Hello oddies, Ellen here!!

Today I have a special tutorial for you; how to clean your stamps. The next pictures explain it step by step:

1. What do you need? One bowl with one drop of dishwashing liquid (don’t take too much soap!).  Another bowl with just clean water.  Your dirty stamps and some paper towels.

2. Take your stamps and let them soak for a few minutes in water with dish soap. After that you can rub some more ink of your stamps with your fingers (be careful for your sentiment stamps).

3. The next step is to put them in the bowl with water to wash off the soap.

4. Let them air dry on the paper towel. They are not only completely clean, but the stamps will stick better too on acrylic block.  Depending on the ink you use, there may always be some staining, but it will not impact the quality of the image!

Easy peasy!  Dishwashing liquid is very gentle on stamps and is a very safe way to clean them.  Plus you can bang out a whole bunch of stamps at once if you have a tendency to stamp and stick them right back in the package!  (Or, if you’re OCD like many people, you clean them immediately after stamping before putting them away!)

Happy ODDtoberfest, Oddies!  We hope to see you in the Facebook Community, where there are lots of fun challenges going on!  OH!  And remember to sign up for our newsletter so you’re always the first to get all the biggest and latest Some Odd Girl news!

Hello, Oddies, and happy stinkin’ FRI-YAY to you all!

We are thrilled the weekend has arrived, we have been having a TON of fun in the Facebook Community for ODDtoberfest (we celebrated Kristy‘s birthday on Monday and there’s a party going on!) and we hope you’ll join us throughout the month as the festivities continue!

Leah here, and I want to take a quick moment to encourage you all to EMBRACE THE ODD!  I know it’s not always easy to be the one who acts differently, or looks different, or likes things nobody else seems to like.  I’ve always been one to go against the grain, and recently I took a look in the mirror to find a quirky, blonde 41-year-old Leah staring back at me.  And I realized I love this me, just the way she is! 

So, today, for every single ODDIE following this blog, or stumbling by for a little word of encouragement and support, I SALUTE YOU!  Happy Friday!

Hi all, it’s Anna Sigga here today!

I love coloring all those cute lil’ images that have a dress-up kinda feature to them and this darling Lady Bug Tia digi stamp is one of my faves.  And what little miss doesn’t love to don wings and a cute boingy headband?!

I love how the red stands out against the cool greys and of course I just had to add a bit of glitter and flowers.
