Have you ever met someone that you just instantly liked a lot and knew you'd both really click as friends? That's happened to me several times in the past week. I've been in a flurry of activity in my studio all week --- preparing for and holding workshops and classes (the most I've ever had in one week) and yes, I'm tired, but so excited about the new people I've been meeting and the fun of scheduling their future workshops so we can have even more stampin' fun. I've seen people stamp who already had some experience at it and I've helped new people stamp for their first time. They all have a similar ritual when they finish their project. They hold it at arm's length and say (with a big smile on their face): "I really like this!" That's one of my greatest joys in being a demonstrator. We really mean it when we use the phrase: 'Love what you do. Share what you love.' If you've ever thought of becoming a demonstrator, September would be a great time to sign up. In addition to all the benefits you'd already be getting, Stampin' Up is offering a free craft tote (like mine:) in addition to all your starter kit. It's a great tote and holds a ton of goodies. I hold my downline meetings/opportunity events on the first Thursday of each month, so the next one is just around the corner. They're at 10:00 AM so just let me know if you'd like to join us or if you'd like to come but need a different time schedule.

Well, I told you I was finally getting back to stamping, but I didn't intend to neglect my blog. I truly have been having fun with all the new stamps, tools, and accessories from the new catalog. I will post some of my projects soon. In the meantime, the catalog party was a huge success and we had a ball! I can't believe how good people are at doing the limbo! Since the party, I've been swamped with prep for classes and workshops and have met some amazing new people. All is well and all is fun, fun, fun.
