If you follow Stampin' Up! in the same fanatical way that I and many others do, you will know that the CEO and co-founder of the company is Shelli, and Shelli is married to Sterling. Perhaps, like my Aunty Mary (*waving* Aunty Mair!) you even know all the family's names by heart and upon receiving a copy of the new catalogue, turn not to the sections bulging with new stamps, papers and accessories, but to the family photo in the front to see how everybody has grown and changed!
But that's a whole other story...
Back to Sterling. Imagine my surprise when I received a phone call around half an hour ago from a fellow with an American accent introducing himself as Sterling. Actually nevermind my surprise, imagine my heart rate!
Turns out that the Sterling in question lives a few streets from here and had been delivered, along with some packages addressed to him, one that was meant to be delivered to me, containing none other than a stack of catalogues and other things that I ordered specifically for my catalogue launch workshops this coming weekend! How's that for an amazing coincidence?
Well I thought it was pretty amazing, after I picked myself up off the floor and regained my composure :)
Speaking of my catalogue launch workshops, I still have a place left this Friday evening and now only two on Sunday afternoon. And now I am ALSO assured of having enough catalogues for everybody thanks to Sterling!
I am having SO much fun putting together the goodies for the workshops - they're going to be a blast! Contact me asap if you'd like to be included.
