i cannot even believe how understanding stampin'up! is about the present state of our economy. they've just informed us that, before sale-a-bration ends, there will be an option to join stampin' up! with three easy payments. you will pay your first installment payment and receive your starter kit to get started with your stampin' up! business and then you will be billed two other times to finish paying it off! isn't that fabulous?! i'm grateful for the extra money i've earned to help us pay for cat food here, dog food there, litter, gas, utility bills, or a gallon of milk when we've needed it. if you'd like to join my team, please leave me a message on this post and i'll contact you to help you get started! also, until 31 march 2009 you can also join stampin' up! for 15% off~you will be able to choose any stamp set from the spring/summer 2009 idea book and catalog(up to $47.95 value) with your starter kit and you will also receive one pack of watercolor wonder crayons from me( just let me know, after you've signed up, which color group you'd like)!
