My mom was the person that got me interested in making things with my hands. In fact, we had to show our Talented Fingers each time we made a gift for each other growing up. As an adult I still enjoyed making things especially with stamps. But I struggled with what my cards looked like. I had such a hard time combining stamps into a look I really loved.
Things changed when I attended my first StampinUp workshop with my youngest sister. All of sudden I loved the cards I made. They looked just like the one that had been demonstrated to me; all the stamps in a stamp set coordinated and the paper and ribbon matched. No longer did I have to struggle over finding things that matched and looked good together. This was great and I was hooked on StampinUp.
My sister was even more hooked than I was and joined up as a demonstrator right away. I loved hearing about all the fun she was having while earning money at the same time. Tthis was something I could do when I retired I thought to myself. Well, I held out about 4 months and I too became a demonstrator. I have had the best time teaching what I love to others and seeing them love the projects they create with their own hands. Now we all have Talented Fingers.
