I got to know about The Local People through my senior and have the opportunity to consign my stamps on their online shop which was opened earlier today! The rubber stamps on the website are not available on my etsy shop so do purchase from them directly! I also made 2 logo stamps for them and I’m pleased with the outcome. 🙂 Check out their website if you haven’t!

Neglected my blog for quite awhile, but now I’m back with freshly made stamps!

My first set of round stamps 🙂
Inspired by postmark stamp, with designs that include a few of my favourite objects!
Alpaca, flowers, tea cup with macaroons… the list goes on.

I love how small things can be so inspiring and whenever I run of of ideas I know I can just incorporate them into my designs.

Looking at the mess makes me feel very accomplished!

Placed them by the window for some natural light! 🙂
I think they look so cute side by side!

Printed and refined for mounting!
Hopefully I get to sell them at fleas or online and find new homes for them 🙂

Oh yes, talking about online, I’m planning to open an etsy shop, though everything’s not confirmed yet, but i’m still planning and very excited to execute my ideas! Will definitely update on blog/facebook for more info!

Thanks for reading!

Workshop: Garden Life

Finally back to blogging after so long! 😉
Gonna share some photos I took with my phone during last Sat’s beginners class!

Melissa very hard at work!

Stacy attempted carving using Speedball rubber block!

The participants were extremely hardworking and engrossed with carving!
I’m really glad to know that they enjoyed the workshop! 🙂

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! 😉

Images I prepared for the workshop. The theme was Garden Life!

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 🙂
