And to sweeten the launch of a new catalog we have a new ordering interface on our Online Shop. This is a game changer ya'll!
I am not going to write about all of the changes, you can read what they shared with us Demonstrators last week:
We are happy to announce a feature in the new online store that will help us create a better shopping experience for your customers.

Celebrating My 15th Stampaversary All August 2020

Happy 15th Anniversary Month from Sandy with Needs A Ribbon!I started stamping at my first party at my cousins house (Hi Ann) in September 2003. It was that demonstrators first in home party, Denise, who is now my direct upline. I joined one of her monthly clubs shortly after that. And my March of the following year I knew I wanted to be a Demonstrator. It was just not quite the right time in my life or my family’s. I held to my promise to her that I would join eventually. I was her first downline, joining on August 26, 2005, right after my family got back from a 3 week vacation.

I have had many team members over the years, currently I have a team of 8 plus me. And I am happy to say I am still…

Special Day with my Sweetheart

Hinkley MN

Fair warning given.We went to dinner at the 50s Grill and saw Die Hard 2 for our second date.  A pretty basic date back then. Most of you may not know that we only had two dates. That’s all really needed to know. Just kidding, kind of. Actually Rory moved back to Albuquerque a week later. We met while working at Campus Drug near UMN. After months of working together, and talking, we decided to try a date. We liked each other enough to try a second date. And then he had to move. We worked together on his last shift at Campus Drug. I scheduled it so we could take our break together. We took a walk around Dinkytown and he had the nerve to hold my hand! Yes there was chemistry but pointless since he was moving 1300 miles away, never to see each other again. Two dates do not count as dating. They are just 2 dates. But by some mys…
