Hi, my name is Gwen and I am a relative newcomer to stamping and to Stampin’ Up! I stumbled into stamping in December 2008 because my granddaughters wanted to make Christmas cards. Being the good Nan I dutifully took them to the local discount store and bought all the ‘necessary’ components for them to create their masterpieces. It wasn’t long before I became the one doing all the making and they doing all the playing! I couldn’t believe how much I enjoyed making these Christmas cards, even using the goodies from the discount store.
A couple of months on I had spent lots of money on different craft items and stamps, most of which I haven’t touched to this day. In April 2009 I was introduced to Stampin’ Up! I couldn’t believe the quality that I was being introduced to. I signed up straight away and I would have to say it would be one of the best decisions I have ever made. I love the quality, the way everything co-ordinates and how just one stamp set will allow you to finish a whole project. That to me is value for money!!
I am married to a wonderful man, who offers encouragement and is also at times brutally honest! We live on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland and are incredibly lucky to live in such a beautiful part of the world. I have four children, 10 grandchildren and twin boy great grandchildren. We also have two fur babies Lump and Twinkle Toes and I feel sure they let us live in their house, and cater to their every need!
I am deeply honoured to be part of Sunny Challenges, and I love the challenge to myself to create something different and interesting each week. The challenges each week are all about fun, and we all hope you do just that......have fun in creating with us.
