So time flies doesn’t it… I can’t believe it’s been 4 years since I made the decision to join Stampin’ Up in the last couple of days of Sale a Bration. It feels like it’s always been part of my life, yet it equally feels like it was just yesterday that I thought ‘why not, let’s get some discount for my crafting hobby’. And that’s how it was. I simply wanted a discount for my crafting, but I made a decision change about 6 weeks in and it’s the best change of mind I’ve ever had!

For the 3 years I’ve been able to, I’ve been the number 1 selling and recruiting demo in the UK and this past year, I’ve been the number 1 leadership demo as well (I got 2nd place the year before!) I’ve earned trips to Madeira, Mediterranean Cruise, Thailand and Alaska. This is from a girl who enjoys crafting. This is such an amazing opportunity for everyone and I was always that girl who thought that trips were for other people, or awards were for others. But they’re not. Everyone has a chance.

So my 4 years have been so much fun and I’ve had so many chances to connect with you all that are here in the UK like me and around the world. In just a week’s time I am flying out to Amsterdam and will be spending time with my international team as well as my British team and I can’t wait.

My project today though, very carefully planned in advance…. ish. I forgot which day it was coming out when I filmed it, so I make no reference to today being my anniversary! Gah! Silly me! But I do think this is a project that sums up me very well and I hope you like it too!

  16. Very cute little box. I’m in the US and don’t have a clue where I could get these large tea lights. There isn’t an IKEA anywhere near me, but I’m sure I could use that size box for something else too. Thanks!
