This is my 10th anniversary with this hobby!
I've always been crafty since my mother taught me to sew when I was 5. Hand sewing progressed to crocheting, then sewing with a machine. I asked for my first sewing machine for Christmas when I was 12. I sewed doll clothes and later my prom dresses, then much later, I sewed clothes and cloth diapers for my kids.
I got into Creative Memories after I had kids because a friend sold it and I liked the idea of preserving precious memories of my children while they grew. I noticed my demo often used rubber stamps on her scrapbook pages instead of endless pages of letter stickers and I wanted to get some alphabet stamps to use with my scrapbooks.
I attended my first Stampin' Up party in 2003 and I've been hooked ever since. Now I have about 300 stamp sets, mostly SU, some PTI and TAC and I'm an avid collector of Elzybells stamps.
Almost everything I've learned about stamping, I learned on SCS and I'm very grateful for the community on here!
