Default adoption- I'm available

I may not be at work....ever again....

Have you seen the stamp rooms on this site. Click on gallery...then special collections...then stampin' spaces.

OHMYGOD! I will be working and trying to process paperwork all weekend to
try to see if one of the ladies with the really cool stamp rooms will adopt
me. Shhhh- don't tell my hubby. I have to start packing before he gets home.


tiptoeing out......

Default to interested potential new parents

Just an addition...

Okay so 51 may be a bit old to adopt. However, I am employed so come with income for addiction. Although not currently in recovery, would be willing to negotiate on a 12-stamp step program. I also clean up after myself, make an incredible spaghetti sauce, would galdly leave family, children and pets behind for new life in stamp heaven. :P

You can come live with me, however I will need you to do the weekly cleaning, the daily cooking, the daily running of child to elementary school. Oh!! I almost forgot....the dog needs to be walked 2x a day and the cat box needs to be cleaned everyday.


After all that is done, you are pretty much on your own to enjoy stampin!!

BTW: Bring a jacket and some winter gear, it is September in Alaska and it is getting mighty nippy real fast!!!


EDIT: I forgot that you have a job as well, so don't forget to go to work as well!

Okay I can deal with that offer. After all, I have 5 children, 3 grandkids, 2 dogs (one needing seizure meds and one just plain dumb...a bassett), 2 cats, and one great-white-hunter husband. During the rut and hunting season, he'll hardly notice I am gone. It's not like your chore list is anything new. Better post pictures of your stamping heaven before someone else snatches me up.

ROFL!!!!!! Hilarious!!!!

I wish I could adopt you, but I don't have a cool stamp area like some of these other lucky ladies! I stamp in my kitchen....which is kind of nice, because that way I can refuel quickly (with chocolate, or brownies) and get right back to work!!!!

I haven't yet posted a photo, but I LOVE my craft room. We built counter tops all around three sides of the room, have cabinets suspended above, and floor cabinets holding up the counter tops. But, here's the very best part... My DH and I made a large paper holder that hangs on the wall. I bought the same plastic covered metal racks that scrapbook stores have to store their papers (angled wire shelves), and each hold 12 colors of paper. So, above each of the 12 shelves, I printed out the four SU! color groups name, ran them through the Xyron machine and have those above each of the groups of shelves. Then, I added cubbies underneath each paper group and store all colors of the SU! ribbons. Above the paper shelves (and below the paper group name), there is a cubby that I used to keep each box of ink pads (before I got my color caddy), and coordinating colors of embossing powder and buttons. Even people that don't stamp LOVE my paper thingy...especially the men... go figure, huh?

So, now that I've described my stamping area, I'm sure if you are around 18 years old, blonde, and cute, my husband would LOVE to adopt you!! Okay, before I start getting e-mails... I'm JUST KIDDING!!!

Love you all and all of your ideas.

Lauren~

Oh, deer- come live with me. I just finished putting the second coat of paint on my new stamping/craft room. My son is away at college so I've taken over his room. Except for having to share the room with me during stamp time it would be all yours. Imagine, you could sleep among the rubber.

It would be so much fun to have someone to help me organize this room and to share in the fun. I don't have any stamping playmates any more. I've been in the gallery looking at all of the great examples of everyone's rooms and I have some great ideas! I can't wait to get it all organized so I can stamp. I haven't done so in a week.

I would have to insist that you quit your job unless you happen to be a SU demo in which case I'd have to insist that you keep your job. I'm home all day so I would want you where I could find you whenever the need-want-desire to stamp hit. (It hits often!)

We could share the house work and get is done so quick, we could spend lots of time on SCS. Imagine the fun!

Default adoption

Hi Deer...........I have a stamp room (that's always in the process of being improved lol) and guess what!!! I live pretty darn close to you........I'm 52 and have 2 girls and 5 grandkids......oh, and did I mention that stamping is my life. Anyway, I'm Leanne Enox and I live in Marysville (pretty much at the bottom of Getchell Hill) You should give me a holler and we can get together. I'm in the book or email and we can figure something out.

Default best offer

Darla
I think you have the best offer. I may be yours in no time except hubby is now looking over my shoulder. Get the sheets changed in case I can make a get-away.

You gals are way too fun. Just think all this fun from a little idea I had this morning after seeing the cool pics of stamp rooms.

Thanks for all the laughs.

I had a basset-Siberian husky mix when I was a kid! She was not the brightest bulb in the closet either!! But it was good to think of her again; thanks for the smile

HI Deer,
I'm pretty sure you wouldn't want to be adopted by me since my stampin nook is only 5'x8' ...
but I wanted to note that if I disappeared during deer season (beginning w/ bow season in Oct. but the obsession seems to start in Aug) my hubby would never know it either.
I'm only glad I found stamping so I could have an equally pressing obsession!

glad to know there are other stamping/hunting widows-
I was thinking of hostin a hunting widows stamping day, what do you think?

Default hunters

Last year when I was probably complaining about feeling rather neglected during hunting season, my hubby mistakenly suggested that I needed my own hobby. He dare not ever complain about the cost of any latest gadget. It couldn't compare with hotel for days, all his gear and tools, the licensing etc. Actually he is very supportive and likes the fact I am involved. He is trained to go ooh and ahhh when I show him a new card...or else! It's off to the craft store for some new fix.

He just returned late last night. No elk. Wouldn't ya know it- those smart creatures were standing on the wrong side of the road. They know where it's open or not. Whew! I still have plenty of freezer space. The hunter is happy since he has been out in nature and seen "fresh sign" if you know what I mean. Looking forward to more hunts...tee hee.

I too am a hunting widow....dh will be gone the first week of November to hunt for that week....
It's good that he fills the freezer, but I like it when he sticks closer to home!

Back to the topic....some of the stamp rooms on the site are outstanding!!! It's like being in a store! But I do have my own "space" and maybe one day I will get my own "room"!!! A girl's gotta dream!

SheScrapbooks - here ya go:

http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...y.php?cat=3376

For all you hunting widows - I would guess that you have friends who are also seasonal widows. Well, I have a silly little poem for a bath salts cello bag w/ topper that I'd be happy to share that makes a little cute gift. It's upstairs on the other computer so I'll edit in later.

almost forgot - here's my topper poem:

When the hunter is gone and you have time for yourself,
Grab a mug of hot water and this bag from the shelf.
Turn the music up loud if you're in the mood to sing,
or put in the ear plugs so you won't hear the phone ring.
He's out in the woods with the rain and the cold,
you'll hear all about it when the tales are told (and told).
But for now just relax, forget your cares and woes -
it's not your fault he's out there and can't feel his toes.
Use all the hot water and soak till you're all wrinkly,
don't forget the chocolate in the wrapper that's crinkly.


Every time someone wrote "Hi Deer" I just laughed! I know you're all saying deer from her user name but my brain converts it to dear which seems funny to say to someone you're just meeting.

FYI - I have a stamping room, too, and would love to have you come over for some stamping. The only problem is that it would take a couple of days of cleaning and organizing to get to the desk space to stamp on. We switched around 5 rooms at least a month ago and everything is still in a state of chaos. On the plus side, I don't have any pets that you would have to walk and/or clean up after. My DH does most of the cooking since I seem to have forgotten how but I'm sure he'd be willing to share the kitchen if you had the urge to cook. Plus, my 6 yr old DD is beyond sweet and would tell you that you make nice (or pretty) cards and you should put them in your gallery.

So, if you get to take over a room when they leave for college...., then that only leaves me..., oh dang, 18 more years. Shoot a boot. Oh well, I guess the kids are cute. (Actually, my 5 wk old is really cute. She currently nursing so loud you'd think she was guzzling a brewski.)

I have a craft room kinda sorta. It is mostly filled with dh's junk from years gone by. I can't seem to make him get rid of any of it and he is retired so I can't do it because he would see me carting it off. I like the sound of Lauren's room. I would love to go there. Sounds like plenty of space and soooooooooo organized. Maybe I can take little by little out and start rearranging. Yep, think that's what I'll do.

Default explaining "deer"

I'm "Deer" not dear since it refers to the 4 legged kind. Hubby is "elkhunter" as far as nicknames go on line. I know this is getting off stamping topic and I should figure out how ot put this somewhere else. I'm pretty new at this so please "bear" with me (lol-I crack myself up). Besides a day job, the elkhunter is also a musician. One Halloween band performance, he dressed in camo. Yes, I had the horns, brown long shirt, nose, balck nose & "whitetail" and was his catch of the day.
