Daiso, how I love you. Down in the International District across from Uwajimaya on the corner of 6th Ave S and S Lane St, it’s the local Japanese “100 yen” store. Like our dollar stores, it’s packed full of knicknacks and I can never leave without something little that I didn’t plan on getting… like this pack of erasers, for example, at which yesterday during the First Thursday artwalk I sat in my booth carving away to create new little stamps to decorate my envelopes. I think I need to go back and stock up!
I needed a “do not bend” stamp so I no longer have to write it out on everything. I also needed a centipede, housefly, flower, paintbrush/pencil, little girl and heart, planet, coffee cup, Kiki (the black cat) and Momo.
Here I am working on them at the show – photo taken by an awesome marketer of First Thursday Seattle.
Now to find other things I can stamp. Any of you create your own stamps? What have you decorated with them?
