Personalized Postage Stamps

We don't qualify as mature adults right now. Jeff and I have been addicted to a video game  pretty much since the party. We've just managed to do minimal cleaning and cooking and the rest of the time is goofing off down in front of the game.

One of the few things I have managed to get done this month is to put together our latest winter newsletter. I don't get it done very often--maybe every couple of years--but I guess I was feeling like we've accomplished a lot and I wanted to share with the family (who don't follow the blog).

We checked with the post office for holiday stamps and all they had were boring santa ones. I wanted something wintery, and not too religious. The post office told us to buy online. We actually found some lovely options with period art we almost bought, but then I decided I would play around with the custom stamp.

You can basically design your own stamps and buy them from How fun is that? I just had to do it!
Too bad we cannot buy forever stamps, otherwise I would have bought a ton of them. Unfortunately, we use maybe 10 stamps a year, not including holiday letters. So, I only bought enough for this particular mailing. I didn't calculate the premium I paid; it's possible I don't want to know. But this was just too fun to pass up.

Unfortunately, now I have to wait to mail my letters until these arrive; bad planning on my part.

  1. Great blog. I love your home! You've done a great job restoring it. It reminds me a lot of my own 1912 Craftsman home in Utah. I appreciate seeing thoughtful restoration instead of "re-muddling".
