I'm getting too old for New Year's resolutions, but when I saw this little Rubber Soul stamp, We Must be Willing, I decided that it was definitely worth further thought in the upcoming year! I don't know about you, but sometimes I get my plate so full of good things that I find I am excluding or at least shortchanging the truly important things. I won't bore you by babbling further, but I thought I'd share this little stamped reminder.
Rebecca Oehlers, in her fabulous blog Hemidemisemiquaver, (say that three times quickly), posted a tutorial on using acrylic blocks to make coasters a few weeks back. I commented on them, and she blessed me with a set to play with! I am working on a trio of them that I'll try to have finished in the next few days, but I used the fourth one tonight for this little piece. (I don't think I'll use it as a coaster; I'll probably figure out a way to mount a hanger on the back.) The printed paper is from My Mind's Eye Jen Wilson Signature Collection, the stamped sentiment from Rubber Soul, and the 3-1/2" square acrylic block is from Kitchen Sink Stamps, where they come in sets of four. I used flame Dew Drops to glue around the edges and SU's kraft taffeta to tie around the finished block.
Be sure to check out Rebecca's blog and tutorial; it will be well worth your time!
