I think I told you a while back that my guys got a Speedball cutter for Valentine's Day. We have enjoyed it immensely. And when I say WE, I mean that um, the mama likes to pull it out after they go to bed so that she can have a turn playing with it too!
Mr. Chicken Says Thanks
I used it to carve a little chicken stamp for my birthday boy/chicken farmer. I stamped all his birthday wrapping paper with it, and it gave him a sweet surprise… What could be better than waking up to gifts all wrapped up in chickens?
He loves his little chicken stamp, and has stamped her on every solid surface for a 10 mile radius, including his brothers, who spent the better part of a week covered in wee red hens.
Anyhow, it's also had a unintended, and awfully sweet use. He used his stamp to write thank you notes for his birthday gifts.
Ordinarily, he is not such a fan of writing thank-yous, but the stamp made it kind of fun for him.
I think this could be the beginning of a new tradition for us. Mama makes the birthday boy a special stamp and then he gets to use it to make his thank-you cards.
I might better look into some washable stamp pads though.
