I’m the wife of one, mother of two (both married) and grandma to one—amazing Phineas! My husband Mark and I live in Orange County, California, and we love to welcome people into our home, whether it’s for my Stampin’ Up! business or just a meal around the table. In addition to stamping I enjoy all kinds of crafts, including quilting, and I am thrilled to be a Mentor Mom in MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) at our church.
I actually stamped for three years as a customer before I signed up to become a demonstrator. I never intended to build a business—I just joined to get the discount on my supplies! But in my first month I had a few friends over to do a couple of projects, sold $1200 in product, and had so much fun I just kept going! By my tenth month I had earned a cruise to Bermuda for my husband and me, and that first year I was also a Stampin’ Up! Rising Star, #2 in the company! I earned the coveted Founder’s Circle Award (top 100 demonstrators in the company) for five years, and have earned all the Incentive trips since I became a demonstrator on July 31, 2006.
I love teaching stamping and paper crafting and I love our products, but mostly, I love my customers! Whether it’s for classes, workshops, open houses, fundraisers or retreats, we all have such a good time together—it always feels like a party with my best friends!
