Default You know you're addicted when...

I've seen lots of quick wit on SCS - how would you complete this sentence? Let's give everyone a good laugh today!

I agree..we all need a laugh today. I hate it when it gets ugly around here.

You know you're addicted when you tell your DH to CAREFULLY remove that bottlecap from his beer because you can use it later!

you know you're addicted when you look at every piece of garbage and contemplate the craftability of it.

I now have a stock pile of altoid tins, yogurt containers, misc. plastic tubs, etc... I've even asked a couple friends to save their baby formula cans for me.

You find a piece of string on the floor and rush to your craft room because you know exactly what to use it for.

You've become a compulsive hoarder! You know, bits of ribbon, scraps of pretty paper, misc. buttons, pennies from the sidewalk, empty soup/fruit cans, pretty cancelled stamps...

Lately, my apartment looks like God picked up AC Moore, shook it up, and dumped it into my living room!

Your dream craft room has a hard floor and a wheeled office chair so you don't even have to stand up when stamping.

You know you're addicted when everything around you revolves around your ink colors - like my boys have some Christmas pajamas that look good next to each other because one is garden green and the other is real red.

Default You Know You're Addicted When . . .

Here's a list a customer of mine created all on her own:

Your're stamping whie your breakfast is burning . . .

You just need to go to the store to buy another card making book . . .

You go to all of the stamp parties . . .

You wake up in the night with an idea . . . .

You look at something and turn it into a card . . . .

You just can't go to bed until you do just one more card , , ,

You answer your child an hour later "just a minute' . . .

This customer commented to me when she placed her last order that she realized that every other check in her checkbook was made out to me. She and her friend are wondering what they ever did with their money before they met me and learned about SU. Kind of a cool compliment don't you think?

Brenda
who is waiting on the printer to finish printing a couple of forms, so she can get her bookwork caught up to date. Would rather be stamping . . . .

...when you really should stop being a demo because life is too complicated right now to make any real sales, but you can't because you NEED to have access to the SU site, Stampin' Success mag and all of the new inspiration sheets.


... when you are your own best customer


... when you consider not having a family vacation so that you can go to convention instead.

... when your change of vacation plans are overridden by the family and so you try to convince them that Salt Lake City would really be fun for everyone and while mommy is stamping they can go all sorts of fun places without them--also vetoed by the fam.

when your hubby comes home from work, steaming angry, because one of his buddies at work was harassing him because he had glitter on his uniform shirt. (Serves him right ... I warned him NOT to hang his uniforms in the my craft room!!!) (Don't want them in my closet either -- the chemicals that the uniform company uses are not friendly to my nose!)

Hey, he married a crafter ... a day without glitter is like a day without sunshine!!

You know your addicted when:
You start taking pictures to go with the stamp sets you have so you can make a scrapbook page..LOL.
You have to buy all the ingredients to a certain card that you saw on the gallery so you can make that card.
People that know you can tell when you have been stamping by the glitter all over your face and your clothes.
When you can't get away from this place all day long..I LOVE it here.

OH!! And you know you're addicted when you plan your meals in such a way as to minimize clean up and preparation and maximize stamping time!!!!!
