My Journey into the stamping world began in 2007 when I attended my first card class. I immediately fell in love with stamping and became an Independent Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in 2010. It didn’t take me very long to realize that I wanted to share my passion with others and demonstrate how easy it is to be creative with stamps, ink, and paper.
Currently, I hold monthly classes and offer workshops so hosts can earn free products. People who attend my events enjoy the social time as much as they enjoy being creative stamping cards/projects.. I am here to inspire you to take time for yourself and express your creativity in ways you never thought possible.
I have always enjoyed writing letters and sending cards to brighten up the recipient’s day. ” A handmade card is a hug with a fold in the middle.” I would love to help you send that “hug” to someone you know.
Family and Background: I have been a life long resident of Central Wisconsin and have been married to my husband, Dave since 1977. Our son, Nathan lives near Madison, WI with his wife and 2 children. My grandkids love crafting with me and my stamping area was dubbed “Grandma’s Workshop” by my grandson. Our daughter, Anne, is following her dream and pursuing her PhD in Marine Biology at Scripp’s Institute of Oceanography and lives in San Diego, CA.
While our children were home, I had the opportunity to be full-time stay at home mom. Once our youngest was in school full-time, I went back to school and pursued a degree in Nursing. Currently I am a Registered Nurse who works very part-time. Most days you can find me in my stamping area.
Hobbies/Interests: In addition to stamping/crafting, I enjoy reading, travelling, playing games, leisure bike rides and spending time with the grandkids.To view cards and projects that I made before May 22, 2015, please visit my former blog: Deb's Stampin' Grounds
