Stampin' and Campin'

Last May, my family made our annual journey to the Strawberry Music Festival.  Camp was great, music was fabulous, the weather....not so much (it snowed on us a bit!).

When the sun popped out, out came the tools and I stamped about 50 pendants for the folks in our camp (using Nickel Discs and Nickel Chain).  I have discovered my new all-time favorite place to stamp....ON A STUMP!


My goodness, I have never had such a successful stamping session.  The resistance from ol' Mother Nature was perfect.  No wobbly table, no bounce back, just a strong stable foundation from deep in the Earth.  It also helped that I was using a high quality Beaducation Original Stamp Set :)

I'll bet everyone had a ball either watching, helping, giving advice :) or whatever. And I bet they really enjoyed the stamps you made and gave them.

I have a stump in my studio! I kept a chunk of the cottonwood tree we had to take down. It's the best for pounding away on!
