Judy Aguayo's "Summertime and the Stamping is Easy"

First....Meet Judy

Judy: Do you want to know that I was born in Texas, now
live in California, have five kids (grown-up, thank goodness), and seven
grandkids? And one great husband!

ggd: Yes, we want to know all that! And more!

Judy: After retiring about five years ago, I almost made a wrong turn into quilting but got pulled into rubber stamping by my sister Sherry. Have taken many classes - some by famous teachers, most not-so-famous. Got interested in Cyberstampers classes last year and now teach an occasional on-line class for them.


Judy: What would I do if I didn't stamp? Would have to go back to work or take a world cruise to keep from getting bored!

ggd: Quilting is OK, but we're glad you got into stamping. We vote a resounding "NO" on going back to work. A world cruise on the otherhand......!
