|Little Miss Cupcake|
Wednesday, June 29, 2011
I finally got around to making some new images for my rubber stamp company. Months ago I asked Danita, from Danita Art if she would like to work with me to make some rubber stamps. I was so excited when she sent me some illustrations I could use to make rubber stamps. I turned three of the images she made into stamps - I can't wait to make more. This is the first one that is for sale, my daughter who is a big Danita fan, named her "Little Miss Cupcake."

These goat stamps just keep looking at me, asking me to make something with them. I haven't quite figured out what it will be. I just have them there sitting on my work table, trying to get me motivated. I'm just not sure what they want to become. Thinking, thinking.

I finally got around to cleaning up an old chair and painting it. I love using fun fabric and adding color to my craft room. My dad had this chair in his basement for a long time and it was in his "work in progress" pile - he was going to sand it down to the beautiful oak and then refinish it. But I abducted it and it became a WIP for me. I did find a carved in branding on one of the pieces, so I think the chairs are kind of old - it would have been nice to see how it started out, who sat on it. . . it is painted purple now.
I stripped off what was left of the sitting part, spider eggs and all, and then I cut a piece of ply-wood to size and covered it with a thick foam and fabric. I knew I wanted to do something with that fabric I would see everyday, and this seemed like the perfect project for it.
