nice week

This week has been interesting, I have been dreaming stamps and strange images of designs and all sorts of things. I have been finding new ways to get inspired and I am in a real need to start some artwork. I have some ideas in mind already I just need to translate them and put on paper. As a self taught artist I sometimes find very hard to put my thoughts and ideas on paper, I need some training I think. I just don't know where to start.

Anyway, I am happy because yesterday one of my stamps got featured on Rare Bird Finds. Love the site, a lot of interesting things to find there and love the bird too.
Custom Return Address Hand carved Stamp

I found out by one person that inquired about my stamps. The featured Stamp on Rare Bird Finds is this Return Address Hand Carved Stamp that I designed, it is custom made and I think is very charming. So it was really nice to know that others find my work interesting, it makes me to want to continue this even further.

Talking about different things, I run a group called Craft Matchbox Swap on Flickr.com. I am getting to know a lot of really nice and interesting people from all over the world there. This group is a SWAP group, we exchange a Matchbox with craft goodies. But is not just any common matchbox that we exchange, the matchbox has to be decorated according to a theme that we choose. This month's swap is Valentine's Day, and it is nice to see all the pictures of the nicely prepare matchbox with all those fun surprises. If any of the readers of my blog is interested, I invite you to join us; it is very interesting and fun.

Well, I have to go back to work and I hope everybody stays warm (or cool). Here in the Midwest of the United States has been extremely cold but life continues ;)
