I have been stamping for over 14 years. It started as a hobby I picked up from some of my coworkers who stamped after work hours.
We all work in Radiology and we got together a few times a month to do a make and take with cards, or little projects during lunch break. In the beginning, it was a novelty and an expensive hobby since I had never been exposed to card making before. I will say in the years to follow I ebbed and flowed with my interest in cards.
Then one day, I decided to get out my stamping stuff and make a card for my niece and nephew…..little as they were at the time, the smiles on their faces made my heart swell. I also made cards for my grandparents, and people started to compliment me on my designs!
Well…. time has passed and I now create a holiday card for my not so little friends, and even though those the grandparents are no longer here with me, I know how much those cards mattered to them. I have gotten pictures and videos and so many words of love on how much these kids ( young and old) appreciate getting a little card in the mail each month.
So my hobby is now OFFICIALLY my obsession! That was all it took and I decided to become a demonstrator. Now even when I finish a card, a new idea is already brewing. I have now made being a Stampin’ Up! demo my FULL TIME JOB (EEKKK) and I could not be more happy in how I get to spend days: Inspiring people and making someone smile.
Most, ok ALL of my free time I spend looking for new ideas or cool uses for something I might already have. I look for fun ways to use an old tool or stamp set. I craft ideas from inspiration you all send to me.
It is an understatement to say I LOVE WHAT I DO! It may sound cheesy but it is true. I am and have always been creative and inquisitive and this fits me better than anything in life!
Won’t you come along and join me on this journey?
