I have been a craft enthusiast as far back as I can remember. Now, as a Mom of two young boys and a wife to my loving husband, I am finding all new avenues to unleash my creative potential! I find myself getting very excited when I help someone discover a new use for a product in their lives that will enhance their artistry.
Crafting and creating with kids has become a special interest for me. My sons are aged three and five and both boys have such special talents. I can see potential in them grow each day and working together on a project such as stamping out a card with animals or making number flash cards, is easily the highlight of my day. My children both have autism and I see that helping them use therapy related crafts helps to redirect their focus in a positive direction. Making cards for others is a fantastic focal point for them and helps them to learn skills at the same time. Win = Win for us all!
Being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is so rewarding. Not only do I get to be creative every day, I also get to be a creative coach, offering fresh project ideas and encouragement to my customers and friends.
For me, helping someone create that perfect project for a special occasion is the best feeling in the entire world. After all, creating cards, scrapbook pages, and gift items is about more than just stamps and ink—it’s about sharing a part of yourself with the people you love.
