“Playing games, going on hikes, camping, the beach, visiting our local coffee shop for live entertainment and gelatos, and just hanging out together and goofing off…this is our family!”

“Nathaniel is our studious child, who loves science, history, and making things. His favorite pastimes are reading, playing with his circuit kit, building legos and conducting science experiments. Serious and responsible, Nathaniel makes a great big brother to his siblings. We can always count on Nathaniel to lend a hand and do a great job of helping out around the house. He often likes to surprise his mom by cleaning up his bedroom before she tells him to. Nathaniel wants to be a scientist when he grows up.”

“Isaiah is our fun and boisterous boy. He often has a mischievous twinkle in his eye and a playful grin on his face. Isaiah loves his cars, especially Speed Racer. Isaiah loves to play kick ball at school with his friends when he’s not busy with his school work. He likes math the best. In his spare time you will most likely find Isaiah playing some kind of sport or engrossed in his cars and trains or spending time outdoors. What does Isaiah want to be when he grows up? He doesn’t know yet. After all, he’s only seven, but some things on his list are a football player, a baseball player, a fireman, and a construction worker. It’s hard to decide!”

“Chloe is our girly girl who also loves to rough and tumble with her brothers. Chloe likes to sing, play memory, take care of her dolls and teddy bears, bake cookies with mommy, color in her coloring books, and watch Caillou. Chloe loves to play dress up and thinks it’s especially great when mommy lets her paint her nails. She misses her brothers a lot when they go to school and enjoys spending time with them when they come home. Chloe’s favorite thing in the whole world is little babies. She likes to hold them, play with them, give them kisses. She wants to be a mommy when she grows up.”

Do you have a passion for paper, texture, design, and creativity?!!

Brenda is quite talented when it comes to any type of paper crafting including scrapbooking, card making, gift and home décor items, fun party decorations, and everything In between.

I asked her about it….

“My clients love the quality and versatility of Stampin’ Up! products and I love sharing new ideas with my clients. There’s nothing quite like seeing the joy and satisfaction in someone’s eyes when they have just learned how to use a new product or have mastered a new technique. I love to teach people how to use their talents, abilities, and time to create a special hand-crafted item to either enjoy for themselves, pass down to their children, or to give away to bless someone else.”

In fact, she recently won the Artisan Award. This is a contest that is open to all US and Canadian demonstrators as a way for Stampin’ Up! to recognize demonstrators for their creative abilities.
