2015 Projects – Fifty-Two Stamps – Intro and Week 1

Last year, I added stitching to my yearly projects. I liked doing something that didn’t involve painting, drawing, or pretty paper. It was different. I liked going outside my comfort zone. So I wanted to try that again this year. I knew I didn’t want to do stitching again. But I still wanted something different.

I thought and thought and then it came to me out of nowhere.

I would carve stamps.

One stamp for each week.

This might be crazy, it might be boring, it might be useless. I am not sure how it’s going to work out. But what I do know is that I am having fun thinking about it now. I had fun carving the first few stamps I did.

It might be tough to come up with 52 ideas. We’ll see. I plan to start the year with the words that are meaningful to me, so, of course, BRAVE had to be the first one.

Here’s to a year of carving!

    Love this idea! I’m interested in carving my own stamps as well, so I’m excited to see what you create. The first one is awesome!

    So excited for this project of yours, it’s a good one! There are so many images you can do, I will have to try this!! Thank you for answering my comment below about your stamps. Julie is a queen of stamps, she just did one for everyday of December, did you see them. So cool and fun.
    This first one is a perfect start for yours, you can use it on everything!
    You could do one in the boys names, they would be thrilled I bet.

    I missed the Julie’s challenge, December is very busy for me, but your idea is doable, thanks for the inspiration, love your blog by the way

  • GREAT idea!! I am new to journaling and such, but really love your idea of creating a stamp each week. I can’t wait to see what you come up with. In the meantime I will check out your 2014 posts on stitching.

    Where did you find the supplies (I am assuming that is rubber) needed to carve your own stamp?
