While at the rubberstamp convention this weekend I picked up a few goodies.
These first stamps all came from the booth I demo'ed at. These designs are all made by Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps.
The next stamps come from a company called Bon Ton Stamps. I had never heard from them before but liked a lot of their sayings. I'm a word kind of gal. I love to read and write...so quotations and sayings are some of my favorite images. Check our their site for others. These came as just rubber (no cushion, no mounting) so I just slapped them down to get an image to show on my blog. I guarantee these look better in person and I'll have to prove that on a card in the near future! For now I just wanted to be able to show them to you!
The two quotes say:
"I just signed up for an exercise class and they told me to wear loose clothing. If I HAD any loose clothing, I wouldn't have signed up in the first place!"
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw of the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream."
The next stamps come from a company called Copper Leaf Creations. I was trying to be selective and stay on a budget...but I had to get this duo of stamps. They just made me smile (and isn't that what life is about?)
That's about it. I did buy a single stamp at After Midnight Rubber Stamps (a cowgirl leaning against a fence). And I wanted to buy a single stamp at Hawaiin Baby Rubber Stamps (they had a "dog pile" (yes of steaming poop) that I REALLY wanted but they sold out of it the first day. So that's my purchases for the day. I spent approximately what I earned working at the booth so I was happy. It didn't cost my anything (but some of my time). We are on such a tight budget that I feel guilty using too much for rubberstamps. SO demoing was a great way to get some spending money...and it was fun to boot!
K...gotta go. Supposed to be out the door in five minutes and I'm still sitting here in my slip with wet hair and haven't eaten breakfast (oops!)
