I enjoy card making and paper crafting. It's relaxing and fun.
I attended my very first Stampin Up Workshop hosted by my sister back in 1998. I was a little reluctant to go, but she said I would love it...so I went. There was no turning back; I was hooked. I've been stamping ever since. I've belonged to stamping clubs, attended crops, and held my own stamp camps and classes.... I invite friends to my home just to stamp.
I live in Central New Jersey and am "Mom" to two beautiful adult children. I have a wonderful extended family....my sisters and nieces enjoy seeing the cards and gifts I make. I share stamping with all my great nieces (they love my Paper Pumpkin Kits) and anyone else who will stamp with me!
I joined Stampin' Up! so I would have greater access to the latest stamping trends and the beautiful coordinating products Stampin' Up! showcases. Being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator allows me the opportunity to learn more about my craft from their community of Demonstrators, and to share the fun of stamping with others through many different venues. The best part of it all is that I get to host Stamp Camps which are fun and creatively inspiring.
When I create and share a handmade card or gift, It feels good and when I receive a handmade card or gift, I know I was thought of in a very special way.
