Stamp Carving

Every fall, I get an extra burst of energy to start something new.  Last year I tried jogging and push ups.  (I never said that this something new stuck with me for long.)  This year I've been following a lot of art and craft blogs and have been inspired to do some crafting of my own.   This stamp carving tutorial reminded me of projects I used to make.  (Also, the thrill of using sharp objects after the baby goes to bed sounded like too much fun.)

 The first stamps I made were remaking old stamps I had that had deteriorated.

Then I started a batch of numbers of different font styles. 

Since then, I started doodling everyday things (for me) and carved these.   I've been using them in a journal that I recently started...but that is a post for a different day.
