#carveDecember: Days 21-24

It’s got really busy with preparation for Christmas and doing art. I am bravely keeping up with #carveDecember. Until now I haven’t missed a single day and I plan to keep it that way until the end of the year. Here are the stamps 21-24; the light is bad again – these days we don’t see the sun at all, so even during the day it’s not possible to make a decent photo. Besides, I carve the stamps usually early in the morning or in late afternoon, so it’s the lamp light for photos. I will make a video once the month is complete, so I hope to capture them all in better light.

Anyway… The first one is a garbage stamp, double-sided, of course:

The second one is the same:

And then I decided I need another snowflake. It was a bit difficult to carve those thin bits, but I am rather happy how it turned out. I am still on that same defective piece of rubber, you can see that it does not stamp perfectly.

And the fourth one I carved today. This is the last piece of that same rubber and here it looks fine, probably I carved out all the bad parts. This was quite time-consuming to carve, but I am really happy with it.

That’s it for today’s post. We will be preparing a nice dinner (Mother is just putting the meat to roast). I made a carrot cake yesterday. Christmas is one of rare occasions for baking cakes (the other two being New Year and two birthdays). When the meat is done, we will put our dinner in front of the TV and watch Netflix until we can’t keep our eyes open. And yes, we will also drink a bottle of champagne and get a bit tipsy. That’s the big plan for tonight!

I wish you all a Merry Christmas!
