Confessions of a Phrase Stamp collector...

Yes. I am crazy. Truth be told I am not alone.  I started scrapbooking (I know sounds goofballish) like three years ago and realized there is a ton of these phrase stamps. I then realized I needed them all. Don't laugh. Anyhow you see they are so easy to use and come in so handy! ok now you can laugh!

My collection...
 Here you can see one of my newest date stamps... IT'S HUGE! OH AND I LOVE IT!
the other was originally a white handle until I put pink spray paint on it! No phrase stamp is safe from spray paint!

here I stamped on a target page flag and attached it to a paperclip... you know for all those #plannerjunkies!

here I added it to my get messy journal and used it for a prompt.

this one well it's pink and hello kitty!
here I added the phrase to a gift tag for Valentine's Day

this was my collection about 2 years ago... I out grew this plastic kitchen tub quickly!

I want to say this was one of my first date/phrase stamps. I was so happy! It might sounds silly but I just think it's so cute!
this was one of my first homemade business cards. Boy that sure is sorry looking.
In fact I still don't own any business cards.   

I just got this stamp last night... I think I have 3 other date stamps that have come in kits. I can't part with them.
So there you have it this is my confession.. I own way too many phrase stamps.

#Stationery Addict- Pens Pens & More Pens!

So I am loving everything pen related these days as my love for lettering continues.
I will be honest with you... I am trying hard to perfect my lettering for my next tee.
I will be even more honest with you... I am afraid. Yes,  you heard it here.

As an artist or shop owner not everything is always peachy. It's risky! You take a risk
every time you post your art work on social media platforms.

Ok sorry I was getting deep on you. Let's move on shall we? I want to take you on a trip with me to this lovely store I found in downtown San Jose, California.

I work about 5 minutes form this store and never knew about it until some planner friends told me about it.

Let's roll...
your here for stationery items right?
This is what I walked into... in a small stationery section of a store called Muji, there they were 
pens galore! 

Pens and notebooks!? I was in heaven!  

Stamps too! Yes! 

This is it folks... a lil piece of heaven right here in San Jose! If you are in the area it's def a must to see!
