welcome spring!

I am so happy the spring is finally here, even though the nice sunny days come and go. I love winter, but this one has been very cold and long.




I got so inspired by the first signs of spring that I had to carve more stamps. I think I will use them to make some note cards and stationary and I will list them for sale at my etsy when I finish with some custom orders that I have been working on.


This owl stamp is from a series (owls) that I am working on right now. I am behind on these! Hope I finish them soon.


And finally, I am adding some photos that I took and edited with photoshop. It is a lot of fun and I needed some creative time with pictures too.



I know I have not answered many emails from friends and family, sorry about that. We have been very busy with some real life matters and several commitments. Sometimes we are just left with a little bit of time to be together, breathe and create. I promise I will make some time to write to the wonderful friends I have met, and family.
Thanks!

I am so inspired every time I visit your blog and see your work. I love your carvings, they are so charming. (And a wonderful editing job in photoshop - they look very soft and dreamlike - so lovely) Thank you so much for sharing!

Your stamps are wonderful. I also discovered the stamp-carving-routine and I love it. You're an inspiration.

Love your stamps again! Good idea too, to make the squirrel and the tree-lump (don't know for sure if that's the right word) seperate from each other.
And your right about living in 'blogland' and the real world... Reality comes first (but sometimes it is difficult to 'ignore' blogland; it is so much fun to write, read and look around!)

Hi Magda,
I read your blog from Brazil and I can say that it is very creative and beautiful. I wish you a inspiring spring, it will be good for us all! I have never done any stamp carving but I feel like doing it as soon as I have some free time. Down here is autumn, spring starts only in September...
Hugs!

I am curious how you did that top photo -- I love that look. It reminds me of how the world *felt* to me as a child in the early seventies.
