I do NOT craft to I DO craft in 13 years!
My crafting story started in 2000 when my family and I visited friends in Washington DC. At that time I did NOT craft!
Shortly after our arrival our friends invited me to attend a stamping party. My question was 'Do I need special shoes?'. Bemused looks said it all. Off I travelled to this 'stamping party' where I made a card or two and had a truly fun time. On my return my husband was impressed with my efforts and asked me ' Did you buy anything?' I explained that I had and he was rather shocked at the amount I had spent, but thought for a moment and said 'I guess if you make cards rather than buy them then that's a good investment!'
Since that day I have not looked back as I have enjoyed every minute of my paper crafting. I DO now craft and when Stampin' Up! opened for business in Europe I became a demonstrator. I've grown friendships, been on incentive trips to Vienna and Utah, earned cash bonuses and am generally having a ball. Join me sometime for a class or party and I'll share all I've learned with you.
