So many of you have asked about my stamp carving hobby. I gotta tell ya, it's one of the most relaxing things I do in my life. Some people have a glass of wine, I carve stamps.
It's quiet and methodical and oh so very satisfying.
I made a video of me making a stamp. Here's exactly how its done:
I carved this bird cage stamp yesterday. Sugar Daddy is flying away, to the other side of the world for way to long. I made this card, complete with love note inside, and tucked it into his bags.
My stamp collection is continually growing. People ask me why I don't sell my stamps. The answer is simple. People wouldn't pay what I would ask for them. Stamp carving isn't a mass market craft. It takes time.
I'm considering putting together a class for those in my area that would like to try their hand at stamp carving. If you are interested, please leave a comment with contact info.
