Here’s a little bit about me~
My name is Heidi and I live in
I have always loved crafts for as far back as I can remember. Over the years, I have been introduced to several different crafts. I am a floral designer, a painter, a stamper, and I have made jewelry. I started painting when I was 12, my Mom asked me if I would like to take a painting class with her. I loved it & have been painting ever since. I am now 36 and I started stamping when I was 17, back in 1988. Man that sounds like another lifetime ago! *gasp* My Mom gave me some stamps and ink pads for Christmas that year. To be honest I thought they were really neat but I wasn’t sure what exactly I was going to do with them. Back then we didn’t have any stamping stores around here. I can remember making some stationary & stamping on envelopes (mail art—who knew!). I still have some of those first pieces and they are kind of fun to look back on at times. There have been so many changes with stamping over the years and I love stamping now more than ever! Before my youngest son was born I was a manager at one of the local floral shops. It has been sometime since I have worked with fresh flowers (other than from the garden) but I still do some silk arrangements every now & then and I still dabble with jewelry making too.
For the past few years I have been a SAHM and teaching stamping classes in my home. I have also taught classes at two LSS and for Community Ed. This January will be my two year anniversary as a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator. Also in November I received one of the most exciting phone calls from Stacey Caron, President of Spellbinders Paper Arts. I was asked to join the Spellbinders 2008 Design Team!! I am so excited and honored to be given this opportunity!! I can’t wait until January when we will all get to meet in
Well I guess that’s me in a nutshell! Most of my time is spent with family, friends, teaching classes & stamping whenever I can! *wink*
