interesting question.....

I spent two hours stamping this morning. I work Tues - Thurs, do I don't usually stamp on those days. I almost always stamp on Mondays and Fridays. And the weekend it just depends on what else is going on. I'm going to go back down to my stamping room here soon.

So, I guess maybe 5-7 hours.

I'm really embarrassed with myself...feel a New Year's Resolution coming on...

I spent 1-3 hours a day reading blogs, looking at SCS gallery and forum... I dream lots, but do little. I probably only spend 4 hours/month actually stamping yeah...I need to change this! When I do stamp, I REALLY enjoy it.....love it when I get a great creation....

am I alone?

Lately I have been stamping more because I am trying to finish off Christmas cards and gifts. In the last month or so, I have probably been spending approx. 10 hours a week. I try to stamp for an hour or so each night that I am at home, but the nights that my mom or sister join me, we usually spend much longer than that! Then on the weekends, I try to get in a couple of hours on the days that I don't have a lot scheduled. Just last night I spent 4 hours doing up gift baskets, candles & cards.

It really depends. Right now a lot, because I made christmas cards, coasters for presents, etc. I also made an entire scrapbook for someone for Christmas this year and two card sets so I've been stamping 2-4 hours a day.

As a demo I stamp a lot as well, because I love to stamp and am always trying to create new ideas for myself and my customers. Plus, it helps me keep my blog updated.

Um...no. I spend so much time on SCS that I often use up what little free time I had, so no time to actually stamp. I may join you in the New Year's Resolution.

About 12-20 hours a week I'd guess... some weeks less, some weeks more! I am on a few DT... and I have personal projects I try to complete each week. I try to create something every day.

I'd say approx. 15-20 a week unless there's something going on that keeps me from stamping on the weekend.

Nope. I tend to do the same thing. But I do have days that I stamp all day.

Well, up until last week, I was making items to sell so I was stamping 20-30 hours a week. Now that's pretty much done til after the holidays and I am busy stamping my cards and gifts, etc. So will probably end up in the 20+ hours this week too.

It varies for me, but I'd say in a normal week (not preparing for a craft show and no major events) about 15-20 hours. About 3 cards worth. LOL!

It comes and goes. Sometimes I scrapbook instead. And sometimes I'm loading up on cards to sell. This last week I put in almost 20 hours, I think, but it's broken up with computer time.
