Little Miss Cupcake

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."

Stop looking at me... GOATS!

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.

The goat phase - two stamps starring me down.

A new place for sitting

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.
I feel a goat phase coming on!
