Hi, it’s nice to meet you!

My home is nestled in the beautiful West Kootenays of British Columbia, Canada.  I am happily married to my best friend and loving husband Brandon and am a proud Mama of our two grown sons, Dallas and Austin. I truly enjoy the simple things in life … all things crafty, movies with happy endings and spending time with my family!   When I’m not busy creating in my craft room you will probably find me out in the garden, cooking something up in the kitchen or enjoying a little chit chat and coffee with my friends and family.

I have been a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator since November 2010 and to say it has been an amazing journey would be an understatement.  Saying yes to the Starter Kit was one of the best decisions that I have ever made!  I became a Demonstrator to enjoy the discount on the products that I had grown to love.  When I joined Stampin’ Up! I was a very busy mom of 11 and 9 year old boys, running them around to hockey rinks and ball fields, keeping track of schedules, working full-time … all the things us busy Moms do!  I was trying to fit in some creative me time when I could, but struggled to prioritize it or have the energy after a long “mom” day.  I had never thought about hosting classes or sharing my creativity with others … until I DID!!  

I started with a small group of my close scrapbooking friends and then when I got comfortable with that I started to invite some of the moms I met at the boys’ school or sporting events.  Slowly my shy, quiet self was coming out of her shell!  Before too long I was sharing my love of stamping and paper crafting with people I would meet and my friends were inviting their friends and over time we built this incredible community of crafty people that share a common interest.  This in it’s self is life changing!  To truly say that you belong to a community, help to build that community and to nurture the love of paper crafting within that community is such a blessing!!  Through creativity my life’s journey has been forever changed.  I have been blessed with wonderful opportunities, met so many amazing people and built lasting, meaningful friendships. I can’t wait to see what the rest of this journey brings ❤️

There is always a ‘why’ for doing what we do in our lives.  My Stampin’ Up! why is simple. “To help and inspire others to find and embrace their creativity”
