Thanks for visiting Amy’s Inklings!
I LOVE paper. I really, really LOVE paper. I love the feel of it in my hands. And I love the endless colors, textures and patterns. I used to be in Print Production many moons ago. It was fascinating and I loved my job. Then I married, became a mom, and was fortunate to be able to stay at home with our twin boys.
When our children were very young, I remember thinking, “How can I parlay my love for paper and rubber stamping into a way to earn a little extra money?” Just a few days later someone told me about a Stampin’ Up! party that she was going to attend. “What’s a Stampin’ Up! party?” I asked. And when she answered, I knew in that very moment that I was going to become a consultant.
I had a successful business for several years that I LOVED. Stamping was my joy – and at times my therapy! Whenever I got stressed at the end of the day, my husband would say, “Honey, I have the boys. Why don’t you go to your craft room and stamp.” And after stamping something new I was a new person!
Now our children are in high school and will be leaving in the near future for college.
I realized that I needed to nurture a passion outside of our beautiful family. And I also found myself yearning for more time with my girlfriends. It was then that my hubby suggested Stampin’ Up! again. And my new dream unfolded.
I now hold monthly Girls Night Out/Craft Nights in our home in Woodstock, GA and I also have two stamp clubs that meet monthly. I also use my Stampin’ Up! business for fundraising purposes.
My passion for stamping is more than it used to be. I think, breathe and dream rubber stamping. And through my Stampin’ Up! events I’m enjoying the fellowship of other women It’s a win win!
