A Vintage Thank You for Shelli Gardner | International Blog Highlights - November 2018

Shelli, you are such a blessing to me and so many other people who have been able to fulfill our dreams because you had a dream 30 years ago...

If you had not had the courage to act upon your dream, so many others before me would not have been able to fulfill their dreams.  The road has not been easy for you and you have made many sacrifices and overcome quite a few hurdles.  Your dream to help others to become better has been so amazing.

This company, Stampin' Up!®, that I am finally able to say that I am proud to be intertwined with as an Independent Demonstrator is having a wonderful gathering in Orlando and other local venues around the world this week.  You probably did not envision this company being worldwide when you acted upon your dream. 

But because you did have a dream that is now an international sensation, I am hopping on an airplane tonight with my wonderful upline to fly to Orlando to meet some of my amazing  international friends whom I feel like we've known each other for ages.  Because of you, I finally get to hug these lovely friends and will hopefully be able to share this wonderful feeling many more times as this incredible company continues to flourish under your guidance and the dreams of your daughter, Sara.

Thank you for acting upon your dream and passing along your dream to the next generation.  I am looking forward to see what the next thirty years hold!  God bless you, Shelli!

P.S.  If you happen to be in Orlando this week vs one of the other venues...  please look for me... I'll be one of the thousands smiling from ear to ear, but I'll stand out as I'll be wearing pearls.  (((HUGS))) to you, Shelli!
