The Unexpected Joy of Being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator

October 24, 2019 By

My sister (also a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator), her husband and a good friend of theirs are currently touring around in Tennessee.   The friend, Edwina, a new Stampin’ Up! demo, brought some stamping supplies to work on in their spare time.  Alas she forgot to pack a necessary supply–a punch.  I asked my sister Janet to send me the neat story.  Read on…….. “We are on vacation and I…

Back on Your Feet

October 24, 2019 By

I had to pull out my Back on Your Feet stamp set and create a card to send to my sister-in-law a.s.a.p.   She lives clear across the country in New Jersey and fell the other day, breaking her shoulder in several places.  Not good.  I hope this little sloth perks her up just a bitty bit.   Shop for any of today’s supplies by clicking on the desired…

Stamping at the Mi Wuk Library

September 18, 2019 By

I really look forward to stamping at the Mi Wuk Library every month.  I’ve mentioned before that this stamping event has been going on since February 2004.  A few of those original stampers are still attending and new stampers join in every month.  It’s really a lot of fun and friendship.     I’ll continue stamping at the library until the moving truck pulls us out of town–whenever that…

Finishing our 2-Hour Stamping Time

August 2, 2019 By

Finishing out 2-hour stamping time was rather bittersweet.  Leading a stamping class is always fun for me but this ‘teenage’ stamping opportunity was a totally awesome surprise.  I won’t call the group charming because that term just doesn’t quite fit.  But they were educated, polite, full of gentle and respectful humor and just plan great! Our final project was a sour cream container.  And it was to be filled with…

Above the Clouds

August 1, 2019 By

Our second ‘teenager’ card used the Above the Clouds stamp set, and seeing the greetings these kids chose for their cards leads me to believe there is a good future ahead with this generation. This was my sample card:           Again, I loved how they just took creativity by the hand and went off with their own interpretations of the sample card.  They loved the…

Stamping with Unknown Teenagers

July 31, 2019 By

A few days ago a local Mi Wuk Village acquaintance texted me, asking if I’d be interested in holding a class for her four grandchildren who would be visiting for a few days.  Let’s see:  we’re moving.  Knee deep in boxes and mess.  Can’t find the top of my stamping table.  Stamping with unknown teenagers.  Sure!  Why not.  For me, stamping is such a stress reliever and opportunity to…

Moving Isn’t Easy

June 15, 2019 By

That’s an understatement.  Moving isn’t easy. Packing up a stamp room (which I’ll admit I’m very lucky to have enjoyed for the past 17 years) and at the same time, cleaning it up recent messes, isn’t easy. I’m compelled to complete cards that were prepared for classes.  I’m also moving out of the 2018-2019 Annual Stampin’ Up! Catalog and into the new and awesome 2019-2020 (can you believe that!?)…
