Question How often do you stamp, really??

I try to set aside time every day, but some days I just can't get to it, or have no mojo, or whatever. And somedays I make one card, and that's it. So how often do you stamp?? Every day? How many hours at a time??

I call myself a 'One Card Wonder' lately - that's all I seem to have time for about once a week. LOL

If only I spent the time I spend on SCS on card making and scrapbooking, well, let's just say that my stamp room would be OVERFLOWING with great and wonderful creations.

Same here ~~ I get lost on SCS ~~ by the time I'm done perusing & ready to stamp, it's either time for me to do something else (make dinner, get the kids, etc) or it's 2 hours past my bedtime!!! LOL!!

I, too, would love to stamp everyday. The thought is there. Somedays I can get more done than other days. I do try to stamp each week for about an hour if that's all I can get in.

almost every day.

Sometimes a bunch one day and then not the next. But at the very least, every other day.

Anymore it seems that Monday through Friday, I'm card dormant. Than on Sat. & Sun. there's a flurry of activity. Yesterday, I made 6 cards. On the days before that, nothing.

Since I started my blog in October, I've been stamping so much more often. At least 2-3 times per week I stamp a new project to feature on my website.

I'm afraid that you can tell by the state of my house and my malnourished family that I stamp everyday. If only I didn't need sleep.

I try to stamp 2-3 times per week and generally crank out 2-4 cards per stamping session. Ideally, I'd stamp daily but with full-time work and 3 kids it's hard. By the time we get home, get homework and dinner done, baths, kids in bed, I'm ready to crash and go to sleep myself

I'm off work next week for Spring Break so I'm sure that I'll get much more stamping done then.

I stamp every single day, even if it's only a partial project. Actually, it seems that all I do are partial projects. I have tons of half-finished cards laying around. The outside of the card is the most fun - but my DH wants detail on the INSIDE and the BACK! And then he wants me to actually fill it in! LOL Well, 95% of the cards I make are for him. But I have planned my life around have free time - no kids, pets, or plants. Friends that I only see once a year. A DH who is a domestic god (so I don't have to run any errands or clean anything [I thank him with cards]). No overtime at work. So I have no excuse NOT to stamp. Also, DH's admiration of my cards is nice, but I also get additional jollies from posting them here and seeing how many views I get!

I even bought myself a huge lunchbox (a cooler actually) so I could fit my watercolor set and stamp pads and paper, pens, brushes, and stamps (um, and my lunch) in there, so I stamp at work during lunch sometimes too.

Not as much as I'd like to, I'm afraid. My 3 kids keep me pretty busy as they're still so little and require lots of time and attention. They'd love to 'help' me stamp more, but I'm afraid it really isn't as enjoyable with their 'help.'

I stamp about 2-3 times a week. I try to do a challenge or two. If I am just CASEing something I only stamp for about 1.5 hours, but if I'm in the designing phase of a card, or mass producing cards for a holiday, then I can easily stamp for 2-3 hours. I'm an empty nester, so I guess I have a little more spare time than many of the young moms on this site - even though I work full time.

If it's a good week, I get to stamp every day. If it is a typical week, I may stamp 2-3 days and make 4-6 cards. It depends. I've decided to spend some time learning new techniques rather than making cards as I think if I had more techniques that I was really comfortable with that I could be more creative. KWIM?

I rarely stamp, which is ridiculous, because I have a TON of stuff. I have 2 hyperactive little boys who can't leave me alone during the day, and by night time, I'm usually too worn out to even think about stamping. I tried buying my boys little dollar stamps and ink from Michael's to keep them occupied so I could stamp too, but they got bored too quickly and made too big of a mess.

Next year my oldest will be in school full time and my youngest will start preschool, so I'm hoping to start cranking things out then.

Okay, after all that, the answer is probably an average of once a month. But I spend a little time on SCS EVERY DAY!

Lately, I've been more s'bing than s'ping. When I feel more caught up with the photos, I'll go back to stamping... since I'm one of those s'bers that doesn't stamp in the s'bk. But that may change...

Default Whever I need a car

I stamp when I need a card, birthday or whatever. They seem to come in bunches with a LOT some months and hardly any other months.

I do a lot of scrapbooking too and there is cross usage of the products which I like.

mostly everyday for me, there may be some occasions when I have done soooo much stamping that I give it a rest for a few days but that doesn't happen tooo often.

My favorite saying is: I only stamp on days that end with "Y". That seems to suit me very well.

Now that I have gone back to work, once a week. I may start a card at the beginning of the week, but don't finish until my days off. Just can't get the time in.

I try to stamp every day, but sometimes there's just nothing there, lol. So I leave it for a day or so and start again. I do find I make most on Friday, Saturday and Sundays, but I think that is because I sleep better and longer at the weekend and so feel more refreshed.

I do something "stamp related" every day. I either make a card, make a technique background (to be used later), stamp some images, or maybe just look at blogs and get ideas (especially when my mojo is lo)

happily addicted to stamping...

I try to do something every couple of days, which isn't nearly as often as I *intend* to stamp. I usually have to wait til the girls go to bed, but then I blow all my stamping time surfing SCS!
