Jewish Itty-Bitties

I don't know about you, but every so often I get this mad urge to carve little itty-bitty stamps. How small can I carve? An inch? A half inch? Smaller?? How much out of my scrap bag can I use up? (With Webfoot not producing any more white grade A for a bit, we may all be using up our scraps, eh?)

Today I'm featuring some itty-bitties that have a Jewish flavor. All of these little guys are an inch or smaller. This first one says Shalom in Hebrew with a sweet little dove.


This next one is the Israeli flag...but you didn't need to have me tell you that, huh? I always struggle with those little openings inside the star, especially when it's so small!


This last one is the Tree of Life or Eitz Chaim in Hebrew.



So, break out that scrap bag and get to carvin' some itty-bitties! You can use them in so many ways; on the back of LTCs, for mini-sig stamps, cooties and hitchhikers, micro traditional boxes...you name it!

I'll be posting more in the days to come. It just makes me want to go carve more itties! Oh, and by the way, that is my scrawly handwriting...I didn't carve those letters! lol!

I'm partial to little things . . . these are so very cute.

(LinkWithin is doing a great job sticking to this theme.)

How 'bout a "Using Up Our Scraps While We Wait for More PZCut" LTC swap? ;-)

You've inspired me to carve some itty bitties! I love the 'eitz chaim' - haven't seen that one before. :o)

If you get a chance to pick up the most recent Style 1900 magazine (has something about Mackintosh Kitchens on front), it has a great article about Jewish antiques.
