Discover the Craft in You!

The invite - thanks, Susan!
That is it! I am in full swing with my stamping. Over the weekend, I spent an afternoon full of laughter and giggles with the ladies while they uncover their knack for crafts and also catch up with one another seeing that we are/were all connected at some point in our lives. I know it was as much fun for me as it was for them. It was also a good platform for me to take my stamping back to where it was five years ago and then take it up a notch going forward.

With that, I want to extend an invitation to those who are interested in discovering their crafty side and get a chance to network with other awesome crafters to my first Stamp-A-Stack event. This is a collaborative effort among three Stampin' Up demonstrators (including muah) where crafters (regardless of experience level) get to make a total of 21 cards (seven different designs from the three of us) with coordinating envelopes. The long short of it is everyone goes home with their own homemade cards and maybe prizes (as we will be giving these out throughout the afternoon) and hopefully a belly full of fun and laughter from this wonderful experience.

For those who will be coming from my neck of the woods, I have room for three more people if you decide to ride with me.

Where: North Salinas
When: Saturday, May 4th at 1pm
RSVP by April 26th
Fee: $35

If you have any further questions or would like to reserve a spot, please PM me.

Thank you!

My right brain reignited

Hi! Welcome to my page!

I am a reincarnated stamper. Eight years ago, a friend of mine introduced me to rubber stamping and card making. It only took that one workshop before I got hooked. Pretty soon, I was making my own cards and sending them to friends and family. I reluctantly became a Stampin Up demonstrator so that I could feed my habit at first, but then only good things came from my first workshop that I taught. I forged great friendships and realized how much I enjoyed teaching and being with other ladies who shared my passion. It was the best time of my life.

However, life's routines and fire drills got in the way, and suddenly, my rubber stamps sat unused and dried up in plastic tubs, with only cobwebs to keep their company.

Well, my right brain woke up from a giant nap as I am back now, recharged. Thanks to a very generous and talented hubby, I have a craft table customized to my liking and a bookcase to boot and are now happily occupying my craft room, where I have begun to play again!

Happy Stamping!
