My Story


Creating cards, scrapbook pages, and gifts is about more than just paper, stamps and ink—it’s about sharing a part of yourself with the people you love.  When I lead workshops, stamp clubs or paper crafting classes I feel that I'm giving you the tools you need to be able to share this love with the important people in your life.  I'd love to be able to include you.  Please contact me to schedule a workshop, sign up for a class, or just to stop by to stamp during an unstructured stamping session in my home where you can catch up on your backlog of greeting cards or scrapbooking.

As long as I can remember, I've been making things.  My first teacher was my very talented Mother who instilled in me a love of all things handmade.  Over the years, I've been lucky enough to sharpen my skills in many areas, but my favorite crafts involve paper.  

In the last 15 years, I've focused on scrapbooking and stamping.  As these two crafting media have exploded on the market, I've been taking classes and going to trade shows to learn all the latest techniques using the newest products.

Ten years ago, I was asked to begin sharing my skills and decided to become a Stampin' Up! independent Demonstrator.  In this capacity, I have met some truly wonderful people who share my love of paper crafting.

You should know, however, that my first love is my family.  My husband, 5 children, and 8 grandchildren (and my pets "Zorro" and "Bernie" the Shih Tzus) are the bedrock of my life.  In addition, my mother, 2 sisters, 3 brothers and all of my nieces and nephews enhance my life with their constant love and support.  I have been very blessed.
