Sticky Saturday


I am happy to introduce my buddy, Jill S, to you all today. Although we live far apart, we have become friends through UDI.

Here is what Jill wanted to share with you all....
I was introduced to Stampin’ Up! from a friend that was trying to get her business started. I thought it (SU!) was a pretty cool thing to do, but “I” would never do it, let along become a demonstrator. Well, guess what…I just had my 3rd year anniversary last month of being a SU! demonstrator, and was invited by Max to become member of UDI a year ago after meeting her in another online group that was trying to form. These 2 decisions have been fantastic decisions for me. Since I have been with SU! and UDI, I have met many wonderful people and have made so many new friends. I have really enjoyed working with and getting to know all the wonderful UDI members. I am excited about where my stamping business is heading, one of the things is that I have recently started a technique class, and we are having so much fun in these classes.

I live in Cairo , Georgia , but my full-time “day” life consists of work at Florida State University in Tallahassee , Florida . I hope to have the opportunity (my wish would be soon) to run my stamping business on a full-time basis rather than working for someone else. I have been married going on 11 years to my husband Ken, who puts up with all my stamping and stamping supplies…he sends me to my stamping room when I misbehave (I try to misbehave as often as I can). I am mother to Harley (our cat), Zeus and Ginger (our Basset Hounds) and Grandmother to Bigboy (Zeus and Ginger’s son).

In my “spare time” I enjoy stamping “of course”, as well as other crafts, reading, watching movies, spending time outside, and most importantly spending time with my family and friends.
