Mission accomplished… All nineteen small ovals that I threw last night are now stamped
& assembled. They’re under wraps overnight so their moisture levels can balance out a bit.
Tomorrow they’ll get some colored slip details & start drying. But for today…
they’re done… with plenty of time for tonight’s Academy Awards!!!

I love all of your stamps. Did you make all of them or is there someplace I might be able to purchase them?

HEY JOAN – Thanks for checking in. I do make my own stamps. It’s not a tough process. It’s just a piece of clay with a carved pattern. If you click on the link below, it should take you to a quick tutorial that shows how I make mine. I’m sure there are places to buy stamps… but I think it’s MUCH more fun to make my own!!!
