Michelle Zindorf - Zindorf
West Alexandria
Oh my, Wow! Still can’t believe it, me a Dirty Girl? I was so stunned when I received the Confidential PM from Julie. I had to read it three times, and then get my husband to read it, as I jump around the room. I’m still amazed.

I’m Michelle Zindorf and I’ve been a member here on Splitcoaststampers since 2004. If you look way back in my gallery you will see how much I have grown as a Stamper by visiting this site and stamping, stamping, stamping. I love it! My interest in stamping came about by attending a stamping workshop with a friend. I now have thousands of stamps and that friend that took me to the stamping workshop, probably only has a handful. Lucky for me, the one with the most stamps in the end wins, right?

I was born and raised in Dayton, OH. I lived there for 43 years and then moved to a little rural town, West Alexandria and commute to Dayton each workday. I work as a Finance Assistant for AIDS Resource Center Ohio, a nonprofit organization that assists people infected and affected by HIV. I’ve been married to my husband and best friend, Russ, for 17 years. We are empty nesters now, with two sons, Jesse, 26, and Mitchell, 24, now off on their own. I have one Granddaughter, Hailie Jade, who is the light of my life!

I’ve had no formal art training outside of one watercolor class. Although, I consider myself a Pastel Artist, having sold quite a few paintings of still life and of rural landscapes of my area. But, stamping is my number one craft. I get so much pleasure out of creating something quickly with rubber stamps.

Well, here I am, part of the Design Team. What an honor and privilege it is to have an opportunity to be part of this super-wonderful team. I promise I will give you my very best each and every month.
