I have always loved to “make stuff” for as long as I can remember.  I still have a scrapbook of memories from my freshman year of high school.  According to a friend, I am old enough to have taught Moses and I went to high school with dinosaurs (evidently my prom date was a T-Rex ), so you get an idea of how old that scrapbook is now.

About 18 years ago, a couple of friends got me interested in Creating Memories.  It took one afternoon and I was completely hooked.  Over the years I have gotten away from scrapbooking (sadly, and now it just seems overwhelming to restart), and have gotten into cards.

I found a beautiful Stampin’ Up stamp set, Lovely as a Tree, on ebay and purchased it.  I was amazed at the beauty, quality, versatility and detail of the (still current) stamp set, and that started my journey with SU.  Almost 2 years ago, I joined SU as an independent demonstrator but only as a hobbyist.  Now, I am looking to branch out to help pay for my SU habit, but I understand that, as a high school teacher, my time is limited.

Please join me on my journey as I go outside of my comfort zone and build from a hobbyist to an active (I hope!) demo.
