Good morning again, y’all!  I just wanted to send a quick….

Yesterday was a big day for me.  I’d gotten the UPS text the day prior saying to expect something from Morris Meetings – they’re our travel agency for SU! Incentive Trips!

So…I was on pins-and-needles.  And…of course…it was the day UPS didn’t deliver until after 8pm.  I’d actually decided they were going to skip me and make me wait another day!

But then….the text came and Finny and I were on the way to the gate!

Not gonna lie – did a little happy-dance when I pulled it out of the bag!

I pushed that golf cart to the limit – yes, we sped along at the high rate of 3 mph! – and got back to the house lickety split.  Figured it would be nice for Wayne and I to open it together!  Considering…

Lookee what was inside…

And THAT contained a really nice leather wallet – with lots of room for business cards and credit cards and probably even our passports!


Inside was our flight information – we leave on 3 July (Wayne was like…wait, what?? – that’s like…SOON!) and will be home on the 14th.  We’ve got a few days planned with Amy and her family in Rome ahead of the cruise (and our Russian son Igor will be joining us for that bit!).  We also found our name tags and holders – which are handy for holding our Royal Caribbean door key (see?  we’re like old-hands now, we know what to expect!).  And leather luggage tags.

And of course – the day-by-day schedule.  When we’re at-sea and when there are SU! meetings (where we’ll get to see the new goodies for the holidays!) and when the parties happen!

That one deserves a little more perusing and ooh-ing and aahing, I think!

Anywho – just wanted to share.  And to say THANK YOU all again!  Stampin’ Up! makes these wonderful incentive trips available for any and all Demonstrators to earn!  I absolutely positively could not have made it without y’all!  I appreciate each and every one of you so much!

As they say in Greece  – efharisto!





P.S.  Interested in Joining My Team?  Maybe earning an Incentive Trip of Your Own?  I think you should look into it – even if having a business or earning a trip “isn’t your thing” – the benefits of being a demonstrator are many!  Like…20-25% off everything you buy!  A wonderful Starter Kit filled with SU! products that YOU select – with free shipping and a huge savings to you!  Potential for extra income – could even fund your “habit”! See new catalogs – and get to get new goodies in your hands – before everyone else.  And – of course, no commitment whatsoever!  I welcome hobbyists and business demos alike in the Critters-N-Creatin’ Krew!  Check out the deets right here – and let’s get you started!

    Yippee….you are so deserving of winning this trip Mary. You and Wayne both are so deserving of this wonderful trip. I know a lot of hard work goes into all of what you do, as well as being a little bit of an enabler!!!! Hahaha 🙂 After 45 years of marriage I know what it is like to have a very supportive spouse and yours sure is. Love the pic of him cutting ribbon…… 🙂 Enjoy your well earned vacation!!!!

    • stampsnlingers

      Yep – he does! There’s some grumbling at times – but…hey. Y-chromosome. He can’t help it very much! And – he works and helps even as he grumbles, so….OPA!!! Thanks, Rosalie! 🙂
