Hi! I am Karen Decker, a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator. I joined Stampin’ Up! in 2009 and love learning new crafting techniques and then sharing what I have learned with others. I live in Castle Rock, Colorado with my husband, Paul, and a long-haired dachshund named Ruger. We’ve lived in Alaska, Arizona, and Washington State but Colorado is where we both grew up and we are glad to be settled back here in our beloved Colorado!
This is my little SAL PAL. I tried for over a year to find the right blog name and everything I thought of was already in use or not a name that was catchy. Stampalosopher seems hard to say at first but as you use it, it just rolls off your tongue – really!
Stamp * A * Losopher was how I envisioned it at first with the jingle “Stamp A Lot with the Stampalosopher” adding spaces and capitals so you could remember how to spell it. Then I wondered about abbreviating it to SAL, but was concerned what SAL might mean and didn’t want a nasty acronym. LOL When I googled it, I found that in Spanish it is defined as: “salt; wit; charm”. That was sooo perfect and in the Bible Jesus tells us to be salt and light in our world so it ties into the faith side of my life. I went looking for a graphics designer to draw up the image. After three attempts I found Toons4Biz with several images I could purchase. The jingle grew to “Bringing a pinch of creativity to spice up your crafting world” and Toons4Biz ran with it and designed my blog header. Starting January 2016 you will be able to acquire grains of salt for online purchases and earn free merchandise, so stay tuned as we grow together to make this journey fun!
This is the watermark I use. Look for me in Pinterest!
So how many SAL acronyms can we make?
Stamp A Lot
Smile A Little
Share A Love
Send A Letter
Sigh A Loud ( I do that a lot when stamping)
Sing A Long
Snag A Layout
Soar A Loft
Smile And Laugh
Can you think of more? Send them in a comment and I will add them.
Thanks for stopping by for a history lesson!
