I *heart* Hero Arts

Ashley planned a wonderful blog hop to thank Hero Arts for all they do.  I am late posting due to company arriving today, but I had to play anyway.

And instead of doing a thank you card for the hop, I decided to share a page that was in the recent CK.  It talks about how I love working for Hero Arts.

Dream Job
(c) Creating Keepsakes

I really don't just say I love working for Hero because my boss can see this.  Ha.  I really do love it.  The people are amazing, generous, understanding, supportive and FUN.  They have incredible values: family-run, green business and made in the USA (in house).  And my favorite thing is that they are supportive to other companies.  They like to see other stamp companies succeed, too.

I am honored to work for them.  The funny thing is, no one can really agree on how I started working for them.  Danny, who used to work there for years, says that he found me because a scrapbook magazine editor told him that they should get me to do samples for them.  Aaron (the CEO) says that he saw my work in a magazine and contacted me.  And I honestly have no idea.  (But I tend to believe my boss – ha.)  All I know is that one fall afternoon 7 years ago, I got a call from Jackie (the Founder) asking me to do projects for them.  And I was thrilled.

OK… enough boring stories.  (Kay's are so much better!) But I do want you to know that when you see me using lots of a company's product it is because I like the company.  That means a lot to me.  And Hero Arts is an industry leader in everything good. :)

    Very nice layout Jennifer. You can tell you love your job with Hero Arts it shows in your work. There is no store in my area that sells Hero Arts items so I shop the Hero Arts on-line store. It’s a very nice place to shop. If I say so myself they are quite generous, they always include so many gifts with my order, no store does that. TFS!!!

  19. Hi Jennifer, what a lovely LO. You are so inspiring & thank you for all that you do & share. x

    Dream job is right!! Loved hearing your story!!

  25. although I haven’t been sharing online as much lately due to time constraints, when I make something I always reach for my Hero Arts stamps. They are one of my ‘go to’ products and they never let me down. Feels double-y good to use something from a company whose business practices mirror my ideals. :)

  26. Yep, it’s a dream job for sure! :)

  27. Such a beautiful page! Not only for the style, but also the contents. It really reflects your love for your job :D

  28. So creative! I love your work!
