Hi everyone, I'm so glad you stopped by my Blog. Grab your favorite beverage and take a look around.
I am 61 years young. I live in Central Missouri between Eldon and Lake of the Ozarks in the United States.
I have been married for 18 years to my wonderful husband, Chuck. Believe it or not I was kind of a mail order bride. Chuck and I met on an internet site in 2003, he responded to my profile but before I could see his message I had to pay $29.99. I always tell people I had to pay for my husband. It was a whirl wind romance. We met in person in May and we got married on June 27th 2003. He is the greatest guy and supports me in my Stampin Up!® business.
We have four grandchildren, the oldest is 19 and in the Marines, my granddaughter will turn 16 this year, and then I have a grandson who is 12 and my granddaughter just turned 12. I can't believe how the years have flown by. My granddaughter who is 12 is always saying, "I'm your favorite", while I don't have a favorite I am very close to her and her older brother. I have helped to raise them and don't know what I would do without their witty personalities.
This is my Grandson, daughter, and Granddaughter
I was first introduced to Stampin' Up!® in the late 1990's by my mom. I made a few cards but was more interested in scrapbooking at the time. It was't until 2015 that I became hooked. I started attending a stamping club with my mom as something to do once a month. I soon found I really loved designing and making cards and other paper crafts.
Fast Forward to 2020. I was attending two clubs a month with a dear friend who was a demonstrator. She was preparing to move to the Kansas City, MO area and didn't want to leave her customers without anyone to service their stamping needs. She asked if I would be interested in becoming a Stampin' Up!® demonstrator and continue doing the classes with the ladies I had become friends with. So, in January of 2021 I signed up and I LOVE what I do.
