Going and Coming
In some instances I've been using a few of the hand cut stamps I made several years ago ~ and I may be carving a few more soon, possibly. But I'm loving the rubber stamps I've added to my collection recently, and there's definitely more of these on the way.
Favorite rubber stamp places currently are StampFrancisco and CatsLifePress.
I've been buying postage stamps from USPS online. There are so many more stamps to choose from than we get at the Fortuna Post Office. As an added bonus, stamps purchased online come in cellophane bags with chipboard so the stamps don't bend. The chipboard can be recycled into postcards, which you'll see in a couple of these photos -- they're the gray ones. Frankly, I think USPS uses too much packaging -- like they could combine several small quantities of stamps in one plastic sleeve with board -- but I'm always glad to get stuff that can be recycled into art.
