Meet Jackie Kelley

We thought you would like to meet our Stampin Champion, Jackie Kelley, up close and personal. I was quite surprised to read some of her interview answers. So I had to go do some detective work to see for myself. Not only did she play in the contest consistently every week for the last 4 weeks but would you believe that Jackie has an SCS gallery with 43 pictures and 40 of them are her JustRite Stampin Champion entries? Yep, and she started her blog because of the contest as well. Pretty cool. So take a minute to drop in and visit Jackie's blog, Flamingo Crafts, and give her some love!

Where do you live. - Gulf Breeze, Florida (It's normally where the big Hurricane Bull's-eye is this time of year!)
  • Tell us about your family. - I have a wonderful husband, Sean, and "son" Chopper the Boston Terrier.
  • How long have you been a stamper? Hmmm, that's a tough one. I think I "officially" became a stamper in 2004. :)
  • Where do you stamp at? (studio, spare bedroom, basement, kitchen table, etc) I have a room in our home that was supposed to be the "office", but is honestly my stamping/crafting room with only about 3 feet allocated to the computer. Funny how I took it over as MY room! Now if I could only figure out a way to get the computer out, then it would be mine, all MINE! BUT I'm not limited, I'll stamp just about anywhere/anytime when there are friends around!
  • What is your favorite "must have" stamping tool? My must have tool is The JustRite Stamper of course! And some kind of cleaning wipe, or scrub (depending on the type of stamp I'm using). But as for my favorite? It changes, I go thru phases . . . right now it's probably my 2 inch scallop punch to coordinate with my JustRite Monogram stamper - that is the only reason I bought the punch after all! :)
  • How long have you been blogging? About a month! I started about a week after the contest started - see you inspired me in many ways! :)
  • Keep us in mind....."When it needs to be JustRite".

    Congrats Jackie! It's nice to have a face to a stamper.

    Jackie said...

    OMG my head is like the entire screen size! I apologize to all who have been traumatized by my face! :)

    In all seriousness, this is the first time my work and I have been recognized and appreciated. It is a huge honor. PLUS it shows my husband that there are tremendous rewards (emotional and tangible) to this hobby/obsession.

    I can't say thank you enough. Thank you to all who have said kind words, sent kind thoughts, inspired, motivated and encouraged me. Thank you all!

    U R Beautiful! So Stop it!!
    And if you moved that computer out of your craft room, you would have to run to another room to keep up with all of the online excitment.
