Default Demonstrator in Van Buren County, Michigan- anyone out there

I really don't know anyone but my upline and I only get together with her and some other people to do a stamp club once a month. She has a full time job and is busy with her own life. I would like to get to know some other people in my area who enjoy stamping. I can't seem to get into getting parties set up, so I've just been doing alot of swaps. I would really like some other people to talk to and get ideas ect.
Please help out a fellow stamper and possibly new friend!

Hey I am from MI and I know where Van Buren Co is. It is where Kalamazoo is located. I grew up in Charlotte. Would love to stamp with you but I live to far away. I have freinds who stamp in Grand Rapids. That is probably to far away for you though.

Welcome Marion
I'd love to get together too, but i'm in Ingham County (aka Lansing ) I've seen several posts on SCS regarding Michiganders so i'm sure you'll find several stampers in your area. We just have to keep this post seen.
Good luck!

Default MI demo

Go to the customer side of the SU website and click on the Find a Demo button, or whatever it is called. You can then input your location and SU will list the five closest demos to you.

If you are someone without a demo, you can do that too!

Hi Marion, I'm from MI also. I'm over in Livingston County. My first post here had quite a few other Michiganders saying "hello". I think there was a few from your area. Here is a link to that thread if you want to check it out:

http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...ic.php?t=23520

I think we should have a MI SCS get together since there are so many of us here.

Happy stamping!

Lynn

Hi Marion. I'm from Dorr in Allegan County, not too far from you. We have had a West Michigan get-togther already and will probably have another sometime soon.

Also, if you don't mind driving to Holland at the end of April, there is a GREAT seminar that takes place at Holland Christian High School for any and all demonstrators and potential demonstrators. It's a great way to meet demo's from the surrounding areas. Go to www.klompenstampers.com website to find out more information. Just click on the link for the Holland Spring Seminar. Maybe I'll see you there.

Er...Kalamazoo is in Kalamazoo County!

Van Buren County is east of Kalamazoo as I recall (I'm from Kalamazoo). I know there are tons of demos over in that area...wish I were, I'm in Wayne County!

WOW!
I can't believe the response!
I live in South Havenn near Lacota, Grand Junction, Bangor, Covert.
My parents live in Allegan and I used to work there.
I was with Stampin' Up! years ago then my husbands first wife died at age 30 from complications after recieving a heart transplant (3 years ago). We then got their 2 kids- Tiffaney now 14 1/2 who has been a diabetic since age 9, and Brian now 12 1/2 who was ADHD. Not being a nurse and never dealing with that kind if greaving process was something elce, let alone my two daughters, Skye now 17 and Kristen now 15, having to deal with two more kids in their home and mom having to split her time up more- (being divorced from dad was bad enough). Needless to say I needed some kind of release! Stampin' Up! became it. I had to give it up after a few months but was able to get back in in Oct. of last year, but
wanting some contact with others in my area. This website is a godsend!
I'll look for more posts!

Marian

Hi Marian,
I live in the west side of Kalamazoo. My kids go to Mattawan schools. My parents and my inlaws live in Bangor. I would love to have a new stamping buddy. My upline also has a full-time job and I don't hear from her often. You can PM me or send an email my way. I'm looking forward to hearing from you! My email is [email protected]

Boy I thought that I was doing pretty good and could remember my MI geography. I guess I should have said that it was West of Kalamazoo. OOPS
I hope you find some great stampers.

Default Demonstrator in Van Buren County- Anyone out there?

Hi Amy!
Yes I would like a stampin' buddy too!
I would love to remain in contact and possibly get together to stamp sometime (the sooner the better for me!)
I'm not to good on the computer, my kids know more than I do on how to do things. I did add your name and e-mail to my address book, but now can't figure how to send an e-mail. I know how to respond to one if sent to me, so posting this is the best I can do for now.
I'm so excited to hear from someone who knows the general area where I live.
Hope to hear from you soon!
Marian

Sounds good to me. Sounds like you're quite a drive away. I'll probably go to the Holland thing. I'm going to check out their website and get the info!
If nothing else I'll probably see ya there!
Thanks for responding to this post.

I'm a pending SU demonstrator (still waiting for my demo #, mailed it in on Wednesday) I just printed the Holland info, I'm in the thumb so that's quite a ways for me to come, but I'm very interested!

It's really great to hear from so many people who also enjoy stamping!
I havn't gotten to many close to me yet.
I mentioned the Holland Seminar to my upline, she's gone before and wants to go again, she said she hasn't read anything about it yet so I had her copy my info from their website. She said she can also do the "shoe box" thing on friday night so I guess I can go both days!
I hope I see some of you there!
I'll keep checking this post for more responses!
Thanks for everyones help & understanding.
Marian
