I joined Stampin' Up! in April 2006 - the month they launched in Australia. I never imagined that ten years later I'd still be with the company and blessed by the many friends I have made through Stampin' Up!
I initially joined thinking I'd struggle to meet minimums! One workshop later I'd made the quarterly minimum and there was no looking back! I was an active demonstrator until 2011 when I was offered a job back as a primary school teacher. It was a tough decision on whether to stay as a demonstrator purchasing just for myself or to stand down.
After lots of thoughts and a phone call from the lovely Pam Morgan at Stampin' Up! Head Office, I decided to stay and I am so glad I did. Now that my boys are older (even older than this 2 year old photo from a holiday to the UK!) I am starting to pick up my business in my free time.
I haven't got back into running workshops yet but I've started back my monthly stamp night and hope to start holding monthly classes soon. I'm still taking orders (click Shop Now) through my online shop or by email. There are 106 demonstrators in my team spread all around Australia. They vary from those just purchasing for themselves to demonstrators running as a full time business.
