Clarity Stamps
Tina's Henna Dangles
Hello again and welcome to 'The Making Lady's' blog. This name came about when I used to volunteer at my old school and spend many hours each week teaching Art and Craft to two classes of five, six and seven year olds'. They had the use of many of my various crafting accoutrements and it all began as whilst on a visit, I discovered few could use scissors with confidence. We all looked forward to the 'Making Hours' and it was great teach and interact with small groups - a luxury I never experienced as a teacher. 
These are examples using the stamps Barbara demonstrated today on Hochanda.
