I have alot of craft supplies that I get a little posessive about. I either really like them or I just really want them to turn out great and so I get a little intimidated about actually using them and, as a result, they just sit there. This 'eraser' block is one of those things. I just never had the perfect thing to make into a stamp and the whole stamp-making endeavour seemed like it required an art degree. I think that it is possible I've had this for 8 years, which means it has moved with me four times, including overseas. Ridiculous. Going through my things the other day I ran across it and decided to just start carving into it.
No plan, and clearly no art degree. I didn't pre-draw anything just went with it. It turned out fun. I think I like my little cards-that-have-no-purpose. I like that my tree could double as a broccoli, maybe that will be handy some day. It makes me want to make some beets to join the crowd. Because, yes, I have a second block that I've also had for the same amount of time. I really like the speech balloon. I don't really know of the occasion in which one sends a talking tree card but it will come to me.
Now, to get up the guts to use some of my favorite yards of fabric.
