Welcome!  Thank you so much for taking the time to learn more about me, Jennifer Kostiuk, creator of Jenn's Pretty Crafty.

I am 42 years old and I live on an acreage just outside of the tiny town of Onoway, Alberta, Canada.  I actually grew up in this area, moved away 20 years ago when I started university, spent 10 years in Newfoundland, and now I'm back home....almost literally.

I am living with (we're past dating, but not married) the most supportive, loving man, Scott.

We don't have any children together, but we do have 2 furbabies that we are raising.  Jewel and Nala.  They are not blood sisters, but they certainly act the part (and usually in the most embarrassing of circumstances for Mom!)

How did I become a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator?

I had been a Stampin' Up! demonstrator about 10 years ago, and then dropped it as I was finding that I didn't have the time to dedicate to it and at that point, it was a bit more than a hobby - I had a few customers, but it was mainly to support my quarterly minimum as I had no interest in building a business at that time.

I then moved back to Alberta in 2017 and I immediately began my search for a local Stampin' Up! demonstrator as I was aching to craft again and be part of the Stampin' Up! community once again, but as a customer only.  I found Sheila Keith at a local farmers' market and joined her monthly stamp club where I met a wonderful group of ladies.  I was crafting again, falling in love with the new Stampin' Up! products that had been introduced since I had been away and I was enjoying learning new techniques and creating the beautiful projects that Sheila designed for us.  Life was good.

And then life threw me a curveball (I won't get into the specifics other than to say that I lost my job somewhat unexpectedly in the Fall of 2019 and I found myself floundering through the next few months struggling to figure out what I wanted to do with my life).  That's when Sheila and I had "The Chat".  We talked about me becoming a full-time Stampin' Up! demonstrator and 2 days later it was a done deal and here I am sharing with you my passion for creating in the hopes that you will feel even a tiny bit of the pride and sense of accomplishment that I feel each time I complete a project.

Why did I become a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator?

I want to connect with customers on a personal level, whether it be in-person or online and share with them beautiful projects that they can make themselves using the amazing supplies and tools that Stampin' Up! has to offer.  I want to inspire my family and friends of today and tomorrow to create and to craft and to love it!

I want to build a team of crafters that are not afraid to challenge themselves in either crafting alone or in creating a business or both.  I want people to be part of my team because their wish list is the annual catalogue and/or because they want to build something special for themselves and their families.

I want to change my world by being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator and continuously feed my soul through the creation and sharing of beautiful paper projects.
