I do not consider myself a rubber stamper. I have a few small themed-sets for MailArt purposes that are available at just about any arts and crafts store, but I'm not huge about them. I proved this to myself when I recently attended a Rubber Stamp show. I came out saying,
"These folks are serious!" LOL.
I had oodles of fun meandering about and enjoying how much Rubber Stampers really do adore their stamps. I can respect their enthusiasm and tip my hat to all they create with them!
That being said, I have a ton on my plate! I must save time. So I started with a custom rubber stamp of my return address. I figured it would help me not have to turn my computer on just to print my logo on an envelope. Many months later I now have to admit I'm a little more addicted to custom designing my rubber stamps then I could have imagined. So I thought I'd introduce this concept to you on the IQS blog. It's easier and not as pricy as you might think. They can be practical and fun!
I'm super excited! While navigating the internet with some like-minded letter friends the subject of "child penpalling" came up. One thing lead to another and I reached out to a neighbor of mine who has children that I thought might be interested.
It turns out they might be. So I put out a call to get them a penpal and to my wonderful delight there are two lovely girls, one it Germany, the other in New Zealand who are up for my young neighbor friends, Clara and Jeanette.
"I couldn't possibly just hand over
an address now could I ?"
No no no...
Hello, I’m Nina, the maven behind the
IQS blog. I’m all about creativity (ya think?).
I work in several disciplines. So it's no surprise that the Art of Letter Writing would come knocking on my door. Smitten!
However, I did not want to simply add MailArt as a discipline to my website. Thus it became the IQS Blog within my site. And that is why there are TWO navigation menus. *Here’s a Tip: stick with the BLOG Menu in this Column. The main site menu will lead you astray into dark places where you will be screaming for help and no one will hear you.
• More Love Letters
• Letter Writers
• A Month of Letters
• Post Card Exchange
• Snail Mail Ideas
Remember paper planes?
