Stampin' Up! Convention - random ramblings from Awards Night..

Top 10 sa promo

Stampin' Up! does an amazing job making their demonstrators feel loved and appreciated!!  There are awards, prizes, marches on stage, flowers, gifts, ... you name it.. they sure know how to spoil us!  At Convention 2010 last week, I was recognized for ...

  • #5 in Demonstrator of the Year out of all the demonstrators in the US!
  • I placed 8th in the company with 13 Sr. Associate promotions in my 1st level Luv 2 Stamp Group
  • I recruited 16 demonstrators into my 1st level of the Luv 2 Stamp Group
  • Celebrated being in the Stampin' Up! business for 15 years!
  • Surpassing the $400,000 mark in career sales!
  • Selling over $60,000 in the last fiscal year!
  • Earning the upcoming 2011 Incentive Trip to Alaska! All expenses paid for TWO people!

Being in the top 100 "Demonstrator of the Year" category in Stampin' Up!, means I am in the Founder's Circle and get to go on a four day, all expenses paid trip to beautiful St. George, Utah with the top 100 demonstrators in the entire country!  I have been on this trip twice before and it is so much fun to hang out with my Stamping buddies and relax, eat, talk, swap, share tips and ideas, stamp, eat, relax, visit the Stampin' Up! manufacturing facility in Kanab, relax, eat, oh .. ya..  I mentioned that part :)

Demonstrator of the Year status is determined by a combination of factors from the previous year: personal sales, personal recruiting, personal promotions, and promotions and sales of the demonstrators in the first level of your group.  I was beyond AMAZED and honored to have ranked 5th in the company.. that was a total surprise and was made even better by having my husband and son in attendance at the Awards Night ceremony!!! Bless them for driving all the way from the San Francisco area to be with me!!! 

As they called up the top 100 in groups of 10, starting from #100, I fully expected to be called WAY before #10 .. but when they got to #11 and I knew I was in the top 10, this was my reaction.. I could NOT believe it! Look at Stella's face (next to me).. she is so shocked too.... I still get butterflies thinking of that moment!
