Hi Robin! I think we "met" on another thread. I'm in Berks County so probably about an hour from you. I'm more of a digi gal than a stamper but probably because I've never taken the time to learn but would really love to
I'm assuming you mean Denver, CO? (there is a Denver, PA near me but I'm sure that's not what you meant).
I loved Denver, CO. The people are so tourist friendly! It was cool to stay on the 12th floor of the hotel across from Invesco Field, and I spent a few nights walking 6th street. This was June, though, and I'm not sure I would like CO in winter, I'm not so crazy about our winters as it is!
I honestly don't know any stampers personally. I haven't quite ventured out into the rubber stamp world, I hear it can get quite expensive. Plus not knowing anyone makes it difficult to learn without getting frustrated. I do have last year's SU catalog that I've drooled over many times, but I don't remember where I got it from and there's no demo info on it.
I'm a digi girl as of now, and my obsession is mostly seeing what I can get from white paper, white ribbons, white flowers and coloring them with alcohol inks to coordinate with my digis. I also have a silhouette that I love as if she were my 4th kid.
So basically I am an obsessor of many, master of nothing. I mostly consider myself a "budget card maker", but I also dabble a little in handmade paper beads (just bracelets so far), vinyl decor. Basically love to find money saving ways to make things myself. There is so much I want to learn, including rubber stamping. I also have my mother-in-law's old sewing machine that she gave me 2 years ago, but I haven't swallowed my fear and dove into that yet.
So that's me in a nutshell (that makes me the nut???)
I totally get the need to "learn how". I think it drives my husband a bit insane, how much I need to know how do to things! Crafty things, of course. I love stamping, and I make pottery on the wheel. I own a sewing machine also, and badly need someone to teach me what to do with it! I fumble with digi, but have a blast when I am. So, we are on the same page Leeann! We can be nuts together!
I still have some littles, so everything is kind of peppered in-between everything they need. Which is always the priority around here! The hubby works a lot, so my girls and I are always here there and everywhere. Thankfully the oldest (9) likes to make things too, so we get crafty when the little one (4) is asleep.
We were in NJ this past weekend-I bet I drove near you on the way! I saw lots of signs for Reading. Honestly, I never head out that way so I had no idea where I was going. Just doing what I was told by the Nuvi LOL.
