Alchemy Journal.

Before my sister headed back to Alaska, we had a few "crafter-hour" sessions. This is when we made stamps all day, and then went back into work and stamped up some of our own creations. We had a lot of fun, but stayed up way too late.

This journal was one of my "crafter hour" creations. It uses four stamps that I think are pretty cool, some tags, and some baker's twine. I hear it's not crafty these days if there's no baker's twine.

We took the Hares to Akron.

Well, we did it. We got our first "STAMP SHOW!" under our belts. It was a lot of fun meeting customers and helping them search through the catalog to find just the right image. We found a perfect cactus, constellation stamp, a realistic pig, octopi, and a few other special requests. Still looking for that fried egg though - I know we have one.

Hop, Stamp, Sew

I found a little time to create some rubber stamped mixed media art -and I have my Etsy OWLS team to thank for the inspiration.   I am a member of the Etsy OWLS team, and the  challenge for this month was to create something with a rabbit.  I used the handsome hares stamp from 100 Proof Press and some fabrics from my stash, and I even used a hoop!  Hoop hoop!  Hop! Hop!
This little art quilt hanging was inspired by Jennifer's fun Handsome Hares Pillow 
I've been meaning to make something in a hoop for awhile now, and I'm pretty happy with how this Easter decoration turned out.
I also experimented with another idea.  This was my original idea inspired by the challenge, but eh, it wasn't quite what I was going for.  I had fun making the cuff, so maybe I'll work on this idea a bit later.
Rabbit cuff...  hmm...
