There are SOME stamps that I like in the new TAC book but SU will always be where I buy... I HATE!! the unmounted stamps. When I stamp I want to be able to just "grab" the stamp and stamp not have to mount it on an acrylic block. There were VERY FEW stamps in the TAC book that I would even think about buying too... they do have nice papers but that is about all I can say for them. All the unmounted stamps that I have purchased are in my sell box now

I am very sorry that I posted anything about flowers since I ended up taking away from the best part of the thread...MOPS. It's a great organization for moms with little ones at home who need adult conversation, an hour of relaxation and a good message.

My apologies...

Thanks, Vicki, for the heads up about the "sick" factor. That is one of my concerns about putting my daughter in any nursery (she is 13 mos), and I will definitely check it out.

I was just going to say that -- I just got it although most of my stamps are SU I did get that Gerber daisy stamp because I am such a gerber daisy fan.

Definitely worth checking out! Our MOPS group just finished its first year, but I know we are very vigilant in sanitizing each play area before and after each meeting. Don't want to spread any nasty germs...

As far as starting up a group, it's not too bad. I would say you need to have at least five committed women, though, to share the workload. It has been an incredible experience for me and I can't wait to get started with the "Fresh Air!" Our steering team is meeting on Tuesday to start nailing down plans for the year - I already have a good list of projects I'm planning!

I know when our non-MOPS groups was started, it was just neighborhood gals. I live in a development that has 3 "mini" neighborhoods sort of connected. Everybody's mailboxes are these big boxes with 20 or so locked boxes...perfect for taping up flyers, lol.

For several months one gal would walk by my house with her baby stroller and we'd chat as I was outside with my son. Eventually all the "we shoulds" became an afternoon of putting up flyers and meeting at her house. Nothing formal at all. But that first meeting we had 8 moms! And kids, of course, lol. Since it was summer there wasn't much worry about germs since we were outside in the yard.

I didn't stay with the group long, since mine was close to Kindergarten age. I did hear that they wound up affiliating with some group, maybe MOPS.

I guess my point is, if you live in an area where it seems like there might be other moms, try putting up flyers and just see what you get!

The MOPS I went to was a very big church with a lot of members. About 90 MOPS members, so there were a good amount of kids in each child care section. Probably about 12-15 on a regular basis in the same area as my son. Plus, since the church was big, who knows how many kids were eating everything on Sunday - baby's are in the mouth stage where everything goes in the mouth and they share all their germs. I don't know if they sanitized everything or not, but after getting something after the 3rd time I was a bit peeved. It was costing me to go in ways I wasn't expecting. When I kept him out of the play area, he didn't get sick.

MOPS mom's are told to keep their kids out of childcare if they are sick, have a runny nose, etc., and perhaps they did, but who knows what happened on Sunday! Lots of people hate to miss out on something and will still put their kids in if they are sick, and many diseases are contagious even before symptoms arise (like Roseola)...so the mom doesn't even know their kid is sick. I think after age 2, I would be more inclined to put them in child care when their immune systems are a tad better. But I hate to do it with infants as their body's are still working to create their immune system. So I hesitate to go at this time.

And allamericanstampers...I found nothing wrong with your post. This is the general stamping forum and we all like to know our options. If there was a great daisy stamp at Michael's, we may want to know that too. We all encourage each other to buy lots of non-catalog stuff as well, like the ATG gun, great stamp cleaner, other company's stamps, prismacolor pencils... Nothing wrong with being an enabler. I know MOPS groups have a budget, so the TAC stamp may be more attractive if they would want a stamp for a project. Thanks for sharing.

Just my $.10

This sunflower set is much cheaper than a similar sunflower set that SU had featured a few years back, and in my humble opinion, it is so much more beautiful than any other flower out there. Just think of the amazing projects you could make with it!

I know that my MOPS group used a Decorative Daisy to stamp on t-shirts, and they are adorable! I wear mine all the time!

Mary Rose,

I love that set and am hoping to get it with my next order! I think it is awesome how you can stamp the flower in one direction and then turn it 180 and stamp again with another color to get a beautiful flower! I can't wait to get my set and I'll be checking out your gallery for ideas!

TFS

Don't be sorry. I bought both! LOL. That's what we do here. We enable one another!

Actually, the TAC stamp is beautiful. I did order it and I'm glad you posted the info for me. I am an equal opportunity stamper. Let's face it, when you only use stamps from one company, it's like going to Baskin and Robbin's Ice cream and always getting Vanilla...there's 30 other flavors! LOL

And,, of course- Hooray for MOPS!

SU! is definitely the one to get hands down. So beautiful and versatile and a little over 3 dollars a stamp with the best quality rubber out there is a steal!!!

Actually, I like them both but then again, I love anything that is Daisys or Sunflowers! Two of my favourite flowers. I really do enjoy the fact that SU! sells sets that co-ordinate, and I'm not stuck using my imagination all the time trying to find something that goes with another. But I really do like that little Daisy........
