Like to collect stamps but don't know how to...

I am so happy for the new followers that I have gotten! :D Question for all of you though: If I were to sell my stationery pads that I made, who would be willing to buy them?
Totally just found this online. Someone suggested this idea to me, but it looks like it’s already been done.
It's a Survey! →
I wanted to see why people do or don’t snail mail, and it’s interesting seeing all of the responses that people have given me. Perhaps you would like to take it too?
i-think-its-tea-time asked: This is super cool!!!
Orders = DONE. but Frustration!
There was a lot of ordering mishaps… The envelopes will have to be a no go from the website at least, cause it said it would take 3-4 weeks to process O.o I think I’ll print envelopes myself and then put them together.
Note Pads, Personalized Note Pads, Custom Memo... →
It’s settled. I will also order stuff from here for stationery prints (notepads). The last resort is to print somewhere near campus, but holy moly, kinko’s prices are up in the 100’s… I definitely do NOT have that kind of money…
Zazzle it is
I will definitely be using Zazzle for ordering stamps. Out of the 3 that I posted, it has the best editing options for the stamp, as well as more options overall as far as sizes, etc. The pricing may not be the best, but I’ll have to go with it. Plus, bulk is cheaper…
Maybe I could send letters to my friends asking them to write back asap about something… I don’t know who would have the time to do it though… I can make a post on here on Tumblr and see if people would respond to it… I wonder if there is a website (bigger than tumblr) that I can find random people to write letters to, explaining this project and linking them back to this...
Links! So many links!

I decided that instead of flooding this blog with photos that I find on tumblr, I’ll add it to a pinterest board that I created, and is linked above for those to reference. I think that will be the best way to use it. Otherwise, I’ll pull the more interesting ones back onto the blog to talk about them. But for right now the purpose for the pinterest board is to keep it all together...

I find this to be an interesting concept. Perhaps I should try it out myself…?
The Case For Longhand Letter Writing →
This is from a website called “Thought Catalog” I liked how the person talked about why letter writing was important to them and explained how it was useful to them in long distance relationships. Perhaps that is an idea that I can build off of?

Finally got the blog set up. It took me a while to figure out whether or not I wanted this on a tumblr site to begin with, but anyways, here it is! I managed to figure out how to add my own banner at the top of the tumblr page, so this place can be at least somewhat personal.
