New stamps

Again I would like to thank everyone for your kind comments and concerns for my mother. She is in interim care at present until they can decide what permanent level of care she requires, she's having difficulty breathing so is back on oxygen. We just take one day at a time.

I've been busy carving some new stamps which I've added to my etsy store.

I usually carve the poppy seed head but decided to carve the flower for this one.

Another abstract tree

I decided to try mushrooms as well.

And now the update of the Princess wall, I hope to have it finished within the next couple of weeks.

The princess herself enters the room

and offers RoRo lots of advice.

that's it for another week.

This is what's on my jewellery table, I'll show you later what becomes of it all.

These are some of my hand made fabric beads and my hand made chain.
There's enough here to make three more necklaces. 
I sold one at Antipodes today so I will have to get busy again.

My best wishes for your mom.
I so like your stamps and need to ask a possibly silly question...what is the surface that you are cutting into? I also love your fabric beads and will be watching for photos of the new creations!

Sorry to hear that your Mum has been unwell. Hope things improve for her and she starts to feel better soon.

That's quite a masterpiece that you have created on the wall, how lucky that your granddaughter has such a talented RoRo.

What a lucky little Princess to have such a talented RoRo! The wall is turning out beautiful.

So sorry to hear about your Mum. It isn't easy as our parents age. It sounds like your Father has been an excellent caretaker for many years. It must be so difficult for him as well.

Your talent is unsurpassed!

I have been thinking about you Ro and your Mum after our last conversation. I hope your dad is okay too. The Princess room is coming along beautifully Ro. Your stamps are terrific and the necklace components look great.

Jacky said...

Fantastic new stamps Ro and that mural for your little Princess is lucky to have such an artistic Ro Ro.
Hope all is going well for your parents.

As you say, one day at a time.
Love your new (& old!) stamps. After wanting to join your stamp workshop last year (all the way from the Isle of Skye!) I haven't bought another one! (I may buy letters & numbers:))I'm going round the garden clearing up after winter & before I cut away old seedheads I'm drawing them & building up a sketchbook. It might give me the confidence to draw the living flower in the summer! Can I see in the photo you keeping one of each stamp in a sketchbook? Lovely beads & wall.

Candace said...

Thinking about you and your mother, Ro.
And that kiddo really does look like a princess. Is that a redheaded grandchild!? She's really so sweet.

Love those stamps and love love love those beads.
Take care.

Ro Ro....

I hardly know where to begin, here.
Most importantly. I am sending prayers and positive thoughts your way, for your mother. I miss mine terribly and know how difficult it can be.

Your princess wall is amazing.
ditto on the stamps, books, jewelry......those beads that are lying on your table are ripe for just about anything. So colorful and interesting.

Still don't know how you have time for it all. I'd love to sit and "play" with you someday.

xo Karen
