I have always loved Arts and Crafts so when I moved to Suisun and stumbled upon Mainely Stampin I thought I was in heaven. I loved the products, the staff and especially the inspiring and creative classes. Over the years I had taken dozens or more like hundreds of classes. When the former owner Terry called me and asked me if I would be interested in purchasing the shop I thought what a great opportunity to own a business where I am totally passionate about the product so I jumped at the chance. I have not regretted it at all. Our customers are so wonderful and loyal and my staff is just the most hard-working, dedicated and creative bunch of women that I have ever had the pleasure of knowing.
I grew up loving creating. When I was a teenager, I dabbled in fabric painting, made my own jewelry and gave handmade gifts to my family for every occasion. I eventually discovered furniture refinishing and was told by my sister “you’ll paint anything without a pulse!”. She was right…I loved making things beautiful that others considered unappealing. I still love that aspect of home decorating, but my true love is paper, embellishments, ink, well…you get the idea. My favorite things to create are boxes and giftables. I’ve been in the paper crafting industry for 17 years and am constantly amazed at how talented and amazing our customers are here at Mainely Stampin’. Please don’t hesitate to bring in your projects, we’d love to see them, and we’re always here if you need inspiration.
I have been an avid crafter for many years. I started out making cards then progressed to scrapbooking. I absolutely fell in love with making my own scrapbooks out of chipboard. I can custom make a book for what ever occasion and any style. My style is mostly shabby chic which you can clearly see through out my projects. I am truly blessed to have joined the Mainely Stampin family. I love my job! Creating is my passion.
I have worked with the public for many years in different settings and have been told that I am a “people person!”. I am motivated by customers that are excited about their projects, its so fun to witness the creative process happen (that’s nearly every day here!). At Mainely Stampin all our customers are like friends and I really enjoy the atmosphere of the shop.
