About Me  

My hometown is Calgary, AB but I was born and raised in Vancouver, BC. I'm a stay at home mom to 5 1/2 year old Taylor and 2 year old Jaiden and I've been married to Bill for 7 years. My life is constantly in high gear!

I attended my first SU workshop over 2 years ago and was just blown away, I immediately was hooked! I Never thought I could do anything crafty let alone make a business of it. I became a demo in May 2004 and I absolutely love it!

What's New?

Fall has approached and Calgary has already seen some snow...nothing major, but, definately snow. The mornings are brisk as I take Taylor to Kindergarten but not to cold that Billy can't still ride to work. The leaves are falling and colours are so vibrant with colours of orange, red, yellow and brown. I absolutely love Fall, it's the most beautiful season of the year.

My customers definately have not missed a beat...as soon as September approached I started getting calls to book workshops, everyone is excited about starting to make their Christmas cards.

** Booking Incentive for September and October - book and host a workshop with me in September and October and you will get to choose a book to look coupon for free Stampin' Up! merchandise, choose a large Classic Stampin' Pad and also receive a coupon worth $5 off your next purchase.

The theme for October and November workshops is Christmas...but of course!

Marker & Watercolor Crayon Club Participants WANTED!

Stampin' Up! Markers - have you been thinking about the Stampin' Up! markers but you just didn't want to put all that money out all at once. I'm looking for groups of 4 participants in each club. Each member will spend a certain amount of money each month and each month they will receive a colour group of markers, at the end of 4 months everyone in the club will have all 48 markers and a horizontal storage case that keeps both tips inked evenly. Email me for details if you are interested in signing up.

Watercolor Wonder Crayons - same ideas as the markers. The Watercolor Wonder Crayons debuted this year and they have proven to be very popular in the 3 months that they have been around. Again, I need 4 particiants in each club and each month you will receive a colour group, at the end of 4 months everyone in the club will have all the watercolor crayons and a beautiful storage tin. Email me for details if you are interested in signing up.

By signing up to be in either of these clubs or both you are able to get some great product that's been on your wish list for some time at a more manageable price.
