Default Things that make me wonder

when it comes to stamping, papercrafting, scrapbooking, etc.

I often wonder how come I spend so much money and have so many supplies and I never seem to use them all.

I often wonder why do people sew on paper? I don't get it. Maybe it's because it isn't my style or maybe I have an aversion to sewing on anything much less paper.

And what is the use of paper piecing tool? I mean, seriously, isn't that just a really large needle with a protector on one end and a point on the other? Why would I need a paper piecing tool when I have really big needles that I can use anyway? It confuses and confounds me the things I "think" I might need.

I never understood digital scrapbooking. But I've seen people's layouts that have done nothing but digital scrapbooking and it's amazing. I like the feel of the paper and the embellishments and the stamps, but some people are just so good doing digitized stuff.

There are a lot of things I still don't quite understand, but that's the joy in this hobby. I don't have to understand. There's room for all of us.

I know if I tried to use a needle instead of a piercing tool, I'd have pierced fingers, LOL!

The most common thing I wonder about this hobby is whether people with other hobbies analyze theirs quite as much as we do! It's curious ~ we all sit back and ponder our habits, our styles, our purchases, our o-b-s-e-s-s-i-o-n! Hmm. Maybe papercrafters are just the intellectual sort, eh?!

You are not alone ~ the mysteries of it all add to the fascination, I think! Most importantly ~ create, create, create!

I'll go with "intellectual", Nancy. Sounds a lot better than "obsessed." Ha.

You are both right, I do spend a lot of time thinking about all these things. What is so interesting to me is finding out what is so important to other people. Like you said, Grandmamichelf, sewing on cards for example.

I read about it, saw some cards, and thought, oh that looks neat. I have sewed clothes and other things for years, but never sewed on paper.

I decided I needed a "special" machine for paper, so I wouldn't have to bother with using my big Singer in the other room. Bought a little Janome Sew-Mini. Guess what - I used it probably two times to sew on cards and there it sat. Turns out I didn't like sewing on cards at all.

Thankfully, I gave the little machine to my dd who wanted to learn to sew, so it wasn't a total waste.

I do know I love coming here and reading everyone's thoughts and ideas. I don't go to message boards about any other hobbies, so I don't know if hobbyists are all like this, or just us "paper-nuts."

Anyway, it makes for a lot of fun and enjoyment. And at least we are using our brains. We could be sitting at a casino someplace plugging in quarters! and end up with nothing

Ain't it the truth, Bugga!!!

And I have to tell you we had the same experience with sewing on cards! Exactly! Except my daughter hasn't decided to learn to sew yet. But the Janome mini is there when she needs it!

I've never been great with sewing -- I get by. But I love the look of sewing on cards. Some people do it so beautifully!

Well, I wonder how I can have so much stuff and still really need more.
I do need
Sentiments
dies
buttons in SU colors
Really, sometimes I'm stuck because I don't have nesties (only one set) to mat or cut out a shape with. Some day my fairy godmother will wave her wand and send me these things!

I often wonder why people ruin a perfectly good card by sticking a giant ribbon & bow on it.

But then again, I'm sure people look at my cards and say "this would be a terrific card if only she used a giant ribbon with a bow."

And then I laugh and stop thinking about this stuff.

Speaking of casinos...yes, people with other interests message board a lot and chew everything there is to know about every aspect of the interest...just like we do here....and other SB/stamping boards.

I belonged to a Las Vegas group and it is AMAZING how similar they are to SB/stamping groups. We analyzed everything to death.

Things that make me go ...hmmmm...
* Sewing on paper (although I've see some gorgeous LOs w/sewing...I'm not going to get out a sewing machine.
* Office supplies....I have the wide staples with zebra/tiger, etc on them, but I don't understand plain staples...could be my age....they just don't seem fun since I've used so many of them on NOT fun things.
* Buying anything full price or paying more than $5 for shipping. It's not on my radar.

You were looking in my window yesterday weren't you! LOL I did exactly this! Then I took a picture, was fixin' to upload it and said 'huh?'. I don't know what I was thinking. It totally ruined the card LOL

I really like the look of sewing on cards, but I'm too lazy to schlepp up my machine from the floor to do it.

The thing that I wonder the most about is how do you all keep up with what's out there, who's selling it and how does it work. I don't click on the banner ads at all. I feel like if I do, I'll get sucked into a black hole of financial destitude LOL

I love the look of sewing on cards. So I bought a machine. And since my "real" machine had bit the dust in a move, I got a nice electronic Brother machine to sew on my cards. And the only thing I've ever sewed with it is material. Hems, seams, and Halloween costumes this year, LOL~ It hasn't seen paper yet. I think I like the look of sewing on OTHER people's cards, not mine.

I love ribbons and bows on cards. It hides many imperfections.

If you think people with other hobbies don't obsess about them, just take a gander at the Disney boards or cruise boards. I had no earthly idea that a vacation took SO, SO, SO much planning. All these years, I've been winging it and having a great time.

I've been using tons of stuff in a scrapbook the last month or so and I'm loving it. I'm actually putting all those "good" embellishments to good use.

LOL! So very true...and what a wonderful perspective!

And yes, people with other hobbies are as obsessive and analytical as we are. My DH likes to cook and does triathlon (three sports in one to obsess about). "Obsessed" doesn't even begin to describe how foodies and triathletes behave.

See. We're normal.

Oh that is so true. I'm a cyclist, and frequent a cycling discussion board. These people obsess about every little thing - many can't even buy a bicycle without going to the board and asking for the opinions of complete strangers. They obsess about what they wear, what other people wear, how much someone spent on his or her gear. Many obsess on how to get their bicycles as light as possible, and how to get an extra mph or two through things like wheels and shoe covers.

And just think - triathletes are worse because there are three sports to obsess about.

And I can tell you that stamping is much cheaper. No one needs to know how much I spent on my bicycle (although I get asked that question a lot, which is strange because no one asks golfers how much they spend on greens fees and clubs).

ok Sue i had to look at your gallery to see what you do with your cards. You almost never use any type of ribbon I think I scrolled down and saw some twine, maybe you were experimenting that day. Lovely gallery.

I had to smile at this one -- my husband has gotten into cycling again big time in the last couple of years. Thankfully, I don't think he has found these boards!!! He does spend a LOT of time at the bike shop though.

The first time he bought a pricey bike, he walked in the door and said, "You can buy a bunch of stamping stuff if you want!" LOL!!

P.S., Sue: He did buy me a really nice Gary Fisher last year and I'm hoping this year will be my turn to have some time to add cycling to my list of hobbies! I will not obsess, I will not obsess. . . . ;^)

Love the comments on "bow" versus "no bow" LOL! I'm up for trying sewing on my cards. The things that make me wonder are why are the Tilda or Magnolia stamps or whatever they're called so popular . I just don't get the angel with no face thing and would have the desire to complete the stamp LOL! Don't get me wrong, I'm not offended by them and I don't hate them. I just don't see why there is such a craze over them. They are cute but not that cute LOL! I don't understand the ones with the kids with the heads way too big for the body either.

That's what's great about this. There is room for everyone to be creative in their own way. Cards that I might think are ugly are the most beautiful wonder in someone else's estimation. I just get nervous thinking that I might not have any taste when I don't feel the love for a particular theme that might be popular at the moment. LOL!

I just had this conversation with someone a little while ago. I am the kind of traveler that only books a flight and a hotel. More often than not, I forget to print any of it and take it with me on the day I leave. I grab a taxi, and ask the locals at the hotel where they take their out of town company for sightseeing and eating. I try very hard not to get trapped into a "schedule" while on vacation (this city on this day, this venue on that day, this time at a certain restaurant, etc.)

I guess I am the "wing it" type of vacationer.

That's because ribbon thwarts me. I find twine much easier to manuever into place. And thanks for the complement.

Go ahead and obsess. Cycling makes me feel like a kid all over again, plus keeps me in shape mentally and physically. I get cranky when I don't get enough saddle time.

Nice! A man who understands. I've seen discussions on the cycling boards about men who keeping buying the same color bike so the wife never notices the new purchase.

"Hobby" is just a socially-acceptable word for "obsession," right? Haha!
I think most people obsess over their hobbies in one way or another.

For me, nothing is ever "enough." I never make a "cute" enough card, or a "realistic" enough clay miniature, etc.
And I certainly never have enough supplies, for ANY of my hobbies!

I like the word "passionate" instead of "obsessed." Makes me seem less...um...disturbed...


I often wonder if I'm in love with the idea of papercrafting and the purchasing of papercrafting supplies, rather than the actual crafting part.

It's not that I don't like making cards and projects...but it seems I spend more time searching blogs and the gallery here and browsing websites than I do working. *sigh*

What I don't understand, (but I know a lot of people love), is the House Mouse stamps. I know a lot of people think they are really cute, but if you have ever had a mouse in your house..... nope, those stamps are NOT cute to me. I can see how cute the designs are, but those mice just look too real.

Ya'll are cracking me up.

I'm just as passionate (I like that word better) about some reality TV shows (Survivor, Amazing Race, Big Brother, etc) and reading as I am about papercrafting.

I also have stamping envy and scrapbooking envy. Everyone seems to do things so much better than I do but that's my own critical eye getting in the way. I don't much care for the faceless people stamps, but I do like to look at the cards people make with them. I'm also not really into tying bows but I do use ribbon on cards. I'm lucky I can tie my shoes....ha ha!

LOL!! On my blog profile, I have "I am a passionate cardmaker......"

I once came across someone's Blog who said exactly that - that she was in love with the idea of papercrafting and loves buying supplies and looking at her stash- and that she spent a lot of time thinking about cards, but somehow didn't get around to making them so much. It was refreshingly honest!

I once came across someone's Blog who said exactly that - that she was in love with the idea of papercrafting and loves buying supplies and looking at her stash- and that she spent a lot of time thinking about cards, but somehow didn't get around to making them so much. It was refreshingly honest!
Before I learned how to actually make a card with my tools and supplies, I told my husband my hobby was collecting supplies for crafts I didn't have time for.

I really like them, Annie, but then I had little pet mice when I was a child and have always thought mice were cute. Mine were very tame and would even sit on my shoulder.

Lots of people don't like mice, however, and some people have almost a phobia about them. All those cartoons of women jumping up on chairs and shrieking about a mouse come from someplace!

I sent a House Mouse card to a friend and had no idea she was almost phobic about mice. She thanked me nicely for the card and then went on to explain how she really felt about mice. Eek! I was so sorry, and of course quickly took her off my "House Mouse" list.
