Objects old, vintage, hand made or upcyled, and old techniques with a modern twist

This lovely wooden box of letter (and number) stamps was a lucky find at a car boot sale last year- the set only cost 50 pence and didn’t appear to have even been used!

So far I have only used the stamps to label a couple of Christmas gift tags, so hope to come up with a few more uses for them, starting with a spot of printing on fabric.

One advantage of only having my current craft stash to use this year (see my crafty New Year’s Resolution for 2016) is that I have started taking a good look at what I already have, rather than being distracted by shiny new purchases. I have actually felt a little uncomfortable coming across a few lovely items (like this one) that I have hardly used, and hope that I will be able to rectify this over the coming year.

I’m looking forward to stamping my mark on some new projects…!

  1. How neat! I love finding little purchases like that. And I also find things in my craft stash that are embarassingly unused… So I can relate!
