Default stamping & excercise

Thought you ladies might find this info interesting and useful as arguements when you are being chided about not getting any exercise.



STAMPING AND EXERCISE

We all understand stamping and scrapbooking as a hobby, but what about their merits as exercise? Ladies, I believe we have inadvertently overlooked the physical benefits of stamping and scrapbooking!! For example:


CYCLING: Take out your stamps and pads, make some projects, clean the stamps, put them back, take them out, make some projects, clean them, put them back. . . .sounds like cycling to me!



SIT-UPS: Like. . .duh! You have to SIT UP to stamp!



RUNNING: Constantly running out of cardstock and adhesive!



SKIPPING: Skipping your lunch and stamping right through the day!



CRUNCHES: Trying to finish stamping the birthday card as you are running out the door to the party! = time crunch!



JOGGING: Great scrapbook pages are perfect for jogging the memory!



SWIMMING: Swimming in supplies! Woo hooooooooo!



PUSH-UPS: Push up the total sales on your workshop and get more benefits! Yipeeeee!



FAST WALKING: From your stampin' area to the front door and back again, constantly checking to see if the UPS man has come yet with your new stamps!



AEROBICS: an exercise used to increase the heart rate. I increase my heart rate by cruising through the catalogue and finding great stamp sets to order and very cool projects to make!!



LOW-IMPACT AEROBICS: Setting your budget at under $100!!! (Tricky)



STRETCHES: Stretching the amount you have to spend to get the most bang for your buck!


. . .and don't forget:



DANCING: dancing the happy dance every time new goodies arrive at your door!!!

Hilarious!! Who said stampers don't have "curves"? tee hee. Maybe you could start your own video series of "Sweatin' In The Stamp Room" Thanks for the laugh and for sharing! Have a great day!

Here is another one:
If you are a SpiltCoast Web-member you also spend a lot of time ROFL. I think that would burn plenty of calories.
