Sarah Bewick of Stamp Addicts presented their all-new line-up of seasonal stamps just in time to craft and create for Easter!
I always enjoy watching Sarah and the lovely Hochanda TV hosts interact during each new episode. Sarah does a wonderful job of teaching new craft concepts and always has something interesting like the shrink eggs and butterflies!
She was wearing a darling fuschia flower ring made from shrink plastic! What a novel idea! I’m totally going to do this! I love making jewelry, and even more so from novel materials and concepts. Perfect for Spring!
The metallic shrink eggs would have made fun necklaces, earrings, bracelets and pins! What a great family craft to do with the kids!
To watch the show rewind or purchase these stamps:
If you are ordering from outside of the UK, international shipping rates and times apply.
These would make great additions to your littles Easter baskets. My kids would rather have fun activites to do and stay busy than just about anything else. Plus, it’s a great family activity, too! You can make cards for parents, grandparents, family and friends.
These stamps are great for all kinds of other projects, too!
On September 22, 2020, the 28th Birthday of Stamp Addicts, I made a Very Special appearance on Hochanda TV for the celebratory show!
It was Extra Specially Special for me because September 21 was my birthday (huge grin)!
How awesome is that!
Somewhere out in Midwest Indiana, in the middle of hay and corn fields, I sat on an old white wooden porch swing, held up my iphone, smiled wide and tried not to forget what it was I was trying to remember while I worked hard to hold the phone steady and film. While the bugs sang and whirred in the background, it took me about 20 tries to get it right without forgetting everything I was trying to squeeze into a clip of under two minutes.
Well, I did it in one!
I uploaded the clip to Wetramsfer (I think that was it) and sent it off.
I was still pretty surprised to see it on the September 22 show on Hochanda, even though I knew it was going to be on there. There ´ s something rather surreal about seeing yourself talking to yourself from the tv screen.
Even though I had been very apprehensive about making videos, it gave me the confidence and basic know-how to create videos for my own Facebook coloring and crafting group – Sherry West Art Coloring and Crafting. I was honestly afraid before that.
This lovely card is a representation of what I am grateful for.
It was colored and created by my very talented friend and Design Team member, Marnie Schagunn, using my stamp image.
I have a real live, bonafide “Design Team” of lovely talented coloring and cardmaking ladies who are in the process of making my images look good, my images are being turned into rubber stamps by a small UK stamp company and have been shown on tv not only once, but will be twice in less than two months, my book is being published and coming out in print soon (so excited!), I’ve met so many wonderful people in these new endeavors who have shown me so much patience, support and help, and I have a loving caring supportive husband who puts up with all of my shenanigans and three great hilarious kids, health (more or less, depends on what day of the week it is and if all the stars, moons and planets line up right), and faithful friends who put up with me and hang in there, whether I deserve it or not.
I’m counting my blessings!
I’m not making much money (barely covering the Etsy shop fees, but, hey, that counts!) but I get to be a real live working artist and book author!
And, my art and coloring skills are actually getting better, slowly, but anything is an improvement! How much better does it get?
(Btw, please forgive me me if I sound like I’m bragging. I’m honestly not. I’m just very sincerely appreciative of these wonderful opportunities and all the dear people that are in my life.)
