I received an intriguing email today from what appeared at first glance to be Stampin' Up! And I read it and thought...."No way is this for real." So, I asked at SCS and no one had ever received an email like this. Meanwhile I'm googling the phone number and cross checking it against area codes and exchanges in Riverton. I'm grabbing my Stampin' Success magazines to check for names and numbers. I call up Demonstrator Support and verified with name and phone number with them. Hung up, and let out a huge, excited scream!! It's real! It's really real!!!! Then of course I called the person who sent the email and talked with her about the project.
Here's a portion of the email.....
Congratulations! You’ve been selected for a spotlight article in Stampin’ Success magazine.
OMG!!!! For those of you who are wondering what the heck Stampin' Success magazine is it's the magazine that SU! sends out to all their demos once a month with information on promotions that are current or coming up shortly, tips and tricks, contests, sample projects, etc. There are articles in there featuring demos as well with how they run their business or how they've become successful with Stampin' Up!
Now do you know why I'm so thrilled? I've always wondered how those demos got picked for such articles.....I guess now I know. And now I'm off to expedite that Sale-a-Bration order I'm putting in! Gotta gets me some fun new stuff to play with. I'll keep everyone posted on when the article comes out.
And...I was so excited I made an SUO card just for the occasion....well that and my Thoughts and Prayers set arrived today and I love to ink up fresh rubber.
