It’s wednesday and that means a few things:
- It’s showing your workdesk day, normally at Julia, but now at Lunch Lady Jan.
- I don’t have to work today.
- It’s the perfect day to do my first summer jar activity.
Crochet or knit something. Hmmm, I don’t know how to knit and am not in the mood to learn it. My mom tried to teach me once and according to her I was hopeless. I do know how to crochet and I have these patterns for really cute typical dutch amigurumi dolls. But I don’t feel like doing crochet either. Well this is my own challenge and I said prompts could be adjusted to likes, let’s do that.
Yesterday my husband draw some characters that I thought would look cute as stamps. I’m going to make a stamp today. A while ago I bought these cheap cutting/carving tools and some foam to make stamps with. I’ve only used it once, it’s time to get the dust of it.
I hate these tools! The blades aren’t sharp and it’s impossible to carve details. I’m getting a bit cranky doing this. It’s not working and I want this to work. Now what to do? Simple, go to a good craftstore and get a good set of tools. And since I’m there I take some real linoleum as well. I ignore the paint, brushes and ohhh pretty paper, I’ve been a good girl and left it all in the shop. At home I tried my new tools and I loved it. Sure I need practise to make a good lino-cut, but for a first try I’m happy.
