Here we go!

April 22, 2021
Hello and Welcome to my new Website.

I removed my old blog as I wanted my website to be hosted by a Canadian company since I live in Canada.

I wanted to reintroduce myself to those who may not know me and introduce my blog. I thought I would share a blog post from when I first started blogging and share if or how things have changed.

This blog post is from November 2011. Please take a look and then read to the end of this post to see how things are now in 2021 and how things have changed.

Homework Complete

Today was a very quiet day. I dropped my phone on the driveway and it smashed. So if you were trying to reach me today my phone said I was unavailable. Really, I was just clutzy and in need of a new phone.
I took the "quiet" time to spend some time scrapbooking. The great thing about my job is that I can combine my "to do" list with doing things I love.
I received a special invitation from Stampin' Up! to participate in a program. I was very honoured to be selected and I get to be in the program for 3 months. My homework this past week was to email "My Why" statement.
Yes, they said statement. First of all I couldn't describe why I am a Stampin' Up! demonstrator in one statement. Secondly, I wanted to scrapbook my participation in this program, beginning with my first assignment.

The tags can all be taken out and this is what they look like.

Some of the tags have words on both sides. I really enjoyed going through the catalogue and finding stamps that help to describe My Why.
I started selling Stampin' Up! for the discount but now I have so many reasons why I do this. My phone is working again! Woohoo!

Fast forward to April 15, 2021 and here we are. I am still clutzy, (sporting a new bruise on my arm) still love scrapbooking, and still a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator. I am proud to say, I have been a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator since July 27, 2009.
My Why’s (Why I love being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator are still the same)
1. For the Discount
2. The Stampin’ Up! Catalogues inspire me to be creative.
3. The techniques we learn are amazing.
4. I love using quality products by Stampin’ Up!
5. I especially like sharing my love for crafting.
6. I meet friends from all over the world.
7. The gifts and cards bring so many smiles to myself and others.
8. To be able to Create something everyday.
9. The opportunity to travel (not during this pandemic but it will again soon)
10. Just because…….it give me purpose.
I hope you enjoyed reading my little blast from the past as much as I did. I need to find where I put that scrapbook page now. Organization….now that’s another story. Come back often to see what’s new in the Craft D Cave!
Bear Hugs,
Denise Donald
