Cat's out of the bag...

ok, i think it's safe to go ahead and say something, i don't think i'm gonna jinx it ..... i've submitted some sketches to an engraver here in town that laser cuts rubber and i'm going to have stamps made!  oh, i am so totally stoked!!!  on monday i will get a proof and a cost estimate (it is based on how much time it spends under the laser) so i don't have pricing just yet.  i plan on doing a limited run, so be sure to order now so you don't miss out.  I can't post them up on etsy since i don't have them yet, but send me an email ( and let me know you are interested and that will give me a better idea how much to order.  If this goes well, and proves to not be too terribly costly, i have a ton more that i'd like to see him do.  ok, maybe not an actual ton, but....

oh, and they will be unmounted, just rubber, no cushion because it does help keep costs down ....

completely excited!!  oh, leave a comment and be entered to win a free set!

fork in the road

just wanted to let everyone know that thanks to both my ex & a friend of mine who is super web-smart, you can now get to this blog directly from as well, they set up a redirect for me.  The dedicated site was just waaay too much for me to maintain and honestly i like etsy better as a selling venue and posting here is just so much simpler since i don't have to worry about content/code spam and designing the pages too (i'm lazy, i like templates!)  so thanks to bob & toby!!!!
