rerun friday - christy who started it all

looking back at the first year of posts is a treat for me. i find things like this one which included the story about how my envelopes to christy in 2002 were the beginning of my whole obsession with envelopes. she is a niece who headed off to college a year ahead of my oldest offspring and i made envelopes for christy's mom to send to her. after she told me how much she, as well as dorm mates, enjoyed them, i started stockpiling envelopes for my daughter and they were ready to be mailed to her freshman dorm the following year. i wish the PO would be as vigilant at keeping a happy birthday stamp always available as they are with the flags.

  1. The happy birthday stamp is great. At least the post office has the neon celebrate stamp in stock, having reissued it recently.

    1. i wish i had labeled all the posts that featured each particular stamp so that we could click to ideas that relate to each stamp. maybe i should go back and do that as i do my re-visit for my re-run fridays.

    1. thank you. i wonder if there is a device that would track my activities. seeing the actual number of minutes that i spend here might knock some sense into me.

  3. I agree. I would love to see more permanent stamps in addition to the seasonal ones. I love this envelope, by the way. Simple yet still fun!
