My name is Anne Brown and I am The Stamp Maven. I have been a Stampin' Up!® Demonstrator since 2002 and I love what I do.
I was an elementary school teacher when we lived in California, but my journey with Stampin' Up! didn't start until after we moved to Texas in 1998.
The daughter of a church friend of mine invited me to come to a Stampin' Up! “workshop” in her home. I had no clue what this was but I thought it would be a fun night out so I went. I had so much fun that I decided to also “have a workshop”. I only had a few people attend but the list of things I wanted was so long, the workshop demonstrator invited me to become a demonstrator to get a discount on everything. I did! Let me tell you I had NO idea that step would make such a difference in my life!
I became a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator because I wanted to get a discount but, in a very short time I discovered a business that has become a way of life! I can create handmade cards and gifts to show someone special that I care and I love that part of it. But even better is when I can share my love of stamping with others and teach them how to do it, too! Many have joined my team, Girls, INK, and these relationships have turned into lifelong friends.
My husband Dave, affectionately named The Stamp Slave by my customers, is my business partner. We are able to make additional income, go on fabulous all-expense paid trips to fabulous places like Fiji, the Caribbean, Alaska, the Greek Isles and more. AND we have the privilege of helping others meet their personal goals, whatever they might be. We also have the freedom to spend quality time with all of our grandcherubs!
I love what I do and would love to share it with you!
Anne Brown, The Stampmaven
