Ok I am not trying to rush you in to Christmas mode when we are in the glorious days of early autumn but I am just so excited about these newly issued stamps!

If you like them as much as I do and are a Christmas card sender, order them now and then you’ll be all set in December. The one with Charlie Brown looking in to the mailbox? Its meta magic!

Sunday is Mother’s Day y’all. Make some cards and send them to the moms in your life- you know that they will be appreciated. Get them in the mail pronto!

Look at these adorable hand sewn mom cards by Memory Threads that I saw at a Brooklyn fair this weekend. Jenna, the creative force behind Memory Threads, provided sharpies for kids to customize the cloth cards for their moms. Such a sweet idea!

Its February and you know what that means in the Northeast, right? Cold. Grey. Snow. Slush. And.

Colorful, cheerful, love filled mail traveling coast to coast, mailbox to mailbox!

Yes Valentine’s Day is next week and it is the most beloved of VSM opportunities! Not the chocolate and teddy bears commercial holiday that makes people feel bad if they don’t have a mate. But the handmade holiday when you get to make and send your favorite people a token of your affection. Ok and enjoy a bit of chocolate. Let’s do this!

Viva Valentines!

Even though I LOVE Christmas I try to keep holiday shopping simple. I don’t shop on Black Friday because I celebrate Buy Nothing Day. I believe there is a direct correlation between our consumer habits and Climate Change.

But.

One of my favorite holiday customs is sending and receiving cards and if I’m going to do that well, its time to start thinking/planning/shopping. Today.

Are you with me?

How great are these vintage postage stamps from Darling One’s Etsy shop? These would look amazing on your very planned ahead holiday card envelopes right?
