1000 stamps=8+ hours of work

stampspan

That’s right.  I spent the better part of all day yesterday sorting and inventorying the 1000 stamps I won from Unity.  All I can say is WOW!

I sat down thinking it would take me an hour or two but WOW!  I eventually had buried myself in, surrounded with piles and piles of stamps, trying to sort them and match them into sets or like pieces for rebagging.  Eventually I went from this (above and below pics):

to this:

The folder is there for perspective (it’s my Unity catalog – standard 81/2”x11” folder).  I haven’t counted but based on the number of clear envelopes I went through, I think I bagged about 150 goodie bags of assorted stamps.  Some are mostly complete sets, others are a random assortment, while others are a cute image and greeting to go along with it.

I will be giving away these little baggies with orders or maybe some as blog candy until they are gone!  I want to share the love and the unmounted rubbery goodness!

Thanks for popping in.  Have a great weekend!
