Hankeshi longing

One of the things I am really missing in my life at the moment is the lack of crafty activities taking place. By the end of the day, I feel like I both lack the energy and imagination to make pretties. But yesterday I had a deep yearning to get out my hankeshi kit and make some stamps. It's going to be first on the list when I get some free time!

Hankeshi are also known as 'eraser' stamps - you hand carve them out of rubber, ink them up and then stamp away.

Here is some inspiration in the meantime.

Love Asian Taste makes the above stamps - aren't the large seal ones beautiful?

Sakura Days makes a pretty expert stamp - I love those flowers, but the curly hair looks waaay too advanced for me.

Only 3.75 weeks!


  1. Those flowers are really, really nice!

  2. Aren't they delightful? I am itching to get my kit out and try them, but I'll have to wait... Glad you like them :)
