In a little less than four weeks, my beautiful niece Lily turns 13 and this Saturday, we’re sitting down to plan a little party for her and her friends. In doing so, I am reminded why I picked up stamping as a hobby and what it means to create one of a kind cards and items with thought and love behind each piece.
With each project I take on, the time I spend laughing, learning and bonding with my nieces, the closer we become. I feel like I am passing on knowledge, exchanging stories and creating new memories. My projects always individually reflect the uniqueness of the person and event. I see stamping as a hobby that brings people together. Stamping, from start to finish, often leaves a lasting impression well after the project reaches an end. I love that my joys are incorporated into a hobby that leaves a ripple effect and at the end of the day, I’m happiest knowing that something I did, passed along a smile.
So tell me, why do you love your hobby?
