As I go through some of my desk drawers, I have a bunch of stamps and a few stamp pads. I really used to enjoy stamping things. I never got into it hot and heavy like some, but usually at Christmas I would stamp some Christmas decoration on the envelope, and the same for birthdays and greeting cards.

Just for fun, I priced stamp pads the other day when I was at a sewing center. Holy cow! They have certainly gone up in price since the many years ago I purchased a couple. I also looked at an office supply store and they were cheaper, but they only had black and red.

I still have a couple of stamp pads and I have some ink to refresh one of them so I did that and have been using the stamps on a few of my cards and letters.

I guess I'm a dying breed because I still send birthday cards, sympathy cards, get well cards and even thank you notes. Of course with schools not teaching cursive, people may not even be able to read cursive in a few years. Sad commentary when you think they will not be able to read historical documents like the Declaration of Independence. Anyway, I still write letters to some people and I like embellish the envelopes.

Do you know if folks still enjoy using their stamp pads? I figure since I'm not spending anything, I can still enjoy using them.

    I used to use them all the time for teaching. The middle schoolers loved them and so did many of the high school students. I have tons of stamps. I used to find the pads at Dollar Tree from time to time.

    I don't know of anyone personally. I have thought of getting a couple simple stamps to make my own cards. I send fewer and fewer each year, so I'm not sure I want to make the investment. I do like to receive fun mail though!

    I think I still have some stamps around, and when our director of Celtic studies retired, she left a bunch in her office which I inherited. Maybe my desk cleanout should be on my agenda.

    All I see is people who get sticker labels with their name and address which they put on the back of their envelopes.
