About me

Location Nottingham, NH, United States
Introduction My name is Elsa Barthel and I live in the beautiful state of New Hamsphire. I have been married for almost 12 years to the most loving and patient man who puts up with all of my crazy crafting (and organizing) obsessions. I am blessed with 2 wonderful and very active girls ages 7 and 4 who are all but too aware of my paper crafting addiction. My passion for paper crafting started in November of 2010 when I attended a Stampin' Up! workshop that a friend of mine was having. I had never heard of Stampin' Up! before but as soon as I saw the beauty you could create with a few inks, stamps, and paper - I was hooked!! I joined the Stampin' Up! family in February 2011 and found that my love for paper crafting and inspiring others was just what I needed. Since joining Stampin' Up!, my passion has been cardmaking. Being able to make someone's day with a handmade card is what fuels me to keep creating. I find myself wanting more time in my daily schedule so that I can play in my craft room, but the reality of having two children and a part time job, doesn't always allow for that time. It makes for many late nights, but it's all worth it because it's what I love to do!
