My handcarved stamp collection grows and grows...

I realy love to carve stamps out of gum.
For my B'day I got this real nice carving set from Abig

These I made yesterday night when I was watching Lewis on TV.
And this is my big stash now... Not all are in because I gave away some...
But these are in my little suitcase...

I am hosting a handcarved stamp swap on Dutch swappers on swapbot.cpm
It's only a national swap...sorry...
A great tutorial about how to carve stamps you can find HERE

tutorial owl wedding wreath

I made this wreath for my sisters wedding.
The owls are made with the tutorial from B.D. Designs
I created two owls in marriage style using my husbands old colbert and my old white blouse for the wedding dress...
Than I used flower stapels to attach the owls on the straw-wreath.
I used lavender to this wreath and lavender colored ribbon. I hot glued the printed text that I first cut out and made some sherpes from... The rounding edges will do when you take a pencil and roll it up..
I used a laserprinter and photo paper. Its nice and glacy...stiff enough for this job...
Put some flowers on with hotglue and... Finished!
It took me about a little hour to make this.

In the past weeks a lot have happened

We celebrated that with friend and family on the 1 th of october! It was an anwesome party... The weather was GREAT! It looked like summer...
