I am a modern girl (email, Facebook, Twitter) that still runs to the mailbox each day in hopes of receiving a letter. I know that I am not alone.I also have a weakness for stationary, cute return address labels and stickers. My stash of writing materials could practically count as a collection. Notecards with tea cups for my Victoria-loving friends. Notecards with Nancy Drew book covers for the readers in my life. Barefoot Contessa recipe/note cards for the foodies. If you're a girl, I've got you covered.
When I was browsing the wooden stamps section at the craft store (just for fun, I don't normally use stamps), I saw this "Sailboat Bay" stamp by Stampendous. I instantly knew that I wanted to stamp all of my outgoing mail this summer. I like to think of my friends having a moment of delight when they find actual mail in their mail box.
What would say I'm "at the cottage" more than a stamp that looks a lot like Leland harbor. Isn't that a fun idea? I have been stamping everything in sight and I think it looks really cute.
The next time you write a note to your friend or send a birthday card, consider jazzing the envelope up with a stamp. It's a light-hearted way to say its from you.
