My hand carved stamps are going to be published!
I am so excited! I just received the news that my hand carved pug stamped cards will be in a new book, 1000 Handmade Greeting Cards.
I entered the contest through a post I read on Etsy. I believe they are still accepting entries, and the book will be published sometime next year.
Speaking of carving stamps, I had the pleasure of carving Miss Maisie for my friend, Linda.
Here is a Stamp I made of my sister's corgi, Moe.

I received the most wonderful, generous, and beautiful present from my friend Linda.
She painted my Emmitt and surprised Fred, Emmitt and me with it yesterday. She created it from a photo she took of Emmitt this Fall and even collaged one of my paintings in as a charm on his collar. My heart just sings with joy everytime I see it. I hung it in the most visable and accessible place in the house so I can see it upclose all of the time.
Thank you again Linda. I will cherish this painting forever! :)

Now Melanie knows how easy it is to make the Holiday Cards I made this year. The pug, oops... I mean the cat is out of the bag.
Speaking of Melanie and Holiday gifts, the Aero Garden she and Mark gave us is really working!
Look at our herbs grow! This is after only two weeks...
Emmitt is so excited! See him sing!
