It's a play on my name...and a little bit too true. For some reason inspiration always seems to come in the wee hours of the night and then it's just so hard to make myself go to bed. Sometimes I'm up creating all night, other times I wake up super early and can't wait to create. I try to find balance, but the truth is, if I didn't have responsibilities in life, I'd be happiest if I was able to Stamp Til Dawn.
I started stamping and scrapbooking in 1993. At first I thought stamping was just decorating envelopes that I put in the mail...until I was introduced to D.O.T.S., which is now known as Close To My Heart. Suddenly a whole new world was opened up to me. in 1995 I decided that I wanted to hang out with the incredible women that designed all the cool cards my consultant shared at her parties. Little did I know how much that one decision would change my life!
I have now been with Close To My Heart for 20 years. During that time I have made some incredible friendships with my customers and fellow consultants, I have traveled all over the United States to attend and teach at our National Conventions and events, and I've even cruised through the Caribbean.
During the 20 years I have always been able to adapt my business to my life. When my son was young and it was more important to be his scout leader or volunteer with the youth at church, I scaled things back. When our family needed a little extra money to get us through, I scheduled more parties and events. Being able to adapt my business to fit in with my lifestyle and my family's needs has made the years fly by!
