Finally I get to show you the stamp set I designed as part of my Million Dollar Sales accomplishment. Yesterday was the first day demonstrators could start ordering it. I am so excited.
You will want to check on September 1, when you can finally order, as I will have lots to share with you using this set.
In the meantime, let me tell give you a little history about the set. I hit my million dollar milestone a year ago last March. That is how long it takes for a set to get into a catalog.
The set was being dreamed about long before I hit the million dollar goal. In fact, Jay and I had a plan for this set. He was to have retired this year, and we were going to travel. He knew I wouldn't be able to give Stampin' Up! up, so we decided we could visit wineries in our travels, and I could teach "Sip & Stamp Classes".
Unfortunately our plans for retirement were not God's plan, and He took Jay home 2 years ago before this set became reality. So you will notice on the wine bottle the vintage year is the year Jay and I were married 1975. Just a small remembrance. Love that man to pieces.
Here I am in Thailand with Co-Founder of Stampin' Up! Shelli Gardner just before I did my stamp presentation for the demonstrators on the incentive trip.
Here I am stamping and displaying my samples. What an honor it has been to see my name next to my stamp set in the Holiday Catalog. If you have purchased from my in the last 6 months your Holiday Catalog should be in your mailbox the middle of the month.

Jay would be so proud of you. You're one amazing person and love getting to know you from miles away. Maybe one day we will meet.
Nothing would make me happier then us to meet. I am planning on being a snowbird this winter. Not sure what route I am taking but maybe could meet up for lunch.
