stamp happy!

Oh, friends.
I've been having such fun in my studio these past few days with the most amazing hand carved stamps - designed by the incredible Rae Missigman.

True to my nature, I couldn't wait to incorporate these stamps into my artwork. They add so much delicious texture, not to mention beautiful imagery!

Oh, but my head was spinning with so many ideas for these babies!

They are perfect for spicing up a package...

And maybe my favorite yet - making your own wrapping paper!

The possibilities!

These Natural Elements rubber stamps are available at Paper Bag Studios <3.
Happy stamping!

always the little things

Replacing fear + worry with thoughts of gratitude,
celebrating all that is good,
+ noticing the beauty in everyday is changing my life.

I keep this little book with me throughout the day to jot down what I'm feeling thankful for. It's filling up quickly!

On my list today:
the warm fire hubby built before he left for work this morning
hot cocoa + Christmas tunes while packaging Etsy orders
a clean house (it's rare!)
left overs for lunch
snuggles with my kitty
twinkle lights

It's the little things, always the little things. <3
