My first carved stamp

Finally I tried it.  Cut my own stamp.  I can see it could get a lot better with practice but I'm happy with my first attempt.  I plan to use it to stamp on the paper bags I use at my sales.  Originally I was just doing a quick simple doodle on the bags by hand but that got old really fast.  This will make it a lot easier.

I've been busy again, scheduled a couple of sales at an open market place out in Lake Oswego.  If it goes well I may pick up a couple more dates.

I'm hoping to get my art sales built up so I can retire from my day job.  Tomorrow wouldn't be soon enough.  But sales this summer were not as good as I had hoped but still trying.  
I need to get stuff on Etsy again, I've let it go for awhile.

I'm working on some new products as soon as I get them finished I'll post pictures.

Can't believe it's September already.  Summer went so fast.

Thanks for visiting.

Hugs

I'm sure now that you've carved one stamp it won't be your last. I find it sort of addictive once I get started.

Good luck with all your venues.

The stamp is a great idea! I'm glad you've got so many shows lined up. When you get a chance, let me know your thoughts on Etsy. I'm thinking of starting a shop for my photography.
