The main treat of my surprise Christmas bag from Christine was this stamp collectors book. I had been storing my vintage stamps in an old matchbox. It wasn't the best way to keep everything organized. They would stick to each other and I'd literally have to lay everything out to find what I was looking for.
This handy little book has slots so I can categorize my stamps by color, theme, price- anything I want! When I first got this book, I organized by cuteness.
That all changed when I got these. These aren't cute as much as they are amazing. Now I have to re-categorize!
I've filled up all the pages of my book so I'd better get to using some of these stamps so I can make room.
I usually use a glue stick to adhere the stamps to the envelope but Christine just showed me a handy trick with the xyron sticker machine, easy!
There's also this handy little guide on the back, that I don't understand ;) I'm a stamp collector fraud! I so enjoyed my bag o' surprises, it's the gift that keeps on giving well into 2011.
