I have enjoyed the art of rubber stamping about 12 years and for 10 of those years I have been a demonstrator with Stampin' Up! I absolutely love to stamp and to share this wonderful hobby with all my girlfriends! Prior to stamping, I took some art classes, which taught me that I couldn't draw or paint. Then, I took some graphic art classes. I found graphic art very interesting, but I wasn't looking for a new career. When a friend introduced me to the art of rubber stamping, I was so excited, happy and relieved. Excited because I quickly realized the possibilities of rubber stamping are limitless. Happy and relieved because I didn't have to be an "artist" to be creative. I could pound some ink on a rubber stamp (designed by someone else) and slap it on a piece of cardstock. Instant gratification--instant happiness--smile!
