My Story

 Stampin' with Sushi

My mom was the person that got  me interested in making things with my hands.  In fact, we had to show our Talented Fingers each time we made a gift for each other growing up.  As an adult I still enjoyed making things especially with stamps.  But  I  struggled with what my cards looked like.  I had such a hard time combining stamps into a look I really loved.

Things changed when I attended my first StampinUp workshop with my youngest sister.  All of sudden I loved the cards I made. They looked just like the one that had been demonstrated to me; all the stamps in a stamp set coordinated and the paper and ribbon matched. No longer did I have to struggle over finding things that matched and looked good together. This was great and I was hooked on StampinUp.

My sister was even more hooked than I was and joined up as a demonstrator right away. I loved hearing about all the fun she was having while earning money at the same time. Tthis was something I could do when I retired I thought to myself.  Well, I held out about 4 months and I too became a demonstrator.  I have had the best time teaching what I love to others and seeing them love the projects they create with their own hands.  Now we all have Talented Fingers.
