I went to a luncheon almost 20 years and there was a CTMH (known as "DOTS" back then) demo there showing how to make cards. She had catalogs to look through and was available to book a party with.
I booked a party, had her over to my house and me, my twin and our friends completely fell in love with her!! She remains a family friend to this day and my twin and I just went to her house 2 weeks ago for a workshop and sale.
I buy SU stuff through the fabulous LaLatty on this site and my CTMH demo friend likes looking at the SU stuff too
I found this site through the now-closed CardMaker forum. I stamp at my dining room table and my DH knows not to say a word about how messy the table is all the time
Great stories posted above......now who's next??!!
