My name is Krissi Hannahs and I am an Independent Stampin' Up! ® Demonstrator in the United States. I live in the panhandle area of Florida in a town named Crestview, about 50 miles from Pensacola. We have beautiful clear water and wonderful white sand beaches here.
I am a retired Air Force service member who served for 20 years and 21 days and retired in January of 2018. My husband Mike is also retired Air Force who also served 20 years and 27 days and he retired in February 2014. We have two children together, Lucas Warren and Kennedi Marie. He still works outside the home, but I am now a stay at home mommy and full time crafter.
The Air Force was so wonderful to me and my family, allowing us to meet in Florida, spend 5 years in Spokane, Washington where we had Lucas, and then 3 years together as a family in the United Kingdom. Miss Kennedi joined our family in 2019 after retirement and was one big surprise for sure. The travels and places we saw while serving were great, and we will never forget them! Along with lifelong friends we met along the way.
When I am not being a mom or crafting, I enjoy reading a good book, going to the beach, hanging out in our backyard pool with my boy, and watching TV. Florida provides us with plenty of sunshine so I don't spend much time indoors during the spring and summer months, but I can read a book by the pool all day long! :) So if you have some book suggestions, I would love to hear them! Some of my favorite authors are Nicholas Sparks, Nora Roberts, and Jodi Picoult. My family is also huge Ohio State Buckeyes football fans, so pretty much every Saturday from August to November we will be watching our favorite team play! Go Bucks!
Stampin' Up! provides me a unique opportunity to share what I love with others, and to help them learn to be creative and send handmade cards to their friends and loved ones! I can honestly say I have not bought a store bought card in over 14 years!!! I make and send them all! I love to share my creativity with others!
