I am sure that most of you have heard that I am no longer a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator. I would like to make one thing very clear right now… it is not because I am mad at Stampin’ Up! and I am not going to say they suck or anything like that. I still love them very much.
I just didn’t feel that I had the room to grow with Stampin’ Up! the way that I had always dreamed of growing. I am with another company now called A Muse Studio and I have grown much faster with them then I had with Stampin’ Up! in the last 7 years. That is not to say that it is same for you in your area. This was a personal thing. Plus with the new company I can do what I have always wanted and that is get certified for being a copics instructor. I have always loved copics and wanted to learn more about them and use them more. But since Stampin’ Up! doesn’t sell them I didn’t see it as a good business choice. Well A Muse Studio does sell them, so WOOHOO guess what I have been playing with!
Stampin’ Up! was very wonderful to me and helped me personally in many ways. One was helping me with my agoraphobia and getting through that so that I could actually leave my house. Granted I still have a lot of issues with it, but not as bad as I used to be and I am so very very thankful to them for that. I always will be. I miss Stampin’ Up! but I miss more of the friends and groups and events … that is about all that I miss.
My business wasn’t going where I wanted it to go with Stampin’ Up! and since this is the new catalog coming out this next month I figured that this was a good time to change. Plus I lost a lot of inventory so if I am going to build things back up might as well do it with the new company :)
The new company A Muse Studio is actually local to me here in the Seattle, Washington area. It is a lot of fun having them so close by and I have already made small relationships with them and with others through them. I am having a great time so far.
