Sparkle Creation Rubber StampsStore Owner
Maple Valley, WA
My name is Sparkle, and yes it's my real name. I was born and raised in Portland, Oregon. I graduated from Oregon State University in 2004 and soon after moved to Denver, Colorado. In 2008, I moved back to the Pacific Northwest and am now happily living in Maple Valley, Washington with my wonderful and supportive husband, Brent.
I love to craft, make cards, scrapbook, make notebooks and journals, paint, rubber stamping, and just about anything else along those lines. I have been crafting for the last 12 years and I am so happy to have opened my own stamp company, Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps.
