I am back from an amazing 11 day trip out west. So love what I do, as it allows me to combine business with pleasure. First it was to see a dear friend Charlene in Globe, AZ. So love the sunsets over the mountains. We did some hiking as we explored the countryside. And we checked out some quaint boutiques in some of the little towns.
Then it was off to Phoenix for the business end of the trip. Stampin' Up! honored demonstrators for their performances over the past year. Our Stampin' Up Year ends on September 31. Thanks to my amazing customers and Stamp Family I received Top Awards in Sales, Recruiting and Leadership. And I earned my 19th Incentive Trip, that Jodie and I will take in July to Thailand.
The biggest honor was being #51 from nearly 50,000 demonstrators worldwide. I am so humbled to have a job that allows me to travel all over the world, meet so many wonderful people, but still call it my job. Not many are blessed with such wonderful opportunities.
The main attraction to go to Stampin' Up!'s OnStage was viewing the new Occasions and Sale-a-Bration Catalogs that will be available starting in Jan. You will be hearing lots about these two catalogs in the coming weeks.
Then it was off to Livermore, CA were I spend 5 days with a dear Stampin' Up! Sister Kim Peck and her family. They live in a beautiful area surrounded by wineries. Kim arranged for us to make our own bottle of wine in honor of my birthday.
Truly blessed thanks to everyone who has made this trip possible.
