There are enough of us now working a Card Ministry from our kitchen tables, I formed this Society for all of us to stay connected. My hope is that once a year we can go on Retreat together and be refreshed, share ideas, share card designs, share how we have sent a card that arrived at “just the right time.” Share your favorite materials and sources and ideas!

Zig Ziglar is quoted as having said “84% of people are hurting in some way,” so there are always reasons to send Happy Mail. Let your morning prayer and meditation time lead you to write down the names that come to mind. Random Acts of Kindness led me to name my Kitchen Table Ministry cards “Keepsakes of Kindness.” We keep those cards and letters forever, don’t we?

So, Why the Dandelion?

Just as you can blow on the seeds of a dandelion head and see them swirl and travel on the wind, our cards twirl and whirl through the mail to land in someone else’s mailbox and plant seeds of kindness. It’s been a fun logo to create on envelopes, in letterheads, and now as a wax seal.

I’ve written all about JOURNALING SCRIPTURE on THIS PAGE. That was a “tipping point” experience as I went to work building Celia’s Paper Garden into a classroom teaching people how to bless others with greeting cards. Not just any cards. I developed a proven method for making four cards in thirty minutes, and they are clean and elegant. I created an Online Class in 2022 called “4 Cards in 30 Minutes” to teach how to cut your card stock for several favorite card sketches. I don’t keep scraps, so I teach how to cut and avoid scraps altogether.

The Dandelion Society as a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator: Thank you for reading this far! I have sponsored several Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators who want a new way of benefiting from their discount. If things were drastically different, would you like to run your own Kitchen Table Ministry?.

Let’s embrace the new! Isaiah 43:18-19 says, “Do not call to mind the former things, or ponder things of the past. Behold, I will do something new, now it will spring forth. Will you not be aware of it? I will even make a roadway in the wilderness, rivers in the desert.”

Were you a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator before? If things could be different this time, would you consider coming back? I’d like to talk with you. I especially want to show you how to operate in the black, never using household monies being your own best customer.

I will train you to be a part of Stampin’ Up! as an Independent Demonstrator, and using your business opportunity completely differently. Thus, the reference to Isaiah 43 — we will be doing a new thing! If you’ve been a Demonstrator in the past and want a new way, no pressure, where you’re never taking money from your family income, let’s about making and sending cards.
