Default WI newbie saying hello

Hi to all; I just found this site a few days ago, thanks to a person at work (but of course, I waited until I got home to check it out!) and I'm in awe!!
Not only by your creativity, but also by the seemingly free flowing conversations that seem to go on.
I've been stamping/scrapping for about 2 years, but am still quite the novice since I don't get to devote alot of time to it. My oh-so-adorable daughter (6 1/2) thinks that whatever I do, she should do. My first instinct was to buy her all of her own stuff, but she thinks mine is better and still wants to get her fingers into everything I do! Don't get me wrong, she's very creative and a blast to hang out with, but it's just not as.... well, not as productive. My 8 1/2 yr old son doesn't really care about this so he leaves me alone. My husband and friends (most of whom are stampers/scrappers) are VERY supportive of my new "habit", and I've met people that I consider to be friends now because of it.
Can't wait to start getting to "know" people here at SCS.
Katie

Laundry "caught up"? You mean that's really supposed to have happened at some point? Wow. You people ARE talented!
Hey - how can I find out how to do some of those techniques? Waxed paper resist? Never heard of it.

Hello & welcome! There are a bunch of us from Wisconsin here. This place is so wonderful! You will love it and become addicted! I even peek in while I'm at work. I'm just worried I might miss something! There are so many talented people, and they are so helpful.

Default possibly moving to Wis.

hey ladies,

I am currently living in Illinois but may be moving to Wis in June. I see some of you are from the cheese state but I don't know how close that is in relation to the small town I may be moving to...

it's called Union Grove, about 10-15 minutes from route 50 Kenosha...

is that anywhere near any of you? If I move I will leave all of my customers (I'm a SUP! demo) and friends and family...would love to meet some fellow addicts...

thanks,
Dana

Welcome Katie!

I'm another Wisconsinite here--by way of TX and CA. I'm in the town of Middleton (with a Verona address).

You'll be amazed how much time you end up spending on this site. It's so fun and full of wonderful information. Welcome!

Welcome Katie, I am a Katie from Oregon, WI (we are practically neighbors).

I have two children about the same age as you, my son will be 9 in May and my daughter just turned 7. She is very much into my stamping (and trying to scrap), he is liking the idea of it more and more.

This site is so very addicting, and well, the laundry is also piling up around here, (the one housedhold chore I hate to do.)

I just wanted to add that to find out about the techniques, you could click the link on the top of the page that says resources, then if I remember correctly there will be links to the different tutorials on how to do the technique.

Welcome ( I go to Madison to shop weekly, maybe we have even run into to each other and never knew it.)

Katie G

Thumbs up Wisconsin too...................

This is my first post and this is the perfect place to post it!!!!!!!

I have been on this site for almost a year and sure love it. It is addicting. There are so many wonderful people and everyone is so friendly.

LaurieR--I think I am in Stampers 10 with you. I am "peeking" from work right now too

Dana-do--I live in Waukesha, really the Wales area, but teach in Waterford which is about 15 miles from Union Grove. Keep us posted about your move.

Kar--where is Curtiss?

Thanks Loads to everyone, especially those in Wisconsin. You really make this "hobby" great.

Is there ever enough time for stampin/scrapping?

Between working FT & kids and life in general, I feel cheated!! I would love it if my hubby could take the kids for a weekend and I could spread out my stuff, work on it for awhile, and then -OMG!!- LEAVE IT OUT! AAAHHHH...
what a concept!

So, do any people from WI ever get together- or is this the manner in which "getting to know you" exists? My friend Cindy is a SU demonstrator and her lovable little girl is close in age to mine, but they live in Columbus and are VERY busy. I think it would be a blast to have a mom/daughter thing sometime....
