::Confession Time::

I have a serious confession to make. Apart from all my paper love and sticker love, there is one other thing that I simply MUST have… PINS.

Happy Mail ::Holiday Mail Dates::

The USPS went above and beyond today and published the dates for holiday mailing this year–this is PRICELESS information if you are like me and send letters (you know, partially to keep the lines of communication open and partially because YAY!). These are the dates you need to keep in mind for domestic items:
