I left a great group of Stampin friends behind in Connecticut when my husband accepted a transfer to Florida. I was feeling very sorry for myself in a strange town where I knew no-one and had no one to share the fun and friendships that stamping and scrapbooking seem to bring together. One of my girlfriends back home suggested that I become a Stampin Up Demonstrator as a way to get out and meet people in my new home town. That was more than six years ago and I have met some of the most wonderful women, many of whom will be life-long friends, through becoming a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator. It is so rewarding. Not only do I get to be creative every day, I also get to be a creative coach, offering fresh project ideas and encouragement to my customers and friends.
For me, helping someone create that perfect project for a special occasion is the best feeling in the entire world. After all, creating cards, scrapbook pages, and gift items is about more than just stamps and ink—it’s about sharing a part of yourself with the people you love.
