If It's Fiber...

I mailed out the postcards today. I cut the dogs out of corderoy that I had in my fabric stash. It was leftovers from a meditation cushion that I made when I was taking a Tai Chi class. The pink yarn is leftover from my Kyoto, the first sweater I knitted. I carved the stamps out of some corks from my insane collection of corks. I just can't bring myself to throw away a cork unless it was destroyed in the removal, so I have a large supply of them. The paper is from a friend's stash. She sells the Stamping Up stamps and papers. This color is called "Certainly Celery".
So I completed my postcards while still keeping in the Stashalong theme!
I can't wait to see the postcards I will receive!


  • Wow -- you are crafty. I would have never thought of making stamps from corks. I love the post cards.

  • Hi Ann! I got my postcard today--thanks so much! It's so sweet, the little corduroy dog is just perfect. I didn't realize until I read this post that you made the letter stamps too! Wow! What a great idea, and you did it so well!
