Micheline "Mimi" Jourdain - Micheline_Jourdain
Hi! I am Micheline Jourdain, AKA Mimi A La Carte and I have my own gallery on Splitcoast Stamper since February 2015. Because I am not fluent in English, when Lydia invited me to join the Dirty Dozen, I did not quite understand and DECLINED!!!! Having some doubts, when my hubby got home from his travels, I asked him to translate, just to make sure.... Speechless, fell off my chair... WHAT, ME? I was ecstatic, honored and touched. I rushed Henri (my hubby) to the computer to write Lydia, saying I gladly accepted the invitation. Here I am!
I am married with Henri for the last 39 years, we own a duplex where our daughter (32yo), her hubby and 2 grand-daughters (11 and 13) live. We adopted last year. Ti-Minou, the cat! A river runs just outside our backyard which is very inspiring when I deal with tree branches, sunset, snow and all of what nature can bring.
I owned a stamp boutique, Mimi A La Carte, in Vankleek Hill, On and Montréal, Qc, for a total of 7 years. I’ve been addicted to stamps for more than 20 years. I go nuts over them! I also am honored by Penny Black, and once a month I publish a photo tutorial under Masterpieces with Mimi.
I never thought I’d be part of the Dirty Dozen and I am so thrilled, happy and honored to be here. I’ll be here for six months but it will be years that I will tell whoever wants to hear it, how I had decline such a super invitation...
Should you decide to write me, please forgive my grammatical errors and syntax but, you should make out what I mean.
ET VOILÀ !
