Full-time Grammie and Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.
Interests: I became a Stampin' Up! demonstrator because I love stamping! I love being part of a company that not only inspires my creativity with exclusive stamps and accessories, but also cares about their demonstrators and customers as much as they do about selling their product!
