Stamp Art

At Nod, we believe your home should be a celebration of family. We'll be featuring our Managing Director, Michelle, at home celebrating her own family with recipes, crafts and décor created by our friend Sweet Paul

When I was a boy I loved to make presents for my parents.  My parents had very good taste so I had to be very careful with my projects to make sure they would be fit to display in our house.  Often times, if I made a less than amazing present, the project would end up being displayed in MY room instead of the livingroom!  This stamp art project would surely have earned me a prized spot in our house if I made it for my dad for Father’s Day!
