Confessions of a Stampaholic


You cannot have too much fun with rubber stamps! Today I am packing a "thinking of you" box for a friend and did the trick of turning the (used) cardboard box inside out so I had a nice, clean surface to present to the post office. Yeah right! Like I am ABLE to leave a nice, clean surface alone!!! So I rubber stamp, I collage. I rationalize WHY I have such a large collection of rubber. I can't help it. I browse ebay and I BUY. Especially when I find incredibly unique stamps under the sedate description of "nice lot rubber stamps". I have cardboard boxes precariously piled in my studio, now vaguely organized by type or subject. There is my box of Asian stamps (one of my favorites), my box of oddments (like those pictured), collage stamps, background stamps, postoids, a little floral with sentiments, but not many (I like artsier stamps). So this will be the subject of my next zine for the Gleaner Zine 7 for 7 swap. I need to get cracking on it! My problem is that I often talk more about a project than do actual work on it. heehee
