So for the past few days I have been working on remodeling my craft room.  I somehow decided that it wouldn't be so hectic to remove the popcorn(that's what I call it) from the ceiling, I mean, I wasn't going to be removing it, no big deal! Wrong! While our contractor mentioned that I did not need to remove everything from the room, just the big items, I decided, nah, I'll just go ahead and everyone everything. OMG, what a work it was!  I've been scrapbooking/paper crafting for over 10 years, not as a demonstrator, but just on my own.  I'm also an avid book reader and I've purchased many, many books these past years.  I also have a affinity to collecting "Wonder Woman" items, that collection has grown ten fold!  My craft room serves as a craft, book reading, collecting, relaxing room; that's a lot of items to have in one room.  Anyhow, the popcorn has successfully been removed and we decided that since the walls are now bare, let's go ahead and paint it!  Which is a smart idea and it saves me the hassle of removing the items later on again from my room. So needless to say, I've received my Stampin' Up! Starter kit and I have not had a chance to begin creating nor stamping!  I haven't even put up the Christmas tree!! 

I think positive, so no worries.  In the end, it'll all be worth it and it'll all be better!  I'll try to post some photos of my room in its pre-and-post condition.  Have a great evening!

Act Two: I'm a Stampin' Up Demonstrator-again

Hi there, I'm super excited because I recently signed up to become a new Stampin' Up! demonstrator and I'm ecstatic!  I really am!  I actually was a demonstrator back in 2000 or sometime around there, but that adventure didn't last long.  It was difficult for me to meet my quarterly deadlines and even though I loved the products...blah, blah, blah, the point being that this time around, I've learned from my mistakes and I went from Stampin' Up! customer and to now demonstrator!  I have a great Upline, my friend/co-worker Maria K. Hi Maria! And her Upline is awesome!  So I'm excited.  I've been a Scrapbooker/card-marker for over 10 years.  I've come a long way from using spray adhesive on my scrapbooks-gasp! I know, crazy, but you learn!

Anyhow, this time will be different because I have a plan to do better with Stampin' Up and I plan on following that plan!  Thank you for the applause, much appreciated.  Oh and BTW, I'm also new to this blog writing be patient with me as I navigate through this new "blog" world and share my Stampin' Up! adventures with you.
