I am so happy to see Stamping Bella back on SCS. I haven't been back to this site in ages mainly because it just wasn't the same without my Sistahs all meeting here every now and again.
I am Lori Brown. Better known as Pinky. I have been called that all my life. Emily sometimes refers to me as "Pinky Dinky Do". Call me what you like. I will always be part of da' Sistahood.
Stamping Bella has been part of my life since Emily was cutting rubber and shipping from her laundry room at home. I have been an addict of her stamps since I first inked up Cosmobella many years ago. She was my first and I have been collecting ever since.
I live in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. A mere 4 1/2 hour drive way from da' Bella hereself. I try and make the trip there a few times a year. Through this site I have made several friendships and have been fortunate enough to meet a few in person. My dear Laura, (who started this thread) who is just the sweetest person on the planet; Paula, who makes me laugh until my sides hurt and who's colouring ability is mind blowing; and Linda who's talent as an artist is jaw dropping. Also, I can't forget wonderful Dena and Helen who work at the store. Both of which are amazing women. I hope one day to meet (in person) all the other Sistah's who hang out here. I agree with Paula's earlier statement that we should have a Bella colony!
But for now, it is nice to have this forum back so we can all feel a little more connected.
