Do you know why? Well.... it's because I am a long time stamp collector. There, I've said it!
Hi, my name is Janette, and I am a Stamp Collector!
I started collecting stamps from a young age, I don't know maybe around 8 or 9 years old? (Mum would know)
And I've always loved these tiny little works of art - it was the young Graphic Designer in me I think.
Just knowing that these little pieces of paper had travelled across the world via planes and ships and delivered letters containing love, hope, memories, or just bills :) to so many unknown people was very exciting to me and still is.
I have hundreds of stamps from all over the world.
Australia, England, Indonesia, Ireland, US, Romania, Italy, Germany, Thailand, Greece, Spain, all around Africa, Japan, China, India, Bangladesh, New Zealand, Portugal, Netherlands, Israel etc.
Rhodesian stamps from the 30's and 40's - look it's the Queen Mum!
So, I'm just wondering.... is anyone else out there a closet stamp collector like me???
And thank you everyone for your excitement and congratulations over our big milestone last night! I'm trying to upload video footage onto Photobucket to email to Will's Granny and Grandpa in South Africa so they can see how clever their little Grandson is :)
I hope you have a great day!
