About Areli

Hey there, welcome! Thank you so much for stopping by! My name is Areli Johnson, the face behind WithHisGifts.com

My husband and I live in Michigan. We have been married for 31 years. After raising our three children and only a couple of years of an empty nest, we are living a "life redirected" as we are raising our four grandsons. I love the boys with all my heart. Every day that He chooses me to care for them is truly a blessing. And, on those days that are tougher than others, I rely on the strength of our Lord and hold on to His promise that "We know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." ~Romans 8:28

With that many boys (ages 9, 7, 7, and 6 - yes, twins!), it's pretty obvious that my house is never lacking of things that make loud noises or covered in dirt. Which is why I take refuge in my crafting, my girly place. I love learning new crafting and art techniques. And, I absolutely LOVE everything vintage/shabby chic and can't resist the urge to distress paper.

I have been crafting since I was old enough to hold a crayon in my hand. It's true! Even as a little girl I was using God's gift to transform paper into little works of art! Well, at least I (and my mom) thought they were works of art!

I became a Stampin' Up! demonstrator as a way to share my passion for paper crafting with others and it has been one of the best decisions I ever made. Being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is so rewarding. Not only do I get to be creative every day, I also get to be a creative coach, offering fresh project ideas and encouragement to my customers and friends.

For me, inspiring someone to create that perfect project for that special person in their life is the best feeling ever. After all, its more than just stamps and ink, it’s about sharing a part of yourself with the people you love.

I'm so glad you stopped by. It is such a blessing to be able to share my love of stamping with you and to inspire you to transform paper into little works of art.

With His Gifts,
