Rubber stamp carving

This past weekend I was lucky enough to have family come and visit. What that usually means is that my awesome 9 year-old niece insists that I teach her a new book structure.

This time, however, she wanted to carve a rubber stamp. I led a stamp carving activity at her birthday party in November. I guess she liked it.

Niece carving a rubber stamp

She’s fearless with the carving tools, while I keep freaking out whenever she’s pointed toward her hand. I try to keep my studio a blood-free zone. Luckily, there were no injuries resulting from the activity. 🙂

It makes me feel so good that my niece is interested in my work and wants to learn from me. Maybe she’ll end up as a bookbinder too…


So what do you think? I'd love to know!
