How scary is it that I know the exact date I started stamping! September 7, 2002! DS #1 was away at college -4 hrs. from home, DS #2 had just started his freshman yr of college - 16 hrs. from home, and DH was on a 10 day business trip to Arizona and Mexico. I was working from home that week and I was over come by a lonesome feeling! I had previously tried to stopped by a LSS in our town - curious to learn about stamping but it seemed they were never opened. I called one morning and left a message, inquiring about classes and the owner called me right back inviting me to a class that evening! This was the day my addiction began!

About 7 years ago I bought a scrapbook kit as a Christmas gift for my daughter in law. My best friend was with me, and she bought one for her daughter. Long story short, neither of them ever got the gift...we ended up with them. And that was the beginning of my scrapbooking addiction.

My stamping addiction is WAY worse! It was a spin off from my scrapbooking. Although I don't scrapbook much anymore, I stamp daily!

i got started in this hobby from my mom about 2 years ago. she used to work for provo craft and she got hooked big time. she started collecting crafty things and found a stampin up demo that she became friends with. she started having card parties and i had to go, being the dutiful daughter. pretty soon, i was getting hooked. then some girls from work put together a monthly stamp club. the rest is history!!

i've been obsessed ever since!

I started stamping in Jan. 2006. We had moved to a new city and I didn't know anyone, but I'd started lurking on the PCMB. I kept reading about Stampin' Up and saw beautiful cards so I looked for a demo in my area, found one, called her. I was her first customer and went to an open house at her home and I was hooked.
