About Me

I was born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago, IL and have crafted for as long as I can remember. I worked as an insurance broker for 18 1/2 years but crafting was always my weekend hobby. My husband, Bob, and I married in 1990 while he was stationed in Las Vegas, NV with the USAF. We moved to Honolulu, HI in 1997 where I was first introduced to Stampin’ Up!. In September 1998 I signed up to be a demonstrator where I was able to be Mom by day and demonstrator by night. In 2001 the USAF moved us again, this time to Florida. Bob retired in 2003 and we chose to make Florida our permanent home. We have one daughter, Gina, who has a degree in film production and works full time as a graphic design project manager.

Paper crafting is my passion and I use Stampin’ Up! products exclusively to create cards and 3D projects. I’ve worked my business full-time since 1998 and have earned 18 incentive trips including the company’s 38th $1,000,000 career-to-date sales achiever. I’ve placed in the top 100 demonstrators in the U.S. and globally from 2013 – 2019.

I’m excited to share my love of paper crafting with you!
