Recently I have been spending some time thinking about what I love about Stamping. I have been a demonstrator for over 8 years and was pondering why I still do what I love and love what I do.
People often ask me, How do I have time to fit it all in? Working full time and with half of the week away from home I sometimes wonder that too. It got me to thinking about how I joined Stampin’ Up! I was visiting a friend who said she was off to a party, and showed me the catalogue and I fell in love straight away. I wanted everything in that book and I had never been interested in paper crafting before. Since that time my passion for the products that Stampin’ Up produce hasn’t changed. I still get excited about a new catalogue and seeing new projects for the first time.
But there must be something else that makes me stay…..
Its the joy of creating and the time spent in my craft room, where the stress of my day job slips away…… Its the laughs and times that I spend with the girls making projects together…. Its the grin from ear to ear of someone making a card at a workshop for the first time and the joy of being able to say “I made that!”…..Its the joy of someone opening a handmade card and knowing it was made with love just for them…. Its the memories that continue on, when someone keeps your card or gift for much longer than they would have kept a store bought card….
Miss Molly in the picture above is always close by when I am stamping, she is one of my favorite stamping buddies. Is it that I love getting together with others and stamping? I love sharing stamping ideas with my customers and team. You can book a workshop or join my team here Mel Dunstan Stampin Up Site
