My Story

blushMarylee Fostersurprise

I love papercrafts! I started out scrapbooking in 2004. My son was set to graduate from high school in 2005 and had participated in Drama productions all through high school. I wanted to create a scrapbook to celebrate his 15 (yes you read that right 15!) productions in four years. So, I created a scrapbook. Yep, over 60 pages. Yep, in about 6 months! Yep, never done it before! Yep, it was a hit!!!

I continued making many, many scrapbooks. I began to notice "stamping" and how it could be included in scrapbooks. Then, realized you could actually use all those scraps and make gorgeous cards. In 2010, I joined a Stamp Club held by a Stampin' Up Demonstrator. I was in LOVE!!!!!

Since 2010, I have gone from being told what and how to do, to CASing others, to creating my own ideas, and finally to coaching others to be creative and adventurous. It is just paper! Did I say that?

In my real world, I am married to the most fantastic guy and best friend (since 1975). I am a mom to a fabulous daugher and son. I have been teaching high school math for 28 years (yep! Math!! there are people who like math). This summer, I became a "Mimi" to the cutest little boy!!! Heart throb!

Let me help you realize your personal, creative goals!
