Stamping for boys?

I don't have a lot of masculine stamps. I do have tool stamps but that does not work for 10 and 15 year old boys. So I went basic and kind of a wallet theme since they wanted money. These were super easy and I even made the envelopes. That is one large open end envelope cut in half and designer paper used to top and close it. I did not want too much work since I don't think these will be kept, but they had to have a little cool factor. Hope it goes over well with my sweet nephews! Such good boys!

What is my thing with birds?

I am actually not a bird fan. They freak me out. BUT, look at my two projects from last month's workshop. Geez, I did not even realize it until after. Even I can admit they are way cute. And maybe I do like owls a little. Just not in person.

I have my projects finished for the Halloween class coming up and I REALLY love them! No, I am not just saying it so you will sign up. But if you do want to come, see the post below and sign up ASAP.
