I have been stamping for about 15 years. A friend invited me to a Stampin' Up party. My supplies all fit in a small plastic shoe box. I was so happy a proud of all my things. Now they hardly all fit in a huge stamp room. I have become very involved with scrapbooking also. I have done lots of different crafts most of my life but paper crafting is what I love most.
I live in a small town in WA state and I'm fortunate to have two local stamp stores plus a small Michael's in town. Most of my friends are stamper also. My best friends I have met through the hobby.
