My daughter and I went to the Indianapolis Rubber Stamp Show this last Saturday and had a great time. I found some great new places to shop here in Indy… on-line and in person. First of my new favorites is an awesome on-line store called Retro Cafe Art. They carry all kinds of good stuff for all avenues of art… rubber stamper, mixed media/collage, jewelry, etc, etc, etc! You must check them out.

Another one of my favorites was Too Much Fun Rubber Stamps. They have “interactive and dimensional designs that are fun and serve a purpose”. That was quoted from their website and it is so true. They are not really new to me. I have purchased from them many times before. But I had to share them with you. I love their images. The images below is are 2 of the ones I purchased. Doesn’t it look just like my Cookie?
I just had to have them. The purse is separate from the dog stamp. Oh, so darling! You have to check out their site. There is so much to choose from… pull-up pockets, folding shirts, dimensional boxes.
Last, but not least was INDY UP-CYCLE. This store is new to me. They are located at 620M Rangeline Road, Studio 1 in Carmel, Indiana. They sell art and craft supplies at Pay-As-You-Wish Pricing. That means you pick out what you want and go to the cash register and pay what you want. How often can you go into a store and do that? NEVER! All items in the store has either been donated or rescued. You’d be surprised at how many people throw out their crafting supplies when they “get tired” of them. Now you can donate them to Indy Up-Cycle and while you’re there pick up something new for yourself. I can’t wait to visit this store. I also want to take several of their workshops. They seem interesting and very affordable. I hope to make it there this month. I’ll let you know what I find. If you have already been there, post a comment to let me know what you like best!

Since my February Stamp Camp got canceled I thought I would give you a little taste of spring. Indiana has had unusually spring like weather in January and it has inspired me to get out into the yard, do some spring cleaning, create with flowers and little animals… Therefore, my March Stamp Camp will be spring themed. As many of you know, I have a BIG event planned. You will not want to miss it. It is called a “Round Robin” event and it is right around the corner! Here are the details:
Travel around to different tables to create 6 spring themed projects, receive the NEW 2012 A Muse Studio catalog and a scrapbook kit.
Enjoy drinks and a dessert bar with other stamping friends!
I need 6 table hostesses!!! If you fill a table of eight with yourself and 7 friends your admission will be FREE and you will also receive an additional FREE hostess gift.
