I started with a simple heart.
Then proceeded to carve a block after my house! Turned out quite cute :)
The hardest part of carving my own stamps was figuring out how to assemble the Speedball tool! It didn't come with any sort of instructions, and the instructions were also not available online! Anyways, after cursing a bit and messing with it for a few minutes, I figured it out.
You want to place the blade "in between" these two parts! Who would have thought...
It has been so hot in the Bay Area. The temperature was above 100° yesterday! That almost never happens here. But of course, today is when I decide to use the oven to bake Kale Chips. I used sea salt, vinegar, and Parmesan cheese. They came out quite tasty!
Lately, I have been fascinated and spending a lot of time researching how to crochet and knit toys. I decided to make another Elijah, but he is wearing a stripy sweater this time. He is coming together quite nicely. I ran out of cotton stuffing and plan to get more today.
I hope you are staying indoor and avoiding the crazy heat! Have a great rest of the weekend.
