Default Why do you spend time on SCS?

I am curious to know the main reason you spend time on Splitcoast?



There are many layers of reasons for me, so I know this is not the easiest question to answer, but give it a try!

I think I am a collector of information. SCS is a fantastic resource--somebody always has the answer to every question that comes up! And it is nice to have adult interaction that is available whenever my schedule allows me a few minutes.

One of the reasons is because I would like to stamp, but my stamp area is messy AND it is easier to be interrupted by the kids on the computer (than to be thrown off of my stampin' groove). I also learn bunches of stuff here .

I probably spend too much time on here....

The reason why??? Hmmm...I would have to say the wealth of information, the awesome gallery and all the super nice ladies! Oh, and since I'm addicted to the challenges add that to the list too!

I love SCS for so many reasons. But, I am too tired and sick to post right now. I'll try again in the morning.

I am addicted like Jami. But why am I addicted?...Loneliness I think. My house is too big and too empty so I surf through the boards just lookin' for someone to "talk" to and something to "talk" about.

It's hard to remember what life was like before the internet. There were probably lots of lonely people. So glad we have the internet.

Default The true story...

Great question. Recently I wrote the following article for my parents' monthly newsletter. I think it sums up my thoughts about SCS rather well. Here it is:

The true story behind why I love Splitcoaststampers so much.

About a year and a half ago, I heard about Splitcoaststampers (SCS), a stamping website. It was right after I had started stamping after receiving some of Grandma’s stamps. I really enjoyed all the fun ideas, cards, projects and information on that site. I could look up every question I had about stamping. As I continued to browse around in others’ galleries, I met a woman named DawnL. She and I seemed to be commenting on the same card, right after each other. At first we sent a few private messages back and forth and soon a whole crop of us came together. Now we chat on a thread every day. Everyone is kind, concerned, loving, thoughtful and helpful. No one disparages another. No one is put down. No matter your card making skill level, someone looks for the good parts in your card and posts a comment on your card. Maybe you used a neat color combo. Or maybe you had some really great ribbon. SCS leaves you feeling uplifted and special.

Now what would life be like if we used that approach in our daily, face-to-face life as we interacted with other people? What if we looked for the good in people, seeing past any flaws we might think that they have? I have been more consciously doing this in my interactions with others. I suppose it is what Jocelyn was talking about last Sunday night in our weekly family chats. Charity…it’s all about Charity. Life would be so much more enjoyable, so much more special and so much more fun if we looked past someone’s idiosyncrasies and concentrated on boosting up their morale on the good things. And sending out or receiving a few cards in the mail wouldn’t hurt either!

I actually don't have that much time to spend on here but I FIND a few minutes here and there. I call it my unwind time. I have a lot of stresses and I don't have to think too much when I am doing something that is fun and I like.
