Well, this morning I took the plunge. I became a Stampin UP! demonstrator. I am happy with the decision. I have been toying with the decision to join the Stampin UP! team for a while. I have always loved making cards. I can remember making stamped cards 20ish years ago. I even made my son's birth announcements (stamped of course) and have played with stamps here and there over the years. The last year and a half, my playtime has gotten more and more importance in my life. I spend most weekends down in my craftroom, playing with my stamps, ribbons, embellishments and I love the satisfaction of a productive weekend. I anticipate the arrival of my start up kit...and am ready to make the plunge and exploring my hobby in a new direction.
