STAMPtember Five on Friday with Jennifer Mcguire

Welcome to day #2 our Simon Says STAMPtember festivities!

We thought this was the perfect time to feature one of our all time favorite stampers - Jennifer Mcguire! Coincidentally, she also lives in Ohio. I am honored and blessed to call Jennifer a friend. She is a gem of a person who is talented beyond words.



Most stampers already know the lowdown on Jennifer. I met Jennifer through Hero Arts as she is an artist and education director for USA based Hero Arts Rubber Stamp Company. However, she is so much more than that! If you want her professional bio, check it out HERE - it will blow you away. Her Blog is always fresh, fun, full of great information and it is HERE.

Getting to know Jennifer through the years has truly been getting to love her. She and I each have a son (mine is 4 and hers is 5). I have 1 daughter, Jennifer has 2. We are both blessed to be loving what we do -both in the home as moms and out of the home as stampers.

Want to fall in love with her too? I'll spill some scoop on her only if you promise to not tell her that you heard it from me! I thought I'd share these fun facts - more reasons why I love this girl!

When she runs errands she works really hard to find something to compliment others about - whether it's the fancy manicure on the lady checking her out at the grocery or the sweater on the lady working at the mall - she actively works to be kind and make them smile. It sets a great example for her son too.

Her other dream job is a high school calculus teacher. Can you believe that she's a math geek who majored in Mechanical Engineering. She worked 5 years engineering, and then started scrapbooking to lift her spirits. Now she is here to stay!

The photo above is her at NASA! She did a project for NASA when she was in college at the University of Kentucky. Check out the purple nails ;) The photo is of her in the vomit comet.

UNLIKE most of us, Jennifer never ever stamps at night.

Can you believe that years ago she said "I don't understand why anyone would buy stamps. You could just use clipart or stickers - what a waste of money!" In a few months she owned quite a few stamps and in a few years was happily drowning in them. Now she says: "Stamps are the best crafting tool money can buy!"



Learn new tricks and techniques! For just $19 you can take Jennifer's Inspiration Showcase Online Class!

Although Jennifer strongly encourages using supplies that you already own, joining her class will get you a 15% Student discount to Simon for any other class supplies you might want too!

We hope that you are enjoying our STAMPtember celebration! Hopefully getting to know more about people in the biz is as fun for you as it is for us! We hope you find the video inspiring and educational.

STAY TUNED! Tomorrow we have a free instructional video by Jennifer created to inspire and educate :)

In addition: We are continuing the STAMPtember celebration with a Special Sale! So far, over 1,000 items are in our STAMPtember SALE category HERE. Stay tuned for more specials every single day. Every order placed during STAMPtember receives a free gift!

What time of day do you most like to stamp? Comment here to win this beautiful HERO Arts Rubber stamp set - not sold in any stores! It is chocked full of new Studio Calico images. The winner will be announced on Tuesday, September 6th!



In Stamping Love,
Heidi

  8. Fantastic article about Jennifer! She is one person I would love to meet. My favorite time to stamp is as soon as I get up in the morning. For whatever reason, my creative juices are going strong then, and thank goodness I'm retired and don't have to go to work, because sometimes I never get to my regular chores for the day until lunchtime!

  15. I don't have a favorite time. I tend to move from one project to another, so I might stamp while waiting for a watercolor wash to dry, or for paperclay to stiffen. Or, I might just get the urge to stamp!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I love to craft LATE at night. It's so peaceful!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I admit, I love to stamp late at night, when my house is totally quiert, because everyone else isasleep or very early in the morning, just after they all left the house here, cause then it gives me peace and quiert to drown in all my stuff here, which I so love ha ha ha.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

  51. What a great article! I am a huge fan of Jennifer's...and she was gracious enough to send me some free stamps once when I mentioned on her blog that I had just bought my first Hero Arts stamp. I was so touched that she'd do that!

    Stamping for me can happen anytime I have the time...but I especially love it when my sons are already in bed and I can concentrate at 10 pm! :)

    ReplyDelete
  91. In the afternoon or at night. If I'm really into it, I can start in the morning and continue right up to midnight or one am. My latest craze is OSW. I'll do three sets simultaneously like an assembly line and can have 48 cards done in less than a day. Then I'm so jazzed at my progress that I start another three sets and voila, in a day and a half, I've made 96 cards.

    ReplyDelete
  92. I like to stamp when I am relaxed, and that's when all the kids have gone to school, or to bed LOL

    ReplyDelete
  93. My favorite time to stamp is when I know I will have a block of time free and not be interrupted or feel I "should" be doing something (like making meals!) -- this usually is in the evenings or weekends. I enjoyed your little tidbits from Jennifer's past. I love her videos and her generous spirit always comes across in her blog and videos.

    ReplyDelete
  94. I am really loving this STAMPtember posts!! For me, it's not when I love to stamp - it's when I have the time. Between 3 kids, a job and all the blog post I need to catch up on :-) I'm happy when ever I have the time.

  164. I love to stamp in the day time but end up doing most of it at night. I had the great pleasure of meeting Jen in person for the first time this year. We met online years ago (before Colin) and became steadfast friends. She is kind and loving and REAL. I love her to pieces and she is one of my biggest source of inspirations.

  165. We are retired, so I can stamp whenever the "mood" strikes, like getting new stamps or seeing something on a blog that inspires me. I'm looking forward to Jennifer's class. Hope your birthday started this month off right. Many happy returns of the day.
