International Women’s Day!

International Womens Day


International Women’s Day (8 March) is a global day celebrating the economic, political and social achievements of women past, present and future. In some places like China, Russia, Vietnam and Bulgaria, International Women’s Day is a national holiday.

I say that everyday is a good day to celebrate women (where would the world be without them?) but March 8th is as good a day as any!!

I have been a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator since March 9, 1995 (look at that:  I was celebrating back then!) and I have loved every minute of it!  From the creativity of crafting to the pride of owning my own business, this has been one amazing journey.  Because of Stampin’ Up!, I have traveled so much: partly from attending conventions and partly from earning incentive trips that have taken me to Alaska (twice), Hawaii (twice), Bermuda, Panama Canal, Mexico, and the Caribbean.  I even earned a trip for 2 to Fiji!!

More than that, though, I have achieved independence!  For the first 14 years of being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, I also worked full-time in the software industry; as much as I loved the people and the paycheck, I feel so much better about who I am now that I am running a full-time business.  I’m not rich, but I am supporting myself and I have the freedom to do what I want when I want.  Seriously, who wouldn’t want that?

And friends, oh the friends I have made!  From all over – the kindest, most generous, creative people, GOOD people!  With the new life that I am planning now, I will meet even more, and we will have crafting in common – I can’t wait!

If you are a crafter AND/OR you want your own business, whether you are a woman OR a man, I invite you to join my team of demonstrators who love what they do and share what they love.  Click HERE for more information and/or to get started.
