My FIRST - tiny shipping tag book: About stamping, play, simplicity?, and being inspired by the very sweet Mary Ann. Ever since I have been receiving real mail from Mary Ann I have been so impressed with all the stamping she does. On one recent comment on Mary Ann's blog I believe I said something about starting to do more stamping. Yesterday morning, or maybe it was the day before I was looking through one of the stamping, inspiration magazines I had received from Mary Ann. I noticed especially a little shipping tag (not really certain what they are supposed to be called) book. I've always really liked them and thought I could easily make one. So on stormy yesterday I found a few of the shipping tags I have and did some tea staining. When they were dry I yanked out my alphabet stamps, my licorice scented (Yummm) black stamp pad and a couple of other things. It took me awhile. I knew I also needed practice with a steady hand. It's not perfect - YES! I had such fun AND I really like the looks of it. What do you think? Would you decorate it any more or leave it simple? I think I like it simple but...?
