Oddish Creations





I tell you all with complete conviction, I eagerly look forward to each month's sample submission from Oddish Creations! Kata has made me a total hand carved stamp addict! She carved the lovely Phat Fiber stamp you all see on your boxes (and even above here on the blog!) for me and I have not stopped shopping for stamps! There is such a huge difference between commercial rubber stamps and hand carved ones ( for me, anyway). I've been exposed to rows upon rows of wood mounted commercial stamps and have never seen anything that made me want to collect them or use them more than one or two times. Now, I have all of these ideas I want Kata to put into stamp form for me: goats, bunnies, owls.
Her yarn is stunning as well! I just peeked into her shop and that kumquat laceweight is telling me it wants to come live with me. My problem right now is finishing some projects so I can squeeze more yarn in my bin and still be able to close it!
Speaking of projects- how nifty are her pattern keeper magnets? And who else thinks her tiny sock yarn stitch markers are some of the prettiest/cutest ones you've ever seen?!
Visit a little shop of happiness today- you'll probably find something you really need!
Thank you so so much Kata for contributing to the box. We all love you and and your shop!

I was lucky enough to have her as swap partner one time. It was the "rub my lamp" swap, where you find a bottle, rub it, make your wishes and wait for the genie to get back to you. ;) Kata was my genie. I ask for shinies and she provided! I love the markers she made for me. :D

I love the little hand carved ball of yarn stamp that I got in my April box, as well as the superwash merino sample. Such a beautiful colour and great name for a colourway (Poisoned Apple)!

I'm lucky enough to be Kata's BFF! Of course, I love all her goodies, but she doesn't send ME any samples! Drat! I'm currently knitting the Go Fly a Kite shawl with some laceweight she dyed in gorgeous floral colors. Just love it! Now, who else wants Kata to start dying rovings? Mememe!!!

I was so bummed not to find one of those cute little rubber stamps in my box.

KAV said...

The fact that she takes wood and turns them into those detailed stamps amazes me!!!
I just ordered some custom letters and can't wait to get them to stamp away.
