Thank you so much for stopping by my FaceBook page! I’m honored you’re here and hope to visit with you in person one day soon.
I have been a papercrafter since 2003 when I began scrapbooking. Later I got into card making, falling in love with Stampin’ Up! products. I was on again off again with my craft for a number of years, until I became an empty nester when my only child, my son joined the U.S. Navy. At that time in spring 2019, I found great comfort in the therapy of card making.
Card making was my therapy then and still is today! I enjoy quiet hours creating fun and beautiful cards for all the amazing people in my life.
It wasn’t long after my left that I found my opportunity to contribute to my son’s mission without ‘mothering’ him by supporting other military personnel going through their journey without family support. I send on-going pen pal cards and letters to Navy Recruits going through boot camp or other personnel stationed on ships or bases overseas, as well as one-off needs for birthday, get well, encouragement, congratulations, Veteran’s Day and Christmas cards. I send out upwards of 1500 cards per year! I love it! Proceeds from my card classes and your Stampin’ Up! product purchases contribute to card making supplies and postage supporting these initiatives. I have partnered with local senior volunteers from the Ladies Club at Hacienda Heights in Riverview, FL, providing them some creative crafting time making cards for these pen pal efforts. Their help is greatly appreciated in meeting the demand for cards to our military. It’s a wonderful reward to hear how much fun the ladies have and how grateful the military recipients are.
Join me for a card making class or shop product for your next project today! I offer greeting card and 3-D paper crafting classes utilizing the highest quality Stampin’ Up! products. Classes are open to the public and held in the Art Monkey Emporium studio. Or if you are not local to my area, you can stamp with me from home either through my monthly classes, Stampin’ Up! kits or the Paper Pumpkin subscription. Private classes are also available for crafters interested in earning free Stampin’ Up! products. Let’s talk soon!
All my best to you,
Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator
