About Me

Maggie Mata
Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator

My Story.   I’m a retired military hospital administrator that became a CARDiologist after 25 years of military service in the Air Force.  I love creating handmade greeting cards and truly enjoying designing custom pieces as a way to maintain my sanity.  When I craft & design I lose myself in the process and any sign of anxiety quickly dissipates.

My commitment to you.  I am committed to offering you outstanding customer service.  I have a deep passion for my craft and I will share it with you through my blog and technology via social media.

My Circle of Pals.  My Circle of Pals live all over the United States and abroad (military or DoD employees/dependents).  We are a non-pressure group that doesn’t rely on anyone ever having to throw a party, or sell anything to anyone!  My team is a hassle-free, party free safe zone.  However, if your goal is to earn extra income, I have a Master’s in Business Administration and I will freely show you how to become successful in your own Stampin’ Up! business.

My Stampin’ Up! story.  I became a hobby Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in 2011 to purchase supplies at a discount. Two years later I found myself with a team of friends who joined as hobby demos. I’m still in awe and my Circle of Pals are more than my friends…they are my blessing.  My mission is to teach others about paper-crafting and show them that making cards & other crafts is also therapy for the soul.

  1. Hello Maggie, thank you so much for your comment on my blog. I’m sorry that it’s taken me so long to reply, I’m still trying to learn how to navigate around this site. It really helps to know how others see my blog. I will definitely look into that.

  2. Love your blog! And thanks for serving. (I’m a military brat and live five minutes away from Randolph AFB in military city!)

  3. What a nice story Maggie..I am so happy that we met on line LOL and have become stamper friends! Cheers to future Shoebox Share days!
