Celebrating Mary

From the warm desert of Arizona to cold and snowy Utah, Mary and Scott arrived at Stampin’ Up! to an unexpected welcome and a cheering crowd to celebrate Mary’s Million-Milestone. 

The first thing I noticed when she walked in were Mary’s shoes. I don’t think I’ve ever seen her in heels, but these shoes were sassy and perfect for a celebration!

After lunch with members of Demonstrator Support, Mary got a sneak peek at some new product and worked with Kathy to design a stamp set—very cute idea (too bad we have to wait so long to see it)! And Scott toured Stampin’ Up!

Dinner was with corporate team members up Millcreek Canyon at the charming Log Haven.

The next day, Scott spent “golfing” indoors with corporate team members while Mary was pampered with a massage, facial, and a mani/pedi—something she definitely deserved after all her hard work!

Because it was so cold, plans were modified from a tour of Temple Square to a movie in a VIP theatre with Sara and Sean after dinner with the six of us at The Dodo.

Mary and Scott are delightful and genuinely good people. We felt honored to spend time with them, celebrating this sharp businesswoman and meticulous stamper who has built an unparalleled business and community of stampers! Even though the weather was cold, we hope Mary felt warmed by everyone’s hugs and congratulations!

Mary is such a wonderful encouragement to me of what hard work and determination can accomplish. She helped me build my confidence in starting an online business with Stampin' Up! and I love her business plan. Wonderful to see these pictures and see her celebrate her achievement.

Pampering is an understatement . . . this was one of the most luxurious and relaxing experiences of my life (and Scott's). Thank you Shelli, Sara and all those SU peeps that helped me on this journey and to make this such a special trip!

Mary is the best! She has been my up-line for more than 5 years. Stamping is a hobby for me. I have no customer base, but I retain my demonstrator title, quarter after quarter, because of Mary Fish and the on-line community she has created. Thank you and congratulations, Mary!

These pictures are amazing and showcase the joy that is Mary Fish. Thank you for taking such good care of her and Scott on this trip. I know she was blown away by the attention to every detail and every thoughtful gift you showered her with. She's a super-special woman, and I'm honored to be connected with her and you and this amazing company.

Congratulations, Mary, on your tremendous accomplishments. You inspired everyone from a hobby demo to those who are working towards the goal of being a top demonstrator like yourself. Your willingness to share information and encouragement are appreciated more than you know. To Sara, Shelli and the whole Stampin Up team, thank you for making the celebration of Mary's accomplishment so special.

The story of Stampin Up is awesome! Congratulations, Mary. I am a hobby demo and I love what I create to add sunshine to someone's day. May many others earn this recognition. So proud to be a part of Mary's team.

What can I say about this woman? She is amazing! The most giving, dedicated and hard-working (does she ever sleep?) demo on the planet.

I hope you took two days to relax and enjoy the pampering you SO deserve. I wish you could get more! You are an inspiration to your entire team on a daily basis and I am so honored to work for you and more importantly, be your family. Love you, Mary!

Mary is a fantastic stamper and a wonderful leader. My decision to join under the person I signed up under was partly because I would be in Mary's Pals. Thanks for making a special lady feel special and pampered! She deserved it!

Mary has been such an inspiration to me. She is such a kind and genuine person. I'm so happy to see the photos of her well deserved pampering by the fabulous Stampin' Up! Family! I can't wait for the stamp set release!

I'm so proud of Mary and all of her accomplishments at SU! She spoils her group so it is so awesome to see her get spoiled. She is a great leader and earned that million in sales through running a highly ethical, truly caring business. Way to go Mary and way to go STAMPIN'UP for such a fabulous weekend for her and Scott! And those shoes.... can we please get some DSP to match? Pretty please????

When I joined Stampin Up, I did so thinking that I would only be there for a short time. But being in the "Pals" has given me more inspiration and creativity that I didn't realize that I had. It is an honor for me to be part of her group! Congratulations Mary!! You know that all us Pals are excited for you, and excited that we are part of your journey!!
