About Me

Midway, NC, United States
I retired from Bali Bras, Sara Lee Intimates. Married in Oct 1976. I love meeting new people so hope to hear from you. Drop me a line. I've been doing crafts of all kinds since I was a kid. I loved making things and especially things that are recycled. I had never stamped until 2001 when I went to a stamp class while on vacation. We went to a local store to buy the stamps we had used. OUCH. When we got home I saw a Stampin Up catalog and realized how much money I could save with their stamps and best part as they are sets that go together which makes for easy card making. After doing some thinking I decided I should sign up as a demo and see what happens. I didn't know the first thing about stamping and still learning. Retired from Sara Lee Intimates in Feb 2001. I was in sales after many years, since age 18, as an office person, secretary, office assistant, etc. I am out of Stamping Up since Spring 2017 but still have lots of supplies!!!! These days I'm back to quilting and having a great time.

Tip when using clear stamps

Don't lose all those small pieces now floating around in the clear box
for the Stampin Up clear stamps. When using wood, I write the name of the
set on the end of the wood so I'll know what set it goes back into.

Clear stamps were a problem. For anyone who knows me, I hate to throw things

There must be a use for it. Well there is for the rubber for the wooden stamps. I use pieces in behind wall photos to keep the picture straight as well as
under things that might scratch my tables.

Now having just finished a wonderful salad, it came to me. Why not keep the
piece the clear stamps were punched out of. Now there is a white background
and you'll quickly know what piece is lost. Check out the photo below.

I just popped them into the side with the white paper which makes them easier to see

By the way we're using this set in our January 2012 class. Remember....
no classes in Nov. - Dec.

My Blog

May, 2009 when I started the blog and it's still a learning experience even in 2017.

If you are ever looking for a retired stamp set, ask me, I might have it and let it go.

As a follower you'll get emails when I post things which I tend to do in batches, once or twice a month once I get back on schedule.

Thanks for stopping by and I appreciate all comments.
