Hi everyone, thank you so much for all the great questions and wonderful compliments. I think I've told you this before, but my Love Language is "Words of Affirmation", and y'all are certainly talkin' my language! :o)
Okay, I'll be posting the answers to all of the questions a little bit later (I'm almost done with it), but for now, let me share with you the winner of the blog candy... my random generator chose the following comment:
Have a wonderful time with your family. What do you like most about being a SU! demo? Thanks for the chance to win.
Congratulations, Sara!! Please contact me with your address and I'll get the goodies off to you!
Now to answer her question... well, there are so many things I love about it. First of all, I love to be creative. I have been an artist at heart since I was very small - my father always told me I should be a commercial artist when I grow up. But something else I have always enjoyed is teaching. With my job as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, I get to combine both of those passions and TEACH others how to be CREATIVE!
As for other reasons, the earning potential is certainly there and I am amazed at how successful I can be without even giving it my all... someday when the boys are older I'd like to really sink my teeth in to this role and see how far I can go. But for now, I must continue to keep my hands on the reigns, so to speak, and pull back when it starts to gallop along too quickly! That's the beauty of working for yourself - you control your own hours.
And finally, who doesn't love a big brown truck stopping in front of your house to hand you a box full of brand new stamping supplies?? In only a short amount of time, I had enough income to start purchasing anything I wanted without pulling from the family account (my husband is very happy about that!), and now I truly have the freedom to order anything and everything I want and still save money to go toward our vacations, etc. It just couldn't be better... I should've done it a long time ago.
Thanks again! I'll be back later with ALL of the answers...
