Introducing Elaine Wright

Elaine Wright
Elaine Wright's Stampin' Up! story begins in Tennessee.  A friend of Elaine's who was a Stampin' Up! demonstrator moved there from California, and asked Elaine to join her stamping club.  Elaine's friend stopped selling SU!, and Elaine wanted to keep stamping so she found another demonstrator's club to join.  Then that demonstrator moved, and Elaine finally saw the light and signed up to become a demonstrator herself, and started her own club!

One of Elaine's favorite things to do is try a new technique!  You name it, she has probably tried it.  With all that experimentation, Elaine has become a master at covering up mistakes.  You won't be able to find her boo-boos, because she can work them into her layout to make it look like she meant to do that!

Elaine gets much of her inspiration from the great outdoors. Elaine says “I find inspiration around me, in my garden and orchard, in the woods behind my house and in my grandchildren's imaginations.  I never can tell what will inspire my next project! “

If nature fails to motivate Elaine to create, all she has to do is look online in the Stampin' Up! demonstrator forums, or on other demonstrators' blogs, and she will inevitably find something she just has to make!

Elaine’s stamping secret is probably one that we all secretly keep. She has an organization problem. “My stamp room is a wreck!  Not just a mess, a total wreck.  I spend more time trying to find things than I do actually creating.  It's sad.  I think about getting organized but I seem to have a problem with brain freeze when I try.  I remind myself of the people on Hoarders except there isn't a bunch of garbage in there and the other rooms in my house are reasonably clean and neat.  I need to hire an organizer!  My grandson actually told me when he followed me into my stamp room that I could be on America's Messiest Homes if my whole house looked like that.  I didn't know there was such a show but if there is, he is probably right!”

Don’t worry Elaine, your secret is safe with us…and from the looks of your projects, no one will mind the mess! Make sure you take a minute to stop by Elaine’s castle and see what amazing talent she has to share with us!

Elaine makes me laugh all the time! One of the funniest stories I've ever heard was her rendition of the drunken pig story. Elaine has been with us from the beginning, when there were only a handful of us working on the tour. She's a vet now, and we love having her around.
