I just happened upon your blog and I am so glad I did. I have just begun making my own stamps...actually, rewind.. I want to begin to make my own stamps. I have all the materials and tools and I usually just sit and stare at them for fear that I will screw it up. I am a big fan of using lots of words in my collages...I think you have inspired me to make a simple "word" message on my first stamp. thanks. I'll be back. I like you.


I like your motto and stamp!

God Bless You and Yours!!!


great motto and love your "font" :)


Okay, ready to plunge in to stamp carving...I think! Do you recommend a particular brand/type of carving tools? Thanks!

Great motto!! I love your stamp, very pretty.


Lucky me to have found your blog.....I love finding creative artist's blogs ...can't find alot of time for my own artwork so reading cool blogs like yours is inspirational.

The mini art blox are delightful and I'd love to try stamping/printmaking with my class at school ....only I think I'll use styrofoam from a meat tray ...easier to carve for kids.

Thanks for the inspiration!
