I love my job! #bts

I think we are all a little guilty of not counting our blessings from time to time, right? We can get caught up in the busyness of life and not take time to appreciate all that is good.

Today I’ve been reflecting on how much I love my job as a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator and thought I’d give you some behind the scenes of my day.

It started with the usual school run (we cycled) and I almost passed out, again. I will get fit, I will get fit. Quick trip to the supermarket on the way home then a couple of chores to finish before my ‘working day’ started.

But first, tea!


Do you love my pretty mug? We were given them at Onstage on Saturday, along with the pens that are perfect to use with my Love today planner 

I have many exciting plans using the gorgeous Spring/Summer catalogue and some changes to the way I do things that I’ll tell you all about soon!


I designed the cards we’ll be making for the Christmas Cheer Challenge, they are all super easy and perfect for quick stamping. Well, I have set a total target of 200 cards after all! Everyone that attends will receive:

Merry Mistletoe Stamp set
Be Merry Designer Series Paper
2 packs of notecards and envelopes enough to make 40 cards but I ask only for 10 on the day
Be Merry Cardstock Pack
Double-Stitched Ribbon
Metallic Enamel Shapes
All for only £45 – Contents are Worth £58

A great way to kick off your Christmas card making AND supporting a worthwhile cause!
