Born and raised in Connecticut, Joan moved to Ohio in 1999 with her husband Guy and their 6 children. They are all grown and married and have given them 14 sweet and wonderful grandkids. Joan always likes to keep myself busy and that’s where crafts came into play. Her mom was an avid embroiderer and so that is where she started. Joan like to try new things and so, just like many, she got caught up in teaching herself sewing, crocheting, cross stitch, tole painting and then eventually rubber stamping.
Back in 2012 after working for Stamp Your Art Out in Blue Ash for her mentor and good friend Connie Williams, she opened the store known as Simply Said Rubber Stamps. She closed the brick and mortar store in 2017 and took to the road for the rubber stamp conventions all over the US traveling with her hubby their travel trailer. Joan loves to see people we’ve met along the way and are always excited to meet up with new ones.
