Stamps stamps stamps!

Sorry I've been 'absent' from blogging the past few days.. I've been WORKING! OMG, did I admit that? hehe.. yes, I work.. in fact I work tooooooo much! I sat down last week and figured out that I currently work 120 hours a week! Yep.. work-a-holic. Not healthy, not sane and not fun, but that's what it takes to keep the shop running and get stamps made. Anyhoo.. I just wanted to post some pics of things I bet none of you have ever seen before! Below is my hard work for the past 2 days! That's right... 2 whole days of stamp making.. my hands and shoulders are killin me.... check it out!
Specimen #1:
This is about 50-60 plates of stamps uncut
Specimen #2:
This is after about 2 hours of cutting...

Specimen #3:
This is after 3 hours of cutting... Finally I'm done.

I'd estimate there's about 300-350 stamps there... maybe a little less but not by much. I'll know more when I get them packaged.. another 3-4 hours and they'll be ready for a home. :) So.. now you know what I've done for the past 2 days.. what about you??

.... YIKES.

Man, I go insane just trying to mount my UM rubber -- cutting all that would definitely send me over the edge. Now I totally understand how you get so swamped!
