Thanks for stopping by so I can share with you! My Stampin' Up! story, began in 2000, when I became curious about the craft of rubber stamping. The timing was perfect, when a coworker invited me to her Stampin' Up! card class, and the demonstrator had me as soon as I stamped that first image! It is almost magical, making beautiful things, simply by inking a stamp!
It is hard to believe that was over 15 years ago, and I have made every.single.card I have shared with others since! And since that first card was made, it has become so much more than just stamping. I became a demonstrator in 2010, and it has been many fun filled years since! I continue to look forward to the amazing experiences yet to be discovered!
I love teaching the art of papercrafting. Sharing it is something special to offer others. I enjoy offering several classes a month. I also lead the awesome team of Mel's Inky Fingers, a group of fun and enthusiastic stampers, who also share the love of papercrafting. We meet every month for training to work on Stampin' Up! goals, whatever they may be, while learning techniques, tips, and we just have fun!
I grew up in a small town in Michigan, before moving to Ohio. I share a busy life with my very supportive husband, and 4 active kiddos, who keep us on our toes. We enjoy the many sports and activities they choose, which include soccer, hockey, lacrosse, and music, and the friendships we make with other families along the way. In my free time, I enjoy time with family--of course, being outdoors, sewing, and cycling.
Stampin' Up! events are one of my favorite reasons to get away! The training and excitement they offer are second-to-none! I have met friends from all over the world, whom I work and train with. And being invited to present at a Stampin' Up! event in front of hundreds of talented demonstrators from around the world, is one of the biggest honors I have received!
I love my customers and team! It is what makes this job amazing! Thank you for letting me share my creativity with you! Now, enough about me.....let's get crafty! Hang with me for awhile, or join my awesome team, and let's create!
