Happy 9 Year Blog-o-Versary to PattyStamps.com

 

9 year blog anniversary pattystamps

I'm taking a moment today to thank all of you who have hung out here with me on my blog at PattyStamps.com for the last 9 years, or maybe you have found me recently... either way, Thank You for your kind comments, feedback, Stampin' UP! purchases and support of my Stampin' Up! business!

Over the last 9 years I've enjoyed sharing:

  • over 3,300 blog posts with you
  • reading over 29,000 comments from you
  • being blessed by nearly 11,000,000 (yes 11 million) views on my blog
  • giving away about 70 blog candy prize packages
  • sharing over 200 videos with you
  • sharing our family vacations and milestones
  • and sharing countless stamping tips and ideas with you!

I've shared this story before, but you may have missed it.. the initial reason I started blogging was because I missed the daily phone calls from my mom.  She passed away almost 10 years ago, and she called me nearly every day at 5pm.  We'd talk about the day, she always wanted to know about everything we were doing.  She was the BEST listener!!   When she was gone, I felt such a void.. I felt like I had nobody to share my day with.. so.. I started my blog and shared what I was doing.  Little did I know I would be blessed with so many friends all over the country and the world who read my posts and share their day and crafting experiences with me!! 

So THANK YOU for sharing my journey and CHEERS to many more years ahead!!

I've certainly come a LONG way with my stamping projects, my photography skills and the tips and information I've shared with you... if you'd like to view some of those earlier blog posts, click here to see my first few blog posts !

Patty's Countdown to One Million Dollars in Sales!

 

Countdown-one-million-dollars-pattystamps

I have such exciting news to share with you!!!  Thanks to YOU my amazing customers, I have been inching closer and closer to reaching ONE MILLION DOLLARS in personal sales with Stampin' Up!

How incredible and amazing is that?!  and what a blessing!  20 years ago when I started this journey with Stampin' Up!, my goal was to share my love of stamping with others, and just maintain my monthly or quarterly minimum sales to stay active.  Over the last 6 to 8 years, my business has really grown, thanks to reaching more of you through Patty's Stamping Spot.. my blog.

I am getting closer to reaching my 1st million in personal sales and I will join the ranks of the 8 amazing Stampin' Up! demonstrators who have already achieved this milestone!!  It might happen this month, or sometime in October. I am watching my numbers and getting very excited!

When we reach that goal, I will have some fun PRIZES to give away to the people who place the orders to push me over the edge to that million dollars in sales plus 2 random winners who place an order between now and that day!

One-million-dollars-pattystamps-stampin-up-prizes

What do you think.. does it sound like a fun celebration!?  Whohoo!! I think so!

I'll be keeping you updated as we get closer.  I am so excited!! 

THANK YOU to everyone who has supported my business... I am grateful to you all!

"No Contact" NOTE:  If you select the option for "no contact from your demonstrator" on your order, you are not eligible to win any of these prizes, because your contact information will remain anonymous to me.  SEE THIS POST for directions to change your preference to allow me to see who you are :)

(and yes.. there were already 2 "no contact" orders today.. makes me so sad I can't send you a card and catalogs!!)
