TADA! Their first attempt in making stamps and I would say they did a pretty neat job! 😀

I think one of the reasons why I’m addicted to carving is that it’s not just about the final outcome but also about the process of making! Something we tend to forget while doing the seemingly mundane tasks in life.

We had waffles/coffee/ice cream too~
Always know when to take a break! 😉

Messy table as evidence for hard work!

It’s really awesome to spend my saturday with the lovely participants!
Feels great to share my craft with others and I always learn something new after each workshop.
It was a small group but definitely a very rewarding one!
Looking forward to the next workshop and meet new friends 🙂

Blooom

Tried carving with my new carving blocks from Lovesprouts!
Carved out two simple outlines of flowers and played with the colours 🙂

My comments on the carving block:

I love the fact that it’s 1cm thick because it’s easy to stamp without the need to mount it on wood!
And the colours and lines turned out to be really solid and nice!
But since I’m more used to carving on soft block, my lines are quite ‘off’ on this slightly harder block.

On a side note, i bought this letter set recently because I’m so attracted to plants and flowers!
Gonna start writing some letters to my friends overseas now!

Till then~!

Thank You For Everything…

Thank You for the sunshine, thank You for the rain.
Thank You for your love and everlasting grace.
