it's the little things


I've made
mini cards made from
mini stamps
carved out of white erasers
(click HERE for the how-to post)


and mini gifts
of decorated matchboxes
"merry"
and
"bright"
(click HERE for the post about these)

I'll see you tomorrow for tea and catching up on things ....
until then,
 I hope you're warm and dry today
I know there's lots of snow for some of you guys
and if you're in LA you're trying to keep cool
Our town's river is expected to crest above flood stage tomorrow ...
we live on a hill, so we'll stay dry, but it's so hard on the folks who don't.

You carved some wonderful looking stamps. I only wish I were that talented. I made the date 2010 and it looked like a child did it. No way could I make that amazing tree.

What strange weather we are having. You may send some of the flood waters our way. It's been very dry here, and no snow, just blowing cold.

See you tomorrow.

Such sweet stamps! Love the simplicity of the cards...just a single color stamp on white paper. Sometimes it's nice to have a bit of a visual break...awesome.

Your carved erasers are brilliant as well as those Merry and Bright matchboxes. Thanks for the inspiration-- maybe for Valentine's Day?
