I am a Mom, that's my job first and foremost. Second I am a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator. I love that I don't have to choose between the two. I get to set my own hours and go on vacation when I choose to, without having to wait for someone else to give me permission.
I started going to Stampin' Up! parties because I was a stay-at-home Mom and, as much as I love my kids, I just needed to be with adults sometimes. (Can any of you relate?) And most of the women there were also Mom's so they understood how I felt. I went there just for a night with friends, but after seeing how simple it was to make cards that looked like you'd spent hours on them...I was hooked.
Now, every free minute I have I am in my craft room creating and designing. And I love every minute of it.
