About Me

 

DSC_0023Hi, my name is Candice Anderson.  I am the mother of 4 boys ranging from the ages of 18 to 6 and  one and only girl age 2.  I’ve been happily married for almost 20 years.  I’ve been a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator for over 8 years now and I’m loving it.  It has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.

Me with Shelli at Convention 2007

Me with Shelli at the Stampin’ Up! Convention in Colorado, August 2007.  My baby was just 3 weeks old when we went.

I thought that I would tell you a little more about me.  I grew up in Hyrum, Utah and have lived here most of my life.  I have two sisters one older and one younger plus a younger brother.   I went to Snow College for 2 years and met my husband the summer between.  Believe it or not I pulled him over on Main street to ask him for a ride on his Motorcycle and the rest is history.

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Later Day Saints or LDS.  In other words yes I am a Mormon.  I’m very grateful to have the gospel in my life and know that there is a direction and purpose to my life.  I also love knowing that I can be with my family forever.  They are so important to me.  I would be happy to tell you more just send me an e-mail.

me-marc-hawaiiI am happily married to my wonderful husband Marc.  We will celebrate 19 years in May.  Wow I can’t believe it’s been that long already.  As I said earlier I am the mother of 4 boys.  Zack is my oldest he is 17.  I’m not sure I’m ready for him to graduate next year.  I’m not old enough.  However I love having a built in Babysitter.  I’m not sure he thinks is so great though.  Next is DJ he turns 16 this summer.  He loves to create things and I always get great ideas from him. He also plays the drums and I enjoy going to his Marching Band Competitions.  Third is my little Mikey.  He turns 13 in October and is really growing up.  He was the baby for so long that it’s hard to see him grow up.  He is so helpful around the house and such a good kid.  Last is my baby Xander.  He turns 6 in July and I can’t believe how fast he is growing up.  As I said before I finally had my baby girl in September and we are enjoying her so much.  I’m so grateful for my family and my kids they are such a joy to me.  I love that Stampin’ Up! allows me to generate income as well as be there for my family.

I joined Stampin’ Up! in November of 2005.  It was a very difficult time in my life when I was invited to a Stampin’ Up! 6×6 Calender Class.  I though they would make great Christmas presents and it would be a good time out.  I had been introduced to Stampin’ Up! before and bought a few things.  However I had never been shown what all I could do with the stamps.  After a wonderful afternoon of stamping I was hooked.  I couldn’t believe all the fun things you could do with stamps and all the accessories.  I wanted everything in the book.  I think it was a little bit of a surprise to my sister-in-law Mindy when I asked her about signing up.  My life has changed so much because of Stampin’ Up! and I’m so grateful for the decision I made to join that day.

incentive09_hawaii_190wMy husband has been so supportive of me.  He let me take over his desk and a whole room in the house just for all my stuff.  He usually takes the boys out for a “BOYS NIGHT OUT” on the nights I have club so I can have the house to myself.  I took him to convention with me in Denver because Xander was only 3 weeks old.  He had so much fun that he came again in Salt Lake the next year.  I’m sure he’d love to got again when he gets the chance.  He’s even made his own swaps.  I know I couldn’t do this without him.

I cherish the many friendships I have made since becoming a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator.  There are customers that I have become friends with as well as hostesses and down-line that I would have never know if I had never become a demonstrator.  One of my other favorite parts is all of the up-line and side-lines I have developed friendships with.  I can’t wait to go on another incentive trip with my new friends or Leadership, Convention or any of our other great Stampin’ events.  I don’t know any other place I can go and do what I love with friends, learn something new and earn money as well.  Plus you get fun swaps with lots of new ideas and you can’t go to a Stampin’ Up! event without coming home with some fun new hand crafted item. I couldn’t ask for a better job.  I’m always looking forward to earning our next trip.  I’ve missed the last few because of my little one (totally worth it), but I always keep my focus on the possibility.  If you would like to find out more about how you can join me please visit my Stampin’ Up! Website at www.candiceanderson.stampinup.net.  I would love to talk to you more.

zack-christmas-ornamentsWhen I went to college I got my degree in Art and then I started to go to school in education.  Life got in the way and I never finished but I still loved art and wanted to be able to teach.  I never imagined that I would find a career where I could work when I wanted to and get to create as well as teach people how to make wonderful projects.  I love that Stampin’ Up! makes it so easy and even my kids can do it.  I love being able to create fun new things.  I love to make scrapbook pages that my children and I love to look at together.  What a joy it is to send a hand made card to someone and to decorate my home with hand crafted items.  I love making unique gifts for my friends and family.

I want to thank you for letting me share a little bit about me with you.  I would love to help you discover your passion for creativity in any way that I can.  Please let me know how I can help you to become a better you.  Thanks again for sharing your time with me.
