I live in Port Lincoln, South Australia, and am married with 2 boys, aged 12 and 10. I am a qualifed Dental Assistant, but then moved into Office Administration with a fishing company.
I found stamping nearly 10 years ago, and haven’t looked back since. I really enjoyed having a creative outlet after the kids are in bed.
I stumbled across Stampin’ Up! about 9 years ago, and decided that if they ever came to Australia I would have to join. So on the day they opened, April 2006 I applied and became Demonstrator number 14.
Since that day, Stampin’ Up! has been my Full Time job.
Since then, I’ve had so much fun. Stampin’ Up! has become an important part of my life – apart from still loving the creativity of stamping, l really enjoy getting out and meeting new people, and also teaching from home.
I’ve been blessed with 7 Incentive Trips in 7 Years, and have had the opportunity to present Workshop Wow’s at Convention 2007. I have also presented at South Australian Regional Training events. In 2013 I presented a Class at the South Pacific Convention in Brisbane, and also on a much larger scale at the US Convention in Salt Lake City where nearly 6000 Demonstrators heard me speak. A very proud moment for me.
In 2012 I placed Number 1 Demonstrator of the Year (the last one ever), one of many many awards over the last 7 Years.
We have an incredible team of over 240 members from all over Australia. Together we make up The Artful Stampers. Not only are these women my team members, they have become very good friends, and I cherish the relationships we have.
