Great price, lucky you!  But I really had to say that I love your HalfLife background! I saw that and started laughing, thats awesome! At first I read the title and thought you were making a HL2 stamp.

The one I got was the last one there. I even went to the main clearance area to see if there were more.
The HL2 is my mousepad, it's actually my husband's. I'd make him a stamp (probably Dog) but I doubt he'd ever use it.

Love it.  I've been carving mostly on those big "for big mistakes" erasers.  But, they aren't satisfying to do - although they take acetone transfers a bit better than anything else I've tried.

I handcarve stamps, knit and have organic catnip.

I've had my first stamp carving dream. I think I had a good idea for a new stamp but I don't remember what it was.

Edit:  Quick question:  Anyone have a good inkpad brand to recommend?  I've been using office type inkpads, and the not so intense color is driving me up the wall!
Tsukino - I believe is the maker name- Stazon! Amazing ink for everything.
7 Gypsies- walnut ink- great brown tone
Marvy - pretty good ink also
Speedball- printing ink for linoleum-comes in water and oils bases

Thanks - I may try the Walnut ink - I need something to age the stamps!  (I've also been stamping with cheap acrylic paint - it fills in the cracks/grooves too easily.)

I've also had a stamp carving dream.  I was shopping for speedy-carve (thank you, small town, and not having anything else), and came across a giant block of it.  I really need to go online and check out the different sizes/suppliers.
