The Long Story:
My name is Meghan and I’m here to stamp.
On my first day of pre-school at a quaint little preschool called Happy Times, I strolled on in with my kitty cat backpack and announced “My name is Meghan and I’m here to paint”. You see, my mom had a hard time convincing me that I would enjoy preschool. In fact, I was very much anti-Happy Times until my clever mama said to me “but Meghan, you get to paint at Happy Times!” She has always known the way to my heart.
A similar situation emerged almost 20 years later in 2003 when my mom invited me to a stamping party. Once again I was having no part of it, not the least bit interested. Mom neglected to mention the possibility of painting this time around, so I stayed home and off she went to make cards. Weeks later I was rummaging through my mother’s desk looking for a pen when I came across pages and pages of neatly stamped, crisp, clean Halloween images. Crayola-ahoy! I was on colouring cloud nine and haven’t looked back.
I’ve long since traded in my Crayolas for Copic Markers, Tombow brush pens, Zig Wink of Stellas, Twinkling H20s, water colour pencils and paints, and every other medium I can get my hands on. Colouring is still the most appealing part of stamping for me and I love it just as much as I did when I was 4.
Did you know that colouring can help adults combat stress? True story.
This is my cat, Milo. He’s pretty crafty too.
