fatigue + stamps = tragedy

Work, school, and wearing boots has taken a toll on my stamp making. I crave to carve whenever I am sitting in class, in the office, or limping to my car, but the moment I get home, I want to die from sheer exhaustion. Nevertheless, I cranked out these babies last night. Though it was slightly fun, the outcome was disastrous. As I have heard, the symptoms of fatigue are similar to that of being drunk. I've never been drunk, but I know that my coordination and patience was lacking. Here is the destruction:

Sad Stamps


On a brighter note, my class was canceled tonight, which means more time+more energy. And when you add that to the tons of doodles that I did at work, oh boy, the combination could be redeeming, if you know what I mean. Also, I received my second pea coat! When I am not so weary, I will post pictures. :D

Note: the original title of this blog was "fatgiue + stamps = poop," but my husband didn't like it. :)

I think they are super cute!
And I have to disagree with your dear husband: I like "fatgiue + stamps = poop"... it might be a girl/nerd thing. He wouldn't understand. :)

(It made me laugh just imaging you actually carrying a set of knives and erasers, and start carve stamp as soon as you get in the car or the bus ... funny scene!)

I don't know...that monkey is pretty awesome, despite the shrunken limb. Actually, the shrunken limb makes him more "believable" for me. Seriously, I dig him.

Oh...and never be ashamed of the word "poop"! :D

The missing-eye girl is really cute! She looks like the type of girl who sees the glass as half-full...because she can only see half of the glass. ;)

Haha! How simply adorable!! I love the stamps! And they have such character too! I totally know what you mean about being inspired all day long, and then being way too pooped for doing anything productive by the time I get home! SO sad!

But LOVE the stamps! Keep up the great work!! :)

I don't know why but the "shrunken limb" makes me laugh, although, if you had never pointed out the flaws, I would have thought they were perfect!
