Hi and welcome from New Zealand! I am retired too and spend a LOT of time on this forum! I love the tutorials (click on 'Tutorials' at the top of the page) and the galleries. There is so much inspiration here. You can also ask questions about stamps or inks or anything related to paper crafts if you click on 'Forum' and scroll down and check out the headings of the various links.
To live a creative life, we must lose our fear of being wrong. Joseph Chilton Pearce
