Wow - what an awesome awards night at the 2013 Stampin' Up! Convention! But before I share that, I want to take a minute to look back in time...(insert dreamy harp music).
Here's me at my first convention - 10 years ago
As Stampin' Up! recalls and celebrates 25 years, it's moved me to look back to when I started Stampin' Up! and my very first convention 10 years ago. I didn't know anyone at the time, but who knew that 10 years later, some of my dearest friends would be forged from our connection to Stampin' Up!
Also who knew - as extraordinary women like Mary Polcin from Wi crossed that stage 10 years ago inspiring me to actually build a business, that I too would be crossing that very same stage for extraordinary accomplishments myself.
Also who knew - that I would be just like Mary and inspire others. I was stopped by many of you as you thanked me for sharing, inspiring, educating you and more! I was moved to tears many times with your stories and appreciation for what I do. (I'm misty-eyed just writing this now)
On a more lighter note - it was fun to walk around with one of my DOstamperSTARS, Gayle Klingelhoets for her very first convention...who told everyone she was my bodyguard and photographer. What a hoot!
Finally...onto the awards night.

First off, thanks to the fast feet of DOstamperSTAR, Jan Carlson...she snagged some front row seats. Always fun to sit in the front row.
Not only was I celebrating 10 years with Stampin' Up!, $400k career milestone, Acheiver Bonus and Grand Vacation earner (to Western Caribbean), but I acheived some very special awards as well. Take a look...
Top 10 in Sales - #5
Top 10 in Promotion - #7
Founders Circle Acheiver - Top 100 demonstrators
Thanks to all my awesome customers, DOstamperSTARS, family and friends who supported me this year. You're all the bestest and I love ya all!!
So here's to the next 10 years...DREAM BIG! Because with a dream, a plan and action...you can DO anything!
