The new job

Well I have been at the new job now for almost a week and finally I have time in my life to post about it. I am working for an awesome company called Uppercase Living. Some of you are probably familiar with them. They are all about vinyl decorative lettering and images that help you personalize your home. I am new so my explanation probably leaves you with more questions than I can answer. So here is their website where you can read all about them. http://www.uppercaseliving.com/ I really like this company so far. They have treated me very well since arriving here. The company ia run by really great people. My team has taken me in and immediately made me feel like I was part of them. So today I brought in my favorite treat for them.....Beyond Glaze Doughnuts. Here is a pic before we devoured the box:

I only share these for the favorite people in my life, so that tells you how much I love this new company. I can't wait to show you projects I am creating with their products. I feel very blessed to be with this company and can't wait to present at their events. And for my Stampin' Up! friends out there, we CAN still remain friends. I will still be posting cards and projects that I work on with SU products and still want to hear about and celebrate your successes! And hopefully I can attend an event here and there as a guest so that I can see you all sometime as well.
Your friend,
Jaron

I'm so tickled pink for you in this new endeavor, Jaron! I think of you every time I see boxes of Pop Tarts, as in the recipe boxes that Carrie presented. Now, I'll think of you and the prettiest donuts I've ever seen whenever I see the plan boring kind...which is now every kind around here in San Francisco. I started drooling over the picture, especially the ones with pink icing. It's a miracle I didn't short out the 'puter! Best wishes to you and yours in this new chapter of your life!

Congratulations! I've definitely heard of Uppercase Living. In fact I have some hanging in my house. I went to a party right before SU! came out with Decor Elements. Good stuff. I look forward to seeing all your creations.

I had a feeling that you might check into that company. Congrats on your new job. I love UCL! and would be selling it if I wasn't already selling SU. The doughnuts look yummy! You'll have to show us some wall art after you get addicted to putting it on your walls.

Congratulations!

Congratulations Jaron on your new job... glad to hear that you are really liking your job. I hadn't ever heard of UCL till SU had brought up about selling for other companies if you were a demo. Looks like they make some awesome products. They are fortunate to have your talent with them now.

Jaron

congratulations on your new job! And UPL....wow so many SU employees have ended up there....I hope your new home is as good as SU and that you are very happy. Will you be coming to convention as a guest? I am going to miss your singing this year...

Well Lots of Luck in your new job and post some of your projects made with their product.

Mel Hopes said...

congrat Jaren! You deserve the best. I am so glad that things are working out for you and I hope that you enjoy every bit of the job.

Can't wait to see your projects.
Miss you.

PattyZeitler said...

Can you please come to my home and decorate?? LOL Congrats on a new adventure in your life. You totally deserve the best in anything you do.

Cheryl said...

What an awesome company! How lucky they are to have you. Best of luck, I know you'll be great!

Lynnette said...

I agree with Cheryl, UL is so lucky to have you. I am so gonna be talkin' you up to my friend who is a demonstrator for them. I just ordered a custom verse from her - Jeremiah 29:13. I can't wait to put it up on my wall.
And, I can't wait to hear more about your fab new job. All the best to you and your family.

Sue said...

Hi Jaron, Sounds like you found a awesome new job. So happy for you. Those donuts look delicious!! -Sue

stampsany1 said...

YAY for you!!! Now I can finally see some of this stuff in action (after you post some of your projects!). All of my SU! Decor El. are still in their roll. I am so intimidated by it. Plus, I should paint & get new furniture before I put that up, don't you think!?

Have a great day at work & post some ideas soon.

Blessings,
Dawn Billings

Shelly in the NW said...

Wow! they are so lucky to have you. I can't wait to see what you create. :)

Leslie said...

Congrats Jaron! You are so talented, that you will do well in whatever you do. I wish I coul have you come and decorate my house. ;)

I have a secret... last year at convention when you did the scrapbook I was one of the ones who won the kit. I have not even opened it, since it was raffled off by you. LOL, is that pathetic or what? You are just one of my stamping heros and I will miss you very much!

I am looking forward to seeing any new creations from you!

Kim Ryden said...

Congrats! I'm kinda jealous that you work for them...SU misses you!!! Wish you could come back!

susantodd said...

Jaron, much success in your new position! Do you have a demo number or anything that you can give us so that we can order through you?? Glad to hear that you are doing well.

Pam Lee said...

They are lucky to have you!! I'll miss seeing you present at SU! events!!!

Cindy Major said...

Jaron,

Congratulations on your job! I am very happy to hear that you like it and that you've been welcomed warmly by your new team. They'd better treat you right or we're coming after them!

Look at those beautifully decorated doughnuts... When I saw the pic along with the title of your post, I was wondering if you had been hired to combine your designing skills with fancy food... Now, I can see this has nothing to do with it, but those are some very pretty doughnuts!

I do hope we still get to hear from you and see some fab stamped projects. It would be awesome to see you again at an event. Hopefully, this can happen sooner rather than later.

Take care, and have fun with the new gig!

Cindy

Jar' I am soooo excited for you! I hope this is a wonderful job experience for you! No matter what you do...you will succeed! I have faith in you!
Love you Granny

bcyhand said...

SO happy for you! It helps when you like what your doing, I'm sure you'll do well.....like everyone else, you will be missed.

Blessings to you and your family

Tina Sieben, Stampin' Up Demonstrator said...

Jaron I am so happy for you! I can't help but chuckle that you are working for UL, especially with all the water under the bridge between the two companies. It is so funny in an ironic kind of way. While I love SU and will do my best to stay with them, they really made a mistake by letting you go... and now you'll be using your amazing talents with their competition. I say GOOD FOR YOU! No looking back. I wanted to thank you for all of the inspiration and talent you've shared with all of us. I first met you in Atlantic City, and again at convention last year and instantly fell in love with your outgoing personality. You helped me come out of my shell and taught me so many things... So a huge THANK YOU and GOD BLESS YOU for that. Much success to you in the future... you will be missed!

Kathy C said...

Congratulations to you Jaron! How lucky UCL is to have you on their team :)

Sharon bode said...

I knew you were a SMART MAN!!! I AM THRILLED you're on our team now Jaron! As a former SU that "had" to leave because of the whole Uppercase Living issue, I couldn't be happier. I just spread the wonderful news to everyone on our team and throughout UL.

We're looking forward to seeing you on OUR UL stage at Convention!!!!

MichelleR said...

Jaron I had to log on to your blog after Sharon Bode sung your praises on our team website! The excitement over you being with us now is contagious and I am looking forward to seeing what you come up with. Welcome and have fun!

Hurray! I just joined UL myself, and am thrilled you have joined the company! I hope to see you presenting at convention and regional gatherings.

Lois Folla said...

I'm so thrilled for you! I'm glad you are staying in a similar field! I just watched a video on SU! with you in it, I still can't believe you are not there anymore. But skies are blue, for you... (Hum, that didn't sound positive - which is what I was going for... tee hee

Best of luck in your new job! Oh and thanks a LOT... I'm wiping off my screen while typing this since I drooled over it after I clicked for an up close & personal look at those DONUTS!

Congratultions Jaron! I have heard of this company, I ran into one of their demonstrators at a craft fair/expo not that long ago and saw some of the wonderful product they have and even got a catty from her. I know she really enjoyed being a demo with them. Good luck!

Congrats Jaron on your new venture! As much as I mourn our loss, I know that Uppercase Living is going to be blessed to have you there. Enjoy! And don't forget us because we won't forget you.

Kelly Taylor said...

Congrats Jaron! UL is a great company and so lucky to have you...we will miss you at SU!

Jen Blank said...

I am really excited for you. Since the layoffs I have been following your blog. Just a funny thing- the ladies in the ads just like the SU ladies. Ha! Ha! Good Luck.

Jaron, Congrats! on the new job. The donuts do look yummy! I do have to say that I will miss seeing you at Regional, you have always inspired me.

lynzei said...

I'm happy to imagine you using the term "adhese" in your new job. Congrats!

Carol Rosengren said...

Jaron, It is so good to see you are doing well and have found a new job. I would wish you much success, but you are already successful, so that seems kinda foolish. However, I do wish you warmth and all the happiness a person can have. (especially you, so you will smile your wonderful smile...)

Hugs,
Carol
