Stampin' Up! was a creative outlet for me, as well as a way to meet other women when I was a stay-at-home mom with two babies. I met and made very good friends through this journey. Women I know I never would've met otherwise.
Working with my neighbor lasted a couple of years. She moved and I decided to work my business. I challenged myself with goals ranging from earning a free hostess set to an incentive trip, earning many of both. Today, I still enjoy stamping. I especially love receiving handmade cards from my friends. They really mean a lot!
I teach an occasional stamping class, but my attention is drawn elsewhere these days - assisting an elderly blind woman with her errands, cooking, bills, etc., and making sure my kids (now both teenagers) are preparing/prepared for college classes. I volunteer regularly through my local Lions Club, and I'm also vice president of my husband's construction company.
I'm happy I can say I've been a Stampin' Up! demonstrator for 15 years. And I'm happy you've been along for much of the ride. Thank you!
