Storage for stamps
I thought i would share with all you Maggie lovers how i store my stamps.
I have been told that these are no longer available in some countries, but sure you could get them at a garage sale or a junk shop while scrounging around looking for bargains as i am sure all crafty people look for things in the wierdest of places and its in the weird places that we find the best treasures.
I get my cd cases from the local hospice that sells second hand treasures, i love going in there to see what new things they have waiting for new owners, my kids call it garbage hunting, instead of bargain hunting, ha ha. They hate going with me, but its literrally across the road from school so thats when i pop in, when i get them from school. They say it smells funny, i never noticed, must be something youngsters smell.
Well i wash out all the cd cases, take off any stickers etc, print names of my newest stamps on the pc, cut into strips and adhere to the spine of the cd case and then stamp an image into my flip file with their name next to them. I then also manage to find these optometrist drawers at the garbage shop and they are perfect for all my stamps.
