Hi! My name is Ruth Murphy and I live in Northern Virgina with my husband, daughter and dog. I love cooking, gardening, rubber stamping and 3-d paper crafting, and I want to share it all with others. I became a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator in July 2001 because I loved stamping and wanted to get the demonstrator discount. I never intended to do a workshop but had planned to simply stamp with family and friends who also enjoyed stamping. Well, one of my co-workers (at my 'real job') wanted to have my first workshop. And after she wouldn't take no for an answer, I reluctantly did a workshop for her and then others booked shows at her workshop. What could I do? I did those workshops and have never looked back. I can trace my business back to that first workshop. I'm so glad she 'made' me do that workshop. Since then, I have enjoyed several Stampin' Up! cruises, was honored to have earned a spot as a top demo and attend Founder's Circle and I have enjoyed countless other perks along the way. By far the best perk of all are the many friends that I have met around the world. I could not have accomplished any of these things without the wonderful customers that I have. It's hard to believe I have a 'job' that pays me for having fun and provides me with a creative outlet. Who knew that I could be creative! I enjoy sharing my love of stamping and Stampin' Up! with everyone that will listen to me.
