Hello my blogging friends. It has been a busy month for me. I don’t know if you know, but I am a demonstrator for a company called Stampin’ Up!. I teach people how to create their own greeting cards and scrapbook their memories with stamps. April 3, 2016 marked 15 years as being a demonstrator. And on June 1, 2016 I reached $200,000.00 in career sales. It may not mean anything to most, but for me, these are 2 goals that I wanted to meet, and I did. And within months of each other. And June 1, 2016 was the launch of the new Stampin’ Up! catalog, so I have been busy making new samples and planning a New Catalog Open House which I had on Saturday.
The Open House went well and everyone that attended had a great time seeing new products, creating a couple of cards using new products and getting freebies. Now I can get back to a normal kind of routine 🙂 I also had another exciting thing happen this month. On June 1, I received an email from a company called Stamp N Storage that my new craft room photos had won May Studio Showcase! I won $75 which I chose as store credit because there are 2 more storage items that I want for my craft room. You can read about my craft room win and see phots here. I LOVE their storage units. My room looks a little different even now, because I keep moving and adding things to better suit my stuff, LOL. Once I get the last 2 items I will take a couple of more photos for you. Hopefully that will be the end of rearranging. I am having fun creating in my new space. It is my own little piece of happiness 🙂
I have been so busy, and I had 2 little vacations in the middle of everything, that I haven’t been able to do much stitching. During vacation time I didn’t stitch at all! Seven straight days with no stitching. I thought I was going to lose my mind! This last week I finally had some time to stitch a couple of nights. But I was only able to put in 12-25 stitches before my eyes drooped too far to see anymore. But here is how I left Aphrodite last night (my best stitching day in a long time 🙂
Not a whole lot more added since my last post about her, but every stitch counts, right? I am hoping to stitch a lot more this week. So sorry I have been out of touch, but what have you been working on lately? I’d love to see 🙂
