In honor of Galentine’s Day, I thought I would share a few of my amazing Galentine’s who stamp with me!!! It has been almost 20 years that I have been a demonstrator and I have met some amazing people through the years!!!
Over the 20 years I have been a demonstrator, I have gone through A LOT of life changes/events. I started holding classes in my teeny tiny apartment with no overhead lights. Those who came to my classes there….you are AMAZING! It was so tight in that room and dark and the stairs to get to that apartment were a bit scary!
Next, I moved into a townhouse that was fabulous. We stamped in the kitchen. When my classes were really big, I had to get out the “kid’s table” (aka a card table) and we squished into that room and had a great time! I was always forgetting something so I had to run upstairs to my stamp room to get whatever it was. We always laughed about how many times I had to go up there.
I lost my grandparents and so many of my stampers were there for me. During one class, I got a phone call about my Grandpa not doing well and everyone said they would leave so I could go. I decided to go the next day instead but it was so nice to have such wonderful support during those times.
Brad and I got married and then came the pregnancies! Everyone was so supportive and amazing through all of them. Some knew about my first pregnancy and the miscarriage. Then we had the joy of the second pregnancy and I had so many blessings poured upon us. I felt like every class/event I did that Spring was a celebration. The surprise I got when I walked into class in Paris and at the Library from the ladies was just amazing! I also had a full blown Baby Shower thrown by 2 of my close stampers. Baby Ziggy was so loved and has so many “aunts” and “grandmas.” I got a lot of support during my pregnancy with Alex as well even though it was partially during covid times.
I could share a million stories because of course I’m a talker but also the more I type these the more I think of. It brings tears to my eyes thinking about the love, support, happiness, and fun I have had over the years with Stampin’ Up! and meeting all of you! Near or far, I love you all and you are the best Gals a girl could ask for! Happy Galentine’s Day to you today and every day!!! May we continue to love and support one another!
