You Know Where I Am

If it's Sunday....I'm usually in my studio....and very happily so.
Not always, but a lot of the time...including today...

And, I am on a playing-with-paints binge. A very fun and non-fattening binge.
I can't stop.
And I don't even want to stop. Everything sitting around my studio is fair game.


Oh yes -- rubber stamping is fun too.....right on top of the paint. But I have to wait for the paints to dry...and that is a good lesson for me...
patience..not usually one of my many (ahem) virtues....

See what I mean? I started playing with some old photos ..... wait till you see all of them! Very cool. That's for another post..

Hummm....I think this envelope looks much better now. Don't you?

FANCY
You know what I say -- Why send it plain if you can send it fancy?
Well, yesterday I found this vintage FANCY stamp in my travels....perfect for my mail.
The stamp was in a group being sold from a Sonoma apple farm -- they had Golden Delicious, Red Delicious, Medium, Jumbo....I wanted them all but settled for fancy...I may not be too patient but i do have self control.

Waiting for the paint to dry, I am playing with some stamp heads...

Tags and folders....

These could be bookmarks or gift tags.


Back to School
This was one the back of an old photo -- Don't Forget Your Schoolmates.
Sweet.

So that's it, folks. Not a lot to share. Just playing with paint and ink and rubber stamps.

What are you doing?

I have been so lucky to have received some lovely ephemera in the mail lately from my wonderful blog readers. I am working on a post showing what I got and what I did with it..
and (don't tell anyone) I think I will do a give-away too.
So, stay tuned.

  2. Wonderful work again! I keep wishing a studio of my own magically appears, but so far no luck. Means that my mom has to deal with the mess in the living room for a while longer.

  7. Wow. Have you been busier than usual or what? I need a week just to catch up with YOUR amazing posts. Do you sleep? And the food. Oh, the food! What's the egg thing? I think I'd eat it without even knowing. :)

  8. Thanks for my fancy mail, Pamela Lovely to receive as always. I keep thinking the first picture in this post is of a cocktail, but it's paint water isn't it? It must be Friday afternoon as my mind it definitely on a nice yummy cocktail.

    1. Adrienne -- you are most welcome and I think it actually arrived rather quickly this time. You are not alone in thinking that looks like a cocktail -- a number of people mentioned that. Funny. And yes--it is Friday and I think we should all have a cocktail! Maybe we should all have a Skype cocktail party!
