What do you do with the wood from your stamps?

I peel the rubber stamps off the wood blocks they came on.  I find it much easier to store them, and use them without the wood attached and getting in the way.  =)
I was looking at the last one i took off, and wondering what to do with it:

Then i realized it would make a great drawer knob for the new desk i built.  Well its not a new desk, the top is old and salvaged, and the supports are new.  One side holds 4 drawers and the other 3 shelves.

What do you do with your stamp wood?

I made some wire hooks for my new outdoor tree ornaments.

I haven't blogged in ages.  Just thought you may enjoy seeing how I spent some time last night making hooks for my outdoor tree decorations.  I made a few while relaxing watching a movie.  I will try to make a few each evening, thus not getting bored and keeping my creativity fresh.

Before I added the curls, I closed each end with a small loop for safety.  No scratches from bare wire.

I just curled the wire into big curls.  Sometimes turning them around and curling again.

All done and ready to hang.
