My Story

     Making your own cards, gifts, scrapbook pages and more gives double joy: the joy in making something from the heart and the joy in giving it. The first Stampin’ Up! party/workshop I ever attended was amazing; I was mesmerized by the beautiful products and simple yet creative process. Having never stamped anything before, I left there with an impressive-looking project that I made.  I was hooked and thoroughly enjoy helping others get hooked too! 
     Stamping is such a great creative outlet as well as an avenue to give something from the heart.  Many of us give away much of what we make!  Relationships are the cherry-on-top of all things stamping.  Not only do we express our love for others thus strengthening our connections as we give our creations, but we meet amazing people through stamping.  I make new friends regularly as we gather to have fun, learn new things, turn out new projects, and create something beautiful.  Being able to teach others age-old techniques or the newest trend in stamping brings great joy and fulfillment to my life. 
     I've never had more fun working than since becoming a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator!  Every single aspect of this company is top-notch.  The customer service is excellent, the support they give us demonstrators is outstanding, and the cutting-edge designs and products seem to be in endless supply.  Being connected to this great company gives me confidence and resources to "do what I love and share what I do".  I still can't believe I'm getting paid to do this!

I'm having more fun stamping than ever before!  I love what I do and have never, ever regretted becoming a Stampin' Up! demonstrator.  Now that I have an empty nest, I have a new Stamping Studio--I took over my son's old room.  He is a happy, newly-married man and I am a happy empty nester!  The studio is a continuing work in progress:)  It's a great space for classes and clubs as well as for my own crafting.  What a great stage in this journey of life...and stamping makes it even better!
