Send Something Good Begins!

I was so excited to wake up and see the name and address of my Secret Blogger (SB) ! I already have several ideas about items to include in my SB's package.

As I was reading through Kaitlyn's mailing tips, I was excited to see she encouraged everyone to use postage stamps and not printed postage labels. See, I collect canceled postage stamps! No, they are not in albums, but they are sorted and organized in boxes. Years ago, my in- laws asked my husband if he wanted boxes of canceled stamps they had collected while working for a company that received oodles of postcards. He was less than excited, but my eyes lit up! It immediately brought back memories of my stamp book as a kid. Besides, stamps are like little works of art, and architects love that kind of thing! So, I then took on the daunting task of organizing the stamps and sorting out individual collections for all of my in-laws's grandchildren, including my own two boys. The boys aren't currently that interested in their collections, but I keep adding to them. We can't all be scrapbookers...some of us are stamp people.

So, to my Secret Blogger, please place real postage stamps on my package! That counts as a special gift to me : )

About Me

VA, United States
Christopher Scott is a pen name under which my paper concoctions are created. My pen is a compilation of family names and recognizes those that endure the chaos surrounding my paper obession. During childhood many hours were spent cutting, pasting,and creating merely for personal enjoyment. College consisted of much more of the same as I cut, pasted, and created my way through Architecture School. Now, many years later my paper addiction ensues. Hence, Christopher Scott (a.k.a. paperholic)
