Always be prepared

I’ve been a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator for almost five years (come this July).  I absolutely love being a demonstrator for this fabulous company but I have a hard time approaching people to tell them about Stampin’ Up! and asking them to host a stampin’ party.

Saturday I was wearing one of my Stampin’ Up! shirts I bought at Convention two years ago.  I stopped into CVS Pharmacy to pick up a prescription refill and this time I went into the store instead of going through the drive-thru window.  My neighborhood pharmacist Kay noticed my shirt and commented on it and asked me where I got it.  I explained to her that I’m a demonstrator for Stampin’ Up!, an arts and crafts oriented direct sales company, and that the shirt was the design from one of our exclusive designer series papers.  She said “why haven’t I heard of them” and then asked for a catalog.  Sadly I failed miserably in “being prepared 101” – I did not have one in my car!

Early this morning I put together eight catalog sets (Annual Catalog, Spring Catalog and the Sale-a-bration Flyer) in a clear Stampin’ Up! logo bag and set out to distribute them all today.  I handed out three to some ladies I ride the DART train with everyday and then I handed out three more to Kay and her co-workers at CVS.   Six out of eight isn’t too bad of an accomplishment in one day (for me anyways)!

I still have plenty of catalogs available so if you don’t have one and want one, leave me a comment or send me an email and I will get one right out to you!

Below is a photo from a couple of years ago taken at one of our upline / downline meetings – this is the shirt I was wearing on Saturday (that’s me in the middle).
