Day 30: As we have been working our way through the month I've been trying to keep up with entries in my manhole cover journals, which came from Vernakular.com. These are actually covers that slip over a blank book and have an elastic closure. They came with a white lined paper booklet - but I replaced one with kraft paper and one with black paper. The also have door mats of manhole covers. Super cool, HERE.
Yesterday I went to a rubber stamp show - it's been a long time since I've attended one. I always come home and mark up my new stamps - do you do that too? I visited the vending table of my friend Seth Apter and got some of his stamps and a stencil - I think they will be perfect for my manhole journals. You can find Seth's product line HERE. Click around - he's got a lot of stuff! It was great to see Ted at his Stampers Anonymous mobile shop - he gives a great demo, much fancier then when I used to do it for SA back in the day.
A few more fun finds this week....I scored a pendant of a cover from Prague (from Etsy), and some mini-manholes meant for train sets. These are smaller than dimes. So cute - had to have them. More model train manhole decals are on the way - gotta have them for my journal, right? Everything is cute in tiny form.
And this wood frame is by Seven Gypsies - looks like the voids are asking to be filled with covers. Found at Hobby Lobby. Might try some paper casting for this.
I will be talking more about stamps tomorrow - be sure to tune in. It will be our last day, can you believe it?
