Aren't they grand?
I paid $18 for the entire bag. When first I saw them, I was on them like a fox to a chicken. But then I debated. Eighteen dollars? That's seemed steep for a bag of stamps. But there are hundreds... literally hundreds... of stamps. Some are names. There's John and Mary and George. Most are animals. I think there's bird, hen, rooster, chick, chicken and owl. And that's just in the fowl category.
There's food, too: bread, cheese, egg, milk, meat. And then there are places. Places like home, school and church.
You know that stamping/scrapbooking company Stampin' Up? (My friend Lacy is really into them and makes the sweetest cards. I keep all of them.) Well, these are like old-school Stampin' Up. More like stampin' back, I guess.
But oh, I think they are great. I've already dreamed up dozens of ways to use them. For cards, of course, and Christmas tags and household labels and little notes. Can't wait to get started.
Yep, it's the simple things, you know? It's skipping the mall and the predictable movies and spending eighteen dollars on a sack of stamps that I'll keep and use forever. That's where it's at, if you ask me.
Huh. Wonder if I can find the stamps to make a card saying that? [Smile]
