I went to a craft store and...

Craft stores that sell rubber stamps are to me what catnip is to a kitteh!

Plus, they are way cheaper than buying wooden stamps!

  • Picked me up a lighthouse and some mistletoe for my stamp collection.
  • The cheap and cheerful boxes are for storing pretty bitties like postage stamps and stampy stamps.
  • Gold stars are fun and Christmasy for decorating brown paper wrapped gifts...
  • ...As is white satin ribbon (R20 for 20 metres from Osmans fabrics).
  •  The pretty pre-made Christmas postage tags are from Spar.
Need insipration for decoration and creation?

 *Heart* this UK Mag!

Sim made me a cuppa, and I indulged in one of my favourite old-fashioned(ish) activities...writing snail mail.

This time of year, it can only be one thing - Christmas cards for geographically scattered family members!

I highly recommend finding someone's latitude and longitude, and brightening their post box!

Even if it's a veritable stranger in the form of a long-lost friend or an out-of-touch family member, I like to think that the holidays give you a reprieve which allows you to say:

'Thinking of you. Happy 2013!'

Nothing like getting snail mail!! It's like a present when someone sends a card or letter. :) Great find with the stamps... I am horrible at stamping. I always miss spots. :) Have a great weekend! ~ Ramona

Oh pretty! LOVE your lighthouse. I've left all my Christmas cards way too late this year, time to get writing xx
