I’ve been quite creative these three last days. I started on wednesday when I decided to fix some rubber stamps I bought around easter. I bought some unmountanted rubber stamp and I needed some foam-thing to stick on the back, so I can use it on a acryllick block. I fixed one on wednesday, some yesterday and the rest today.
I wanted to test out one of the stamps. You press it on paper and then you paint it inside. I’ve never done that before, I thought it would be fun to give it a try. I ended up making a whole card.
I must say I’m happy about how it turned out. It’s not bad for a first atempt. The text says ‘a little sailor on life’s big ocean’, a quote I got from mum.
Sitting there watching the card, I started to make a poem up in my head. I wrote down what I thought of and suddenly I had a whole poem! It took me like three minutes to make it. It has never happened this fast before. It’s in Norwegian, but I’ve tried my best to translate it. It wont sound as nice, since I lost the rhymeing when I translated it though.
You are a small sailor
on life’s vast oceans.
You’ll meet good moments
but also challenges and requirements.
With wisdom and love
on the great journey,
you are ready to meet
the big, big world.
Remember that your aunt,
always will be near you.
And be part of the voyage
in all kinds of weathers
This poem is going to be inside the card. And the card is for my nephew. My sister and brother in-law won’t baptize him, but in stead they will have a ‘name-ceremony’ to celebrate him and his name.
As a gift for Emil, I’ve bought this tiny blue backpack (12 liters) and one even cuter lunchbox. It’s a Postman Pat lunchbox. I used to love Postman Pat! He was so cool. I remember when I was 6, I got a greeting on my birthday on the radio from grandma and grandpa. And I got to hear the Postman Pat theme-song! I was in heaven. Now I hope to pass on some Postman Pat love to my nephew!
Back to the card. I would love to have a rubber stamp that says made by Kjersti or something in that alley. When I give away card I want them and others who sees it to know it’s handmade by me. I’ve been thinking of buying such a rubber stamp for ages now, but never gotten around to it. Not until today!
I went on ebay and found a really cute rubber stamp made by loongchai74. It’s 3.8 cm x 3.8 cm. This stamp is soooo cute. I love it already, even though I don’t got it yet. I hope it will be sent soon! It was cheap too! I’m very happy about this new stamp. I’m gonna use it on every card I’m making.
I’m gonna go use one of the other stamps now. The bbq-chef stamp. It fits my dad so I’m gonna make him an early birthday card. His birthday is in late October… it’s no harm to be finsihed early, is it? ;)
