This post will have more 'chat' then normal… LOL, What's normal? can anyone really define the word normal?
On September 11, just 12 days ago, my friend Erika started my first blog for me, which I called… Stampin' & Scrappin' at the Shore. I really loved the name. I live at the beautiful New Jersey Shore, hence that is where I stamp & scrap!
Now mind you, for over 6 months I had been trying to come up with a cool & catchy name, 'just in case' I decided to start a blog! I've never been called Speedy Gonzales… LOL Well, it wasn't a cool name, but it was quite fitting and I loved it:)
Of course I was worried once I started that blog, I would come up with 'the' COOL & CATCHY name. And don't you know it, I did. I can't even remember where I was on the net but I was staring at a screen of words and all of a sudden I put two words together accidentally, that were not together in any article I was reading! It was Stampin' and Press. Well, a light bulb went ON!!! OMG!
Okay I'm sure you see what I see but…
Stampin': I'm a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and when I stamp, I stampin 'the ink pad' …right:) And I need directions for everything and I still get lost!!! LOL
Press: You 'press' after you stampin "the ink pad" and I found out quickly with my blog I love to chat in my posts, hence Press Release…
Both my passions are in this name, quite fitting for me:) So… Welcome to Stampin' Press!
All of my posts will have a creative project in them. Some journaling will be sparse, others more descriptive and some with a short but entertaining story. (grin)
The move here was extremely s-m-o-o-t-h… especially since Erika did 'it' again!!! AND… she's still talking to me:) She will be teaching me the how to's also. She's a great teacher, but for now, she did the 'leg work'. Isn't she wonderful, as you can see she's is very talented. And check out my Sideburns… more to come too! Yes, I know you call them sidebars, but I call them sideburns:) I wrote up a list of what I want on my left sideburn and what I want on my right side burn… They may be rather l-o-n-g, but that's okay since my 'face' posts will be too.. And long is slenderizing, so that works!! tee hee THANK YOU So Much E!
Since the change:
I've been typing feverishly since we changed my Blog name today to retype my posts, here. Since I was in the trial period on typepad, was paying monthly and had only posted 7 times since day one, it was a great time to do it.
But no worries, I'm here to stay! I love my new home! I can't wait to have an Open House, and Celebrate my Blog Birthdays… and and and and! OMG, the ideas are filling my head… it's so exciting! Does anyone have a brown paper bag… (ha ha ha)
Okay, go take a nap, I think you need one after this post!
