Stampin' Up! Encourages Adopting a Hobby

Connecting with others and emotionally riding out the recession can be as simple as finding a new hobby

SALT LAKE CITY--Imagine a gathering of new and old friends surrounded by stacks of colorful paper, a scattering of ribbons and buttons, and a few sets of rubber stamps with creative designs and inspiring sentiments. This scenario of friends crafting together and enjoying a fun hobby may just be the ticket to relieving stress and helping people "get connected" during these tough economic times. During the month of April, Stampin' Up! is encouraging people to relieve their stress and connect with others by learning a new hobby, such as card making or scrapbooking.
For 20 years, Stampin' Up!, a direct-sales company offering an exclusive line of award-winning decorative stamp sets and accessories for greeting cards, scrapbooking, craft projects and home décor has helped awaken passions, develop talents and connect thousands of people simply by sharing its philosophy and mission statement "To love what we do and share what we love, as we help other enjoy creativity and worthwhile accomplishments."
This same philosophy of getting connected with others is shared by more than 40,000 Stampin' Up! independent demonstrators who have taken their passion for the hobby of card making and scrapbooking and turned it into a career, not only providing extra income, but a vast social network that they can turn to for emotional support during hard times and laughter during the best of times.
Julie Tonsager has been a Stampin' Up! independent consultant or "demonstrator" for almost 11 years, and joined because she loved creating handmade projects, but has stayed because of the connection with others. "Everyone wants to feel a part of something, and when you join Stampin' Up! you join a family that will pick you up during a tough time," says Tonsager. "It is priceless, you can't pay for it and without this business I wouldn't have this connection."
