Good morning! I know lots of my readers and followers are fellow demonstrators – did you know that this week has been nominated as “Demonstrator Support Appreciation Week”?
Demonstrator Support are the staff at the Stampin’ Up! offices around the world that help us to be a seamless part of the company. They are the Angels on the other end of the phone or email that help us when we have questions or when things go wrong. Not everyone can claim to have the best boss in the world, but when you call or email DS (as they are affectionately known), there’s nothing but kindness at the other end. Their patience is unlimited, they are super knowledgeable and they always know how to help! So, a big shout out to Clare, Ana, Mel, Natalie and Jess for being awesome!
To me, feeling supported as a demonstrator is also due to the hard work of the behind the scenes staff. So, thanks to Aaron (Business Development Manager), Jeanette Woods (Events Coordinator) and Donna Williams (Marketing & Training Coordinator) in the Australian office and Emma Parkin-Wilson (NZ Manager) and Lesley Winstanley (Emma’s lovely assistant) in the office across the waters.
To show our appreciation, quite a number of demos have organised thank yous to keep the South Pacific Stampin’ Up! staff smiling all week. There’s been chocolates, balloons and morning teas so far. I wonder what else the week will hold??? You can see all the updates on the Stampin’ Up! South Pacific Facebook page.
I heard yesterday that my care package arrived safely, so I can now share it with you here.
For the team in Sydney, I made personalised post-it note pads. Post-it notes are a must for me at work, so I thought they might come in handy for the DS staff too.
After seeing all the amazing treats that have been delivered, my calorie-free option may be a good balance!
We all know that a gift isn’t complete without a card…
What starts off looking like a simple card is actually (what I’m calling) an impossible puzzle shaker card.
The letters all line up with the background to spell out thanks. But I’m wondering if anyone in the office will be able to get them all back into place…???
The negatives from the shaker card made a beautiful & elegant card which I sent off to the Stampin’ Up! head office in the States.
If you’d like to join the fun and send a card or gift to either the South Pacific or US Stampin’ Up! office, these are the contact details…
