My Story


I have to admit, I wasn’t too sure of this stamping thing when I went to my first workshop. In fact, I only went to chat with friends while sipping on margaritas. My husband was totally surprised when I came home and said, " We need to talk. I know I found the perfect way to add some income while having fun & sharing fun times with others." He had that deer in the headlights look then said, "If it makes you happy, go for it!" I had never stamped before and admit, wasn’t much of a scrapbooker, but knew this was easier than what I was currently doing for extra income. ( woodworking & painting items for craft shows). And so my journey begins. . . . .
I didn’t do my first workshop for a while because I needed to finish the crafting season. I scheduled my first workshop after the holidays and showed up with a broken ankle. Everyone had so much fun and they couldn't wait to get together again.
I am still having fun after 18 years of sharing stamping and forming new friendships.

My HapBEE Stampers in Ink family are across the country and consider them the sisters I never had. We enjoy spending time together , sharing ideas, laughing and buliding the friendships we have all gained through Stampin’ Up!.
Being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator 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,fellow demonstrators, and friends. In today's economic times, I find myself showing others how to save money and share a piece of themselves with others. 
You will often hear the comment that it is much more than stamping, it's all about the relationships that we gain. I love brining others together and watch as strangers build friendships and share the joy of stamping. I will often hear," I used to stamp and paper craft but I don't know anyone else that does and it just isn't any fun doing it by yourself." That is what I do, I bring people together so come join us! I am positive you will once again have the joy of crafting with others in your life.

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. Anyone can go on the internet and copy ideas but I love the personal interaction. Besides, don’t you feel funny shouting at your computer," Look what I just created!" ? I can aslo show you how to do a bit of home decor with our products.

Contact me, I’d love to share some ideas with you- if I can do this so can  you! 

Does the thought of getting away for a weekend with other women, while you stamp and craft to beat those winter blues, sound wonderful to you?
 Then come away with HapBEE Stamping for our third annual "Beat the Winter Blues retreat happening Feb 2,3 & 4th.
