Teaching and crafting have been my passions for as long as I can remember. My college degree is in Elementary education-I LOVE KIDS. And while I have two beautiful almost grown up kids of my own, they are, like I said, almost grown. I started a Stampin’ Up! career 17 years ago and found that I just love teaching!

Fast forward 17 years, and here I am. A married wife of 20 years, a loving mom to a 18 and 21 year old – and realizing that one child has already flown the coop, and it won’t be long before the other one does the same. What will I do to fill my days???

After thinking long and hard, I created the perfect job for me. A job where I could sleep late most mornings., where I could teach what I wanted, when I wanted, and how I wanted. A job where I could laugh loudly and share my crafting with anyone who walked through my doors-Yup, that’s it, in a nutshell, my perfect job is– coordinating, planning and throwing the perfect creative party….for YOU! Be it a child’s 6th birthday party, an engagement shower, or Mom’s day out with the girls-I will be here, ready to entertain, teach and make you feel oh so happy!
