“Sisterhood of the Blogging Stampers-8”

With a plea that began on Splitcoaststampers, a new phenomenon has begun called the "SisterhoodSbs8badgepink_7   of the Blogging Stampers."  It began as a way for Alana to find a stamping and blogging buddy, and has grown leaps and bounds since–and now eight groups later, I’m part of the Sisterhood Group 8!  We want every one to be part of a sisterhood. If you didn’t make it into the original group, you can still join! Each group consists of about 20 blogging stampers.

This is what Alana has written on the Sisterhood’s home blog:  "Our mission is to create a sisterhood where we can share our triumphs and craft disasters. Somewhere we can go to get inspired by a friend. Somewhere we can go to unwind and get to know each other better. Many of us don’t have friends or family close by that love to stamp, and we’re looking to share our creations with someone who will appreciate them. We want to feel a little less alone and anonymous in the grand world of stamping."  If YOU’D like to be part of a sisterhood, check out this link; we’d love to have you join!: 


I’ve had the privilege of being named the administrator for this group, and this is my intro post.  I’ve been blogging "consistently" since the first part of August, so I’m fairly new at this.  I’ve been stamping for about a year and a half (just since I signed up to be a Stampin’ Up!® demo!).  I originally became a stamper and demo as a diversion–I love being creative, and have had a chronic headache for over three years.  I  needed something to try to take my mind off the pain, and I love the diversity of stamping.  My youngest sister Nancy is my upline and mentor–she’s taught me just about all I know about stamping.

I’m 51, married to the love of my life, have four grown children – one daughter and three sons – and have two beautiful granddaughters!  I’m also the proud owner of a black cockapoo name "Buddy" and the owner of an abandoned and rescued by my dear brother-in-law gray tabby kitten named "Scruffy." I live in the western part of North Dakota in a small rural town of about 3300.

I love stamping and experimenting with various inks and colors.  I’d define my favorite style as vintage/shabby chic.

I look forward to getting to know all my "sisters" and visiting their blogs to check out their creations!  Be sure to check out our blogs (blogroll listed in left-hand column) regularly for inspiration and challenges! 

Glad to have you in the Sisterhood!
