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…


I also heared that my job is stopping because of recession.
So I have to look for another job…
Shame because I loved my job as a youth coach!
