I've been married to my high school sweetheart for 40+ years. We have 6 children - 3 boys and 3 girls. The girls are all married, but the boys are not (yet!). Jessica and her husband Johnny have 4 children: Maddie Kate 17, Ava 13, Cohen 11, and Jaxon 7. Kimberly and her husband Tony have Liam 6, and Darcy 4. Alisa and Cody have Oakley 5, Lando 4, Ivory 2, and Cyndal 5 months. Currently I babysit Darcy 2-3 days a week. My stamping business dovetails nicely with being a Grammie!
ETA January 2, 2019: Our oldest son, Troy, is engaged to be married to Grace, in March 2019, and our "middle" son, Logan is engaged to Faith. They haven't set their date yet, but they are looking at sometime in the summer 2019. I've been a MIL to son-in-laws for a long time, but these sweet girls will be my first daughter-in-laws! Can you tell I'm just a little bit over the moon about them?
I've been a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator for over 16 years. At that time I had a full-time day job and did Stampin' Up! "on the side" until September of 2008 when we decided it was time to make my Stampin' Up! business my full time job! Yay!
I achieved the Founders' Circle Retreat for the Top 100 U.S. Demonstrators five times: 2008, 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2014.
A really great perk of being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator are the trips you can earn! I've earned lots of trips with Stampin' Up!
Western Carribean 2005 , Mexican Riviera 2006, Panama Canal 2007, Bermuda 2008, Hawaii 2009, Southern Caribbean 2010, Alaska 2011,

I love to stamp, create, and share with friends!
I became a Stampin' Up! demonstrator because I love stamping! I love being part of a company that constantly inspires my creativity with their exclusive stamps and accessories, but cares about their demonstrators and customers as much as they do about selling their product!
