It Started With Just One
A guest post by
Strolling through my feeds, I see the most adorable flower girl card and it begins again. I had to have that stamp. It also sparked adoration for the influencer and the company she was showcasing that day. Another amazing crafty friend made.
Once again I'm reminded, my stamping obsession and collection, as it sits now, was started by the need for just one stamp. My first stamp is long gone but the one that rekindled the fire years is still tucked safely away in a box. It resulted in a crazy expensive invite to coffee that weighed a ton because of all layer elements, but I was beaming when it was done, worth every penny, even though the receiver didn't respond.
Now I won't say I have the biggest collection. But, it's big enough I saved up to buy a multi draw tool chest to hold a bunch of it so it's easier to work with, but there are still boxes that I know will be full again soon. Luckily, I have room for a few more drawer units, sort of. I'm hoping I can get a bigger space someday or that my crafty supplies topple over and consume me happily, belching a large poof of glitter in satisfaction. Yes, the stash is a living breathing organism that assimilates everything in its path, but I am constantly preparing for the inevitable crafty apocalypse when it arises. Also, I have several projects I am attempting to work through, some more successfully than others, that have been sitting for months and years.
As you may have guessed, the card in question was posted by Marcia , The Frolicking Fairy, and the flower girl was from Picket Fence Studios, a beautiful simple card.
Now The Frolicking Fairy (and The Farting Gnome) name made me wonder, which one am I like? My answer: I think I am a Frolicking Farter, but I am a unicorn after all. If you need sprinkles, I'm your guy .
Which stamp was your gateway stamp? What kind of magical stamper are you? Feel free to chime in on the comments below, I'm curious.
