Think outside the box

That's exactly what I did. Because this 'stamp' absolutely doesn't fit in my stamp-box. It messures about 10 x 20cm.

I want to go and look for a frame and hang it on my wall :).


From drawing to cutting to printing.









Pimp your diary

What do you need:

* a diary...
* your gouch and knife
* a simple eraser
* drawing of your favorite image, in my case a cat :)

And then you just do your thing:
















And... ready for schoolyear '14-'15! (thank god we still have another two weeks of holidays..)



What's in a name?

Well, a lot of stamps, in this case ;).

Over the past few weeks I made four namestamps. Three of them were custom orders for three sweet children :D.

Fleur got a flowerstamp (as her name is the French word for 'flower'). Her little sister got a cupcakestamp, because she's as sweet as a cupcake herself :). Their brother is a cool dude... he plays baseball, so I made him a basebatstamp.












And then the fourth stamp. A special one. My sister-in-law could hardly wait for the big event. Last friday she got married to my brother and could finaly use his last name :). So as a present I made her a stamp with her new last name. To use on all her out-going familypost. Glad she liked it.











 Bettie does the final check. Looks good enough, she says.




E is for Duck?

In our circle of friends there's a lot of talking about ducks lately. Especially ducklings, very young ones. People find them, abandoned by there parents. Ahhh... and ofcourse these small cute cuties need to be taken care of. One of the two orphans I know about has already been eaten by a big bird.. The second one is living a happy life as we speak, following his foster parents where ever they go. Very funny.
I say 'yes' to saving small ducklings. They are too cute.

So here's the 'e' for 'eend', the Dutch duck.

Coffee!

Now I know I've always said I'm a tea-lover. Especially redbush tea. And that's very true. In the evening. In the morning I like to drink a cup of coffee. At work, we only have 'instant'-coffee. It's nothing like the real stuff but it is better than no coffee at all.

I like my coffee black. The black gold. When I started drinking it, I used both milk and sugar. Then I left home as a student, living in a studenthouse, depending on just so many guilders a month. One morning the sugar was finished. So I used my coffee with just (coffee)milk. After a while I decided I didn't need the coffeemilk either. Was also cheaper... being a student, you know. So that's how I started to drink my coffee black. How do you drink yours?

Just to say...

Hello. This stamp is just to say... whatever you want to whoever you want. I just want to say: I've been out of the stampcarving 'business' for two months, so to give myself an easy start I'm back in my comfortzone; cats. But that sentence is a little bit too long to fit in the stamp. So I just put it here. And we will see what this stamp will be used for in future.







Tea? Yes! Redbush tea, ofcourse.



Snake



We had a snake in our garden.
It wasn't a big one, but walking to the car in the dark I saw something crawling on the floor and I decided to jump over it.
Good decision.

So, a new idea for an alphabet-stamp was born. That's how it goes.



size 3 x 4 centimeters





And again, a small piece of art where there was nothing, a couple of hours ago.

Everybody can do it :-)
