Ten years ago I was looking at retiring from teaching and knowing that I was going to need something to fill my time. I taught in a school district 30 miles away from my home, and my “peeps” were going to be there and I wasn’t. We had lived in our hometown for 30 years and yes, I knew people in our community but chatting and connecting deeper are two different things. I was going to need something to help me build those deeper connections so I had “peeps” after retiring in my daily life AWAY from school. Luckily I had a friend invite me to her card making group and I experienced Stampin’ Up! for my first time. I was hooked. (At this point, try to imagine my Pool Boy hubby listening to me go on about how much I loved it, and he’s thinking “oh, great! Another crafting addiction!’) Within a few months I realized by purchasing that Starter Kit I could gather ALL my stuff with a discount! (Again, imagine Pool Boy trying to NOT roll his eyes as I told him I only needed to be in for 6 months – that’s it!!!!????) LOL!!!
In February, I will celebrate my 10th anniversary with Stampin’ Up and without a doubt I will tell you that it was truly one of the best things I did. And Pool Boy will agree WITHOUT rolling his eyes – I think. The deep friendships I’ve created through my stamping groups AND within the Stampin’ Up! community bring me so much joy and I am truly blessed on this papercrafting journey. My days are filled with crafting, connecting with others, and giving me a purpose that I needed during retirement. I use my paper crafting talents to share with and serve others and it was what I NEEDED to embrace retirement.
