Default Husbands VS Stamping

I'm not sure if mine is jealous.. but he did offer for me to "Stamp him" so he could get some attention LOL! I try to explain to him.. this is like you in the Tools section of Sears or at Home Depot.. or when he got his new phone..Anyone else have these types of comments made to them about the stamping addiction?

OH thats a funny one! No my hubby has never offered to let me stamps him. Although I would probably have to do it just to make me laugh if he did. Mine has said and there mommy is in her little corner of the world if he comes home and finds me in my craft corner. I have to say my hubby is pretty supportive of my hobby though. Up here in Alaska it is very easy to get the blues and feel very secluded. I heard him once say to his mother when she said wow that is a lot of stamps, well I figure it is cheaper than therapy

My husband goes through "ups & downs" with my stamping. If he's got a lot going on then he doesn't mind me being busy with my business. But if he's bored then he is jealous of anything having to do with stamping! I guess the key is "balance" and I am working on it.

Well, I don't have a hubby, so I can't use him as an example. But I can use the minister in my church!

I have heard him make several (what I would consider to be) disparaging comments about stamping. We have a SU demo in the church, and many gals who like making cards. Our minister is usually a pretty decent guy, but he's definitely got a thing about this stamping stuff.

One Sunday he actually used card making as an illustration in his sermon, and it wasn't particularly complimentary. Oh, he tried very hard to be careful what he said, but it still came across a bit negative. After the service, one of the older ladies who does a lot of cardmaking and card giving said just one comment to me in passing: "He just doesn't get it." I thought that was priceless.

My DH has not said too much. Just a passing comment on how much stuff I have. And I am lucky that I can stamp during the day when all the kids are at school and DH is at work. I try not to do too much stamping at night. But there are some nights that I can't wait for him to go to bed and sneak back to the stamp room and finish a card.

Not only do I go online a lot and spend a lot of time in my scrap room but I also work part time at a scrap store so I'm gone 2-3 nights a week so hubby does grumble a bit sometimes but not too loudly or for too long. I just make sure I find time to just be with him and not mention scrap stuff (its hard tho ...not the being with him part but the not talking about scrapping part LOL).

I'm sure he grumbles to his buddies tho LOL!

mine doesnt say anything....although i do share my new card creations with him proudly displaying and he just shakes his head and acts like they are the nicest cards hes ever seen when really hes thinking..."its just a card" and im sure they all looks the same to him. of course knowing this i will continue to show him cards so i can secretly giggle inside because he just doesnt get the obsession. thats ok, hes working on rebuilding a jeep in the garage and i feel the same about that jeep as he probably does my cards..."why dont you just save some time and go buy one" lol

My husband will make his little "snippy" comments when I have been stamping constantly for two or more days. It seems that if I skip a day or so inbetween than he is okay. But if I'm preparing for a party, or working on some sort of project that is taking a lot of my time he get's peeved.

Men, they're just a bunch of babies.

My husband made a snippy comment to me when I was busy finishing up some swap cards (I've got several to finish around the same time). He said "how come you'll spend hours working on these things to send to strangers, but when I ask you to do something you don't want to".

I didn't tell him it's because the stuff he asks me to do is boring. I'm a SAHM and I figure doing everyone's laundry, cleaning, cooking, day care, homework, yardwork, etc., etc., is enough doing for him.

My kids are still young, so I've got them most of the time. That means I don't normally get to stamp during the day. I wait until night-time to stamp because it's the only time I have! But then my husband gets unhappy in a passive-aggressive way if I stamp too much. (I have to figure out that he's really mad at me when he's raging around trying to look for his cell phone or remote control or something.) So, lately, to finish a swap, I've had to resort to the same thing - waiting for him to go to bed (I have to lay down in bed next to him), then getting up to finish my work!

Default DH and Stamping

Mine only comments on occasion.
I have a lot of stuff - but I always have to go to JoAnn's or Hobby Lobby especially when there's a 50% off coupon. He notices that.

HE bought me a nice sewing/stamping table AND a nice Ott-type lamp.
He looks at my new catties when I get them.

I was cutting out some new stamps the other day and I made a comment to DH that I was going to get my demo to cut them for me from now on. We have a girl in our club who doesn't see close up well so our demo mounts her stamps for her (nice, huh?).

DH said "When else would you touch them, if you don't have to cut them out".

When I disappear up into the bonus room (my stamping space) for a few hours - he comments - but I remind him that he's just downstairs watching TV and I'm probably watching the SAME program while I'm stamping so he could come upstairs with me.

Oh well!!

Today I was at the Hobby Lobby (spending spending!!) and I was getting a bunch of things...looking at the acrylic stamps and there was a lady in the isle so I asked her if she had used them ever and did she like them. We chatted a bit and I told her my dh's comments about 'all the money wasted' she laughed and said "I need this for my sanity, look at it this way...therapy or stamps? Stamps are cheaper" I like that so much I may have to use it on my dh the next time he squawks about the cost of this hobby...ROFL

My hubby would have to pry himself out of his garage in order to complain! Really, it hasn't been a problem for us. He knows my first choice is always him. If he wants to do something and I'm stamping, unless I'm in a crunch to finish a project, I'm right there. I do have the luxury of being able to stamp often while he is at work, as I do shifts. In that way, he is not really in competition for the same time.

This thread is cracking me up!! My husband is "jealous" of all the time I spend on SCS and when he comes in from work, his typical comment is, "Oh are you on THAT stamping site?" I used to try and make sure that I was off by the time he walked in the door, but I figure...I work all day if I want to relax by talking stamping for an hour or so when I get home than he should just be happy that I am doing something that makes me happy.

He just walked in and read my post...hmmm. Gotta go out and take our evening walk..stamping later..

My hubby says that I get 'lost' in SCS. He also makes comments on how many stamp sets I own! I own 8 sets and he thinks that I own too many....I showed him some of the pictures of the ladies on here and their craft rooms - needless to say that he was 'floored' LOL! Anyhoo, to compromise him supporting me and my addiction...er...hobby, I have started rooting for his hockey team (Yuck! I hate hockey!!!) To appease him on the money that I spend of my stamps, I have decided to sell some of my cards at a local gift shop - He hasn't figured out yet, that I now need more stamping supplies to do this .....ssshhhhhh! Don't tell him! LOL

Time to put DH to work, helping you get ready for a demo -- cut/score cardstock, pull accessories together, etc. They love to feel useful.

My DH is really impressed with the Xyron, Sizzix/Sidekick -- anything that does something cool. Which, of course, is most everything stamp-related, but I'm working on him accessory by accessory. With enough time, he'll get on board.

Smile Sleepless in (fill in the town)!

You gals are too funny, waiting for hubby to fall asleep so you can sneak back down to stamp! ROFLOL! What a hoot.

It doesn't take long for them to drop off (if it does, just browse SU catalog or stamping mag while you patiently wait) and you're good to go.

I've never really thought about the effect my stamping addiction has on my DH. I'm going to ask and see what he says, especially after reading all these varied responses to the question. I've been stamping close to 15 years and we're still married, so I guess that says it all!

My husband encourages it. Says it is "good for me" -- and even suggests I buy things sometimes. What a guy!!

I must be one of the lucky ones - my sweetie does not say a word. We just got married 4 years ago - both in our 40's and never married before. Our one understanding was that he liked to spend money on music and speakers (you don't want to know how many sets of speakers are in this condo!) and that I spend money on my stamping. Part of that understanding is that I use what I spend money on - and for the most part all of the sets I have bought get used.

I make cards for our church shut-ins (anniversaries and birthdays), family and friends birthdays, thank you's, etc. - so I do crank out a good number of cards in a year.

He also understands my once a month stamp club - he just knows he's on his own that night (we kinda pass in the doorway and kiss). And he just laughs when SheStampsHeCamps calls and asks "do you want to do the Amish stamps store tour" - heck, every now and again he even offers to shuttle us around to them.

And he does comment on cards that I make. He's told me he doesn't particularly like a color combination, really likes this or that, etc. And I appreciate his comments - cause I am my own worst critic when it comes to cardmaking. He always says, "you don't have to make fancy, just making them and remembering the shut-ins means a lot to them".

I don't complain about golf, so he doesn't complain about stamping. The only difference is he goes somewhere to golf. If I could only get him to take the kids. He actually likes the attention he gets when it is someone's birthday at work and he gives them one of my cards or tins. He is blown away by SCS. I am running 3 swaps right now, and he can't believe all the people who are as into this as I am. He did comment today that he hopes the mailman doesn't think we are dealing drugs with all the padded envelopes that go to and from our house...kidding of course!

My husband wishes he had enabler alerts on his paintball forums. I think he's jealous of SCS. He spends enough time and $$ on his forums and hobby that he can't complain about this and knows it.

My husband just walked in and saw me reading this thread and said, "Oh, is this your stamping support group?"

I'm a lucky one, too. My DH told me two years ago after I'd been a demo and stamping for only two years that he didn't think I'd stick with it that long. I'm notorious for picking up all the "stuff" for a hobby, then dropping it after only a few months. I'm still going strong after over 4 years of stamping, and my husband comments on how proud he is that I'm making my business and hobby work!

I think I'll keep him.

This thread is hilarious - my DH is really supportive and never says anything about my stamping. In fact, lately I've been commenting to him about how I'd really like this new machine called a cuttlebug...hint, hint...and he said he'd make sure our kids know that's what I want for Mother's Day! He even asked if he should take the 40% coupon out of the Michael's ad to buy it! Smart guy!

Aaaaaah the age old question!!!! My DH grumbles every now and again, but for the most part he puts up with it.....and he's a good egg about it...

But .......When someone finds the cure, preferably in pill form, can you please share with the rest of us

Default yup - got one here too!

I brought in a bag of 16 stamp pads today and DH asked "how many of those do you need, anyway?"

Well, I only have full size pads in basic black, brown, BB and 1/2 the In Colors, today I got the remaining In Colors, and 3 each of the other colors families and another basic black.

I said, "Oh honey, there are 60 colors available, I restrained myself!"

I didn't have the heart to tell him about the House Mouse order that should be here in the next few days, or the 5 packages of CS I just ordered Monday.....


Hey what's that 5 lb. ATV catalog on the table for anyway??? lol

My hubby can't say anything...he spends as much time with his beloved bagpipes as I do stamping. I'd also venture to say that his "hobby" costs as much if not more than my "addiction" (his words, not mine)!
