Happy New Year!!!
I hope you all enjoyed your holiday and Christmas, if you celebrate!!!
I believe 2022 is going to be an EXCEPTIONAL year!!!
It's been a rough go for the last couple of years, but I truly believe things will turn around in 2022~
Although things have been tough, the situation and limitations as a result of the Covid crisis allowed me to make some positive lifestyle changes, such as reconnecting with nature and my level of health and fitness. I found myself outdoors a LOT more and truly developed a passion for Kayaking and Hiking!!!
Not only was I able to take an inventory of my activity level, I was also faced with a decision to retire or not. I've decided to continue to work for now, but also was considering what I will do to supplement my pension so that I can do some travelling when the world opens up!!!
With that, I have made a decision to return to my roots with regard to paper crafting and focus on building a small business as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.
My passion for Card Making and Scrapbooking thrived way back in the early 2000's when a friend brought some Stampin' Up! Stamps into work. I have to admit, I was quickly hooked and developed a passion for the high quality products and the ability to coordinate papers, colouring tools, stamps, sentiments in a quick and easy manner..... I'm thinking it was around 2000 as I recall my now 25 year old son Jon crawling under the table when I was holding classes!!!!
THAT will certainly be frowned upon now!!!! ...although I'm sure he has other interests to occupy his time these days!!!
I'm totally excited to provide live classes as well as opportunities for virtual classes and workshops to those who live in Canada!
Please follow my blog to keep on top of what's happening and if you're so inclined, I would love you to like and share my business page with your friends!
