About Me

I have been papercrafting since I decided to stay home with my two younger children in 1998 and have been a Stampin’ Up demonstrator since 2011.  Memory-keeping and stamping have been my creative release through all of the stages of my children’s lives. I am married to a wonderful man, who may not quite understand my love of all things paper, but knows that it makes me a happier person. With my youngest now away at college, it is a great time to be creative, and do something I truly love.

OTHER INTERESTS:  Photography, which is what got me into papercrafting in the first place!  Traveling, reading, and volunteer work are all very important to me and my family.

Stampin’ Up is a family owned company and is celebrating over 25 years in business.  Their commitment to quality, both in products and customer service, is top notch.  I am hooked on their coordinating cardstock, design paper, buttons, ribbons, punches, Big Shot accessories and stamp sets – best in the business, bar none!  The best part for me is, without a doubt, being part of a fabulous group called the Stampin’ Pretty Pals, headed by Mary Fish.  As a demonstrator, there is no pressure from anyone, so you do what you want to do with no pressure to do any more than that.  I have early access to all of the new catalogs and with the discount, you can afford more fun stuff!  What’s not to love about that?? Please join one of my classes (in person or by mail), place an order or join Stampin Up and let me help you start your own journey of creative fun!  It has kept me going and I can get you going, too!

  2. Debbie,
    It took me a long time to confirm my subscription to your wonderful blog! For some reason, it kept saying you weren’t available. Finally went through.
    Happy to be here.
    I am searching for a Turkish tea pot and I can get them in Hamilton – bonus.
