Stamp Me Happy!

Thanks for all your kind words regarding my eventful evening yesterday. I still can't believe that happened to me! Fortunately, all was pretty much forgotten after Gossip Girl and ice cream. Did you love Gossip Girl? I think I need to watch it again because I was more focused on the clothes and accessories than the storyline. lol.

Anyways, back to this post. Back in July, Toronto-based calligrapher Barbara Kua posted about her customized calligraphy rubber stamps. Barbara recommended them as a cost effective way to incorporate handwritten calligraphy into the return address for wedding invitations or response envelopes.

Brilliant no? I decided I needed one ASAP with my address on it. I hemmed and hawed over Barbara's styles and finally decided on Ashley. Isn't she elegant yet sassy?


Barbara offers two types of rubbers stamps: 1) Self-Inking; and 2) Wood Handle (i.e. you can use it with different coloured stamp pads for variety). I went with the wood handle option.

Before I show you my stamp, I want to show you the cute little box it came in.......
.....wrapped in cute tissue paper....
Voila, my own address stamp!
Unfortunately, I can't show you how it stamps on paper because it has my address on it (and I don't want any stalkers). :(
Trust me though when I say it's awesome.

Barbara also included a note in her trademark calligraphy. A very sweet touch.

If you're interested in purchasing your own stamp (or as a gift for someone else, ahem, for your bridesmaids), email Barbara at info@barbarakua.com for more information. For those of you outside of Toronto, don't fret, Barbara can ship. Thanks Barbara for my awesome stamp!

My sister-in-law got an address stamp after their wedding. I love the idea and plan to treat myself once we're done with all the wedding chaos.
