My new stamp

Yesterday, one of the secretaries at school had a terrible fall. I can completely relate to her because three years ago on a beautiful April day I fell, shattering my elbow and breaking my arm in four places. After surgery and three days in the hospital, it was months and months and months before I was anywhere close to my normal self. I am 99% ok now, but I will most likely never be able to lift anything heavy with my left arm (I'm left-handed too by the way).

I'm not quite sure the extent of the damage, but rumour has it she broke her nose (ouch!) and wrist. I am so excited to give her one of my new handmade cards. I've also bundled up a package of 4 (with envelopes, of course) for her as a little get well gift. I sure hope she likes it!



I had to get some stamps made for the library. While I was at the stamp store, I decided to get a stamp made for myself. Notice my new fancy-shmancy Trial Mix Designs stamp. It's a bit over the top, but then again, so am I. I love it.

I personally think that a set of beautiful handmade cards with envelopes makes a perfect gift! Pretty packaging, too!

And I don't think your stamp looks over the top. Where do you get a stamp like that made? I want one! With different words on there, of course.

I think your handmade cards are a lovely get well gift.

Love that stamp! When I was a kid my grandma had a stamp made for me with my name on it. Personalized stamps are the best!
