About Me

Hi!  My name is Kim, and I love rubber stamping. My husband and I live in the Boise area, and we just survived the biggest snowfall in the 19 winters that we've lived here. We share our lives with two cats, 14-year-old Dusty and 4-year-old Pikachu.
     
   
    
I've been stamping for over a dozen years. I was in direct sales and a friend showed me a rubber stamp catalog that had stamps like "Bring a Friend, Get a Gift" -- but I saw all the cute cards and decided I needed to be a stamper!  It was perfect because I needed a quiet hobby to keep me occupied. My husband fell ill shortly after we got married, and I am his caregiver.
 
My favorite thing about stamping in particular is that I can feel like an artist without having the ability to draw. The best thing about paper crafting in general is the huge group of supportive and creative friends I've made. My life wouldn't be nearly as good without them. There are also plenty of ways for stampers to make a difference, donating cards to worthy causes or sending a card to cheer up someone who needs it. When I'm at a crop or a stamping party I get more talking done than stamping, but I always have a wonderful time.
   
I go by "StampingSpud" on Splitcoast Stampers. Here's a link to my gallery. Projects of mine have appeared in magazines, in museums, in stores, online, and on television.  See my crafting resume for details.
