Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator
About me. I have always loved paper and ink. It all started with notebooks and office supplies – I was a very organized child. It all quickly evolved to stationery and stamping. I am happy when I’m stamping, thinking about stamping or talking about stamping.
My History with Stampin’ Up!. I was invited by a coworker to my first Stampin’ Up! workshop in December 2002. I signed up with Stampin’ Up! on the spot and was excited to fill my craft room (a small, spare bedroom) with Stampin’ Up! supplies at a discount. I quickly ran out of space and dropped after about a year-and-a-half. I boxed it all up. When I moved in 2011, I unpacked my boxes of stamps, inks and paper. I now had space so decided to join Stampin’ Up! again. I re-joined in 2012 because I knew it was the best way to earn free products and to earn the privilege of products at a discount. I had no desire or intent to build a business out of this.
Accomplishments. I am an accountant and a businessman. My college and graduate studies were focused in Accounting and Business Administration. As a manager in Corporate Accounting, I honed the skills to support a stamping business.
