To understand why I became I Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator you need to know a little personal information. Obviously I like all things crafts, but I also like to draw, water color paint and enjoy photography. My education is in engineering, not technical writing or English Grammar. If I misuse or spell a word, please let me know. I truly want to know and I definately want to fix it, so please let me know. Oh yeah, and I obviously get off track easily. LOL! (LOL – means “Lots of Love” to me)

Getting back to “Why I became a demonstrator?”…. My daughter was born with a host of medical issues, which kept me at home for several years. A dear friend whom I met through my daughter, invited me to a Stampin’ Up! party. I went and realized in an instant what Stampin’ Up! could do for me. What it ultimately did for me, is that it gave me a hobby that I could do in my own home. It gave me back a little piece of me when I needed it most. As time went on and my little girl got stronger, I thought that I could help other people like me who were stuck at home for whatever reason. That is how and why my blog, www.StampThings.com, was created and why I will ultimately be selling Stamp Kits to support www.SpecialNeedsMA.com .

No matter how you came to StampThings.com my goal is to help. I truly hope that you will find something here worth your while. If you happen to want to become a demonstrator go back to the “become a demonstrator” page and click the button to sign-up. I am happy to help you on your journey in anyway that I can.
