International Women's Day

Today, March 8th, is International Women’s Day (  This year’s theme is ~Pledgeforparity.  Equal pay between the genders.  It is estimated, that at the rate Women’s pay is increasing in relation to Men’s pay, it will be 2133 before the sexes have equal pay.  That’s an awful long time in which to discourage, dishearten and under-value women.  I hope you take time today to consider how we can embrace the next generation of women and help them achieve all that they can.

To support the day, I created this card so that, as women, we can celebrate what makes us strong.  The industry we enjoy – crafting – is a female dominated area and it is amazing that we all support and believe in each other.  I have found in Stampin’ Up a truly amazing group of women (and men) who share what they love so openly.  It is always a pleasure to spend time with my fellow demonstrators, sharing ideas and celebrating achievements.

It is also a joy to work with my customers (well, my friends really) to help them achieve techniques and styles that they may not have always considered.  I love what I do because of the women I meet daily doing it.
Support International Women’s Day.
