Default OMG - My hubby published a rubber stamping article about me....

When I went to bed last night I could hear him typing up something with fury.... I got up this morning and he says:

"My article about you is finished"
"Oh yeah - wait - what article?"
"The one about your hobby"
"That was nice of you... what does it, um, say?"
"That I wish I had my dining room table back"

If you'd like to read about his battle with my table space.... here's the article:

Alesha- this is too funny. And, I must admit, pretty much accurate down to the full box of stamp pads and reinkers. I am sending this to my husband, who, like most Rubber Stamper Widows, will appreciate it. Let him know that it is good to admit defeat occasionally

I just happened to stop in the middle of sorting my paper scraps to read this. He's right...it is an extreme hobby!

Now...I'm off to take care of a nasty paper cut...

That is to funny!! My husband used to feel that way now I have a craft room that allows me to shut the door. He never goes in there so he has no idea if something is new or old or a mess!

That is too funny. My DH is lucky that we have a four bedroom house and no kids. One room is his music studio and the other is my craft room.

That is great! He's even got the names of the tools down pat! I am so giving a copy to dh. He'll love it! I should print it out for him so that whenever he complains about the kitchen, I can just point him in the right direction. Maybe I'll even highlight the comment about surrender!!!

Impressive! Not only is your DH very articulate, but he actually knows the correct vernacular of our extreme hobby! What a guy!

My big, tough DH (or so he describes himself...) always stays a safe distance from all my crafty things and we have a strict "Don't Ask - Don't Tell" policy around here. Personally, I think he's just afraid of that glitter-herpes he heard about somewhere...

Too funny. After reading it, I had to send the link to my hubby at work. The dining room table was one thing, but I about lost it when your hubby wrote about the basement! It really hit close to home!

That is actually in the works.... We just moved into this house about 10 weeks ago and we're working on converting the basement into a studio for me. I can't wait (and obviously neither can he).

Too funny! My husband has lost the war but ceded me temporary space in the office. I'm waiting for The Promised Land - a stamp room of my own in the basement.

Just read this and sent it to my hubby as well! OMW - it was too funny!

Alesha - big hugs for you! I am not sure what my response would have been if my DH was a freelance writer.

Alesha~~

Judging by everyone's review, your DH must have truly hit the mark with his article. Unfortunately, I've tried the link several times & even typed it in, but I'm having no luck getting the article to load for me.

It looks like we must have crashed the website's server. Holy crow! It's back up now though!

My hubby just read through all of these responses - he is strutting! He's so cute! I should get him to write a few more.
