hello!
Alliterations are amusing. Chandeliers, cheesecakes, and charm bracelets make me happy. My blog aims to spread pink, positive thoughts and pretty little things. Send me some love and kisses via mail@krissyfied.com.

I love stamps and I cannot lie.

After showing a facet (I love that word) of my personality to you guys yesterday (you know, the music video-loving girl), here I am again revealing yet another side of my dorky self.

I love rubber stamps! Maybe it's just me, but I just love how they give an air of whimsy to almost anything. Plus, they show effort; they lend a more personal touch to my letters and notes without subjecting the reader to my scratchy penmanship. Also, they're a great solution to my dream of having my own typewriter again after I lost my old fancy one to a big fire. Typewriters are heavy, bulky, and expensive, so my alphabet rubber stamp sets are great substitutes!

Here's my humble collection:



ALPHABETS


ROUND LACE DOILY | POLKA DOTS


FAIRIES


STAMP PADS AND INKS

I spent a lot of hours trawling etsy and other online shops for more stamps I can add to my collection. But then, as much as I want to keep buying them every time payday comes around, I know I can't because I do have other things I need to set aside money for like books and clothes and shoes. It is good and comforting to know that as with other things in life, there is a magic solution for this: DIY! I will attend a short workshop this coming Saturday where I will learn to make my own rubber stamps! Yay! Well, the workshop is actually about tie-dyeing and stamp-making and we'll also make our own scarf designs, but I'm mostly excited for the stamp-making part heehee. I'm also quite nervous because I'm not really good in drawing, but I guess I'll just have to wing it. We will be provided our own materials for the projects we will make, but just the same I have already scoured different online shops where I can source other carving tools I might need in the future when I'm already a big stamp-maker extraordinaire. LOL how sweet it is to dream. 

But really guys, I'm just excited to attend another workshop/ class again because I love learning new things. Oh man I am such a big nerd. Oh well.
