NEWSFLASH..... we have here in TX had a big mercury spill in the post office that sorts our mail and gets it to us. So I have received nothing since last Thursday..,,,8/9/18....and there is no promise when the mail will begin again to be delivered. Not to fear all mail does not go thru that building to get to you. So if you haven't gotten a rating from me this is probably why .... I am still waiting for it to be delivered hoping this ends soon...... will keep all informed. Well that was interesting..... GLAD it's over and mail seems to be running smoothly both ways........ THIS HAS BEEN FIXED......

I love all kinds of beads, glass beads, Czech beads, wooden beads vintage beads...….and stuff….did I say I like stuff and making ATC's and cards from stuff other people might THROW AWAY….. kinda like say holy crap that can be recycled and re used….. love this stuff!

Angie rated for MA: Rubber Stamp ATC on Feb 6, 2019
Comment: Hi Katie! Hey, way cool ATC but hold the phone! I love the Moomin stamps. Is that one hand carved? Way, way, way cool! I love Moomins too. I remember discovering them when my kids were little and being unable to get any books without selling a kidney to pay for it - well, or traveling to Scandinavia. LOL. But, anyway, thank you. I love the whole package. Ha, including the valentine. So sweet.
Response: Hi...and uh.... YES those Moomin and squirrel stamps are HAND CARVED and gifted to me by my adopted daughter from Holland who also got me swapping here. We met thru Postcrossing.... I am so glad you liked the swap! Thank YOU for the HEARTED 5!
