It’s been 10 Years!!

This is how long I've been a demonstrator….I was trying to find a picture of me at my first convention–my sister (who was a demonstrator with me back then) but then I realized that I had a FILM camera for my first convention…you know..the kind you had to develop!!  How crazy is that?  Luckily things have changed because I usually take upwards of 1000 pictures when I go now!! 🙂

Here is one from 2005–that is me and Beate…some of you may know her…she is a fellow demonstrator and an amazing artist!!  It feels liket that picture was taken just yesterday…

_1013152 How fun!

IMG_2377 This picture was from Leadership last month–these are some of my demonstrator friends with me!!  From Left to right is Kimberly, Me, Lisa, and Maxine.

I think I've really come a LONG, LONG way since I started Stampin Up–I actually never intended to do much with it…I started when Andy was in Grad School and I was teaching Biology in California.  I LOVED stamping and so I thought I'd just do one or two parties before I quit…well,……10 years later I've earned 4 cruises, been a top demonstrator in our company and have met countless friends and built a thriving business!!  What a dream?!

Now, in honor of this momentus occasion, I have a couple of specials–these will be available THIS WEEK ONLY and only through me! 

Dena's 10th Anniversary Special

Printed Paper Special:

Don't you love all the new papers?  There are actually 16 new packages available–with 125 different sheets…that is a lot of paper (and a lot of $$ to get them all).  So, I am offering a special where you can have a sample of every single paper (125 sheets)  You even can choose between 2 different sizes…

12×6" pieces are $50 (includes tax and shipping)  $50 or 6×6" sheets $25 (includes tax and shipping) You will recieve one sheet of each of the following paper packs:

And have you noticed all the amazing new brads and buttons we have?  There are tons–but it is a lot of money to put out to get them all, so why not get a taste of everything by getting a brad and button sampler from me.  You will get the following:

All you need to do is contact me with the item(s) you wish to order and the size of paper if you order a paper split that you'd like.  If you plan on using a credit card for your purchase, please let me know at the time of your order so I can enter it when the items are all ordered. please e-mail me to join in the fun!

Finally, thank you…to each of you who have helped me make this the most amazing (and unexpected) career that I ever could have dreamed of!

Most sincerely,
