B'day Candles (re-run)

You can never have too many birthday ideas. If I ever find another sheet of these stamps, I will allow myself to get them because two of them would cover the two-ounce rate.

This lettering was done very hastily. I think the main thing I would do if I were to do this again is to use a ruler to make the base line. The flames could be done better - but they are fine - going to someone who is not an artist with a critical eye. Not an applied artist. She has aesthetic talents in other areas.

This envelope was the most pinned envelope in February - which is when I wrote this post.

I also noticed that when you send someone a link to a pin, each pin is assigned a number.
That number has 18 digits. Of course, I needed to know what you call a number with 18 digits.

Google led me to this table:
Sets of 3 zeros Past 1,000NameNumber of Zeros
3trillion12 (1,000,000,000,000)
4quadrillion15 (1,000,000,000,000,000)
5quintillion18 (1,000,000,000,000,000,000)
6sextillion21 (1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000)


  1. I like the black the letters depth. But way too many 0000s to think about.
