Christmas Stamps

As you all know, I am an avid Postcrosser, and have nearly been doing it for a year now! In (almost) 365 days, I have sent 178 postcards to 30 different countries. It's definitely one of the best projects I have ever joined, and I'd highly recommend it to anyone - it's so much fun and I absolutely love receiving such happy post from all over the world. It definitely beats bills!

I went into town yesterday to buy some more local cards, and was disappointed to find how few there are about at the moment. That's the problem with seasons, I suppose - Winter hits and all of a sudden we lack in postcards! However, I did manage to buy some lovely new Christmassy stamps to put on my cards!

Our Christmas stamps are so cute this year! And it makes a nice change being able to use a pretty stamp, rather than the generic silhouette of the Queen's head. I receive such beautiful stamps from all over the world (Finland in particular...you have amazing stamps!) so it's nice to send something pretty in return. I have written 5 postcards today and am about to go and post them to their destinations - Germany, Russia, Finland, Belarus and Malaysia!
