Introducing June Switzer

It’s wonderful being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator.  It’s even more fun when you’ve had to leave and then get to come back and start all over with renewed enthusiasm!  That’s the experience that June Switzer has had, and she’s loving being a demonstrator the second time around.  What makes it even more fun is that this time she signed up as a demonstrator with her daughter as her upline.  It really is a great family business!

While June has been a demonstrator this time around for a few years, it’s just this year that her business has really been jump-started with workshops that have generated workshops, and June’s on a roll.  As we get into the holiday season, June’s favorite line of products will be getting a lot of play.  Of course that means it’s “bling.”  From Dazzling Diamonds to Basic Rhinestones, June’s sure to find an excuse to “dazzle” us all with her Christmas designs.  And she certainly dazzles all around her as her face sparkles whenever she’s been using the Stampin’ Up! glitter!

June prefers to stamp in peace and quiet with no distractions.  She’s accomplished this by constructing her own stamping space with an entire extra bedroom devoted to her paper crafting hobby and business. At the moment, though, she has a bit of company in her stamping room as her daughter/upline is staying with her as she searches for a new job near where June lives.  It’s good for both of them as they are able to stamp in their spare time to recharge their batteries and share ideas with each other.  So, a little distraction perhaps; but a good one!

This year has been a hard one for June as her husband was quite ill in the Spring.  But, once her husband was on his way to recovery, June found that her online groups helped her get back on track to enjoying her stamping.  She discovered a great set of challenges on one of the blogs that she frequents, and that really helped her get going again after her time off to care for her husband.  One particular challenge that she recalls was one that required the use of some of Stampin’ Up!’s Brights collection of colors.  For June – a dyed in the wool user of mellow and subtle colors – this was a real honest-to-goodness challenge to get out of her comfort zone.  She met the challenge and now she’s a big fan of all of Stampin’ Up!’s new bright colors.

We’re thrilled to have the new “bright” June as one of our princesses on this fall’s Royal Blog Tour!
