The other day I was reading an article about strategies to charge up your memory in AARP Magazine, yes I am in the 50+ age bracket, and one of the tips was to live creatively. It goes on to state that “having an artistic hobby in both middle and old age made older adults in a Mayo study 73 percent less likely to experience cognitive decline.” Now that made me really take notice. For years I have touted the benefits of stamping to help reduce stress and now a study shows that having a creative hobby can help maintain brain function. Now another great reason to stamp!
I know many of you reading this have been stamping for a while but some may be new to this wonderful hobby. I am doing a series of articles and videos titled “Let’s Get Stamping” to help new stampers as they begin their stamping journey. Even though they are geared for beginners there may be a few tips sprinkled in that you didn’t know or may have forgotten. I want to reach every stamper no matter what your level because I really believe this is wonderful hobby that not only benefits you but all those who receive your creations and works of heart!
Each article will build off the one before so you can progress from novice to pro in no time! I started with a list of basic supplies every stamper should have in their arsenal. For the next one I go into different types of stamps and care with a video showing how to mount each one for use.
I hope you enjoy the series and as always thank you for visiting!
