Change to Stampin'Up!'s Policy

Crafters -

As many of you know, I just rejoined Stampin'Up! after waiting six months (their rules, not mine). Believe me, every time I called them, emailed them or had contact with them, I let them know that I thought six months was a little long. Everyone does things for different reasons, and I won't get into all of that right now, but sometimes changes need to be made.

Well, Stampin'Up! listens to their demonstrators (I'm confident I'm not the only one who contacted them about this). They are changing the 6-month waiting period to just 90-days! While this didn't help me, because it was not effective until this month, it may help someone else.

There is not a card or creative post today. We worked on 5-yards of mulch this evening. Team Stock completed it within 6 hours! And I'm a little tired...  :)  But in a good way. I'll be back at crafting tomorrow - remember the old catalog ends on the 31st. You have but a week to order from the retired lists. Here's what five-yards of mulch looks like in the driveway in the early afternoon.
Five cubic yards of mulch.
When it was delivered, I thought... that doesn't seem like very much.
My body is now telling me that it WAS very much!  :)
And here's what it looks like after dark! But it is DONE!!!! Thanks so much to my wonderful husband for all the help with it. Isn't it nice to have help?
And it is all gone!
YEAH TEAM STOCK!!!!

Jobs and chores just seem to go faster when you are working WITH someone, huh? Crafting time just SPEEDS by when I'm with my friends. How about you?


Then the Lord God said,
“It is not good for the man to be alone.
I will make a helper who is just right for him.”
- Genesis 2:18 (New Living Translation)


Alrighty then, onto the statement from Stampin'Up! If you are a former demonstrator or thinking about changing your upline for whatever reason, here's what Stampin'Up! listed:

Change to Rejoin Policy

May 22, 2012
We regularly evaluate our demonstrator policies, and review your feedback on how they impact you and your businesses. We have recently reviewed several policies based on feedback, and would like to announce a change to our rejoin policy that became effective May 1, 2012 

The previous rejoin policy states that, once a demonstrator drops, she can either sign up again immediately under the same upline (if that upline is active), or wait six months and sign up under a new upline. The change, effective May 1, is that now a demonstrator must only wait 90 days from her effective drop date before signing up under a new upline. The effective drop date is the last day of the month in which she resigns, or the last day of the pending month if she fails to meet her quarterly minimum.

The purpose of this change is to reduce a barrier to returning to Stampin' Up! once a demonstrator has dropped. We recognize that many circumstances can contribute to a demonstrator deciding to drop or resign her business with Stampin' Up!, and there may be legitimate reasons for a demonstrator to join a new downline group. While we want to accommodate these demonstrators' needs, we still need to protect the stability of an upline's business, therefore in addition to the 90-day waiting period, sales history, downline, and title cannot be restored when a demonstrator is dropped and rejoins, and she will be considered a brand new demonstrator.

Over the next couple of months, we will announce a few more changes in policy designed to make your business a little easier, so stay tuned!
