My name is Connie Babbert and I’ve been a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator since May of 2002, and just had my 20th Stamp-a-versary! I love the instant gratification and satisfaction I get from creating cards, 3D projects, gifts and home décor items! Since becoming a demonstrator, I have met so many new people and have made great friends! Plus, by working hard, I’ve joined the top 1% of demonstrators and earned 12 wonderful Stampin’ Up! Incentive Trips to Alaska, Fiji, Hawaii, Caribbean, Mediterranean Cruise, Thailand, Alaska again, The Greek Isles, Maui and Maui Elite, the cancelled Western Caribbean, and now the Baltic Cruise! I love people saying to me…wow! You made this? I’m married to a great guy, Eric. We have two married sons, Adam to Beth who have two of our grandsons…Carter and Dax, and Ross to Allie who have our granddaughter, Quinn, and another grandson, Brody! I am blessed!
My name is Mary Brown (aka stampercamper) and I’ve been a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator since 1999! I have been doing crafts all my life but fell in love with stamping the first time I tried it. Being a quilter also, I love how start to finish is SOOOO much quicker and there is just so many different things you can do. My specialty seems to be clean and simple designs! This is such a great hobby filled with wonderful people – both other demonstrators and customers who are now friends. When I am not stamping, I teach at our local community College. I am in the health sciences field and teach our new students. I teach approximately 200 students each term. Randy and I recently made the decision to downsize and moved from our home of 26 years in Xenia to Dayton close to the Dayton mall – and by close, I mean less than a half mile. That sure is interesting around Christmas. We have two ‘fur children’ (sh…don’t tell them they’re dogs!) who were both rescues. I look forward to sharing ideas with all of you!
