Coming Full Circle

During my college days, I fell in love with stamping and card making when my best friend and I found Stampa Barbara stamps in Los Angeles. She and I collected rubber stamps everywhere we went. I can't believe this was before I was married or even moved to Santa Barbara and was introduced to the then famous Stampa Barbara store. Wow, that was over 25 years ago.

Now after being a Close to My Heart Consultant for several years I've finally found my love for stamping again. It's weird how things happen. Once the scrapbooking bug bit I slowly lost my energy for stamping and sold my vast collection of stamps on eBay. Even after I became a CTMH consultant I still didn't catch the bug. Since moving to Beaumont, I've found a group of wonderful ladies to scrapbook and stamp with and my love for both arts have merged. It was like riding a bike. With most of my new friends being Stampin Up! Demonstrators I made the decision to change companies since my CTMH business was kind of dormant after my move from the Santa Barbara area. I still love CTMH products but felt that the camaraderie of the group of Stampin Up! demonstrators in the area is what I needed to kick start my business and keep me motivated.

So, I've come full circle back to my stamping roots and card making foundations and have become a Stampin Up! demonstrator. I must admit my first love is Scrapbooking. I'm enjoying making cards with my new friends and scrapbooking has taken on a new zest. So watch out, Rae is Scrapbooking and Stamping now!!!!
