|January in San Francisco has been cold, dark and very wet. I love it! We need the rain and it is a good excuse to hang out in my studio and play.|
I noticed there are a lot stamps in the studio and that got me thinking...well...about stamps.
|I started noticing a lot of stamps on sheets of paper -- like these.|
|And like these......|
| I got to thinking, it would be fun to sort some of my bags of stamps and stick them in a moleskin....|
I find sorting stamps very calming.
|I had sooooo many piles going.....I sorted by colors and subject. And I stuck them in and didn't look back.|
The book will be fun to flip through.

This arrived on another day from Dawn C. Also a handmade book filled with postal goodness and pages to write in.
Dawn knew I've been having some difficult times and thought I needed some cheering up.
|Cheer me up it certainly did!|
|Thanks so very much, Dawn. I just love random acts of kindness , especially those sent through the mail.|
Any of you make any resolutions? Art ones?
