New Toy, Oh Boy!!!

I love letters. I know they have become quite trendy in art lately. That is not why I have purchased them.

I've been interested in putting text in some of my pieces for a long time, but I didn't want to purchase alphabet stamps. I don't want to be required to state which company creates a certain stamp. I either want it to be original, or vintage.

I had my eye on these stamps on Etsy for a while. When I went to clear my open windows a couple weeks ago, these popped up again. And they were on sale!!!! If you can call $120 a sale. I guess I could. I am right pleased with them. They seem to be a good size - 1 5/8".

Tomorrow I finish cleaning the studio. Then I will show a new video. Then off to a new project. I hope. I do feel there is more pacing to be done.

Don't forget that I am selling fabric and supplies on Etsy. More will come this week.

Oooh, those letters are wonderful! They'll make a lasting impression on your art I'm sure, pun intended :)

I love the vintage letter press letters too. I have a couple--the number 5 and a J, both quite large.
