I am the mother of 4 wonderful children, ranging in age from 7 to 15, who are my pride & joy! Between running my own bookkeeping business, 4 children & their activities, my world is busy. To find some "down" time I joined Stampin’ Up! in August of 2012, after much convincing by my fiance who is my #1 fan and supporter, to escape for “me time”, enjoy my hobby and meet other crafters. I have crafted with family and friends my entire life, so a new craft sounded new and exciting. I have to say I had no idea how much fun this would be and how enriching it is! I have met so many new people, experienced so much already and challenged myself and grown in so many ways. My passion for card making and teaching others is what has surprised me the most, and when I say, I love what I do, that is a total understatement! Stampin’ Up! has filled a void that I didn't know existed and has unleashed a creative passion that I love, and truly fulfilled my "me" time!
