Last Saturday, while I was on Oahu with Mr. Maui Stamper, my phone blew up with messages from my downline Cheryl and my upline Crystal. Shelli and Sterling Gardner were on Maui and wanted to meet with Maui demonstrators!! You can imagine our excitement – and tonight, the magic really happened:
This is our family tree: Crystal (left) is my upline, with Sterling, Shelli, yours truly, and Cheryl, my downline. Cheryl is the real celebrity in the group as she’s earned the Alaska Incentive trip this year – we are all really proud of her! Shelli joked that I was the Momma and Crystal was the Grandma. If only she knew…
Cheryl worked really hard to make the evening a wonderful event for her team, the Maui Big Shots. Crystal and I felt so honored to be included! Sterling and Shelli are such genuine and warm people, and it was a lovely evening of conversation and great food.
There was a gift bag of Maui goodies for the Gardners, and we’re all wondering how they’re going to get it home – it ended up kind of heavy! They were so gracious about spending their vacation time with us, and let us pepper them with questions (Why do you retire things we love? What is Sterling’s Stampin’ Up! story? Tell us about the 30th anniversary celebration in Orlando!!)
It was a lovely evening, one we’ll all remember and treasure as a highlight of our Stampin’ Up! careers. A hui hou, Shelli and Sterling – until we meet again.
