Sisterhood of the Blogging Stampers.

Hi Everyone! I'm Jan & I'm totally new to stamping & blogging (as you can probably already tell!) I'm from Southeast Kansas, I'm a Cosmetologist & own my own shop for almost 10 years! I am an avid supporter of our Military. I have sent 44 packages to our troops in Iraq & Afghanistan since March. I also just did my 2nd Annual Cuts for Vets, where I give Veterans $5 haircuts with proof of military service.

I'm looking forward to making a lot of new friends in our Sisterhood & on SPC! Have a great day!

S.H.I.T Day - So Happy It's Thursday!

Good evening! My friend, Jean & I went to our SU Demonstrater's house to make Christmas things. We covered a wood frame with Designer paper, made a couple of Christmas ornaments & a little box that holds two mint patties. I think I am going to use the scallop punch & 1 1/4" round punch to cover the mint patties . I thought I would send them to the troops for Christmas. That is another thing I do, I have sent 44 packages to our troops in Iraq & Afghanistan since March. I want to post some of my cards on here, but not quite sure how to do it! Hopefully, one of my "sistas" in the sisterhood can help me. Anyway, gonna go for now! Bye!

It's me again & I'm still trying to figure this all out! I don't have any of my cards saved on my computer except for the ones I put on SCS....But, that gives me a great excuse to get my "creative juices" flowing!!!

I really enjoy looking at other stamper's work & there are some really beautiful cards on there. I am anxious to try the shaving cream & the masking tape cards. I don't know much about embossing, but I'm willing to give it a try!!! I am totally amazed at how many different ways you can use the stamp set "Lovely As A Tree"!!!! My SU Demonstrator showed us a lot of ways to make the Christmas Cards using that stamp set!

Here Goes!!!

Hi! My name is Jan & I totally do not know what I'm doing here, so please be patient!! I just recently joined SCS & have only been stamping for a few months. I have a friend that is into stamping & she let me create something one day & I was hooked! I own a barber shop & on my feet most of the day, so it is nice to have something to do after I get home. It's therapy to me, when I start something, I don't stop until it's matter how many mistakes I make or how long it takes me. I've been brave enough to post some of my work. I hope you enjoy looking at it.

I live in Southeast Kansas & like I said I cut hair in a barber shop. I've worked there for 16 years, but have owned it 10 years this coming May. I enjoy cutting hair, cut sometimes I need something to just kind of unwind & relax. I really enjoy stamping & seeing what I can come up with.

Like I said I'm not sure what I'm supposed to do, so maybe this post will get me started.
