on a few good things...

A few good things.
I was way too excited to see this new stamp design at the post office last week. It's a little ridiculous that I care about things like this, but I do. Lately, when I go to buy stamps I'm completely uninspired by any of the designs. They're so meh. Too tacky or sporty or historical (sorry, founding fathers; I just don't want you adorning my mail). But these colorful Vintage Seed Packet designs? Yes, please.

A stack of ten new business cards arrived in the mail, and I just love them. I came across this link, which offers 10 free business cards (with free shipping!), and had to take them up on the offer. If you're needing some of your own, the deal is good through this Friday (June 21st). I've used the mini-Moo cards as my shop business cards for years now, but seeing the larger size makes me want to buy a whole bunch of them…and pass them out to strangers at the laundromat and other random places…

Who knew there was still a book on my bookshelf that I hadn't yet read and would absolutely not be able to put down? I've been reading a couple books that aren't really holding my interest, and this one caught my eye the other day. A family friend gave me her worn-and-weathered copy years and years ago, and for some reason I just never took the time to open it. Aaaaand now I can't put it down. I had an incredibly realistic dream recently that we were raptured (yep, that's a word) and since then I keep asking Jay a bunch of annoying, hypothetical questions, so perhaps this book will indulge my current obsession with the end times—and my husband will again be able to watch a basketball game in peace. But, you know. No guarantees. (Sorry, Jay.)

I recently found a code for a free Father's Day card from Treat, and went ahead and ordered one for Eisley to give Jay. It turned out so cute! I thought the design was perfect, since Eisley is borderline obsessed with lining up the alphabet magnets we have on our fridge. I typically prefer to make my own cards (or go through the stash of cards I already have), but it's hard to say no when I find deals like this. This time, I think it was totally worth it! And I kind of want to frame the card. Is that weird? I think not.

  1. I also get way too happy when the post office has cute stamps! I've had the best luck ordering online, because I hate when I go to the post office just to find out all they have are flags and ugly stuff.

  2. I still legitimately have a hard time remembering what's actually in the Bible about the end times, and what I read in the Left Behind series. Haha. Bad theologist.

    1. I have to keep reminding myself that these books are fiction and are an interpretation of what the end times will be like. I tend to take things like this way too seriously. ;)

  4. That Father's Day card is the best! I picked out some dumb generic one with elephants for Eli to give to Peter - will have to get more creative next year. Also, those stamps make me want to send some letters. Pretty!

  5. I remember DEVOURING the Left Behind series when I was younger! I read the kids version first and then went straight on to the adult books, haha. I must have only been in middle school at the time, too! They are really great books. So suspenseful!

    1. Devouring is the perfect way to put it! I love a good series that makes me so eager to read more. :)

  6. Those stamps are beautiful! I might have to buy some and mail them to a written-correspondence-obsessed friend of mine. =) Thanks for the tip!
