My name is Shawn de Oliveira. I am a certified nerd who has always loved office supplies and stationery. Even as a child, I was often found browsing pens and paper while my mother was shopping. Who needed toys really?
My first stamp was a wood-mounted Mickey Mouse face that I stamped all over my books and any piece of paper that I claimed as my own. It was sort of a signature really.
I have always enjoyed artistic and creative things. I try it all and master none including graphic design, drawing, painting and photography. I like cooking, but mostly eating and entertaining friends.
I have been a Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrator since April 2015, but have re-explored my love for stamping for the past three years. My day job? You may have guessed I work in office supplies. I have 20 years of retail and customer service experience. The secret is to smile, have fun and start each day anew.
If you do not currently have a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, I’d love to earn your trust as a customer. If nothing else, I hope you enjoy my blog as I share creative explorations weekly. Hopefully you leave with some tips and inspiration to try something new.
