#1 Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – The Countdown Is On, a Treat Update!
Happy Monday everyone!
I’m sat at my desk, Yodel have just delivered a huge supply of Nespresso Pods and my car wouldn’t unlock this morning. It’s been a day of ups and downs! I have a remote control unlocking system for my car and it’s a key-less ignition. Unfortunately when I came to take the boys to school, nothing would work at all (I totally blame Chris, he went into the boot of the car yesterday…!). So all small boys were dispatched to walk, with urgent phone calls by me to the schools to let them know everyone was going to be late.
Not a fine start to the day. But then…. Yodel turned up with a huge delivery of Nespresso pods and suddenly we were back on an even keel!!!
So I’m now sat at my desk in my office, I’ve cleared emails that came in overnight and I thought I’d grab an opportunity to keep you up to date with what’s happening here right now.
Some of you follow me on instagram and/or my facebook business page, and you’ll know what I’ve been counting down for the last couple of weeks, but if you’re not on there, you’re perhaps unaware that as of 2 weeks ago, I crossed the mark that took me to less than $10,000 to reach the infamous $1m sales mark. Now I’m writing this in dollars as we work in unique ‘currency’ inside Stampin’ Up! and it coincides with dollars – (our £££ and €€€ are translated into a uniform currency that all SU countries work in). Heck, you wouldn’t understand what CSV is in our ‘language’, so dollars it is!
And it’s a huge milestone, I think only around 35 other demonstrators in Stampin’ Up’s entire history have ever achieved it and I’m super close. As I type today, I’m now under 3,000 to go and I’ve been ticking off a little chart I made for myself!
A few people have asked me if I’m going to do a special treat for the person who places an order that puts me over the 1 million mark, however that would fall into the realms of gambling and lotteries and unfortunately legally I cannot do that. So instead, I’ve decided to overload my thank you goodie packs this month so that Everyone who orders in my million month will get something amazing.
My goodie packs that I send out to all my customers each month always include a handmade card (yes, I make them all myself!) with a newsletter just for them and then a product treat too. And it’s one treat per person, no matter how many times you order. However, this month, I’m going to send you a treat for Each order you put in. So if you order from me 3 times, you get 3 goodies included! I already do this with those who use my hostess code (use the code, use the code, use the code!) so you could have a well loaded treat pack this month.
It’s my way of saying thank you THANK YOU to everyone. I’m excited for this milestone, I adore my job and all that it entails. I love to create. I love to read your emails and comments. My heart sings when the postman drops a handwritten envelope through the door and I see that it’s a handmade card from someone. That I get to share my job so very globally is amazing. I work in an office in a little market town in Cambridgeshire, yet I talk to people all over the world every day. That’s surely the best job ever, right?
125 people have already got loaded goodie packs with their names on this month, and I want to load them up some more!
With huge gratitude, love and everything else.
(and Berry who’s just appeared from under my computer monitor and decided that my to do list is now hers…!)
I hope you enjoyed this project, I absolutely adore what I do and spend many hours working on designs, new projects, new ideas and more.
I love to spoil all the people who shop with me, so every month I post out a handmade card, an exclusive newsletter and a product gift too.
And if you use the hostess code, I send even more free product! (hostess code shown in the top right of my blog for the current one!) Learn more HERE. If your order is over £150, please do not use this code as You become the hostess and get the Rewards!
