A NEW JOURNEY starts with change!

A New Journey!

This week and this year I would have celebrated 11 years as a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator and over 10 years of blogging!  CRAZY!

Yesterday was my last day as a SU Demonstrator and today I start my new journey as a Coach!  A Fun Stampers Journey Coach!

11 years.  Can you believe that? I have never done anything for 11 years— except stay married and keep my kids!!! Some of you have been with me since day 1. During these years, I’ve exclusively featured Stampin’ Up! products.  Now, I will continue to create, blog and share my passion for stamping and paper crafting with you, just the brand and colors will change to FSJ.

Why the change?  I have been struggling the past few years. You probably have noticed through my infrequent blog posts and emails.   I thought it was because I was busy, but truthfully I lost my drive and happiness with Stampin Up! (especially all the changes they have made)   What do you do when you are no longer happy?  You make a change.  Change is hard and change is good.  I am very excited about this opportunity and all that lies ahead! 

My goal is to continue to provide you with the all the cute projects and inspiration!!   Thank you for 11 wonderful years of amazing friendships and I’m looking forward to my new journey with you!

NOTE: My shopping and catalog links will be updating starting today.  I have some learning to do to get there so please be patient.    I also plan to have a consistent blogging schedule of every other day!!!

    Well good luck, my dear. A dear friend of mine is a FSJ coach — Chelsea from Chicago area. Hope you get to meet her…She's a human dynamo — fantastic talent and always up. She was with me at The Angel Company and also at A Muse Studio — both those companies went by. TAC went bankrupt and A Muse Studio's owner took the company to an on line store and left us demonstrators out in the cold. Disgusting. You're so talented and so dear. God bless and happy stamping — Hugs, Syl xxxooo

    You will be truly missed. Sorry the changes caused such unhappiness. It forced me to try harder and after 21 years I have had my first 100,000 year and best recruiting year ever. We all react differently to change and stress and unhappiness and I hope you find what you are looking for with FSJ. Good luck. Friends always.

    Jill, welcome to the journey! It's great to have you with us at FSJ. Reading your post, I completely understand where you are coming from and went through similar trials. We don't know each other but wanted you to know I support you and know you have a stamping FSJ friend in me.
