I am not a scrapbooker (it's embarrassing, but I haven't even organized my own wedding photos yet) and I don't really stamp, except for well, you know, using stamps on metal clay. The commercial stamps I do use these days are really pretty much limited to texture sheets and letter stamps. However, I was browsing in a local stationery store last month, looking for gift wrap paper for the Short One's birthday gifts (I ultimately found some cute wild animal print paper) and came across this set of graphic circle stamps (there're a bunch more in the box - I didn't take them all out for the photo). Isn't it cute? I found myself walking out of the store with it.
Me, being me, I haven't actually used them yet, but I can see that one could make simple circle charms with these and then fill them with cheerful colored resin for a pretty (and pretty easy) summer bracelet. (I know it's difficult to tell from the photo, but the circle stamps are about the size of a penny, maybe a touch larger.)
I am an intellectual property lawyer by training and have a background in English Renaissance literature. I love science fiction. I primarily watch Sesame Street these days and find myself humming "Pop Goes the Weasel" at odd moments (guess why). I can happily eat ice cream in the middle of winter when the wind chill is 20 below 0. I have been making beads and designing jewelry since 2007.
