Default Took the plunge!

I've finally decided, why fight it?! I'm becoming a demo!!

I've got my forms (have to wait until I'm on lunch to fill them out, I shouldn't even be posting!!) and will express them off to my demo today.

Once I have my number, I'm laughing. I already have a friend who has a $750 order (Canadian)... yippee!

This place drove me to it!


Yippee!!

WOOHOO!!!! Congrats! I was wondering why you are always contemplating it and wishing, but never 'taking the plunge'! You will have a blast and then you don't have to wait until you hear SU news from us...you will find out first hand!

Have fun picking out your starter kit stuff!

OMG Debbi I'm sooooo excited for you!! Can you hear the cheers from across the border!!! I can't believe you signed up. Were you really even contemplating it for long. You little stinker you didn't even say anything!!! Can you tell I'm excited? I guess it is down to just Kar & I left in the wannabe category, huh?

Congrats to you!!! WooHoo!!! You are going to be great because your cards are so awesome already.

Oh Debbie. That is so awesome, so exciting. Can you feel the fever yet. Are you already contemplating how to achieve your stampin start (your friend is really giving you a head start) and which two sets you want to pick. And then while your at it, sign your friend up...just for the discount, to get yourself two more free sets of your choice! Free, free, free RUBBER!!!! I love this company!

Big grin and doing a happy dance for you!

Congratulations!! The support from fellow demonstrators and the information posted here and the SU web board is awesome!! AND your already creating such wonderful cards and such that you'll have customers lined up to have you demonstrate all the SU has to offer.
I'm sure you will absolutely love it and HAVE fun picking out your starter kit items.

Ooooooh! Debbi! Congratulations! You always show such creativity and your posts are so friendly.....you'll be a GREAT demo. You have nice friends too it sounds like. Already being on this site, you have such a great background and a wealth of support and ideas. Have a blast choosing your starter kit and biting your nails while you wait for it to arrive. I'm so excited for you. SU is a wonderful company to be connected with... YEA!

Yup, I'm excited alright!
Beate, I can't sign anyone up (yet) ~ that person would be cutting into my turf!! LOL.......but seriously, it would! It's a very small island. I need to be doing it for a while. Maybe if it takes off.....

Princess, I've been contemplating for over a year!! Really!! My demo, Val, has asked me constantly. My biggest fear was being my own best customer (try rationalizing why I just "had to" spend $450 [to get my quota for the quarter] on stamps to a DH who just doesn't get it! ). Now I've discovered I've got one EXCELLENT customer!! Woohoo!! That one excellent one is my stepping stone.

I look forward to being an extended part of the family!
Now, I'd better get back to work (Princess, today could really be the day I get fired! LOL) so I can take my lunch soon and fill out my forms! I so can't wait!!

And thanks to EVERYONE here for the encouragement. Yes, Princess.....you and Kar should stop being wannabes!

Good decision...I signed up about a year and a half ago and it has made such a positive impact on my life. You will love it all and now you can come to convention next year...the best part of being a demo, I think.

Maybe we'd better send a warning to ups so she doesn't knock the driver over when her starter kit arrives

Debbi~ I thought you already were a demo!!! I took the big step on Wednesday! My husband doesn't get it either, but I guess I don't get his facination with hitting a small white ball in to a hole!
Yeah for you!!!

LOL......nor do I understand my DH's fascination with hunting and fishing! But he enjoys it and it makes him happy. Hopefully soon he'll see that it does the same for me.

stampcrazygirl - don't know yet! will decide at lunch. I already have all the AYC sets so I'll probably opt for some of the other "saying" sets, such as Wonderful Words or something.....not sure yet! Aah, only another 1/2 hour and I can go get busy on choosing!!

NavyWyf ~ hiya!! Thanks for the email the other day!!

I'm really happy too.

And no worries about the UPS dude. They don't actually deliver way up here, and the outfit that does....my friend is the driver! I'll alert her to the importance of timely deliveries!!

YIPPEE! This must mean I get Enrique and some Tempting Turquoise Massage Oil! Woohoo!!!! (That is, if he's recovered from the whole Lana trauma! Just kiddin' Lana!!) Is that my first bonus?!

Good to hear from you Darth! We've missed you!

Kept Itty Bitty Backgrounds and Fresh Flowers (because those are the inspiration sheets you get, not cuz I love it)...but then ordered In the Wild, Shapes and Shadows (because of all the pre-convention samples!), Simple Sayings and Heart of Africa wheel...as I already had AYC I and don't like tags and more...or perfect party...

I'm not really into the demo aspect (yet), just more of the discount aspect! So far. Mind you, I just mailed the paperwork to my demo for her signature, so I'm not even a newbie yet!! LOL...but I'm sure looking forward to it!

My GF who moved away (Hi Tifany!! I miss you!!) told me last year she has a GF whos husband calls scrapping and stamping "a cult"...LOL...so we now refer to everything as "cult supplies".

How funny is that?!

I'm right there with you on the "cult" thing. My DH just shakes his head when he hears me on the phone talking stamping or scrapping. Or when I get into the "craft closet". If he only knew how much $$$ I have wrapped up in these 2 hobbies he would probably have a heart attack.

Debbi, How long will it take to actually receive your kit. I'm just busting at the seams for you!!

Congrats Debbi,
It's so exciting to see SU taking off in Canada, I'm so excited for you! You do awesome work and with your enthusiasm I know you'll do great!
I only had 2 customers for my first year and a half and I was one of them! Once I truly decided to do this as a business I couldn't believe how it took off! Some of my best customers are ones who at the start wouldn't even do a make and take because they didn't "do crafts" How exciting is that.

I wish you all the best.

Heather

Default Yeah!

QC! You are doin' it? Yeah! I'm so excited for you! You won't regret it. I always wish I would have signed up sooner. Stampin' Up is a great company to work with and it has given me a lot of opportunities to make new friends. I hang out with people who LOVE stamping just like I do. It is awesome to share such a passion. Are you going to convention next year?????? Please say yes! Woohooo! That would be so awesome. I was so excited when I seen your post. I 'm very happy for you.

I remember when I FINALLY got my kit. I was waiting and waiting and waiting. Turned out SU goofed and sent it to MN instead of WI. I couldn't believe it! But don't you worry, whenever SU goofs, they are right there to get things straightened out. Everyone who works at SU is wonderful! Very friendly and helpful.

OMG! I could go on and on and on! I'm just so darned excited for you! You go girl! Congratulations girlfriend!

P.S. A lot of my customer's husbands think this is a cult too. They always want to know who this "Lana Lepinski" is in their checkbooks all the time! YIKES!

Beate -
It is not the support that I'm worried about ~ it is the part about being my own best customer!! Besides, my cards are definately NOT demo quality....yet. I just really enjoy stamping and don't know if I want to jump that fence. At some point I may decide to come over but at this point I'm content to stay on this side. LOL
