As a mom of three under three, sometimes life can have its minor challenges. There have been times where the baby is throwing food on the wall and floor, the other two are throwing their food at each other, food is burning, the hot water just went cold and the phone won’t stop ringing. Sometimes I grab my phone or my camera and take a picture of the ensuing chaos. More often than not, my stress is replaced with laughter. When I think about how I felt at that exact moment, the typical “Life IS Good” or “Remember This” stamp really does not genuinely reflect these crazy, silly, messy moments.
So, I visited rubberstamp.net and made this “Hot Mess” stamp. It is one my favorite silly phrases to describe slightly out-of-control moments. This phrase makes me laugh every time I say it and I absolutely LOVE that I was able to make a custom stamp capturing an expression that I use to describe moments in my circus of a life. So one of my Project Life vignettes will most likely include some combination of the journal cards shown (I just had to show the journal cards I made using paper from Glitz Basics Collection from a few years back.
Back to Rubberstamp.net— This site is one of several online retailers offering custom stamps at a reasonable price. I created my stamp in Microsoft Publisher (although any editing program will work), saved it as a .jpg file and uploaded the .jpg to the ordering page. There are different sizes to choose from and I ordered the ½ by 1 ½ unmounted rubber stamp for 3.95 USD. A wood mounted stamp is extra. What a great way to personalize YOUR favorite words or phrases! Have a great weekend.
