Join Me on My Journey to $1 Million


I have exciting news to share with you today!  I’m narrowing the gap of reaching $1 million in personal sales since my Stampin’ Up! career began in September, 2007.  I’m projected to be the 14th demonstrator ever to do that.  For someone who was adamant that I was joining simply for fun and discounts, this is an enormous milestone for me!

I invite you to join me on my journey as I periodically share updates on my blog with my progress and will be sharing the details of the customer who puts me over the $1 million mark.  I had a phone conference this week with Sara Douglass (Stampin’ Up! CEO) and her team to discuss the special trip they are planning for my  husband and me to Salt Lake City (lots of spa time, please) along with other cash and product bonuses!

If you would like to leave me a “virtual high five,” you can comment HERE.  I would love your support as I rally forward!

A BIG THANK YOU!  I’m so grateful to Stampin’ Up!, my customers and demonstrator friends (a huge shout out to my Stampin’ Pretty Pals Community) as well as those who follow and support me each day on my blog.  My administrative assistant, Kris Kilcoyne, has been my right arm for most of this journey and has been crucial to my success!  Many of you have been around since my “early days,” over 3600 Stampin’ Pretty blog posts ago.  This has been such an incredible and fulfilling creative and business venture.  I never imagined it would blossom the way it has.

  70. Barbara Bowden

    Congratulations Mary. I don’t know of anyone else that deserves this honor more then you.

  71. I am so excited for you, Mary. I have followed your posts for a very long time and knew right away that you were going to “make it BIG.” I remember messaging you once to see if you knew my friend and upline because she was a rising star. I was surprised that you didn’t know her, but that was very early in your career. I have been a demo this entire time, but am just a hobbyist and have to make my own minimums or I would certainly be a customer of yours. It is clear that your customers love you and we all enjoy the way you share what you love with us. May your reward come sooner than you had hoped!!

  72. Congratulations Mary! Wow, what an accomplishment. You are truly an inspiration to me. I’m so excited for you…All the best.

  73. Robbye Hamilton

    I have a feeling that I’ll be raising a congratulatory glass of champagne in your honor before year’s end. You have worked hard since “joining for the discount” back in 2007 and you deserve all that will comes along with this accomplishment. You are a shining example of what hard work and determination can accomplish. I can’t wait to order and use your stamp set.

  74. Mary—I am pulling for you!!! Am working on an order to send in soon. Trying to decide just what I want to do for my Christmas cards…SO much to choose from! You are a wonderful business woman and know how to “spend money to make money” and keep your customers happy and equipped with catalogues. To see is to buy! I wish you a speedy trip to that Million dollar mark and will be watching for the announcement!!! Go get ’em!!!

  75. Smiling with all these kind words! I appreciate your support so much!

  76. Glenda Lehrmann

    Mary, a big high five to you for all your hard work!!!! I so enjoy your blog, creativity, willingness to share your tips and tricks, and your 1 minute to wow videos! I have been following you since you lived in Wisconsin; I consider you one of my mentors for organization, style, and you were the first to tell your blog readers that “I am a card maker not a scrapbooker”! I finally knew who I was in the crafting world, I can’t wait for you to reach $1 million in sales.

  77. Diana Haycock

    Well done. I live in New Zealand and check in on your site every day. Wish you lived round the corner from me. I would definitely help you reach your $1 million. I just love all your cards. Your style is so elegant. Good luck. Kind regards, Diana Haycock

Congratulations and thanks for your daily email announcements concerning the happenings with “Stampin Up” and the catalogs which are so helpful in choosing projects to work on. After recovering from cancer two times, I was led to doing artsy paper crafts, journaling and collage work. This helped me transition from working in real estate for 45 years to enjoying the art of creativity which I demonstrated in my field but discovered I could also develop another talent I really didn’t know I had. Thanks to much of your demonstrations, emails, etc. etc. I’m learning more!!!

  113. Wow! What a great accomplishment for you! I love your style of cards and projects and get a lot of inspiration from then daily.. You’ll make this goal and go far beyond with your hard work and talent. I’ll be waiting to hear the updates on your progress. Have a great day!

    I think I met you right around 2007, I remember because I picked you as my SU demonstrator due to the fact that you lived in Madison, WI. at the time and that is the beautiful city where I did my very first Iron Man Triathlon.
    Since then, I have enjoyed your blog every day, your cards and videos and being your customer so much, you have always been a warm and helpful friend to me.
    Congratulations again, this award couldn’t happen to a sweeter person.
