Shirley Madsen

Congrats on your Stampin Up achievement. If my memory serves me right, I placed an order through you probably ten years or so ago. Since I live in Pleasant Hill, CA, just a hop, skip and a jump from your back yard, you personally delivered a catalog and my order to me. I drifted away from Stampin Up because I was busy raising two kids, then became a hobby demonstrator. I found your blog and realized it was yours when I read ‘About Me’ a few years ago and have been following it ever since. I love your inspiring artwork. Even though Stampin Up aficionados use the same products, they come up with so many creative projects. Yours are top of the line - very professional and unique.

Carla Kaiser

I have been following you for about 3 months. I love your cards!


Happy anniversary!!!

Happy Stampin'Up anniversary. So you are celebrating 23 years and it's Stampin'Ups 30th anniversary. You were there in their early years. I bet you could tell us some stories. Can you imagine how many stamp sets you would own, if you never got rid of the retired sets. That would be a lot of rubber! lol I have been following your blog for about the last 3 years or so. I just came across one of your U-tube videos one day and started following your channel and blog. Thanks for all the great inspiration you give us everyday in our in-boxes.

Hi Patty! I started watching your videos a year ago. You introduced me to water coloring. I've been a customer since January I think. Before I knew you I had purchased your million dollar sellers bundle. It was exciting when I realized it was your design!

HAPPY Stampaversary Patty, wishing you many, many more, you are an inspiration. I can't claim to have followed you for many years like so many , actually it's only been a little over a year but that's close to the same time length that I've even known that Stampin' Up existed. I found you and started following you shortly after I became familiar with Stampin' Up and I keep coming back. Thanks for all you share and all you give.

Sue Olive

I was a stamp collector for many years and never made a single card. During the last ten years I finally joined a local club that meets once a month. Your name was brought up as a good person to watch for ideas and tips, so I have been following you off and on for the last ten years. I don't make a lot of comments because I simply don't have the time. I love the things that you share and congratulate you for your years with Stampin' Up.

Glenda J

Congratulations Patty!!! I've only been following you for about one year and want to thank you for all that you share on your blog and in your videos. You are so creative and generous with your ideas. You still seem excited about Stampin Up and show us how to use the products they (you) sell! Thanks for all you share. I really look forward to seeing your blog every day!!! I live in AZ
