My mail may be affected by the bombing situation in Austin. I'm assuming security will be very high and things are going to be slow. Last year we picked up the new sofa from the FedEx that was bombed. We are staying out of Austin for a while. Scary stuff!

That is indeed scary! I hope the person(s) responsible get caught soon! Stay safe!

They think the bomber managed to blow himself up, so that particular problem should be calming down soon.  Ugh.  Good luck!

My last card to create for this month is Hand Cut Stamp. Here is a pic of my potato stamp drying on my gas heater so I can go back and do more detailed cutting.
Potato stamps are a tremendous lot of fun. But it is hard to get deep detail. Luckily, I have a large bag of highly sprouted, inedible potatos that will become more stamping opps before I plant the eyes.

it did not come out perfectly but the imperfection actually makes it much more interesting than a pristine image. I wish I did not have to chuck the stamp after use!

This might be verging on the ridiculous, but I wonder if you could seal the cut edge with something like wax, and plant the whole piece?

Whatever happened to the ongoing hoopla swaps?

No need to seal the cut side, if it's dried out a bit you can just plant the silly thing. That's what folks do with potatoes, cut chunks so that each chunk has an eye or two, let then cut sides dry or seal themselves for a couple of days and then plant the pieces. You get more potato plants that way. Hmm, I wonder if all the potatoes would have a mysterious stamp shape on them?Huh?

I'm just getting back to town and have some cards to post. The dh didn't get my mail out with everything going on. I rescued the cards from his car and sent them the other day. My last cards of the month are ready to go now. Caught up!

Don't forget...Tomorrow is

Easter Fools Day!

btw, I think this is my brother. I have this exact photo in my old albums.

I made sure to use only parts of the pO tA tO (boil 'em mash 'em stick 'em in a stew) that had no eyes, Thus planting those bits, I think, would yield nothing.
