until somebody lost an eye.
February 13, 2006 in Stamps | Permalink
Lyn, I missed this one - very funny. Love your Gocco work. Have you been checking out what other inks and things you can use? (Was reading that somewhere this morning, so I'm pretending I know all about it!)
I bought a great book today called 'Costume Dolls' (1964), it says there's a craft shop at 12 Magdalen Street, called J L Standeven. You could pop there later!!

Oh no! It's the worst when somebody loses an eye. Such a buzz kill. It's a good thing he's a cute little bugger to make up for that lost eye. Plus I bet he could make up a good tale as to how he lost it :).
Isn't carving those things addictive? I think so! Watching the bits coil up and fall away is sort of mesmerizing.

Blimey, you can tell them it'll end in tears but cute things wil be cute things... and BOY are they cute things!
I'm thinking a pirate patch would be a very attractive addition, I had one for a lazy eye when I was 5 and loved it.

What are you using to make stamps? gonks? linoleum? biscuits?
I'd like to give it a try but things that require patience tend to be beyond me.

It's really cute ! I'd like to try too !
What sort of ink can I use ?
Nice work and sorry for the teddy bear's eye !

Your little characters are so cute. The one that lost the eye made me laugh.

Did you read the Christopher Brookmyre book of the same name???
Looks like great fun despite the lost eye!

Ay! Did you make these stamps? You are amazing. I am particularly fond of the elephant.

Still sweet even if he has only one eye.

As my nephew says, " it's all fun and games until someone gets hurt, then its hilarious." Love the stamps!

I guess he didn't see that coming then?
(and I think I may have just woken Bella up by laughing out loud!)

Nothing that a little pencil top eraser couldn't fix, eh?
Aborable as always.

Could you stitch him up a little eye patch? I think he'd look quite dashing....
February 14, 2006 at 02:11 AM
You know, you could always carve a plaster stamp and fix it... :-)

Is this Gocco? I have been wanting one so badly... but scared about the future inavailability of supplies. I am wondering what Gocco owners plan to do then -- is there some way to rig something up so you can keep using it? What do you think?

hee hee, how cute.
February 14, 2006 at 05:14 PM
Oh, dear - they said it would all end in tears! I think the eye patch would look quite fetching, though ;>)
What adorable li'l rascals!
February 14, 2006 at 06:01 PM
Just pretend she's winking!
They are all so stinkin' cute!
February 14, 2006 at 08:59 PM
Oh no, someone put his eye out! Mom told him that would happen.
