I'm taking part in a program through Stampin Up that, for me, is really making me think about why I signed up to be a Demonstrator and why I stay. As I thought about my reasons, I created the design below in My Digital Studio as a visual to help me remember my goals. So, what is my why? My Why is two-fold. I originally signed up to be a demonstrator to save some money on the products I already loved. (I'll be posting My Story for your enjoyment in the next day or so) I honestly didn't believe I'd ever make any money at it. Now, while I can't give up my "day job" to be a full-time stampin' queen (yet!), I am proud to say that this little savings plan of mine is actually helping around our home. For example, my sales in June enabled me to buy my son his first big-boy bicycle for his birthday. So that's my first why....to be able to help my family (while still supporting this habbit - I mean hobby - of mine.
My second Why is the friendships I have built in my short six months as a Demonstrator. My Upline and Sidelines have become some of my dearest friends, even though we live thousands of miles apart. My customers and club members have become friends, and the ones that were my friends before have become my Stampin' family. I love the time I get to spend with them each month and love getting to share my love of stamping, scrapping and crafting.
These are the reasons I do what I do, and why I love it. Thank you for letting me share with you. I hope you find inspiration everywhere you turn! Now, go get inky!
