A Difficult Decision

Hi friends! How are you today? I have some big, yet difficult news to share with you.

I have made the decision to quit my Stampin’ Up! business. Our large family needs me and as my wonderful team and business has grown, I have found that the time I am spending on my business takes too much time away from them. I have also found that I am unable to do all the things I want to do for my team and customers. You are all wonderful and I will miss you very much, but I am looking forward to devoting my time to my family.

My blog will not be going away, I still plan to post my creations, but my online store will no longer be available. If you would like a reference for a new demonstrator, please email me at stampin365@gmail.com and I will be happy to give you some suggestions. If you are in the Stamp of the Month Club, I will be emailing you in the next few days with specific details regarding your membership and the discontinuation of the Club.

I have loved my time as a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator and I have especially loved all of you. Thank you to my team members and everyone who has taken time to comment, ordered, been a part of the Stamp of the Month Club, and supported me. It has meant the world to me!

This is not really goodbye. I will still be a Stampin’ Up! customer and share my designs with you. I hope you continue to share in the joy with me! Thank you again for your support.


Happy stampin’ friends!

  1. I wish you the best future years ahead. I am proud that you chose family over crafting. Thanks for sharing your talent with us.

  2. Hi Michelle – I admire you for doing what you think you need to do. I’m sure it’s a mixed blessing , and I had to leave SU as a demonstrator because of financial reasons a few months back. I know it will feel a lot different, but I’m sure you still have a lot of SU friends to keep you updated and benefit from your ordering. That was difficult for me. So many things I love in SU stamps, so little money. Feels weird not to order big anymore, but I’ll get used to it. You are very talented, and I’m sure your family will love the extra time & energy on their behalf as well. I will continue to look forward to your cardmaking skills and your blog. Hope your son is fully recovered? And you have a WONDERFUL 2018.

  3. Michelle, I applaud your decision. There are only a certain number of years our children are in our home. When a mom realizes that her family needs her more than her job allows, I always greatly respect the decision in favor of the family. Also, you look absolutely fabulous, and I hardly ever use that word! I am so proud of you!

  4. I for one will miss you. Glad you’ll still show your work. Thanks for many good ideas, I do change them around a good bit. I’ve enjoyed your work.

  5. I’ve commented a couple times about how strong you were during your family’s illnesses and it takes a strong women to make the decision to leave instead of making do with less effort. Thank you for sharing your talent and time with us and I’ll still look forward to seeing your creations, especially your gorgeous tags. Enjoy your family….it’s the best decision to put them first.

  6. I know this has to be an incredibly hard thing to decide but the family trials over the last year have been tremendous and I fully understand your decision. Everything is about a time and a place and the time has come to do something else if for only a while. Best wishes to you and your family as you start a new phase in your life! Big hugs!

  7. Michelle best of luck in this new chapter of your life. Will look forward to continuing to read your blog and see the amazing creations that come from your craft room.
