While I may not have the accessories of a Princess, I am treated as royalty by my Prince.
Below is a picture of my husband, Jim, patiently embossing backgrounds for me for some of my swap cards…isn't that sweet? It's the first year that he's offered — yes offered — to help me get ready for Convention. The poor man stamped, sponged and embossed for an entire weekend!
I wonder if the golf game on t.v. had anything to do with his extraordinary patience….nah, he's just one of the good guys.
I met another special spouse at Convention. This smiling man was standing all by himself, swap cards in hand. He was not a demonstrator, which I guessed from his t-shirt, which reads "My wife scrapbooks, therefore…I am broke!"
When I talked with him, he said his wife was taking a break while he was patiently swapping for her. How about that for a prince!
And you won't believe how many swap cards he had to swap — 3,000! That's the most I have ever heard of for any convention attendee…and considering there were 2,800 attendees this year, I think maybe Prince Spouse went home with some cards unswapped.
Still, kudos to him for being so supportive.
I certainly have found that spouses are increasingly supportive as the profits from a Stampin' Up! business increase…funny how that works! Perhaps your spouse would be interested in supporting you in a business that brings extra money into the household. I'd love to explore that very real possibility with you, so email or call me to arrange a time where we can chat about it.
Before I wrap up for today, here's one of the cards I was swapping at Convention — this is the design that Jim embossed for me.
