Rebecca Garland

My little sister is adopted from China, we adopted her when she was 16 months old, she turns 12 this december, going to big school in september! We are always looking for little ox things for her (and year of the pig for our other adopted sister). I would love to be able to give her the ox stamp, she would absolutely love it, it would be perfect for her handmade cards :-p please count us in the give-away. Rebecca


Love the calendar! So cute! Do you mind if I ask you your source for the tiny calendars? I've look, but I can't find them. Thanks!


Just stopping by to check in to see what you've been up to. The pic of your girls on the porch is so sweet! And I'm in love with the Ox. I need to buy one now. Wishing you a wonderful start to your new year!


Love your ideas!!!!Cute!!!!
Happy New Year!


The ox stamp is unbelieveable cute!!! I do understand wonderful winters. I'm in Florida! This is my first time visiting your blog and I love it!

Gosh, I don't know if you are still accepting comments for the give-away so here goes...
Your Ox stamp is really cute! I really like your projects most especially the little girl made from punches. I'll have to try that technique. Thank you!


you've way inspired me to make the punch people, I have been inspired for hair styles from the Mii part of Wii - check them out, Thanks to you! www.littlestampsbiglife.blogspot.com


Such cute projects!! The ox is adorable! I absolutely love your sweet little punched girl!!! :D So fun!


We are having a year of the Ox baby! It would be so great to use your stamps for the announcment and favors, etc!
Thanks so much for doing a giveaway! Love it!

That little ox is SO cute! He has a look of mischief about him for sure. And the little girls are darlings too! I'm so glad I ran across a link to your blog via the AMuse webpage! You've been bookmarked!

Jen Duncan

Looks like maybe I DIDN'T comment here! Hmmm... I think it was cuz I couldn't decide which was cuter, the calendars or the smiling girls, and then something shiny walked by and I forgot altogether. Live to be 50, you'll see!!

Michelle M White

Thanks...now I'm obsessed with making "punch" girls! You always have the CUTEST ideas! The little ox is selling like crazy at the store. Lot's of people are using him for Valentines cards. Will you be at CHA?


I love your site and craft ideas! Blessings....Julie


I love that Chinese New Year Stamp....too bad you didn't make one for the Year of the Rat. I would have bought that in a second...I'm a Rat. :) You should make a set of all twelve animals. It would totally rock, because you make the cutest things.

Sandra Tsiu

Gung Hay Fat Choy! I would love this stamp set to use to decorate my goodie bags for the Chinese New Year Presentations at school. Wonder if AMUSE has any of the other zodiac animals? Found your website while trolling for good ideas and you have many of them. Keep up the good work!


Man I want those stamps! The ox is darling and I so want him to come live at my house. Your wood stamping was a great inspiration for me. Thanks for being such an inspiring and generous crafter.


Happy Birthday, fellow Januaryana!!! I love the stamp!!!!

Michelle M

That little ox is through the roof cute! But how clever making people with punches!?!? Her pigtails are darling!


OMG. You've made the cutest things with little Ox Dude! LOVE them, Missy! Oh, and look at the girls on the front porch . . . you're making me dream of summer, here in the dead of winter up in WA state! *grin* Julie


I'm so jealous of your weather! We had snowfall in totals that put it taller than me (which is either a comment about my shortness or the ridiculous weather--I'm not sure which). Love the little ox!

Cris on the Canadian Prairies

I think you'd be secretly jealous of the cold, crisp winter air (makes you feel *alive*!) and all the lovely snow and winter birds feeding near out window. ;-)

I would *love* to win one of your projects! Thanks for this giveaway!!!

Good luck with all your b-day party plans!

Love that ox stamp!! I might have to stop by Michael's for a wood thing to make my own rendition.. hrm!


I've just stumbled across your site and I love all the stuff I've seen so far.
The ox stamp is adorable! I love how you've incorporated it into both of the calendars. And I really like the use of shape punches to create the sweet little girl on the second one. Simple idea, with very cute and creative results!
Take care, and happy new year to you and your family :)

I love the stamp...I hope I win...hand waving in the air....being a little rude...waving wildly now...okay...I will be better behaved. I really do wish I could live in your blog. Hang out...look at all the awesome creations....maybe even use a few when no one is looking...what fun!

Happy Birthday to you and your husband. Just a heads up: I turned 40, got married and had a baby...just when I thought life was calming down. :) :) :) But it has been great. Better than 20 or 30.

I'm totally envious of the California weather!


Love the ice cream truck in January! I lived in So. Cal when I was little and loved to get the ice cream shaped like a foot with the gumball in the big toe. Nobody else remembers them, though!

Erin L.

The calendars are adorable!!!!

I like the cute ox stamp- as a kindergarten teacher I'm always looking for age-appropriate (non-scary!) items that my students can enjoy and craft with- your stamps are wonderful!

Thanks for offering such a great giveaway, and Happy New Year!
