At 45, I picked up my first stamp and that was it: Now, I can throw the word ‘ephemera’ around with confidence, yet struggle with inappropriate feelings for chipboard. I'm not very polished and I'm still trying to get the hang of 'winning friends and influencing people', but for some crazy reason, this papercraft thing and I FIT! My kids are covered with glitter, my husband wonders how you injure yourself with Stickles, but we all agree on this: I'm a MUCH better person when I'm here!

A Rainbow Pony for Casey
But hey!!! SHE WANTED A RAINBOW PONY. SHE IS ALSO 3, WHICH MEANS SHE LIKES PINK AND SPARKLES. SO, YOU TELL ME WHAT TO DO, GENIUS!
Ooops....sorry....got a little defensive there.
I adore doing cards like this. I grew up a tomboy, but then grew into a girlie girl at 40. But I've always been a child at heart. Even my ex-husbands have been known to say that! In a sense. Instead of 'childlike', they actually used the word 'immature'. Meh...semantics.
I had been looking for a reason to order this stamp. I originally saw it here http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...&ppuser=137985
The fabulous Julie made it and I couldn't stop thinking about how much I loved it!
But ordering stamps is getting harder and harder. Not due to lack of money...I'm always broke! That NEVER stopped me! It's actually due to my husband being a lot more aggressive in analyzing our bank acct expenditures. Where it used to be easy to convince him that 'Memory Box' was an online photo storage cloud subscription and that Impression Obsession was a site for job seekers improving their interview skills, it's getting harder and harder to throw him off track.
But until he sits me down and says 'No more' (highly unlikely) or shuts off my credit cards (likely) I'll just keep on working on using a little more self-restraint and resisting impulse buying.
BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH....oh my.....hahahahaha...oh.....I actually got the whole sentence out before laughing my butt off....hahahahahahahhahaha

Hmm... I seem to remember an email that mentioned something about exercising some self control when it came to craft supplies. I wonder how many minutes that lasted? What?!! New stamps in my drawer? Nah, they've been there for ages. And NO, that's not an invoice for new Spellbinders. They just got the date wrong, they meant to say 2013, not 2014. Easy mistake to make, happens all the time.ReplyDelete
Sweetie, we are supposed to be going to Crafters Anonymous meetings, not Crafters Unanimous!
If I love the pink and the sparkles, does that make me three?
