I bought my first rubber stamp as a teenager nearly twenty-eight years ago. Over the years I increased my collection a few at a time, mainly using them to embellish letters and envelopes. Itís been about 8 years now (and a couple thousand stamps) since Iíve gotten into the more creative side of rubberstamping, paper crafting and scrapbooking. I already had quite a bit of experience teaching craft classes so it was only natural I take my love of paper arts into the classroom as well. I have been teaching paper crafting classes for 6 years.
I have taught classes or presented demos at:
|Just Plain Fun (Tacoma, WA)||Country Hearts (Steilacoom, WA)|
|StampIt-StickIt-LickIt (Eugene, OR)||Rubber Soul (Poulsbo, WA)|
|Funstamps/Stampeeze (Bothell, WA)||Sierra Rubber Stamps (Reno, NV)|
|Las Vegas Art Stamps (L.V., NV)||Rubber Marbles (Auburn, WA)|
|Cecil & Bird (Gig Harbor WA )||A Country Welcome (Sweet Home, OR)|
|Stamparadise (Kennewick, WA)||The Western WA State Fair Hobby Hall|
|The Paper Zone (several NW locations)||Alternative Artfest (Seattle/Bellevue)|
|Stamp Camp Northwest 98, 99 and 00||Olympia, WA Calligraphy group|
|inkogNEATo (Kent, WA)||Various church women's groups.|
|Various rubber stamp clubs.|
I have also been published in several paper crafting and stamping magazines .
