Hi! My name is Connie Baccus and I own Connie’s Crafting Corner located in Brandon, FL.
I was born in McAllen, TX. Joined the United States Air Force in 1979. After Basic & Tech school I was stationed at Dyess Air Force Base in Abilene, TX. There I met my sweetie Gordon who was also stationed there. After serving we moved to Tyler, TX and are now in Florida. Florida is a very nice state but Texas will always be home. We have three sons who live fairly close.
I was introduced to Stampin’ UP! about 8-9 yrs ago. I love being a demonstrator. It gives me the chance to meet so many great people. I love to craft and this gives me the opportunity and excuse to do it. I teach paper crafting. Cards are a big thing but so are 3-D projects, Home Decor and much more. I am making new things all the time so I need to sell a few to keep my addiction going. I use almost 100% Stampin UP. For special orders I may have to use a little something from another outlet. I love using Stampin UP because I don’t have to stand in a store trying to match card stock, patterned paper, accessories with ink or whatever. That is a BIG time saver. I also sell Corner Crafts on the Go. Their for those that may not be able to make a class or live else where. So the “class” is mailed to you. Visit my store to see more.
I hold classes/events in my Corner. I can also will bring it to you. Maybe a few of your friends would enjoy an evening creating. I can also make it a specialty class. Need a bunch of birthday or holiday cards? Get a few people or group together and we’ll do it. I also enjoy making cards or having a group together to make them for the Tampa Ronald McDonald House. They are Stampin’ UP’s main charity. (See the last page of the Annual catalog to view their stamp set. RMH will receive a portion of the proceeds.) They go through A LOT of cards. So getting together to make a few is always rewarding.
Thank you for visiting my little Corner on the web!
