Rest, Relax and Refresh

As the year comes to a close, I am choosing to step back to have a chance to reflect on 2020, plan for 2021, complete a few dangling deadlines, and perhaps even rest, relax and refresh. I will be around as usual for the next few days but will be "harder to find" from Thursday 12/25/20 through Saturday 1/2/21. During this period, I will be inconsistent at best on social media and the shop will be closed - so stop by soon if you need/want/crave any items. Feel free to reach out via email, FB or IG and know that I will eventually get back to you. 

The shop will reopen and I will reappear with many, many, many creative plans on Sunday 1/3/21. Between now and then, enjoy any and all of the holidays that you celebrate and, above all, be safe. I am looking forward to a better 2021 and sending thanks to each of you for the incredible support and care you continue to show me.

NEW Release: Impression Obsession Stamps

Excited to share my newest stamp designs for Impression Obsession. The collection of three sets is all about text and includes two new sets in my Journal Jargon series and the first in a new series called Word Strips.



Journal Jargon 8

The idea behind this set came during a FB Live discussion related to unusual, unique-sounding words, where together we brainstormed a long list. The 18 words that made it to the set will offer you an alternative to the more ubiquitous words that are often seen in the rubber stamp world.


Journal Jargon 9

This 18-word set, in a grungy typewritten font, includes words that I call creative descriptors. These are all descriptions that might be apt for a creative - in other words, for you! If you like these, you may want to also check out Journal Jargon 4 which includes another set of 18 creative descriptors.


Word Strips 1

Word Strips 1 contains 4 stamps, each that highlight a single word: STOrYTeLLer, PROMISE, MEMORIES and HOPE. Each is part of a grungy design strip, portions of which can be a stand alone element for your work as well.


All IO stamps are made in the USA. They are high quality, deeply etched red rubber backed with repositionable cling cushion. If you are new to my stamps - or need a refresher of all my previous designs - head to my 70-page Look Book, complete with art.
