Welcome to Lynnzcrafters! A website and blog maintained by me, Lynn Streifert, an Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator. I live in Glenville, NY and work full time (and part time too) in addition to Stampin’ Up. I was a crafter for many years before I signed up to be a demonstrator in September 2008.
I was a special education teacher for over 20 years with a wonderful preschool company called Capital District Beginnings, then I left for 11 years to head up the Children with Special Needs Department in Schenectady County. In 2017, I returned to my roots at Beginnings, in a new administrative role, was very blessed. Then, when I wasn’t even looking for a job, I was called and asked if I would consider applying for the Assistant Director position at IPRO, the agency that conducts all the Early Intervention monitoring reviews of providers and counties throughout New York. Um, I didn’t have to think long, and I was offered the position. I started at IPRO in February 2018, and absolutely love my new job! Believe me when I say, dream big and never give up! My work is taking me all over the state and I have had some awesome reunions with old friends. One thing I know for sure- I love that many of us can say connected through stamping. Sometimes my patience as a special education teacher can come in very handy when teaching complicated and challenging techniques, and I always try to think of new ways to teach my friends and customers. “Always a teacher” I guess is a great motto for me 🙂
I also love spending time with my family, I am so blessed to have a brother and sister (who happen to be twins) and they have blessed our family with their beautiful children. I am so lucky to live within a couple miles of them and enjoy all the fun “Aunt Lynnie” times that we get have… we love to go to the movies and make crafts and go out to eat. We have a few favorite restaurants, can you guess what ones?? After a short battle, my sweet mother recently died in 2016 from lung cancer and we greatly miss this wonderful lady. Life is short, and precious. Our family enjoys spending time together and going to our family camp on the St. Lawrence River (Cape Vincent, NY) in the summers.
