Me, Kim Assaly winner of Shelli’s recruiting challenge!? I still can’t believe it!


The cat is out of the bag!  Yes it has been a very emotional week for me.  I was a little sick two weekends ago and had to miss a stampin event to rest. (Which I never do) I always bring my daughter Megan skating in Montreal ( 1hrs drive to and 1hrs back) for skating on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Sundays.  It is her passion!  Since I had been sick, my husband offered to take her last Wednesday so I could rest.  Well it was the best thing I ever done.  At 8h17pm eastern time, I received a call from my new SAM, Becky. She said guess what! Kim Assaly, you have won Shelli’s challenge!! I almost fell of the sofa!

Sorry Josee and all the others  who called or emailed to see if I had won the challenge, but I was told I couldn’t share my news or else… lol Actually I didn’t lie because everyone who contacted me asked if Shelli called, and she didn’t but my SAM did with this unbelievable news.  So it wasn’t a lie! Right!

If you would have seen me, I was pacing in the house.  I think I told her about 20 times really really.  I was shaking.  The bug I had caught during the weekend was over.  I was recharged.  Full of energy.  So fully recharged that I had trouble sleeping that very night.  Then everything made sense to me.

On January 31st, when the challenge finished, I had recruited 6, my goal was 10.  I still do have a few potential recruits but didn’t want to pressure anyone.   When the time is right, they will sign up!  On February 1st, I woke up at 6am ( I usually have trouble getting out of bed in the morning, I’m an night owl.) with one thing on my mind:  I had won the challenge…  Then I said to myself it can’t be true.  I had spoken to one demonstrator who said she knew a few that had recruited 8.  So my  chances were over.  That is what I taught then.  Surprise!  My vision from February 1st  told me that I had won this challenge and I did.  Now that I think of it, it is kind of freeky… 

Anyway I couldn’t tell a soul except my SAM said I could share with my husband.  So I called him on his cell and said babe I have a secret to share but you can’t tell anyone.  Then I paused and started crying.  Which scared the jeepers out of him.  He taught it was bad news.  Then I said chéri, I won the recruiting challenge, Shelli Gardner, co-founder and CEO of Stampin’Up! is coming home.  He was so proud of me,  had a few tears…  (sorry for sharing honey)  A sensitive man is very sexxy!  He got home and kissed me and I knew and felt he was truly proud of me.  It was a very emotional time!

It’s been a week now, I think I called my SAM probably three times,  Sorry Becky,  wanting more details which I didn’t receive yet.  They were waiting to post the information on the site.  Longest week everrrrrrrrr.

Sorry Marlayne and Jo-Ann that I didn’t attend your events!  Anthony and I have a few things to take care of before Shelli comes home.  Also, my SAM suggested I stay away from demonstrators so I would’nt spill the beans.  Which you would have seen as I am glowing right now!

I so wanted a picture with her at leadership but missed my chance, but now I will get more than a picture…

Thank you Ronda, fellow demonstrators and especially to my customers, for your support. 

I will have more details to share as soon as I know when she is coming.  It could be in a week or so.  I have been checking the Stampin’Up! web site about 10 times a day.  What a way to get some hits….Hey!(Proud to be Canadian!)lol…

Happy Tuesday!
