Please send me your snail mail addy so I can get your stamps out in the mail :)

I also wanted to share what I was playing around with this past weekend....
It's an old printers drawer that had some serious issues. I got it in a two for one deal so it was well worth it.  Since it was so far gone I didn't mind doing a little revamping on it to work for my stamps.
 The back board was damaged so my dad replaced that with a nice new sheet of wood.
It had several dividers that were half broken ~ the top was gone but the lower portion of the divider was still intact. So I broke the bottoms off  and made space to fit some of my favorite stamps and other "goodies".  

It's not quite full yet but I have some things in mind that I'd like to find to finish it off.

I don't know if you've ever tried Dove chocolates or not but they are wonderful.  I normally don't like chocolate (unless it comes with peanut butter or caramel) but Dove is really good...It actually melts in your mouth.  I had bought my first package back in October (because of the whole pink thing) but kept forgetting to buy more.  I noticed at that time that each chocolate had a nifty little message inside. 
Well, I finally remembered to pick up a package today. I sat down to create the card project for today but decided to have a chocolate before I got started and this is what it said inside....

How perfect is that?!?!
That is perfect since I was sitting down to do something I truly love!
