About me

Occupation Independent StaminUp! Demonstrator
Location Port Orchard, WA, United States
Introduction I'm Mary Ann and I'm a former cake decorating instructor of many years, but since you can "eat your mistakes" which isn't good for the hips, I switched to papercrafting. I belong to a high energy group of Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrators and I'm having the time of my life. I've learned so much in a short time and will gladly show you how easy it is to create beautiful masterpieces without any effort. I was born and raised in Del Rio, Texas then migrated far away to the beautiful state of Washington. I met a wonderful man, married him in a little white church on June 9, 1961. I was so spoiled for 52 years until sadly my white knight had a heart attack and passed away in his sleep on June 13, 2013.. All those years he put up with my wonderful, crazy hobbies including papercrafting and never said a word when the UPS truck pulled up with Stampin' UP! deliveries. We have two daughters, one son-in-law, three terrific grandchildren and one granddaughter in-law. On March 8th of this year we were blessed with a beautiful little great granddaughter. A future papercrafter!
Interests Papercrafting, cake decorating, tap dancing
Favorite Movies I'm not a movie watcher but when I do I love all the Disney movies.
Favorite Music Easy listening quiet background music.
Favorite Books My favorite authors are Joanne Fluke and Kate Collins for light murder mysteries and Lisa Jackson and Catherine Coulter for heavier murder mysteries. When I'm in the mood for love stories I pick Debbie Macomber who is our local author and so loved all over the nation.
