Scrimpy's back .... reality and back to work

Hello my lovely ladies and gents..did you miss me. I have been a.w.a.l for just over two weeks away on holiday with my family in the lovely Caribbean. We had a wonderful time so thought for a change instead of cards I would share some photos of my holiday ... . We went to Barbados, Aruba, Bon aire and lots of other destinations . We ate far too much, were extremely lazy and just had some quality family time. My husband owns an engineering firm and whilst I stay home I work practically full time hours too so this was a great rest for us both.


back to work today and lots of planning ahead to do. I was excited to receive my silver elite certificate whilst I was away. I also received what I call Pootle mail. This is rewards from my direct up line who rewards for top recruiting and sales. I did fairly well February was a good month for me with lots of ladies joining my team and so I was 3rd top recruiter...as Sam Hammond herself was number one I feel this was a big achievement. I was seventh top for sales this month which is great when so many are in the larger team. I think rewards are great we all like to know we are on track and doing well and I reward my own team too for reaching milestones and send them small gifts inspired very much by how my spline rewards me.


I have lots in the pipeline this month I have two workshops booked in at Samaflora an arts and crafts retail outlet in Dewsbury West Yorkshire which boasts a lovely light and airy training room. These will be recurring on a fortnightly basis and I'm super excited to get started I will be widely publicising the events so if you wish to attend just let me know. I also have plans for doing some online classes and also to go with this blog post is my new monthly Stampin' Up! vlog on Youtube.

The idea of the vlog is to be a viewable monthly newsletter for customers or prospective customers. I love to share and feel that involving everyone can only make me even more accessible. A face to face video is always nice touch even just for those who like to watch my videos and don't necessarily purchase goods. Plus I do like to ramble and chat ...... so first Monday of every month will be vlog day. I hope you enjoy it and would love any comments or feedback on what you would like to see. Also don't forget you can share your work with me on either of my groups on Facebook special created for crafters to share their work.
