First Blog

Hi ladies,
I am a born again Christian who loves to stamp. I consider stamping one of the blessings in my life. It has been a foundation of some wonderful friendships, and it has been a tool for opportunities in ministering to others. I have named my blog saved stamper because as much as I love stamping, I want to make sure I give the Lord first place, and let others know He is my first love. I have many other blessings in my life, including my wonderful husband. and 5 darling children.

A little bit about me, I am in my mid-thirties, I homeschool my children, and I am a Pastor's wife. I was transplanted from the south, Gulf Coast area, to the chilling north when my husband and I got married 13 1/2 years ago. We lived in the Chicago area for the first eight years while my husband was a youth pastor. We then moved further north into Wisconsin where my husband started an independent Baptist church. I had never even heard of rubber stamping until our move to Wisconsin. Some of ladies who began attending our church were rubberstampers. I went to one lady's home for a ladies fellowship and we rubberstamped. I thought this is nice, but I'll never get into it. WRONG! After a few more times I was hooked. My husband encourages me in my hobby and is in the process of finishing off a room in the basement for my office. He's a little over 50% done. I'm hoping by Christmas it will be done.

The majority of my stamps are from Stampin Up!. I absolutely love their stamps, so much so that I became a hobby demo just for the discount. I plan to post some of projects here to share what I've been working on with you. These projects will be a variety of cards, scrapbook pages, and gift ideas.

Hi Shannon! I'm on the yahoo group with you and got your link there. I also started a stampin' blog yesterday ( http://marciesstampinup.blogspot.com) and I haven't even stamped yet! LOL. I'm also a born again Christian (25 years), homeschooled my kids (all grown now) and put the Lord first in my life (well that's my heart's desire). I'm adding your blogspot to my favourite sites on my blog. See you in cyberspace :)

Hi....I am on the Yahoo group with you. I have been stamping for about 5 years since moving to Alabama. I grew up in NY State. I am also a born again Christian and have been married for almost 3 years. I am in my early 40's. I have a stepson who is autistic. I started a blog and have not wrote in it in ages. Maybe soon I will start again.
