks for the smiles this morning, your mom is great!

  28. I cannot even imagine how much fun it would be to be with the two of you together! My sister and I keep saying we’re taking a trip to GA to attend one of your workshops; hopefully, we can schedule a trip when your mom is there, too! Keep up the good work and good luck with your goal.

  29. I love both videos. Your Mom is one cute lady!

  30. I thoroughly enjoyed watching Mary’s video. Mary is a friend of mine in Charleston and we often spend time together. I have often told her how talented and funny Brian is, and I must tell you she is as well. I think she and Brian should form a partnership. Good job Brian for bringing her in on your passion.

  31. What a wonderful Mom! Thanks for sharing her with us! Can she come to ATL in October for World Card Making day? Mom King, if he doesn’t invite you, I will! ☺

  32. LOL…both are great videos! Your Mom is a sweetheart! Thanks for putting a big smile on my face this morning…hehehe!

  33. I was belly-laughing along with you while I was watching your Christmas card video. I can see that the apple did not fall far from the tree. Please don’t keep your Mom all to yourself; please share her with all of us. Looking forward to more Mom King and Brian videos.

  34. Your mother has the greatest smile. Her smile in that last frame of the video is the sweetest thing I’ve seen in a long while. Thanks for sharing her with us.
