Get Your Stamp On . . .

{Note: During the month of August, I’m participating in The August BreakYou’ll see a lot of photos on the blog this month. For more on that read this post.}

In late May, I stumbled across Kozue Schwartz’s work. She creates lovely stamps and I was immediately taken with the idea. After looking at Kozue’s Etsy page, I decided to send her a note and ask her to design a custom stamp for book signings. The stamp arrived yesterday!

Check it out . . .

    That’s so cool! I’m working on some print carvings too. I’m not sure yet if they’ll end up as woodblocks or rubber/vinyl stamps, but in honor of our move onto our wooden ketch-rigged sailboat, I’m working on some “Home Sweet Ketch” designs. 🙂

    Can’t wait to read your book!

    Wow, lots going on! Your voice sounds happy and excited in your audio today (love that format, by the way). Happy picture taking!

      @Katie – Yup, lots going on this month. I’m excited about the big changes. I’m glad you like the audio format. I’ve been having a lot of fun with it.

    I’m trying to rescue my plants namely the Basil and the Tomato. Was away for 2 months and it the Basils decided to flower!

    Bad news when Basil flowers….so the project s to try to save the plants. Else no fresh basils for a while. As for the tomato, neds plenty of plant food, love ad lots of sun! Fingers crossed if I can get the taste of my tomatos, coz the first 2 were eaten by a friend who said they were tasty! He ate them coz he didn’t want it to go wasted on the vine.

    Hey Tammy!

    Super post and I love the audio. Perhaps I will try one myself one of these days 🙂

    This week I’m working on preparing super duper french lessons to teach to my fellow English people in the French village that we live in.

    I’ve just received a new shipment of yarn, so I am a one-woman crochet machine!

    I am whispering sweet nothings to my vegetables in the garden; and gasping in absolute awe every day at their progress – such a magical thing to grow your own food from scratch!

    And I am writings lots and lots and can’t wait to start your course.

    p.s.s.s.s.t.t.t.t…Hurrah for Kozue! She carved me a stamp with my Je Suis Une Monstre logo, which I used to stamp all my packaging for my handmade Hoop-la Scarves: http://jesuisunemonstre.blogspot.fr/2011/10/10-hoop-la-scarves-hanging-on-wall.html
