What a wonderful surprise from my Stampin' Up "upline"

Look at what arrived at my door yesterday! These gorgeous flowers. What an extremely thoughtful gesture from my upline's, upline's, upline, Mary Polcin!
You see in Stampin' Up you are under someone who is your upline. I don't hear from my upline or her upline but their upline Mary Polcin, honored me with these gorgeous flowers. They look even prettier in person. I also found out from her that besides earning Rising Start #2, that I was #56 Top Demonstrator in the Company. I am not even sure what all of this means or what criteria they used. It was not just sales but all around doing some other achievements along with it. All of this came as a shock to me as I was not even aware of these types of awards. Then found out we get a huge bonus. I called to see if it was a mistake but it wasn't. They are soooo generous and sent a cash bonus for both Rising Star and Top Demonstrator's Awards. All of this and my trip to Utah and my Cruise to Alaska and to think I just started out as a hobbyist to get the discount!! Oh my, oh my!! I felt like Queen for the Day!
I was just "playing" before, now I really need to WORK!
