My Story


I was introduced to Stampin' Up! in 2004 by a business colleague who was a demonstrator at the time.  I became her customer for three years and finally took the plunge and became an independent demonstrator in 2007 and have never looked back!  I've been sewing and crafting since I was a child and my passion has become stamping since joining Stampin' Up!  By day I am a business reference librarian and have worked in both corporate and public library settings for over 40 years.  Currently I own my own information consulting business and most of my clients are small business owners, entrepreneurs and nonprofit organizations.

In addition to stamping, I’ve been a quilter since the 1970's and love the design and color aspects of the quiltmaking process the most.  My specialties are applique and crazy quilting, where I get to play with fabrics, beads, antique lace and buttons, and all sorts of wonderful embroidery threads.  I also enjoy doing embroidery, needlework, counted cross stitch and beadwork.
