Friends Who Make Good Times Great

Last week I hosted a small, casual open house for the new Stampin' Up! Idea Book. I've been a Demonstrator since 2002. My first three years, I really worked my business and along the way hosted over a hundred Stamp Camps, classes, Open Houses, events and workshops, while building a Downline. I meet numerous women in all different walks of life and now have the pleasure of calling many of them friends.

As my life changed, my children grew and I began working a full-time job in 2006, I stepped back from my business and started hosting a monthly club with some of those friends, a delightful group of woman that I enjoy stamping with. They've kept me afloat as a Demonstrator, but more importantly have inspired me in my stamping and encouraged me in life. They are definitely friends who make good times great!

In just a few short months our club will end and this time I will be hanging up my SU! apron for good. As I do, I want to thank these women for their friendships and the great times we have shared! To Amy, Char, Cherie, Priscilla, Sherry Lee, Susan, Teresa and Theresa, many thanks and much love!

I look forward to what lies ahead as we stretch our stamping wings! Blessings~ Patti

Your card is so beautiful, Patti! The touch of gray works so well with the lavender, and the pearls are an elegant addition to this tribute card. What a blessing to have made so many friends along your SU! journey.

Interesting parallel.... I started with CTMH in 2002, though always as a hobbyist. I haven't placed an order this year and have dropped to jr. status. I'm on my way out as well, though instead of going back to work full time, my time-consumer has been taking on the role of homeschool teacher in 2007. The huge differences being you're earning money, while we're spending more; and your circle of friends enlarged, while mine grew smaller. Hmmmm.....
