My life has been full of seedlings lately! First there were the tomatoes, that started like this, grew into this and looked like this when first planted in the garden. They’ve grown a lot in the past few weeks, because first we had an awful lot of rain (see below) and now we’re having sunny, warm and humid days. In the photo above are endive and lettuce, waiting patiently to be added to the veggie patch.
So. Much. Rain. For days. I thought all those precious seedlings would drown, but everyone’s doing fine! That section of grass with the piles of earth and grass and a very sad Christmas tree? That will be home to chickens soon!
In my previous post I wrote about looking back through my older work for inspiration and being enamored with the simple shapes of the stamps I used. I’m now using some of them again for my new collection, but in a slightly different way! I love the handmade aesthetic, the imperfections that come with carving stamps by hand and then printing by hand. I can’t do the latter anymore, but I can keep those things that give it character in my designs.
Caught in the act of digitizing those stamps and making pretty patterns with them. This mix of handmade and digital really suits me.
And last but not least some interesting reads (and looks) for you:
Have a good week!
