"...The righteous are bold as a lion." (Proverbs 28:1) It brings my heart great joy that you are "proclaiming the kingdom of God and teaching about the Lord Jesus Christ with all boldness and without hindrance" (Acts 28:31) on your site. Way to go Rycrafts!

I will be so pleased to receive your emails... and I thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for your strong, true witness for our Lord and Savior. Thank you!!!
I own two of your stamps. They make a beautiful gift for shortbread lovers. Love your family story. I'm your sister in Christ.

"I thoroughly enjoyed browsing through your website. I was delighted to read your beautiful witness of your love for the Lord. Thank you for proudly sharing this, especially now when it seems more and more that Christianity is something to shy away from. May the Lord continue to shine through you as you serve Him.
P.S. I was given a cookie stamp as a gift from a preschool student many years ago. I so enjoy using it!"

Thank you for your email and your kind encouragement. And good luck making the Maple Leaf wreath... it helps to have more than one maple leaf stamp when you have to make so many castings... but one way to do it (if you only have one stamp) is to oil the stamp well so the pulp releases easily from the stamp, and instead of drying the casting right on the stamp, you carefully remove each casting (after patting dry thoroughly to get all the water out) using a sharp knife to peel the pulp off the stamp, and place the castings onto a cookie sheet to place in a slow oven to dry, or put them out in the sun.
Yes I have been wanting Robin to do the entire 12 days of Christmas for a long time, but he never seems to have time to fit it in... perhaps now that we have two part-time employees, he'll have more time to carve. I'll show him your email... it wouldn't be until next year. :)
Happy crafting, and
"Love the explanation of your faith put out for all to see. A brave move in today's business climates. Not nearly as courageous as what Jesus gave for all of us though, is it?
I've just placed my second order from Rycraft and look forward to receiving another beautiful stamp and paper kit; going to try to make Maple Leaf Wreaths; wish me luck! In looking thorough the Christmas stamps selection online, I saw a Partridge in a Pear Tree stamp. It'd be great to have all twelve days of Christmas available - either individually or as a set. Especially given what some believe the meanings to represent. Anyway, they'd be a fun thing to make with kids.
I noticed you've moved recently and am sure you're very busy. Hope much success continues to come your way.

So impressed that you are a Christian company who doesn't hide your light under a bushel. Praise the Lord for companies like yours!
Thank you for your email and your kind comments. Congratulations to your son for his accomplishments! We look forward to working on a custom stamp for his ceremony in June. Do send your artwork this month or next (a .jpg by email is good) and let Robin see what you have in mind so he can discuss it with you.
"I have been looking all over the web and came across several sites that will custom make a cookie stamp for me. I have no idea who to choose until i read your statement about being a Christian and being proud to claim it! That was it I have decided to go with you and hope that you can help me. I know you are not ready until after June 1 and I think that will be ok since my sons GMA ceremony will be in September. My son is part of Royal Rangers which is like boys scouts but through the church! GMA (Gold Medal of Achievement) is the highest award a boy can receive. It's harder to earn than an Eagle Scout from Boy Scouts! I'm very proud of his accomplishments and am hoping to make cookies with the royal ranger emblem and his name and GMA number on it as a favor. I look forward to being in touch after June 1.
Thank you so much for your email and for praying for us during this stressful time. The electrician thinks he found the problem; but we still don't have a solution -- looking for a kiln switch that will carry more amps and haven't found one yet. Robin did find a way to fire the kilns even with the malfunctioning switches so that they don't ruin the stamps, so we're making progress. :)
Yes, you need to fill out the license application here: http://www.cookiestamp.com/license_application
Just print the form, fill it out and mail it with your check....
We will be praying for you and especially for GODLY wisdom for your electrician, that he will find the problem. In the midst of all this I also pray that you do have a very BLESSED EASTER.
I need to know (I forgot all about this) if I need to send you $25.00 to sell cookies with your images on them. Please let me know. We do think your molds are so cute.
Congratulations on the BBC production filmed in Norway.
I sure would love to get to see that someday.
Blessings and Prayers,"
Hi Robin/Carol. Wow, what a great website. I have really enjoyed your story and love that you are proud to announce your faith in our Lord on your site!!!! Praise God ;) (Oh, and that you're Oregonians (or were until recently:() I was looking at stamps when the paw print came up and took me to you. I was hoping there was someone out there who could actually make me one. Glad to find that it is still possible. I didn't even know if folks still used them anymore. My husband and I remember mom and grandma using them....
