My Story

My Stampin’ Up! Story started when my friend invited me to a “Stamp Camp” 10 years ago.  Not thinking I was the artsy-craftsy type I was very reluctant to go. Once I got there I felt like a dear in headlights when I saw all the beautiful things we were going to make! As we got started I was very shocked to realize that I was actually doing this! So yes, I was hooked and ordered product to make my daughter’s birthday invitations, and ended up having a party of my own!  The rest was history. I signed up in August 2003 and never looked back!

Also at the time I had been going through Infertility Treatments (several) and was on my last procedure with a 15% chance of it working.  DH and I knew it wasn’t going to work. I had already resigned to the fact that if it was meant to be it would be.  My mind was literally on Stampin’ Up!, Cards, projects, 3D’s” Yes very obsessed! LOL! I wasn’t thinking about anything else but STAMPIN!.  Well found out I was pregnant a few months after signing up (my Anniversary Gift) and let me just say that my son is my Miracle Baby. Stampin’ Up!  was the best therapy for me and continues to be!

Stampin’ Up! has been a life saver for me at a time in my life when I was going through all the IVF things. I can’t imagine not having Stampin’ Up! in my life they are an AWESOME company and I’m glad to be a part of it. I absolutely LOVE what I do and LOVE sharing it too!  WHY??  How can I not!

So this is my Story and how it began and I’m sticking to it!
