Meet Me

Hello there!

Thank you for stopping by my little part of the inter-web universe.

May I introduce myself to you?

I am a simple person living life the best I can in a teeny tiny town in the middle of nowhere in extreme Southern Illinois.  I love living in a town where everyone is related to everyone else but us.  We were transplanted here in late 2002.  My children have grown up here and this is definitely home.  I would love to travel the world.. but I will always come back to here!

So, my name is Joanne Cantrell.  I am also know as Wendell’s wife and Dell’s mom, Wesley’s mom and Katelynne’s mom.  Wendell and I met in 1997 and were married shortly thereafter.  Dell is our oldest son.  He is in the Navy now.  We are a very military family.  Wendell is a retired Marine and my father is retired Navy.  We have several other family members that have served.  Wesley is my monkey in the middle.  He will be graduating high school soon and move on to become an electrician.  Katelynne is the baby in the family.  She just started high school and is planning on becoming a trauma nurse in the Navy.

In addition to stampin’, I am the church secretary at our local church.  I also work for fun and stampin’ money at the local Yankee Candle store.  I am very involved in my kids’ life and our football team.

I have been a Stampin’ Up demonstrator on and off for a few years now – but steady since 2015.  I can’t express to you the joy that stampin’ gives me.  From the crowds at a Stampin’ Up event (OnStage) to the quietness of my messy craft room…  Stampin’ is as much a part of me as breathing!  My hope is that I can help you bring as much joy to your live as I have in mine through the simplicity of a card or paper-crafted gift.

I look forward to meeting you in person one day!
