Can't say "no"

Carving stamps over and over it may seem tedious to some people, but let me tell you that this is addictive. I am having a lot fun making the personalized rubber stamps, although I am very busy making them I just can't say no when people at Etsy ask me to make this particular stamp for them. I design them myself, usually using a picture of the child or adult that the stamp will be for and add a name or names.


I have one for my child and it is wonderful to stamp from books, letters to friends, to clothing (I use waterproof ink for fabric).

I make fabric labels and sew them to children's clothing.

You are a carving machine! I can't believe your sales numbers. Isn't it great to find your little niche in this craft market? Love my calicodaisy stamp, though I've yet to use it properly. Soon though...

This is a really great idea, and super adorable. I really love your work and I'll probably be ordering some custom stamps for you in the next few months. :D

Your stamps are so amazing! I have just started stamp carving, but I doubt I could ever make something this cute... Keep up the good work :)

Your stamps are great! We have a few of them including a custom name one. My daughter decided that it needed to be a tattoo...I found a tattoo ink pad and.....not a day goes by when she does not request a tattoo. You can see a picture on my blog

isn't this etsy thing so addicting? I know just what you mean when you say you can't say no, there's so much I can use my time on but I so love filling orders knowing they are going to little ones.

awww.. i am loving "to the moon and back" my 3 yr old says "I love you more than the sun, the moon, and all the stars" but sometimes she replace them with something like "I love you more than Elmo or icecream" makes me wish I could bottle all that love up and save it for when she is a teen!
Love the little children stamps! Too cute!

Hello! I am in absolute awe of your carving skills! I have just started making a few stamps, I have just bought a massive piece of speedy-stamp, before that I used lino which although smells gorgeous, is very hard to cut, which you will know if you've tried it before. You achieve very neat cuts! How do you manage it? I think I NEED one of these stamps, they are so so cute!!! Best wishes, Joey x

gnoriep said...

You do wonderful work! I carve my own rubber stamps also but I think I need to practice a lot more before I can do such neat carvings!
Would you consider publishing a book on your designs? I love to carve stamps but I cannot produce such cute drawings!

ktl said...

I don´t know how you make the names because are very small.
Congratulations for your work!
