Top Worldwide Demonstrator No. 116

Photograph 1
Hello, Crafters.

When I went to bed last night, I'd started to prepare today's blog, and had written the first two paragraphs. 
This morning, when I checked my computer I found a message from my team leader congratulating me on my rankings! I wasn't sure what she was referring to until I checked out the Natalie's Facebook group for her team of Stampin Stars and I saw that I'm:-

No. 8 for top sales in UK
No. 7 for recruiting in UK
No. 15 for leadership in UK
No. 14 top overall demo in the UK
No. 116 top overall demo in the World!!!

I would like to say a very big THANK YOU to all my wonderful customers, and all the wonderful demonstrators I have in my team!

I would also like to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who follows my blog, has subscribed to my YouTube channel, and LIKED my Facebook Page - you all play a very important part in my motivation for doing what I do!

Last but by no means least, my very patient and supportive hubby - THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

Each and everyone of you have played an important role in this fantastic journey I'm travelling, thank you for keeping me company. ♥♥♥

Now I must get my feet back on the ground, and carry on from where I left off last night!

What a day yesterday was! I have never known so much excitement, mine included, about the launch of a new Stampin' Up! product as there was yesterday about the STAMPARATUS. 

Today I have a lot of catching up to do!

One of the jobs I did get done yesterday was photographing the gifts and other goodies I received from Stampin' Up! at OnStage last weekend.

Unfortunately, I'm really struggling with posting photographs to my blog today, so I'm giving up trying.

I thought I'd be able to number the photographs and then describe them, but I can't even do that.

So let me just say what the photographs are in order as they are appearing to me, which hopefully is the same way they're appearing to you!

1). Lanyard and ribbons showing achievement levels

2). Stampin' Up! 30th anniversary pin and Alaska pin

3 & 4). Coffee mug, back and front which was in our tote bag.
5 & 6). Beautiful note pad that was in our tote bags - so many demos - me included - thought they were too good to write in! LOL.
7). Pink badge for Prize Patrol

8 & 9). Tote bag we were given at check in - note new Stampin' Up! logo! 

10 & 11). 30th anniversary tote bag

12 & 13). T-shirt we received when we went to CentreStage on Friday evening.

I'm signing off now before I pick this machine up and lob it out of the window!

I really hope hubby can make it better behaved for me when he gets home tonight, but I'm not sure how far he'll get - he's been working on this all weekend!

Until tomorrow, happy crafting.



  1. WOW! May I offer my CONGRATULATIONS to the heap ... and just say that you are the one who has done all the work to achieve all that you have; we're just along for the ride, but it couldn't have fallen on a nicer lady to have accomplished all that you have. So huge hugs and 'job very well done!' -- you so deserve the recognition and thanks!

    1. Hi, Geraldine! I was so shocked when I saw these results. They say you are more likely to achieve goals if you write them down, and tell someone! Therefore, my new goal is to be in the top 100 next November! This means I have to work even harder than this year! Can I do it? Time will tell! ☺ Happy crafting, JanB.
