Many years ago, I was building a pond in my back yard with my Dad. This adventure was a true Labour of Love. I took many pictures of all the many changes and advancement. For Christmas that year, I wanted to do a Scrap Book for him. A young lady that I worked with helped me put it together, but said to me why don't you look into Stamping. What was Stamping? She gave me a name of a lady. I called her and she brought a Catalogue down to me at work within what I thought was minutes. OMG, life as it was, was never the same. I breathed, ate and slept with that catalogue. In 2003 I started going to her classes and joined her Stampers 10. Then in 2009, I had an ahah moment..........why wouldn't I get a discount and work a bit to pay for my habit. I talked to her in April and in May I was a Stampin Up Demonstrator. I don't know if I am saving money, but I can tell you my life is so enriched with the friends that I have made in this Wonderful Community.
