My Story



Thanks for coming to my website! I hope you love (or will SOON love) the art of creating with paper -- whether it be card-making, memory keeping, gift packaging or more  -- I hope you will allow me to be your demonstrator and teach you more about my passion for creativity.   I have been a demonstrator for 17 years, and I have a variety of clubs and classes which typically meet in my home.  I have a monthly Stamp Club Class that meets in my home once a month and I offer additional classes which don't require a monthly committment.   Please contact me if you'd like to attend an event.  I'd love to have you, no matter what your skill level.  I'm always looking for ways to share my creative outlet with others. 

After many years as a SAHM, I now work outside the home at a local bank.  God has blessed me with a job I love and financial rewards to help pay for college tuitions, but I am not available for daytime classes any more.  You'll notice that some of my classes are on Saturday mornings, and occasionally a week-night.  

I'm a mom to two college graduates, a Sophomore in college, a new son-in-law, and an adopted 6 year old!  We have been foster parents for 12 years, and we adopted one of our kiddos -- just in time to avoid the Empty Nest!  

When I'm not busy being a wife or a mom, I love to sew, shop, and eat out! I also enjoy making quilts and finding quilt shops in different places when we travel.  I hope you'll get to know me and contact me if you'd like to come over for a fun stampin' experience! I feel confident that you will love my classes and the projects we create.  Want to know more?  Allow me to take you out to eat and talk to you more about why I LOVE being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator!
