I Like to Give, Not Just Get!


Over the past few weeks I have been making stuff for others as well as for myself. I often find it hard to make something if I don’t have a tangible reason (someone’s birthday, someone’s hostess gift). This notion is one that I am trying hard to overcome. The simple act of creating fills me with so much joy that that should be reason enough to make stuff.

That said, I have made a few items for others recently that I would like to share now that they are all in the intended recipients’ hands.

About a month ago I made this totally rad stamp as a birthday gift for my friend Reine, who is ga-ga for typography and rubber stamps. I had a lot of fun making both the stamp and the packaging. I used a brown lunch sack and some ribbon and the stamp itself because that was what I had on hand and I am very happy with the results.

Thank You Card

Last week I made this thank you note for the egg dance and baba reens for being such awesome hosts! I used items I had picked up when we all went antiquing together. The acrylic transfer came out a little too well (the dad’s face is VERY transparent) but I had a lot of fun making the card and I knew they would appreciate it.

Free Radical Stencil

Finally, a few hours before D. and I headed off to Washington, DC this past weekend, I made this super cool stencil and bleached a tank top with it. One of the many awesome things on my birthday weekend agenda was to see our friend, Katherine (aka Free Radical) skate in a championship roller derby bout and I wanted to show my support. After the bout I gave Katherine the shirt and the stencil because she loves this font and being a roller girl.
