Default Newbie from Michigan!

Hello everyone!

I am a new member to the SCS board and just signed up to be a Stampin Up Demonstrator.

I am from Niles, MI and have two boys 7 and 10. I am married to a wonderful husband for 13 years. I have been cardmaking for about a year and have just recently started utilizing my stamps with scrapbooking and love it. I look forward to sharing ideas and meeting new friends.

I really enjoy looking at the gallery all your work gives me lots of inspiration!

Welcome to SCS!

You will get some great ideas here and you will also find that there are so many helpful, friendly ladies who will answer any Q's you have.

If you don't have a comfortable chair, you may want to invest in one! You will probably spend a lot of time sitting in front of you screen ooohing and aaahing over the great cards.

Welcome! You will love this place and find it addictive. I'm not from MI but spend summers in Traverse City. And to Lara, I have fond memories of working at CSI just outside of Dexter. Lots of stampers in MI!

MWDStamp - summers in Traverse City don't translate to working "down here" did you live near Ann Arbor previously?

HI Angie,

Another Michgian (Shelby Twp.) stamper here. You'll have a great time here and you'll learn so much your brain won't be able to absorb it all. I think that's why computers were invented so it can do the absorbing for you to find later. I've saved more tutroials than I'll ever get to in this lifetime.

Enjoy,
Rox

It's about time the weather improved in this state!

Lara,
I guess I should have explained a bit more. Would you believe I lived in Toledo and commuted to Dexter! 54 miles door to door. It was a great job and worth the drive. I have never been a full time resident of MI, but have spent summers in TC all my life. My neighbor up there is the one who introduced me to SU and stamping.

Hi Angie,

Welcome to SCS! I live in Granger but I go to church in Niles. I once saw a woman carrying an SU bag at church. You wouldn't happen to go to FMC in Niles? If so, I'd love to hook up with you! I've been wanting to start a card ministry at the church and could use some help, if you're interested....and if you are the lady I saw at church

Hi Michelle! No, I am not the woman you seen at the FMC in Niles. With being so close maybe we will have to get together sometime.
