Stamping for your Mental Health

Stamping and crafting is good for you! Stamping can improve your health (stress levels go down:) and increase your sense of well being. When I first began stamping, I was in a very high stress job. I found that if I came home from work and stamped for about 45 minutes, I was in a much better state of mind to do dinner and spend the rest of my evening finishing up household chores and hangin' out with my family. At that point I was only making cards, and they are little works of art that can be completed in just minutes. I felt so good about what I was making. I admit I sometimes stamped a bit hard--there was a tremendous release of frustration!

How about you? Don't you just feel good when you have made a card? And those scrap pages not only bring a great sense of satisfaction in the pages we create, we usually take a little trip down memory lane during the process. We scrapbook important events in our life as well as special people. Just concentrating on the photos as we incorporate them into our layout brings a sense of warmth, connection to our loved ones, and serenity.

So stamp for your mental health and improve your life! Click here to order supplies for your serenity, or call me at 210-492-3218 and I'll help you get started in the wonderful world of sweet stamping! Just think about what a wonderful world it would be if everyone stamped:)
