LIFE IN A STAMPING GROUP

by Kimberly D.

My eyes are fuzzy,
My back is sore.
I'm off to bed,
To dream of stamping some more!

As I lay there I will try,
To not think too much.
Of all the creations,
Designs and such.

I will rush home from work,
In the afternoon.
No, wait -- there's a stop,
Again to the craft store so soon.

Coupon in hand,
And money in my purse.
I hope that my items will all be there,
If out of stock? I won't curse.

I will seek and find,
Up and down the isles.
I may be there a minute,
Or it just may take a while.

I then will rush home,
And bust out my stuff.
Lock myself in the office,
Mounds of cards not enough.

Too many ideas and not enough time,
To stamp, emboss, cut and glue.
Into the wee hours I will go,
And then will get on line to talk to you.

I hope everyone has a wonderful day,
And make some pretty things to show.
I love to see everyone's work,
And I have so much still left to know.

So thank you Floridastampers for opening your door,
To allow me into your family's to see.
I really enjoy this and hope that it shows,
And in return, you all have a friend in me.

Warm fuzzies and Rubber huggies,
Kimmie / Tampa

RUBBER WONDERLAND#2

Sung to the tune of Winter Wonderland...

Brayers roll....are you listening.
On the card....ink is glistening.
A beautiful sight...were happy tonight,
Stamping in a winter wonderland.

In the kitchen we can stamp a snowman.
Then add color to his carrot nose.
You'll say: Are you finished?
I'll say: No ma'am,
I need to add some glitter to make snow.
When we stamp...ain't it thrilling.
Even when...the powder's spilling.
We'll create and we'll play....the art stampers way.

Stamping in a winter wonderland.

10 REASONS TO BUY RUBBER STAMPS

MORE REASONS TO BUY STAMPS

HOW ADDICTED ARE YOU?

How Addicted Am I?
I have sanded the wood on a stamp because it was dirty.
I have painted my stamps with fingernail polish to prevent them getting ink on them.
I have a room in my house devoted to rubber stamping.
I buy stamps because they're pretty, even if I can't think of a thing I'll do with it
at the time of the purchase.
I have been to at least one stamp convention.
I have traveled across state lines to attend a stamp convention.
I have spent over $100 at a stamp store or convention on one day.
I have spent over $400 at a stamp store or convention on one day.
I have lied to hide the fact that I've spent money on stamps (this includes writing the name
of the local grocery store in the check register when the check was for stamp purchases).
Most of my friends are stampers.
I have called in sick to work so that I could go stamp shopping with a friend.
I regularly stay up to finish a project knowing that it means I'll only get 5 hours sleep
before I have to get up.
I buy stamp accessories because my friends tell me about them, even if I can't remember
what I'm supposed to do with them at the time of the purchase.
The employees of my closest stamp store know me by name.
I find it hard to sleep because I am thinking about my current project.
I get up in the middle of the night to work on projects.
I have at least 3 ink pads.
I have at least 15 stamps.

If you have answered yes to at least five of these questions then you are
completely addicted and the only cure is to buy more rubber.........

RUBBER STAMP

Whimsically penned by Paul Johnson

Dashing to the mall,
In a beat up Chevrolet!

Like household chores, I fear.

To purchase Christmas cheer!!

So now, with stamps in hand,
My mission's plain to see
From "Rubber Stamp Command"

"May all your days be bright,
Your New Year full of worth!.
And may your blessed Christmas night
Be filled with peace on Earth!!"

STAMPERS RULES OF ACQUISITION

AUNT EDNA

submitted by Kimberly D.

As a new bride, Aunt Edna moved into the small home on her husband's ranch
near Snowflake. She put a shoe box on a shelf in her closet and asked her husband
never to touch it. For fifty years Uncle Jack left the box alone, until Aunt Edna
was old and dying. One day when he was putting their affairs in order, he found
the box again and thought it might hold something important. Opening it, he found
two handmade cards and $82,500 in cash. He took the box to her and asked about
the contents. "My mother gave me that box the day we married," she explained. "She
told me to make a handmade card to help ease my frustrations every time I got mad
at you." Uncle Jack was very touched that in 50 years she'd only been mad at him twice.
"What's the $82,500 for?" he asked.
"Oh, that's the money I made selling the cards."
