Somebody should have been here to provide intervention...

When I was a new demonstrator (less than 2 years ago), it would make me crazy to see cards like this that had every imaginable product used on one card...and now I've gone and done it.  I apologize to you if you are new and it makes you crazy too!  Believe me, not all of my cards have this much product on it.
I originally started making cards because I was a scrapbooker with TONS of product.  I was already rubber stamping on my scrapbook pages and was really into all the different techniques you could do with rubber stamps and ink.  Then I admitted to myself that I should not be buying cards when I had all of this stuff to make cards with, so I started making my cards as well.  Happily working away at my hobby, I often looked at magazines for inspiration and instruction.  In those magazines, I found myself drawn to a certain rubber stamp company that had the most beautiful ads and gorgeous stamps.  That company was Stampin' Up! of course!  I went online to find a demonstrator and called her.  I told her I wanted to be able to buy at a discount, so lets sign me up as a demonstrator!  A lot more happened in between that phone call and when I actually became a demonstrator, so I'll make a long story short. I actually was a hostess for about 2 years before I finally became a demonstrator.  Now here I am happily creating paper crafts...and I get to teach others what I'm learning.  It really is such an awesome job to have!!
