Cool I did it! I joined Stampin Up as a Demo!!!

Eeks! Well, I've set up my website which may help drive some business but it's quite likely that I'll probably be a Hobby Demo for a while (while I am doing school part-time).

I'm looking forward to this new challenge as well as meeting new people! I'm terribly shy so this may be a good chance for me to step out of my comfort zone!

Good luck to you
I've been a demo (very small business to feed the hobby) for almost 5 years now and I don't regret it at all. PLUS you have this site, which has some of the best info out there.
HAVE FUN!

Congratulations! They seem to be a very supportive company and all of the demo's I've met are super gals! You're in good company.

And to think that 3 years ago I'd never heard of Stampin' Up.

Congrats on your fun new journey...I joined in 2002 just so I could attend the convention which was being held nearby that year. I had so much fun that I decided right then and there I would never miss a convention! Am finishing up odds and ends getting ready to leave for convention #8 on Tuesday so I guess I am keeping my goal! I have even advised my son (I have 2 older boys out of college, one with a very serious GF) that "late July/early August is a bad month for me" in case they start making any kind of crazy plans! lol!

See? This is EXACTLY why I joined Stampin' Up! Every kind word and words of advice that you all have sent my way mean so much to me and have reinforced why I joined SU. This is a wonderful family and I am very proud to be a part of it!

I really hope one day that I, too, can attend a convention- they sound like soooo much fun!!!

Thank you to everyone!!!

Thanks...I am getting giddy...except for one thing...they haven't even shipped my demo kit. I ordered it last Saturday and it's still showing as submitted. I would have thought for sure that they would have sent it out this week...sigh!!!

yeah, I can understand your excitement, but as it's Convention this week, I imagine there's a slight delay with shipping. Don't quote me on that, but it's a possibility! Hopefully it ships soon! also, sometimes it may say submitted until it's on your doorstep!

My first encounter of Stampin Up I thought, "Oh ANOTHER one of those tupperware type party plan things" Hee Hee I converted (thanks to Dawn5377 and her amazing videos on Youtube) and guess who has been a demo since april and LOVING it! *eating a large slice of humble pie* I especially love the new friends that I have made and are going to continue to make

Congratulations! You will enjoy being a demonstrator for SU! It is a terrific company who (I think) spoils their demonstrators!

Well, I hate to be a "glass half empty" kind of girl but I'm feeling a little discouraged as I still haven't received my starter kit. It's still showing up in OEX(?) as submitted. I called SU today and they said it had been shipped but they didn't have a tracking number for me to look up. I don't even think my customer orders ever took this long...hmmmm......

Lesley, I hope your kit came today or will be there tomorrow -- or that they at least find a tracking number for you. I ordered last Monday and was surprised that it took so long to receive it. They emailed me a UPS tracking number and when I checked it seemed like it must have been sent the ultra-slow route. The kit arrived today.
Good luck to you.
