A big thanks to those of you who have recently sent notes, pictures, and links because you tried one of my projects, felt inspired by one, or simply liked it and wanted to tell me. Each comment is a connect the dots moment which motivates me to set more time aside to craft and create. And, since I am crazy inspired by all of the mega talented peeps in blogland, when I see others interpreting my projects it makes me to the moon honored and happy. This big blogging community is super duper duper magnificent.

Another thanks to people who have sent emails, comments, and regular old mail in response to my previous post. I shared the support with Tom and we both really, really appreciated it.


I have been spending time during the past two weeks working on necklace stamp designs. I am still so captivated by the magic of stamp carving. I think part of the reason I am so caught up in carving is because I love how each stamp ends up having its own personality: geeky, excessively cute , awkward, earnest, painfully shy.


Chick has a yellow magic wand necklace that she loves and wants to wear almost every day. If you are local, just know that if you comment on her necklace, you are essentially asking for a tutorial with lots of side notes and by-the-ways.



I feel like I need to note that this pot design was fully inspired by Nanny's matzah ball soup.

  2. Hello, I was away this weekend. Thanks for asking about adding our picture to your flicker pool. That is not a problem! I love what you have been working on recently. I can see why your little one loves wearing hers! You have great ideas :-) Have a great week.

  3. I know exactly what you mean! Both with how fun carving stamps is (they *do* have more personality than store bought ones). And with how inspiring it is when people respond so well to what you've made. It really ups the motivation factor, which can sometimes lag a bit with the blogging.

    You've really got a ton of fun stuff here.
