**Jen del Muro Interview**

Hi, I’m Jen del Muro. Some of you may know me from SCS as genie1314, or from my stamping blog, i{heart}2stamp. I was first introduced to the JustRite line of products at CHA in February of this year. I was immediately intrigued by the fun and easy monogramming stamping products that they have. So, when Denise contacted me about working with and blogging about their products, it was really easy to leap at the opportunity.

Throughout the week, I will be showing you several projects. However, before I get started, I want to take just a minute to go over the creative process involved. I have seen several projects done with these monogramming stamps. Most of them are personal stationary, such as cards or notes, which is also what first came to mind for me. I knew that there was so much more that I could do with these products though. So, I sat down and brainstormed and came up with several ideas that will pertain to different aspects of life. Over the course of the next several days I will show you how I incorporated monogramming into a lot of things that I never thought I would. Denise warned me that it was addictive and now I am warning you too!

Where do you live? We currently reside in Saginaw, TX, which is a suburb of Fort Worth in North Texas.

Family? Tony and I have been married for 5 years this year. We have a beautiful and strong minded 2 year old daughter, Ellie. We also share our home with 2 dogs and a cat.

How long have you been stamping? Although I dabbled in stamping many moons ago, I have been "seriously" stamping for about 5 years.

What does your stamping room look like and will you show us a pic? I stamp in a spare room of our house. Tony would love to make it a media room, but he'll have to fight me for that right! LOL! This is what once started out as a plastic 3-drawer chest.

How long have you been blogging and what do you like most about blogging?
I have been blogging for about a year and a half. I like that there is such a wonderful community of stampers and bloggers out there and it is great to be a part of that community. It's a fun way to display my work and mix in some family pics, too.

When you aren't stamping or blogging what do you like to do for fun? I love just hanging out with my family. We enjoy the pool during the summer and indoor games during the cooler months.

Thanks for visiting and please be sure to give Jen some love by leaving her comments all week!
