    mmm those chips look delicious, i'm a sucker for home made chips!
    oh ella, i love how artistic and creative you are i wish i was more like you.
    no way, did you hand carve that stamp yourself? i remember doing things like that at school and it was so hard, yours looks perfect. i need some of that, it would be awesome for packaging and such.
