how does one make their own stamps?

I want to eventually design my own stamps, but do not really know how to go about doing that. Can anyone enlighten me? Do I need to spend a ton of money on machinery to allow me to make my own stamps or is there a better way?

So, my Cricut Expression came in yesterday and I haven't even gotten it out of the box yet. I know, how horrible!! LOL I need to clean out my craft closet, make cookies, look for a job, do laundry, you get the idea... then I can have some time to play with it.

I am intrigued by the Sure Cuts a Lot software for the Cricut though. I am thinking I NEED it, because it allows you to cut ANY truetype font that you have, and do I have fonts!! I am downloading the trial version to see if I like it, and then when I get a job, I will probably buy it!

Meeting with Career Counselor

I have a meeting with my career counselor from Keller today to help me find a job. Yesterday, I hosted Stamp Club at my place, it was a lot of fun. We made cards and since I was the hostess, I got the Stampin' Up hostess credit! I ordered Owl Together Now as my club order, and for free I got the Top Note die cutter for the Sizzix and a stamp set, can't remember the name of it right now, but it is a level 1 hostess set with a bunch of different little sayings.

I ordered the Cricut Expression, which I am anxiously, and not very patiently waiting on, before I remembered I had a bid on eBay for a Sizzix BigKick, so I had to buy the Top Note die! I can't wait to be able to play with this new stuff!:) Lucky I had money in PayPal from selling some stuff, so I could get some new goodies!:)
