In a land far, far away, I was a D.O.T. S. Demonstrator.
During the Christmas Season I would stamp this image at my stamp parties and show how to "emboss" and to "watercolor". It was always a big seller!
Then I moved on to a clearer vision for stamping (My Acrylix!) and somehow during the transition I lost this beautiful stamp that I loved so much! I probably gave it to Goodwill!
And now, I'm so happy to have found it again! CraigsList is truly an amazing format for reuniting the past to the present.
I will be using this stamp for a Christmas gift project and I can't wait to get started.
Twenty years have come and gone since I stumbled into my creative journey.
Once a D.O.T.S. Demonstrator - now a Close To My Heart Consultant.
Everything in life has changed.
My kids are adults (quite delightful ones I might add!)
I don't do stamp parties ( I do "workshops" at my home!) and I never use a stamp that I can't see where I'm stamping the image!
However, I still love this design.
And so I've gone backwards *creatively* into a time and place I loved.
Happy Holidays. Merry Christmas. Happy Hanukkah. Happy Kwanza.
And have a Happy New Year.
