Hello everyone! I'm Anastasia aka Stampin' Blondie! I have been a Stampin' Up Demonstrator since November of 2010 after attending a Stampin' Up party and falling in love with the products. I loved how all of the items coordinated with each other (paper, inks, embellishments) and how it was a one stop shop for everything I needed! Since becoming a Demonstrator in 2010, my life has been a huge whirlwind of excitement and fun!
Many ask me why my business name is Stampin' Blondie. Growing up my dad, whom I called Poppy, hence the presence of poppy flowers on my page and logo, would call me Blondie and was my very first customer to purchase a card from me. I framed the first dollar he gave me, my mom still has the receipt from the sale on the fridge in her house, and she even still has that card he purchased for her. It all holds a special place in our hearts as he passed away in December 2010, only a month after I became a Demonstrator. When it was time to think of a name for my business, Stampin' Blondie was right at the top of my list!
I am married to my wonderful husband, Andrew, and we have two adorable but crazy miniature dachshunds named Harvey and Buddy. In June of 2012 my husband and I moved to Aviano Air Base, Italy and lived there for four years. We recently moved back to the States and now live in Tucson, Arizona where we both currently work at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base.
He is an Aircraft Maintenance Officer in the United States Air Force and his career has taken us all over the world! Living in Italy was so special and amazing and I would love to go back again some day!
Stampin' Up has allowed me the opportunity to make friends all over the world. While living in Italy I was able to attend many OnStage events in Europe and have made lifelong friends with Demonstrators living overseas. Learning from them and how their styles differ from ours was such a wonderful experience.
Now that we have returned to the States, Arizona has brought me together with some great stampers whom I get to meet monthly. They have adopted me as one of their own and I can't wait to see where Stampin' Up takes me in the future!
