2. the converted/or never were SU : you are not going to change their minds, NMW.
3. the rest of us: hobby demos, customers, stampers.

My biggest complaint about all of this dialogue is that I have given this ANY thought at all. I stamp to relax, to unwind. I became a hobby demo, like many, for the discount. and now to have spent any time/stress worrying about this annoys me. that will probably be the biggest deciding factor. There are so many companies out there with fabulous products that we all want to try!! Who wants to put blinders on????
Who said you had to?

Everyone knows I love rubber, in every way shape and form it comes in. I have...cough...SOME other companies' products in my stamping room ...okay, okay, I have a LOT of other companies' products in my stamping room! Stampin' Up! is not making me take all that to the dump. SU! is not making me stop using it, or even stop displaying projects I make with it on my blog. They just don't want me to tell people where to buy it, with a link to a webstore to make it easier. Can people ask me who made it? Certainly and I can even answer them.

Personally, I don't have a problem with the new IDA. I am sad for my friends who are on DTs who now have to choose and if I were on a DT I would also be making the choice. But I haven't done design team work in over a year, so my choice was fairly simple.

I know there has been a lot of rumors floating around as to what this all means. I hope people don't get their undies all in a bunch over this and will continue to buy the rubber they like and use the products they like and share them with everyone they want to. And demos still can do that...there are just rules about how you can do it.
