Hi there crafty Kiwi!
Crafting, cats and travel—I love all three.
I’m Heather Stewart, an Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator who lives in Pt. Chevalier, New Zealand. I enjoy teaching two evening classes per month. I share my home with two absolutely beautiful Birman cats called Sherwood and Lincoln. They love to greet my class attendees personally and often join in on the crafting fun! I have been a demonstrator for 10 years and have reached the title of Silver. I recently left full-time teaching (Primary) and currently enjoy being a relief teacher at three Auckland Primary schools.
From an early age, I have loved paper and stationery products. I think that was part of the draw of my becoming a Primary School teacher; so that I could use the creative side of my brain. My stamping journey began when a friend asked me if I knew anyone teaching card making. I had a friend who was going to classes so the two of us joined. I immediately fell in love with the Stampin’ Up! stamp designs, colour coordination and high quality supplies that produced such beautiful results. I knew I would be buying lots of this product so I became a demonstrator to get my product at a discount. I didn’t consider myself skilled enough to teach paper crafting to others, but gave it a go and found that I enjoyed sharing my passion and loved the wonderful feedback I was getting. I began holding regular monthly classes at my home in Point Chevalier. Many of my customers have been coming to classes for as long as I have been a demonstrator and are now great friends .
You will notice from my profile picture that I am a burn survivor. I was involved in an incinerator explosion at a neighbour’s house when I was 9 years old. My burns predominantly affected by hands and face. The ends of my fingers had to be amputated and some of the joints are fused. You may think that would pose a difficulty for crafting, but I’m here to tell you that has never been an issue for me.
I hope you will consider attending a class or two. If you have any paper crafting or Stampin’ Up! questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Happy stamping! Heather
