The "Bugawumps" Baby Boom!

Well, believe it or not, Bugawumps is bursting
with even more great news!

Less than a year ago we were in the midst of last minute wedding preparations for these two, Kris and John, our daughter and now new son-in-law, and they too, are now expecting a "little Bugawump" as well.

Their little one is due in late July giving us all  time to adjust to a new life schedule with the twins before this one joins in the fun.

As parents and now grandparents-to-be, we feel as though we have "hit the jackpot"!  Great children with great spouses and now 3 little ones in less than 3 months.  Overwhelming at the very least!

We will still be around as our family grows and we glow with new babies and new ideas from those wonderful little beings, so continue to watch our site to see where we will be doing shows and what new stamps will becoming your way.

Like I said, traveling to shows this year will be difficult but not impossible, so we hope to sign up and attend whatever we can between births, celebrations, and all that comes in between so watch our "ROAD SHOWS" for the latest updates on shows and contact numbers.

If you feel the need to get "BUGGED" please shop online either here or on our website at and if you find all that too confusing, give me a call at 1.847.498.5188 or fax me at 1.847.498.5198 and I will get right back to you with an answer, words of encouragement, or whatever I can do to speed up your creative juices.

As we enter a new year, a new month and add three new dimensions to our lives we wish all of our customers as much joy, good health, and happiness possible.

Next week, we'll be making a new card so get your stamping supplies ready, set, and off we go!

New Arrivals!

Welcome 2012!

The times they will be a changing for Bugawumps Rubber Stamps and all of us who started this wonderful journey 14 1/2 years ago, Laura, Dick and Bella Boo (only 2 years into it) Jacobs.

Our son, Matthew and daughter-in-law, Abra, are expecting twin boys in late April leaving us all overwhelmed with anticipation.  It will be the first grandchildren on both sides!

Due to the arrival of these wonderful little "critters" as Grandpa Walt (Abra's father) calls them we will not be doing as many shows this year. 

With the flooding of our offices late last summer and the twins coming right in the midst of the show season we are hoping that our customers understand that we are running like crazy just to finish the reorganization of our offices along with planning for the arrival of these two wonderful little boys. 

We are still alive and kicking so please place your orders from either this sight or our website - , you can PHONE your order in at 847.498.5188 or FAX it in to 847.498.5198.

Our order processing and shipping will remain the same.  We normally ship within 48 hours so your stamping needs will still be met in the same speedy manner that we are known for! 

If Grandma Bugawumps doesn't answer the phone, leave a number - She will get back to you ASAP!  Many may not know this but she wears a "super woman cape" under her streetwear.

We are scheduling shows as time allows so keep watching our site and this blog for the most updated information.

SHOWS Scheduled so far: for more information contact the websites listed below:

March 10th & 11th  - ROCKFORD, IL -

April  28th & 29th - AKRON, OH -

We are still looking into some more summer and fall shows - so watch our website and this blog for the most updated information.

Add to all this excitement that Laura has just written an article about her Pan Pastel  demonstration that she does for all of you at the conventions. It will appear in the summer issue of  RubberStampMadness magazine - so grab it at your local hobby and craft store or order it for your Kindle, I-Pad, Nook or cranny.

In the meantime - wishing you and yours a creative 2012 with lots of new ideas and new adventures!

The future,
Grandma Laura Anne and Auntie Bella Boo
