Friends: A Stampin' Up! Twist of Fate!

Today I'm sharing a project I designed for my sister Jill.  She called me a couple of months ago to help her put together a photo craft project that she wanted to do at a dinner she was having for her friends.  At the dinner she wanted to take a group picture and add it to the project. 

The first thing that came to my mind was an easel card.  So I designed the basic template to fit a 4x6 photo.  Then we worked together with the stamp sets she had and put a plan together for the look of the card.  She did a nice job decorating the card and her friends LOVED it!  Even the ones who never stamped before.  Here's how the card turned out...

My sister is in the front middle


Now on to the twist of fate...

See the gal in the front row, all the way to the right.  Let me introduce her to you...her name is Monica Vollmuth.  Little did she know, the Stampin' Up! party she had 9 years ago introduced me to the world of stamping!  In fact - she couldn't even remember having the party and repeatedly denied it.  After much convincing - she started to recall it. 

The story even gets more twisted...I really don't even know Monica.  She's my sister Jill's neighbor.  I was never invited to that party 9 years ago.  My sister made me go, because the invitation said to "bring a friend".  Ha - who knew what twist of fate that night would bring and how it would impact my life.  Well, I got to thank her that night.  Thank you Monica, and Jill for making me go!  My life has forever changed since that magical night!

What's the morale of my story...well, if your sister (or friend) says you need to go somewhere with her...maybe you should go!  You just never know what will happen!

Happy Stamping~Dawn O

Sharing Stampin' Up! and Birthday Cards

The story goes...about a year and a half ago, I asked fellow demonstrator and friend, Kay Kalthoff to be the guest speaker at one of my DOstamperSTARS downline meetings.  She did a fabulous job of sharing and even provided a make and take for the meeting! 

Of course I told Kay that I'd be happy to speak at one of her meetings too.  She finally took me up on that offer and last night I had the pleasure of attending her downline meeting. I thoroughly enjoyed meeting her lovely group, who warmly welcomed me with hugs and gifts.  In fact, several must be some of my blog followers as they knew I had an upcoming birthday and made me some beautiful birthday cards.  Aren't stampers the best?

Before the meeting I asked Kay what she wanted me to talk about or present.  She asked me to share my Stampin' Up! story and if time, do a creative presentation.  First off - I LOVE sharing my story.  Why...for several reasons: 

  1. It's a great reminder on how I got started.  Just like everyone else...I started with the same starter kit, no customers, but with the excitement of doing something new.  
  2. To appreciate how far I've come with my business.  It really gives me perspective and reminds me that I have accomplished a lot! 
  3. Every time I share my story, I get excited about my business again.  Even though sometimes I don't feel like I'm where I want to be...I gotta remember where it all started and celebrate where it has taken me.  Telling my story does that for me!
  4. YOU!  Almost always when I share my story, several of you can relate or get inspired.  You come up afterwards, or email me later and share what touched you or even share bits about your story.  That excites me the most!  I remember hearing other demonstrator stories and getting motivated too.  So I love that it's my turn to do that for others!

Now onto the lovely birthday cards I received. 

 Birthday-Cards-Kay2 

Clockwise from the left:  Mary Smallidge, Sue McNeill, Kay Kalthoff and Sue again.  I feel bad - I received another one, that I've already misplaced.  Oops - sorry!

Thank you Kay for giving me the opportunity to share my story and making me feel special!
