No stamping in today's post, but definitely stamping-related.

Wow! Wow! Wow! I just got the hugest surprise of my life when this amazing box was delivered.

I quite literally have never received anything like this in my life (and made the poor delivery lady check to see if she got the right house!). Even the kids were speechless for a few seconds.

And inside was the most incredible display of roses, lilies and chocolates. And you wouldn't believe who they were from…


… the team at Stampin' Up!


Inside was a beautiful note recognising a promotion I had last month, but I was a bit teary so it took a while to read it properly. lol

Just want to say – again – what an amazing company Stampin' Up! is. The Demonstrator Support girls are so thoughtful, they love cheering us on and really look after their demonstrators!

A HUGE and very heartfelt thanks to our Stampin' Up! South Pacific team.

It's been an amazing and very fun 4 years & 11 months and I can't wait to see where the next few years will take us.
