#1 Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Love of Leaves Customer Thank You Cards
You have no idea just how proud I am as a Mum right now. And as a demonstrator actually….
In the middle of July, my eldest son Jack could see that I was getting a little overwhelmed with trying to juggle work, family, schooling etc, and he could see it was just getting on top of me.
So he came to my office one day and asked what he could do to help me.
There isn’t a great deal of my job that I can hand over to anyone, so since I first became a demo, I have done it all aspects of my job by myself, bar the occasions when the family all muck in to pack catalogues or gift packs.
But for the first time, I felt it was right to have him help me on a more creative level.
As you’ve seen in the past, Jack is particularly creative, so I asked him if he felt he could make all my customer thank you cards if I designed one for him to work to.
Well, without going into the background, I’m delighted to share that all the cards that went in the post last week were made entirely by him. Yes, that’s 160+ cards that he stamped by hand and punched and rhinestoned and more.
We did have a tiny lane swerve at the end when we realised I didn’t have anywhere near enough ribbon to create the loop you see in this photo here, but otherwise, every single card was created by him.
So this is a really big deal for me that as a Mum, my son has seen that I needed help, but he didn’t wait to be asked, he just offered. And as a demonstrator, while I can’t see myself ever handing this over on a permanent basis, (I love stamping them myself too much and it’s such a privilege to have so many!), it’s nice to know that if and when I need some help, he is there able to help.
much love, Sam, and of course, Jack too.
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.
