    Super Ideen! Könnt Ihr nicht mal Stempel mit solchen Buchstaben kreieren, wie ihr sie auf euren Schürzen habt??? Und wenn es geht, gleich noch eine Form / mould dazu! Würde ich sofort bestellen. Es gibt hier so eine weiche Gießform von Stamperia, sie ist überall ausverkauft. Ich kann hier leider kein Foto einfügen. Aber ihr könnt es auf YouTube bei LaBlanche im letzten Livestream vom 25.01.21 sehen.
    Bleibt so kreativ wie ihr seid, damit wir noch viele tolle Sachen von euch sehen können!
    Ganz liebe Grüße,
