What’s Your Hobby?

Do you have a favorite hobby?

I do. Rubber stamping! I love to hang out with my girl friends and use rubber stamps, tools, supplies, and miscellaneous papers and trinkets to create greeting cards. Rubber stamping!

I don’t feel guilty for pursuing this crafty hobby. One reason is that I don’t spend tons of money on supplies. In rubber stamping, a little goes a long way. One of my stamping buddies and I just recently finished up a roll of foam tape (3-D effect) that we had been collectively using for at least 10 years.

Another reason I allow myself to indulge? The cards. I distribute my handcrafted cards through many venues – a set becomes a gift for my sister, a dozen goes into an auction basket, birthdays are celebrated, thanks are sent, holidays are enjoyed, and encouragement is mailed. I even create cards for my husband to use at work. I am – gasp – a supplier. In a good way.

As I work on updating my blog and web site, I thought it would be fun to have a giveaway and celebrate hobbies.

Here’s what you need to do:

1. Sign up to follow this blog. You knew there was a catch, right?

2. Comment above. Tell me that you’ve followed. View the slideshow of cards and let me know which card you like best and why. I’d love to hear about your favorite hobby!

That’s it.

On Friday, October 21, I will randomly choose 3 followers* to receive a packet of 5 handcrafted cards, mailed to your home. How fun is that?

*Sorry, only U.S. addresses for the free cards. But anyone around the world is welcome to follow this blog!

 

Thank you for visiting. Have a great day!

I live with my husband and crazy kitty. Much of my time is spent writing, reading, and playing with the grands. You can usually find me sipping tea or coffee, nibbling on dark chocolate, and contemplating what to plant next in the garden. If not those pursuits, then I am probably trying to figure out how to cook and live in an RV, creating cards with rubber stamps, walking, hiking, or out snapping photos with my camera.

  1. Hey Stamping Buddy! Well, I love all those cards (and already have many in my own collection), but the gnome one is the best! Mine is in his place of honor on the windowsill. Great idea to have a giveaway.

  2. Happy to follow you anywhere! Love the giveaway–all of your cards are always awesome! It’s nearly impossible to choose a favorite, but I decided on the bicycle card because it just makes me feel happy and carefree! 🙂

  3. My favourite hobbies are reading & tapestry work. I was also taught to cross-stitch but it’s so fiddly I find that less enjoyable! 😛
