Cheers Way to Go!

As most of you know, I've been a demo for over 10 years.  And you could describe my business style as slow and steady for the course!  Even though I've wanted things to move quickly, they haven't.  I live in a small rural community, so it takes a little longer to accomplish things.
For instance earning the first incentive trip (Alaska Cruise), took me 9 years, getting to my $100,000 in career sales took me 7 years.  You get the picture, well I hit my $200,000 in career sales last month and today I got this really cool card from the President and COO of Stampin' Up!, Rich Jutkins.  Inside was a handwritten note, congratulating me and thanking me for my hardwork.  I just think that is way cool, so wanted to share the card.  Here's the card below:

Happy Mother's Day AND Happy Birthday to me!

So, this is a double whammy day for me, as its my birthday and Mother's Day!  Happy Mother's Day to all you loving caring woman out there who always put your families first.  Its such an amazing journey being a mom.  To hold my child in my arms and snuggle with her, ahhhhhhhhh the love.  God is truly good!

Because I love being a mom so much, please let me back up a day.  Our daughter, Sage, has been taking ballet lessons for the last 2 years.  And yesterday was her yearly ballet recital.  The ballet was "The Wizard of Oz".  Did you know that was a ballet??  Me neither :0)

Well, she was one of the snowflakes that woke up Dorothy and Toto from the evil poppies that made them fall asleep.  Here she is with Dorothy (Jennifer French).

And here's my snowflake with the Wicked Witch, who is also Sage's ballet teacher, Amy Lancaster.

And my snowflake just being beautiful!

Ok, thank you for letting me indulge my mommy side!  I love her so much!  Happy Mothers Day to me!!

And because its also my birthday, looky lou at this cute cute card, my friend Donna Marcil sent me!  Makes me want to go get a popsicle! 

Have a wonderful Sunday!

I've officially earned Hilton Head!!!

Good Evening All~!
Well, I've officially earned my hubby and I the trip Stampin' Up! is calling "The Getaway", to Hilton Head.  NOW, while I'm super grateful to each and everyone of you who have helped me get there.  I'm not stopping until I earn FIJI!  I have 2 months left and I think I can, I think I can!  I won't be able to go on both but that's ok with me.  I'd really like to earn Fiji as it will be Edwin's and my 20th anniversary year and wouldn't that be a kick to take him on!~

So if you are looking to stock up on some retiring accessories, feel free to go to my Stampin' Up! website, and place an order 24/7.  Remember retiring accessories are only good while supplies last.
But if you are looking to purchase some retiring stamp sets, well you can get those only until May 31, 2012.

Alright, if you've read this's a sneak peek of one of the new stamp sets that will be in the new Stampin' Up! catalog on June 1, 2012.  Its called Everything Eleanor.  I made it for a swap I'm in with my uplines SU! group.

I used Marina Mist and you can't see it very well in the picture but the flower has our self adhesive rhinestones in the middle of it.  VERY PRETTY!
