I just received this letter in the mail and it’s hard to believe that 10 years have flown by so fast. I can’t wait to add the pin to my lanyard and display it at the upcoming Stampin’Up! OnStage event in Savannah.
I became a Stampin’Up! demonstrator because I was attracted to the discounts and 10 years later it’s been an adventure! I immediately started thinking on how Stampin’Up! has impacted my life during these past 10 years and here’s my list…
- Lifelong friendships: I’ve met so many new friends that have enriched my life. A few of us have formed such strong bonds that it’s hard to imagine not ever meeting them.
- Creative outlet: I have occasionally considered myself a creative person or wannbe creative person. It wasn’t until I started making cards with Stampin’Up! products that I unleashed my creative side!
- Self-confidence: I was never a shy person to begin with, but with Stampin’Up!, I’ve had the self-confidence to share my thoughts and creativity.
- Leadership: I’ve learned with Stampin’Up! that I could motivate and inspire people to engage with their vision and unleash their own creative side. We all have one and it is always a pleasure to help others find their’s.
- Fun and Joy: It’s so much fun to create something for someone and see the look on their face when they realize it was made especially for them. Stamping and creating has many rewards and I’m happy and blessed that I found Stampin’Up! to help me find new friends, a creative outlet, a sense of accomplishment and much more.
I’m looking forward to many more years as a Stampin’Up! demonstrator and can’t wait to meet all the new friends I will make along the way!
Some of you might remember last year around this time I was working on projects for the my God-daughter/niece’s wedding. I’m thrilled to announce that she is going have a baby in September. Recently we my family gathered for a gender reveal celebration and we were all happy to learn that it is a boy!
I had the honor of being the very first to know the gender since I had to prep the canvas and fill the balloon with colored water. Thank goodness they handed me the envelope only a couple of hours before, the knowledge would have been so tempting to share!
You can see the emotion on my sister’s face to learn she’s going to be a grandmother to a boy! We all shed a few tears of joy.
Congratulations to Alexandra and Brandon and their baby boy!
My sister and I have been pinning so many things on Pinterest as we get ready for the baby shower…and she’s due in September!
I have two special anniversaries coming up, my wedding anniversary to the Best Husband Ever and the 2nd anniversary of my Oviedo Mall Stampers Class.
While I was designing cards for my class my husband sent up a glass of wine with my son.
Meanwhile he was downstairs preparing a delicious dinner. Best Husband Ever!
On April 1st my friend Deb and I will celebrate our 2nd Oviedo Mall Stampers Anniversary. We’re excited to welcome everyone and will enjoy giving away gifts to our stampers.

I host 3 regular monthly classes and sometimes I just need help to come up with new ideas. There are times when I think the ideas are great as is and why change a good thing? For my monthly Oviedo Mall cards I copied two cards from a couple of talented stampers.
This card was inspired by Lynn Starl, you can see her original post HERE.
The above card was inspired by Tana Boser, one of our 2017 Artisan Designers. You can see her original card HERE.
My stampers loved these cards and I’m glad I found them!
My baby boy is not a baby anymore, he recently turned 18 and we celebrated with a few family members. I got nostalgic and started going through previous birthday photos and wow, what a difference…he’s turned into this bearded young man!
Join me down memory lane as I reminisce on the little boy I once had.
Happy 18th Birthday Jared!

My cousin’s daughter Rachael is having her 4th child and 3rd daughter! To celebrate this joyous occasion my cousin Leslie threw her a Baby Sprinkle. Here are a few pictures of the event. I have to say that Leslie outdid herself as usual and hosted a great Sprinkle!

Sisterly love, Rachael and Monica.
What a spread!
What’s a party without a cake!
Here’s the card I made for Rachael, I was inspired by Sandy Hancock’s card.
A few more hearts
My gift was a bouncy spinner baby thingy and I had it shipped to her house. I wanted her to see what I got her so printed a copy of it and had it dangle from the top of the inside.
A mother’s Love!
