Do you stamp better or worse when your stressed?
 
Like anybody I have a ton of stuff going on and sometimes the only time my mind is quiet and I can focus is when I stamp, other times I cant think straight enough to create anything.

And honestly if I think about all that's going on then Im surprised I even make it out of bed and showered most days.

Sorry to be debby downer, the last few months have been hard. Just wondering what helps other people.

I stamp Worse in that condition. However, I find that when I am relieved by a friend, I stamp better.

Sorry, hopefully it doesnt last very long.

I stamp better in that condition, because it relaxes me. I enjoy it more then too, because it makes me happy and I am doing it for me and noone else. I hope that everything in your life gets better soon!!

I know how you feel... the last 3 months have been very hard for me. I didn't get much stamping done and most days I didn't even turn on my laptop (those who know me think that's a miracle). :) On the days I did stamp it seemed like nothing I did turned out right.

Hang in there hon.... things do get better.

You know, sometimes I stamp better when I am stressed. It depends on the stress tho'.

Scarey stress where you're worried about big things like health, kids, etc... NO. But stress like- you gotta' get those samples done for an article or release- YES.

Interesting topic!
:)

I agree with Gina! I will say tho that stamping came to me during the most difficult year of my life and provided real joy that i desperately needed so it occurs to me that there is therapy in stamping as well.

I don't know. I don't remember a time when I wasn't stressed!!!!!!

Babsnelson 12-03-2007 07:23 PM

I kinda like the stress too. It seems to help me release all the clutter and really focus in on what I'm doing. But I wouldn't want to work that way all the time ;)

ADW 12-03-2007 08:33 PM

Sometimes I am better and sometimes not. It really does depend on the actual thing being stressed about.:)

When I'm stressed out I have to clean. So my house ends up looking great, but the only time I can stamp under stress is if it is caused by me and my procrastination.

I do find any type of crafting therapeutic though. Once I get into it.

I hope things start getting better for you.

Jeanne S 12-04-2007 04:57 AM

I don't do anything well when I'm stressed.

Some of my best stuff has come to me when I'm under a deadline though. To me that's different than stress though.

Jeanne -- no matter what you stamp, it rocks, whether you are stressed or not. Please send all of your stressed out rejects to me!

Stamping helps keep me sane. It's a place where I can let go of the outside world and get lost in something else for awhile. Without it I'd be a basket case.

sassyat30 12-04-2007 05:35 AM

Honestly, I don't stamp when I'm stressed or overwhelmed (which is why I haven't stamped much the last couple months ;)).

I just find I'm not able to "clear" my mind and concentrate to produce the end product I want.

*hugs* I hope things get better for you! :)

When I'm stressed I can't seem to focus on anything. I work better in the morning or after dinner.
