Nine years ago this week I signed up to be a Stampin' Up! demonstrator under Mary Fish. And here I thought it would be a quiet hobby to putter with now and then. I am still a hobbyist but have made so many new friends and have traveled all over to stamping events. I had never heard of Splitcoast or Design Teams but I somehow jumped right in! And then there's this blog....who would have ever thought I would blog? Mary did - she encouraged me and helped me set it up way back when. Mary was relatively new to SU as well when I signed up but there was no doubt that she was going places. So while I puttered along Mary built an amazing team of stampers and sold over a million dollars in product. She is a wonderful upline and there are still a few of us in her downline from the early years. We have rooted for her every step of the way!
I was drawn to Mary's clean, simple and oh so classy design style from the beginning. Varied Vases is her million dollar set and it is oh so Mary! I kept my card CAS as well and featured some brand new colors from SU's line. I am loving the new color refresh!
I also love love love Kim's sketch this week - that's one love for every stripe! Have fun with it at Freshly Made Sketches!
