I'm a long time crafter. I've quilted and embroidered and knitted and I've scrapbooked.
Scrapbooking led me to cardmaking and that led me to Stampin' Up!. Once I discovered how easy Stampin' Up made papercrafting, I was hooked. Here was a world of gorgeous stamps and papers, where everything was high quality and colour co-ordinated. The looks were varied and fresh. This was a world of quality craft supplies, created by real crafters and available to me in my own home.
It was a short step from there to becoming a demonstrator myself. This has allowed me to take advantage of demonstrator discounts for my own crafting but more importantly, it let me share my love of papercraft by offering classes to other people. It started with friends and now the circle has widened so that the classes have created new friends, not just for me, but for the whole craft group.
It's been a real pleasure to show other people what they can do with a bit of guidance. It's wonderful to see people relax and abandon their worries for a while and to see other amaze themselves with their own creativity.
Now I have my own team of downline demonstrators, most of whom just want the chance to get their craft supplies at a reduced rate and some who have started classes of their own. If you live in New Zealand and would like to join my classes, or would like to buy some fabulous SU supplies or would like to join by team of demonstrators then leave me a message.
