My name is Sheri Whitfield. I live in Spring, Texas with my husband Michael, and a quartet of dogs: Ginger, Tippy, Jazz, and Brandy.
Handmade Birthday Card
I got into rubber stamping and paper crafting by accident. A friend had invited me to a “stamp party.” I thought they meant postage stamps and it would, without a doubt, be the most boring home party I’d ever been to! Turns out they meant rubber stamping, and as soon as I saw what you could do, I was hooked. I even became a demonstrator myself for a while. I think the reason I love it so much is that I’ve secretly never outgrown my love for coloring. Coloring books and crayons were always one of my favorite things as a kid.

Marketing is extremely important. If I don’t do it, no one else will! I don’t do the best job of marketing. It’s a continual learning process. No one is going to do the hard work of promoting my business for me, although The CraftStar does an awesome job of promoting and educating on behalf of their sellers. I try to learn more and more about the social media outlets that I feel are best for me and that I’m most comfortable with. Google + looks to be the trend of the future, so I’m trying to learn more about it and become more active and engaged there. I don’t think I’ve had any better success one place or another at this point.

Wire wrapped rings from Pinx & Lulas. I have several of her rings, and they are just so well done. The fact that she can custom make any size and color of wire is amazing. Her wire work is so great!
