Collecting

When I was a kid, I had a pretty great stamp collection. In the beginning my specialty was puppy and kitten stamps. Did I mention I was like 6 or 7 when I started my collection? It grew to include a lot of other themes as well but I closeted it around 7th grade because I decided it wasn’t cool. In retrospect it was a pretty useful hobby. I learned  geography, how to be careful with delicate objects, history, how to curate a collection, and design basics.

I was in the post office today mailing out some of my prints and I totally nerded out on these awesome Earthscape stamps. In addition to the city and suburb stamps, there’s a Monument Valley and Mount St. Helen stamp.

I know, right?!

I bought one to send and one to keep for the collection which I guess is back on.
