Thanks for your mothering support yesterday. I was really happy that you enjoyed the scissor stamp as much as I did! I've been printing on everything in sight. I even had to make a scissor pouch (linen with Japanese hedgehog lining), just so that I could stamp it!
Then there were the moleskines...


organic totes...

I'm thinking of doing an entire series on the tools I use most. Which led me to my next image instantly: the humble clothespin.

How many times a day do I use these ingenious clips? From laundry to sealing up snack bags, I never take them for granted. I've had this stamp on my mind since I made a peg bag last spring. I plan on making a bunch of "peg bags" with a clothespin print for the shop. Oh, I have lots of ideas for how to fill up my neglected little shop... summer is not the time for that kind of pressure, though. I'm finally realizing that. It will be August tomorrow, and I'm grateful that is finally sinking in... just in time for some of this...

Happy weekend friends! Hope you find a bit of time for what you need most... Pin It

  5. You are so talented! Love the stamps! I'm so glad I found your blog recently. I've also enjoyed the 'barn tours' of your mom's barn (hope I'm correct?). I also love the hedgehog fabric. I should find some of that for our little hedgie family members, Templeton & Moxie! We make blankie liners for their homes :) -Tammy

  8. I too like your new stamps. I don't know if it is the simplicity of your images or the fabric you stamp them on but they evoke a feeling of such calm. Just beautiful.

    awaiting quieter days when summer drifts,
