More adventures! In craft and in the outdoors.

So I have been rather productive this week for a change. I have finished a heap of things I was working on for my stall AND actually taken photos of them. Which is quite an achievement for me I must say. If you want to check some of them out they are on my facebook page at I am pretty pleased with how my new photos came out :)

In other news I have picked up some rubber and some lino cutting tools. I got excited when I came across some photos of handmade stamps. I immediately wanted to give it a go myself. So after much debate on what I wanted to try to carve for my first stamp I finally settled on kirby. Mainly because I can draw him without actually having to look at anything. Then after some careful carving this was this result.

Turned out pretty good I think for my first go. So now I want to go and make more stamps. Me and my habit of wanting to do everything...

That's all the exciting news in the craft world. In the outside world adventures were also had when we (we being Nick, Nick's bro and his gf). Did a trip to Wallaman falls. This is pretty exciting because I have actually never been there before. It was a 2hr drive there and back but it was so worth it. The falls were amazing! Next time we go we want to walk down to the bottom but we didn't have the time (or the health) that day. We still got to enjoy a little picnic though :)
