Because it was the damn Rubber Stamp Expo.
They look like they would be really difficult but they’re surprisingly easy. I picked up a few paper punches to try to make some myself, and so far I think they look pretty awesome. I’ll let you admire these first though, and wait until my technique improves before I put up my own pictures.
Can’t wait to make some new stuff with them for the gift boutique I am doing in December.
So there were lots of stamps, for reals. This place was not kidding around. I was surprised by how many southwest-themed stamps there were, but not surprised that no one seemed to be buying them. Just because the expo took place in Arizona doesn’t mean people wants rubber stamps of pottery, cowboy hats and Kokopelli. Ugh.
No what else there were lots of? Old ladies. Seriously old. I didn’t see one other person my age in the entire building, which is lame.
Come on younger people, rubber stamps are cool. Right? *crickets*
