My Story

It all started with my first hand stamped card, I was HOOKED.  The feeling of WOW I am creative when that is not how I saw myself.  In my previous job as a Licensed Practical Nurse, you really can't get to creative with your patients treatments, LOL.  I loved what I did helping people improve and feel better. Listening to them and getting to know them as people not just patients. 

In my Stampin' Up! Business I am still able to improve the lives of many with teaching and helping them discover their creative side.  We all have one (I am proof of that) we just need to develop it. 

In 1998 my dear husband said, "I think if you sell that, they give you a discount", that was all it took for me to purchase the Stampin' Up! Starter Kit - back then it was $299. and today you can get the starter kit for only $99.   I planned to hold a party or two each month for fun and earn extra money to purchase more stamps.  My calendar started to fill up with parties and I was having so much fun sharing my passion for Stampin’ Up! my business just grew. 

I continue to Love what I do and Share what I love and now my income does more than purchase extra stamps.  Many demonstrators in my group still just enjoy a discount on their stamps without ever holding classes and parties and some in between.  That is the wonderful thing about Stampin' Up! each of us can decide exactly how we want to take advantage of the Stampin' Up! opportunity.

In 2012 I was asked to serve on the Stampin' Up! Advisory Board.  Stampin' Up! selected six demonstrators from its more than 35,000 independent demonstrators in North America, to serve for one year. We worked closely with company officials to provide feedback, ideas, and suggestions. The company relies on this information as it makes critical business decisions regarding product offerings, business opportunities and career plan, and customer service.

This is the most amazing journey and I continue to love it, even after all these years.  Would LOVE to have you join my warm and friendly community of stampers known as the Diva & Dude Stampers and enjoy the wonderful opportunity.
