sealed with love

If any of my friends have been to the Post Office recently, no one told me the delight I'd find when I shuffled over to our local PO this morning. I have a good supply of forever stamps, accumulated over the past month or 2 and had no intention of purchasing any postage, today.

One of the new love stamps is called "Sealed with Love," and it's an image of the back of a wax-sealed envelope. This stamp has my name all over it!! The Post Master helped me and after setting the new stamp, I asked if it was available yet. He said, "Available? I don't think I have any left!" I told him that I HAD to have that stamp and that I'm a hardcore wax sealer. It's meant to be on my correspondence.

Nice guy that he is, he searched all the drawers and found 2 sheets for me. Yay! He said he would have more in a few weeks.

If you're a sealing wax aficionado, as I am, there's stamps are for you. 

unofficial spokesperson

So there I was, waiting in line at JoAnn, yesterday. A woman who earlier asked my advice about color while we were both in the yarn department, was behind me in line. We acknowledged each other and chatted a bit. Of course, I brought up Ravelry and asked her if she was on it. No, she wasn't. So I told her all about its yarny goodness. She said she was going to check it out when she got home. The woman behind HER said she wrote it down while we were talking.

I'm always surprised when I meet yarn crafters who are unaware of it. I seem to have taken on the role of unofficial spokesperson for Ravelry, wherever I meet fellow yarnies. It's the best kept secret that shouldn't be.
