1st Blog Entry of my Journey as a New Demonstrator!

Hey stampers! In case you are not on my e-mail list, here is a copy of this month's (July) e-Newsletter. This is my first one so hopefully I will improve as time goes on! :)


Yesterday I went to my upline's house (the lovely Peg Adams) who graciously allowed me to come to her club free oof charge. I made three cards and she started the fourth. My wrists were hurting from carpal tunnel (crafting has a dark side - Carpal Tunnel Syndrome!) so she gave me the rest of the elements of the card so I could finish it at home. In my next entry I will upload the pictures of the cards Peg had designed for us to make. I had so much fun meeting two new friends who love to stamp. We had a great time and I got a good idea of what I'll need for my first workshop. I'll need to place one more order when money allows to get the basics. Peg generously offered to let me borrow anything she has (like the scoring tool, heat tool, and products to pass around and let people take a look at), even have the workshop at her home if I wanted to. I have the best upline!
