So a little bit about me…I am a 30 year old Mum/Wife/Daughter/Sister from North West Tasmania, Australia.
I feel I have many ‘layers’ (why does my mind jump to Shrek when I think of that)
In many other past times I have done several different things, I have dabbled in teaching, chef’ing, business, owned my own craft shop and now I am right here a Youth Worker and a Stampin’ Up demonstrator with the Hello Daysies/Crazy Crafters (and the best place to be!) I am not kidding when I say I am a member of one of the best Stampin’ Up! teams, I am so lucky and blessed!
I am so lucky to have an amazing and supportive family. They have supported my crafting passion since I began my crafting passion at just fourteen, so they have seen me ‘grow’ with my crafting. I have an amazing husband Declan, who is always there to offer me gorgeous hugs and never ending inspiration in life. He is my little ‘shorty’ (he is only 5ft 2 and I am 5ft 9, so there is a little height difference) but a never ending amount of love and we really are soul mates!
My son also loves to craft and quite often has craft days with Mummy!
I have tried my hand at a lot of different crafts including sewing, pocket scrapbooking, scrapbooking, card making, some off the page projects, jewellery making and I am sure plenty more that I have since forgotten about. My craft cupboard was once upon a time like a never ending closet.
I have since downsized and since having my son Elijah in 2014 I have had a little bit less space and ability to leave precious projects laying around *wink*
I decided to sign up as a Stampin’ Up demo in 2016 when I stumbled across my upline’s blog. I was already familiar with Stampin’ Up and had been a customer in the past. I hadn’t however used the products in years and I have never in fact until now considered myself a card maker. I love that the craft is in no way limited. I am looking forward to what the future holds for me in terms of memory keeping. The future is only bright!
I now have an amazing team myself within Stampin’ Up! and I love being a team leader. My favourite thing to do is to share this amazing hobby and the benefits it has in so many areas of life. I really have made life long friends through this hobby.
I am currently at Gold title with Stampin’ Up! which was an amazing achievement for me and I was so excited to get there and I was so blessed with the opportunity to be a Stampin’ Up! Artisan Design Team member which just blew me away! I am so grateful for the opportunity.
I received this beautiful Artisan Tiffany & Co bracelet when I was a member of the Stampin’ Up! Artisan design team. Funny story? I rang my husband to tell him about the bracelet and his answer?, “Tiffany who?” !!!! ~ He has since been educated!
This photo means a lot to me because it also highlights a tattoo that I have on my wrist “La Bella Vita” which is a constant reminder to myself that “Life is Beautiful” or “The Beautiful Life” in Italian.
This is important because I like to have this as a constant reminder that life is beautiful and to always be thankful and look to the positive.
I am a big believer in self care and advocating for mental health! So these are my big ‘whys’ and reasons for craft as it was part of my self care and keeping well! I will always recommend passions and hobbies and pursuing them as I believe it is a very important way to keep yourself well and happy.
Stampin’ Up! has really changed my life and taken me to new places. I have never been ‘overseas’ on my own and in 2019, Stampin’ Up! saw me boarding a plane to New Zealand to spend the week with my favourite Stampin’ Up! people. I have plans to travel a lot more with Stampin’ Up! and independently as Stampin’ Up! has brought me out of my shell and made me see the potentials!
I hope you get much enjoyment from reading my blog.
