It sounds like we are going to be snowed in tomorrow with blizzard~like conditions expected...hoping to finish the Merry Christmas pinkeep and tuck it in amongst some fresh picked greens.
Do you suppose mail carriers still find coins in mayonnaise lids in the mail boxes? Can you really still buy stamps at the end of a country lane??
Just think about this...it isn't necessary to tear stamps apart any longer, if we choose not to...we no longer need to lick the stamps, if we don't want to...we can even print our own stamps with our pictures on them, if we so choose...why, we really don't even need a stamp if we go the electronic route for sending our holiday greetings.
Our children and grand children's stories are going to be so much different then ours...
Did you know the first Christmas stamp issued in the United States was a 4-cent stamp issued in 1962. That would have made me 1 year old at the time. The red and green stamp featured a wreath, two candles and the words "Christmas 1962". By the end of the holiday season, one billion of the first Christmas stamps were printed and sold.
Often times I turn to childhood memories for inspiration for my next pattern design...with that said, let me introduce a new punch needle pattern titled, "Christmas Stamp". I couldn't decide what the cost of this stamp should be...a nickel, a dime?? After some pondering, I decided it had to be 25 cents in honor of Christmas day. The first in a series of annual Christmas stamp patterns...start your collection today! (Copyright 2009 - With thy Needle & Thread)
