Artistic Avenger

The Artistic Avenger is…

ME – Carrie Gaskin! I am a mom of 2 and wife of 1. I’m born and raised in British Columbia, Canada and feel so proud to live in this most beautiful part of the world. I have been a Stampin’ Up!(r) Demonstrator since March 2005 and have fallen deeply in love with stamping and scrapbooking. I so enjoy sharing my love of the creative arts. 

Why am I blogging? Well, good question. I’m blogging to share, be inspired and meet like-minded individuals. Oh, and to get a break from those kids and that husband.

Look around you. You’ll see so many things around you that you find beautiful and inspiring. Yet, among those pieces of beauty are rare hidden jewels that need to be embellished and removed from the world of bland. This is where I hope to inspire. Look at something that may be nothing right now – it could be beautiful.

  16. I just finished viewing your samples and one is more beautiful than the one before. You are so creative! Too bad you live across the country as I would love to come to one of your workshops just to breathe in some of your inspiration. Being a demonstrator only one year, I am far behind your creative endeavors. I have been working as a hobby demonstrator so have taken all my earnings to gather all the neat products Stampin’ Up offers. I almost have the entire line of paper, pads and markers. Just want to over spend each order,it is hard to refrain. I especially love their ribbon and punches. What to purchase next is always a quandry. The best to you! Linda from PA

Thanks for sharing of what you love to do, as you do it well!

  18. Hi Carrie — just wanted to say that I LOVE your work! I check your blog about every other day to see what you have designed and I’m always just so impressed! I saw you at convention and wished that I had stopped you and introduced myself — next year I will do that. Thanks for being such an inspiration — maybe soon I’ll have a blog, too!
