Cheers to the 5th traveling stamp participant — Adrienne Antonson of STATE. Do y’all remember her Lovely Lady feature? It’s one of my favs, to this day. SO…. Can you even believe how hard she knocked this project out of the park? I literally screamed when I got the images!!

Her thoughts:
“As a life long pen-pal, I love anything that comes in the mail! And mail that you can make things out of — even better! Emma’s traveling stamp project had me at hello and I could not wait for it to arrive in my mailbox. Being the first East coast recipient of the traveling stamp, I knew we had to do something big. So making an entire stamped outfit seemed like a no-brainer. The whole STATE team got involved and shared in the messy fun. We made stamped linen pants, a smock, and a silk head scarf. And honestly, we could have kept stamping for days.”

“As a professional maker, it’s easy to get in a creative rut. So to have a project that was purely for fun was such a welcome change. It was inspiring to think of all the ladies before us who used the stamp, and we were thrilled to be continuing the chain. I’m excited to see where the little stamp goes next and what it makes!”

Don’t forget to follow along on Instagram & Twitter with the hashtag #travelingstamp. We are documenting the mailing, making, and finished products for your Enjoyment, wink*



PLUS >> !!! We loved the stamped smock so much, we’ve added it to the STATE online shop. There is only the ONE available ( update: SOLD OUT ) so make sure to snag it quick if you’re interested. I have a red STATE smock & am obsessed. It’s the perfect layering piece that goes with just about anything.
