Happy belated birthday Kat!

lately, you will see that my items are 
photographed within a hoop 
which I think frames them 
really nicely!

Hopefully you can tell that this is a robot! 
Its my first attempt!

Camera in the car

I have been dragged in by work yet again! 
It is so hard to keep on top of my crafts after a long day at work, but I will keep on going.  
He he I was experimenting with the camera in the car, 
a little personal space project I guess!?!?! 
If I had thought about it 10minutes before, the camera would have caught us singing out heart out to the radio he he! 
Could be a fun little project? Hmmmmmmmmmmm

Creating an identity using a rubber stamp

Lying there at night with my head on the pillow, ideas are just flying around my head!  It seems every single minute of the day I just can't stop being arty! I write little notes down wherever I am to make sure I don't forget my little crafty ideas!
I wouldn't have it any other way though!

I read a school report from my year one class the other day and found this quote "Tania is always found in a corner drawing something"!  These days are not really any different!  When I am not at my full-time job, I spend most of my free time surrounded by felt, ribbons and embellishments and can be there for hours!  I love making my greeting cards and felt brooches.

Since setting up my Etsy shop, I haven't had much knowledge of marketing etc and have been struggling to create a brand image for myself.  This is where the company comes in! 

Stamp Direct specialise in rubber stamps for offices and the workplace.  They are also able to create a stamp with any design for you!  This is how my logo came to life!!
In keeping with the handmade theme I had struggled to think of a way of getting my logo onto the back of my handmade cards and tags, for the felt crafts.  By being able to use the rubber stamp, I am able to steer completely away from a computer and printer and keep the textured, rustic feeling to my homemade products. 

The stamp really brings my logo to life and to see my art made into a stamp formation makes it feel that much more professional!  Even my delivery notes can be stamped with ease now!
So if you want to put your own stamp on something, get your own design put on a rubber stamp!
