Congratulations to Connie

Connie Fitzgerald (our recent one million sales achiever) and her husband Kerry arrived in Utah just in time for a Lindsey Stirling concert. The next morning they were greeted in Riverton by the Stampin’ Up! family before working on a stamp set, touring the facility, and spending time with employees in different departments.

Then Kerry went golfing with corporate team members while Connie stamped with Sara and me. We loved getting to know Connie and wish we could clone her humble and grateful heart. One of the things she talked about was that in nearly twenty years of being a demonstrator she has never thought negatively about doing an event…not once! Then finished with, “Who gets to say that?” Connie is an amazing person who truly loves what she does!

That evening was spent with other corporate team members at Red Iguana for dinner. The next day Connie and Kerry relaxed and walked around Salt Lake City, and Sara, Sean, Sterling and I were honored to have dinner with them at Copper Onion.

I think if you asked Connie what the highlight of her trip was, she would probably say it was her Dig This Experience, where she actually operated an excavator—complete with her very own Stampin’ Up! hard hat. Kerry helped plan this special surprise that had been a dream of Connie’s for years.

Connie and Kerry are two of the nicest people you’ll ever meet, and we thoroughly enjoyed surprising and delighting them as well as visiting with them! Congratulations to Connie!
