Smile Hi! 'Nother newby here!

Hi, my name is Christy (you probably figured that out though) and I just joined SCS after lurking for a couple of months after my demo told me about the site.

K, so, I'm living in North Carolina but I'm from Texas...my husband is in the military and is deployed right now. So while he's been gone I've been making lots of cards for him and expanding my stamp collection at an astonishing rate...DH isn't here to tell me not to spend money on stamps!! (My mom says I'm doing "retail therapy" until he gets home in June....) I started stamping about a year and a half ago and I've managed to amass an embarrassing cache of supplies, not to mention dragging my mom and sister-in-law into it.

I'm looking forward to getting to know you SCSers better as I've had loads of fun looking at your creations and reading your posts. (Always nice to have something to do when it gets slow at work!) You guys rock!!

K, so, might be a silly question but what's a KUG?

Yeah, had a slight name change.....I'm having a case of the can't-help-its today, I couldn't think of a fun screen name so I'm just plain ol' me. With an S. now.

Hi,
I'm new here so I'm not sure whats what yet. I live in Vermont.I'm retired and have recently started making cards.I made a scrapbook for my daughter for Christmas of her daughter and had so much fun doing it that I decided I wanted to keep crafting with paper so I picked cards, I love collecting rubber stamps and paper. I have quite a few stamp sets but I believe there is always room for more...one can never have enough stamping supplies.
I love to look at cards that other people make. It always amazes me how talented people are. Well guess that about it.

Actually my DH hasn't said anything about my shopping activities while he's been gone, but that will probably change when he gets back....oh well, worry about that when he gets here! For now, he's just happy to be getting so much mail--he said he gets more mail than anyone else in his squadron. I must be doing a good job.

Hi from one newby to another, luv2stamp52! You sound like a lady after my own heart...I've just about outgrown the cabinet I got to hold all my stamps and I just got it about 8 months ago! She with the most supplies wins....something, right?

Alas, I fear I must get back to work...gotta do something to support my stamping habit, even if my bosses are out of the office today and can't see that I'm not working!

HI Christy! I am also in NC but lived in TX for a little while (not long enough, loved it out there!). What part of NC are you in? I am in the Piedmont area. I can understand about the "retail therapy", my hubby used to travel a lot! So enjoy and welcome!

I live in Goldsboro, about an hour southest of Raleigh, 90 miles or so from Wilmington. It's a pretty small town (only one Wal-Mart! And we don't have a Starbucks yet, although they're building one...) so not much to shop in here, so I've been doing a lot of online retail therapy.

Speaking of which, I just got a box of stamps from Whipper Snapper--I saw some cards on here with really cute dog stamps and I couldn't resist! So when my husband comes back, it's all your fault, right? I can't remember whose cards it was I saw, but they were really cute...and now I have to go order some more from them because I want to give some to my mom and SIL!

I think this website and its inhabitants are a bad influence on me....I LOVE IT!! Mwahahahahahaaaaa!
