Once in a while you find something as a craftster that is a one off, you know you can make some amazing stuff from it and that you'll be lucky to find anything like it again.

That was how I felt when I found this in a skip outside a big office block. Who knows what it was? a part of an escalator/ lift perhaps:


Its just over a quater inch thick rubber. It had been cut into strips but there was loads of it, strips and strips some pieces a foot wide and a couple of meters long. My craft stash is getting silly I have too much stuff I'm hoarding so I thought I wont be greedy and go silly I'll take just a little bit and come back if I want more. Today I checked to see if it was still there and they had emptied the bins!

I've wanted to try making my own stamps for ages. Its Friday night and I'm home alone *gasp* so I thought I'd kill some time by carving a stamp. It is lovely rubber to carve, really easy.



I need to put a wooden block on the back, but it works. I am kicking myself so hard about not taking more.

Thats how we get hooked. We don't buy, or pick up something, then of course we need it. Next time we do buy pick up save etc. Now my house is full. But I do enjoy, best of luck.
I am not much into skulls(I'm old), but you did a great job
