Getting more Crafty, and more Nerdy!

I finally bought a stamp carving kit, and I am so happy I did!

First the delicious Pi I made last night:

Then this morning I had an idea for an infinity love design, sketched it out a few times till I was happy, then decided to try and make it into a stamp. I didn't think it would turn out very good because of all the thin lines, but I tried anyway and I am so happy with the results!

Yes, it's not perfect, but I think it's awesome :) Here is the first stamping I tried before I reached the finished design:

Both stamps together:

And some fun tags I made with the Infinity Love stamp

So happy with myself right now! :) Thanks for looking! And if you're interested, you can expect to see both stamp designs on future tags in my etsy shop ;)

Halloween 2010

I had fun decorating for our first Halloween in our new house! We bought a few things, and I used my craft supply for the rest :) Please excuse my mass pic post, but it's my blog and I can do what I want :P tee hee hee...

Front walkway:


Home-made pumpkin:

 And after I made the above pumpkin, Jeff came home with a real pumpkin! So we (mostly he) carved it:

 On Halloween we all dressed up :)

Jeff was a pirate, I was a dead hippie, and Putski was a gangsta!


And Halloween night, with purple lights :) Not a good pic, but you get the idea ;)

The End!

Art Journal

Not too long ago I made myself an art journal that I plan on filling with memories. I haven't done much with it yet, one finished page and two planned pages, but I'm happy with it so far and can't wait to have some memories jump up and inspire me!


Lots O Pages! 10 sections with 4 pieces of paper each = 40 papers, folded in half = 80, and counting fronts and backs that makes 160 pages to fill! There are some colored pages, patterned pages, and white pages

 This is the one finished page I have (and I'm not sure if it counts as a memory...). I love the rain, and this is my page devoted to it:

Pieces for my Building Blocks page, from Once Upon a Time when I owned a preschool:

And I have this wonderful Oregon post card, so I'm going to incorporate it into the journal too. And since I used to live in Oregon it fits with the journal theme ;)

It's a blog

Ta da! I made a blog thing
