It has been four years since I signed up as a Stampin'Up! demonstrator! I originally just signed up for the discount I could get on products. I loved so much of it and was completely smitten with this new hobby and of course, funds are always limited. I figured out I could earn more free stuff if I hosted classes and people ordered stuff. Well, what I didn't expect was to make so many new friends, learn so many new techniques and have so much fun! I look forward to each opportunity I have to stamp with some old friends and some new friends. My personal circumstances and life have changed quite a bit in the past four years (caring for my parents while giving up many of the previous activities I was involved in) but my little Stampin'Up! business has been a refuge for me. It's a place to go to create, relax, think, make and pass on to others. It's fed that part of me that likes to be productive and make things for others.
If you've ever thought about becoming a Stampin'Up! demonstrator, I'd love to talk to you! There are lots of good reasons to join, but you'll have your very own that work for you.
To those of you who have come to my classes and/or bought some things, THANK YOU! I have been able to expand my supplies and stamp collection and even take in some conventions and classes because of your support! I hope to keep on going for many years to come! Here's a thank you card, just for all of you wonderful people:
There is still room in my Thursday evening monthly card class (3 cards for $10) and my Friday morning class. Let me know if you can come!
Big Sky Stampin' Papercrafting
I have been a crafter most of my life, starting in about 8th grade when I tried to embroider some frogs on a quilt, that I never finished! Although the list of what "I never finished" is long, and includes cross stitch, knitting, crocheting, quilting and more, my latest obsession is paper! I joined Stampin'Up! as an independent demonstrator in October 2011 and have been going like crazy ever since! I offer classes in my home, do catered card parties at your home and sell my cards locally in Bozeman, Montana and around the lovely Gallatin Valley. I would love to meet and talk to you if you are interested in the papercrafting hobby or just need some unique handmade cards for a special occasion!
