MY BACKGROUND: Born and raised in So.Cal--and yes, my family are USC Trojans! Meet Mike at church and he is still my best friend. After raising 3 kids, they are turning out pretty well; The house isn't quiet for long; ladies come over to stamp and there is always a kid or two that comes home to visit.
In 1989, I attended a Stampin’ Up! party out of "obligation" to a good friend. I didn't even stay for the demo, but just booked a workshop and left. I was home on maternity leave with my last child and my husband was student teaching. We were broke. I had never stamped before in my life. After Jill had done the demo at my house, I asked her lots of questions about SU. I borrowed the demo kit money from my MIL ($250) and signed up. My goal was to do a workshop a week. It quickly grew and grew. God has continued to bless me. My Inkyfingers group has grown to demos all over the U.S. I found that niche of creating, copier and sharing that I needed.
