After being a demonstrator for nearly three years I have come to a fabulous realization, Stampin' Up! causes one to decorate! I have always been HUGE into decorating for the seasons anyways, but since becoming a demonstrator I have added a new type of decorations, the Stampin' Up! ones! Year after year I create class samples and project ideas that end up adding to my seasonal decorations. I love it! This year I have my NOEL blocks from 2009 and my Village of Cuteness from 2011 Convention on a shelf in my kitchen. I also have my 2009 Advent Calendar displayed as well as many other much loved projects of the past three years. A decorated house at Christmas, what a lovely side effect of being a demonstrator!
