Yes the holidays were difficult with the loss of my brother, but you do the best to move along and keep his memory strong. That, indeed, was the best and perhaps the worst of Christmas Day.
But now for the best of the week . . . it's a crafty thing . . . a little company that I love called Clear and Simple Stamps . . . I found them back in the summer of 2010 at the Stamp Expo in Massachusetts, and I bought some of their stamps. What I love about them . . .
- Their stamps are Clear and Simple (just like the name says).
- When I order from them and my shipment arrives, it comes in a great box and is enveloped in tissue paper (their signature color!).
- Sometimes they include a complimentary copy of a magazine, and they put a post-it note on the page that has their advertisement!
- And sometimes they send me a magnet or post-it pad with their logo.
- They have an App for the iPhone that is awesome and keeps me inspired.
It's that personal touch that I love! And so on the 23rd I got a holiday card from them, and it included a free sentiment stamp set . . . not just one stamp . . . a stamp set! And so for two years running, I've gotten an awesome stamp set for being a customer. It just arrived in an adorable card.
It's the personal touch that is just awesome! Their adorable card made it into my Smash Book. It made me smile. It was "my best" for the day.
