Today is my Stampin’ Up! Anniversary and it was 15 years ago that I joined!
I’m going to get a little wordy today … so forgive me in advance!!
For those of you that are just joining in…here’s my story… I only joined to get the discount because I wanted EVERYTHING in the Stampin’ Up! Catalog!!
That’s why I always encourage hobby demos to join my team!! I’m not saying I don’t want to recruit business demonstrators because I do!!! But, I also know that I joined only for the discount and look what happened. You can never count anyone out!
With all that being said…. being a business demonstrator is WORK. But it’s work I LOVE!
Recently I took on the task of helping my daughter Brooke build a blog and start a home based business and what I always come back to is… do you love it? If not, move on and find something you do! I’ve also learned that Brooke is like many of the people I’ve trained, she doesn’t want to put anything out until it’s perfect. OMG … it will never be perfect, just do it and improve it when you can. I have failed at more things than I’ve succeeded, but it’s worth it because I’m doing what I love!
Here’s a quote from Steve Jobs (October 4th, 2016)
“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle.”
Here’s my story…

Painted Harvest Tutorial – 4 card tutorials Free with any order in October!
The Bella & Friends Halloween Box is the 10th project for the 12 Weeks of Halloween 2017.
I made it using Basic Black card stock … and the Pick a Pattern Designer Series Paper (featured in our annual Stampin’ Up! Catalog).
The cute little puppy is Miss Bella and she’s in the Bella & Friends Stamp Set and the greeting and bird/raven is from the Season to Sparkle Stamp Set.
I used the Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends to color Miss Bella, I used the Dark Smoky Slate to outline her and then colored her in with the Light Smoky Slate. Next I used the Color Lifter to pull some of the color out (of the middle).
Don’t you love the little pop of Rich Razzleberry? I used the Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends Marker to color her collar and added a Brights Enamel Dot over the heart.
Speaking of Stampin’ Blends … mark your calendars for November 1st! You’re going to LOVE them!!
