My little stamp collection ~

Don't you think it's neat how you can tell what a person loves by the rubber stamps that they own? You can see clearly all of my favorite things just by looking in these few little drawers. I need to use these images more in my artwork ~ I do love them!! I have a few more that aren't photographed but they are mostly large alphabets . . .







I didn't have a very productive weekend in my artroom but hopefully today I can get back to creating art and tutorials!!
Wishing you a very happy Monday!
xxoo, Dawn

I love how your stamps are stored! It looks like Martha Stewart drawers?? I recognize several of the stamps since I used to be a Stampin' Up demo! You kept the best ones! You have a lovely collection!!

well, I used to work for Stampin' Up! corporate offices and I have a "little" stamps collection too! I got rid of all except the ones I really love, from SU! and other manufacturers and mine look similar to yours - guess we are are 2 birds of a feather! Love your storage system!

Great stamps Dawn! What kind of cabinets are those and where did you get them? I need something for my stamp as they are now jumbled in a suitcase... :) Jen R

Lovely stamps! I have a few, but have stopped buying them because of storage issues. I haven't been able to find a way that works for me, but I really like how you store yours and I think that may work for me. I'm always inspired in some way when I vist you... thank you!

You have some real beauties there!
I know how it feels , you may have lots of wonderful things but if you dont have ideas you feel all dried out.I usually go buy a wonderful magazine or two and get my creative juice going again.
Take care

These are all so pretty! You have good taste. And what fun to pick them up and make so many of the beautiful things you do with them.

Uh-oh. What does it say about me that I don't own any rubber stamps? I do own a pile of fabric, though!

LivingTheLife said...

OH MY! What a lovely "little" collection...that's kind of like saying the Golden Gate Bridge is just a little bridge! LOL! Seriously, I think I LOVE every stamp I saw...and believe it or not I have a few of the same ones...I especially LOVED the partial clock one in the top or second picture...btw what storage container do you have those in...I LOVE it... I need so desperately to become better organized...maybe if I found a little storage diddy like yours...I could do it! Well, I could give it a try.

Thanks for sharing...I just think I would love to come to your house for a week...and play with all your treasures...I would be in heaven!

Blessings...

I see stamps there that I have too! No surprise ;) I also keep mine in a shallow drawer. Oh, and your ballet shoe pin cushions are so very beautiful!

What a great rubber stamp collection you have there! I'm so glad to see someone else with hoardes of them...LOL! I'm also glad to see I'm not the only one who still has the "old fashion" rubber ones with the wood backing. I haven't quite moved into the acrylic stamps yet, but what a space saver they are, ay?

Sherry said...

You have an amazing collection of stamps Dawn, and yes, I agree...I think what we collect, no matter what the object, it is a true reflection of "who" we are.
