I love being "in the know" and getting to see and play with things first so being a demonstrator was one way I could do this. I started stamping after my first daughter was born, which was over 27 years ago. Things have come a long way, and I love being on this ride, and I am so happy to be on it with Stampin'Up! I am now in my 9th year as a demonstrator. I have never had a "job" that lasted this long. I am so lucky.
