Tick Tock Vintage Clocks

So I read up a little on Tick Tock, the crocodile from the famous story Peter Pan. (I can't help but think of him whenever someone says tick tock.) "Long ago, Peter Pan cut off Captain Hook's left hand and fed it to the Crocodile. The Crocodile thought it was so delicious that he wanted to eat the rest of Captain Hook. This led Tick Tock to follow the wicked pirate wherever he went. Luckily for Hook, however, the crocodile swallowed an alarm clock, allowing Hook to hear him coming. Tick Tock plays an important role in defeating Captain Hook." Wouldn't it be nice to have a crocodile on your side, especially one that you could hear coming?


The Craft's Meow


I am not really sure how Nina does it, but each of her sets, month after month, for The Craft's Meow, are simply amazing. I started with the grandest image in Vintage Clocks, the grandfather clock, turned the stamp backwards and stamped the clock in a trio of fall-ish colors. Then I came back to stamp the right side of the clock on top of the ink I just put down, and finished the series with a separate punched stamped clock face.

After a short, unexpected break, The Craft's Meow is coming back with a bang to showcase sets from the September Release, we'll have showcases each day this week! Be sure to stop by the blog to comment for your chance to win Vintage Clocks.
