  3. Congrats on your one year blog-a-versary, Josee!

    I am Canadian and just signed up to be a demo last month so I have a whole lot of stamp collecting to do, haha.

    My favorite thing about stamping is that I can usually complete a project in under an hour. This is highly important to me as my family is on the go 26 hours a day ๐Ÿ™‚ I wouldn’t dare touch a scrapbook page, haha.

    Thanks for your generosity! Good luck to everyone.

  4. I am a Canadian and the thing I love about stamping is that it lets a non creative person make wonderful things! I have just become a demonstrator, though I really have no idea what to do!!

  5. I am from Scotland and the thing i love about stamping is the diversity, i can colour, watercolour, leave it blank, ink it, emboss it, glitter it there is no limit to the amount of things to do and ways to play, I am not a demonstrator,

  6. Hi, I’m from Michigan, USA and I love sharing my love of (casing) stamping with my friends and customers.. I’m not a creative one.. and I’ve been a demonstrator for 5 1/2 years… and still excited for new ideas!

  7. Congrats on a whole year! WOO HOO!!!
    I’m in Manitoba, Canada. Stamping can be as simple or as intricate as I want to try and make it. I really like that my kids can do it with me, too. I’m not a demonstrator.

  8. Congratulations on your anniversary! I’m from the United States and am not a demonstrator. I love stamping because it provides me with the opportunity to give something personalized and unique to my friends and family. Plus, it’s so fun!

    I am from Saskatchewan, Canada. What I love about stamping is how relaxing it is for me. I am a SAHM and a work-at-home mom so my life is very busy. When I sit down to make cards, it’s like everything else stops and all I have is my stamping. I love it. I am also a demonstrator which is great because I love to share my passion of stamping with friends.

    Have a great week and Happy Thanksgiving!

  19. Hi Josee,
    Congratulations on your anniversary! I have been checking out your blog for quite a while, but never took the time to post comments – sorry about that! I am in awe of your achievements as a Demo. I’m from NZ, and yes I am a Demonstrator for Stampin’ Up!. Just a baby really since it only started here in April last year, so it is all really so new to us. What I love most about it (apart from now having craft supplies to die for!) is the fabulous friends I have made since I joined – wonderful customers who have become friends, not to mention the amazingly creative ladies in my upline’s team (and in my own little team). Keep up the great work and thanks for being such a fabulous role model for us!

  20. Sorry, NZ stands for New Zealand in case anyone didn’t know that!
