My life as a stamper......here's
a quick synopsis for the convention bio: I started stamping
about 3 years ago after the rather serendipitous discovery
of RSM. I was in a bookstore looking for a magazine
to keep me company on a long business trip...RSM looked
interesting...little did I know what I was getting myself
into. I was afraid to actually DO any stamping for some
time but had great fun collecting supplies and knowledge.
I finally realized that I would never stamp unless I
actually owed someone a card, so I put an ad in RSM
to swap some artwork. Again...I had no idea what the
response would be. I think I heard from 70 people. I've
met some very wonderful people through stamping...lifelong
friends. The best part, though, has been finding out
that I wasn't a failure in the art department. I could
actually make art! What a revelation that was! All in
all, stamping has been an amazing journey for me...who
knew when I picked up that magazine 3 years ago on a
whim what a trip I was about to embark upon?
What Linda hasn't mentioned is another "New Direction"....she
is now a "carver extrordinaire" and is a member
of Carvers' Consortium. Way to go, Linda!
