As clean as it gets
Let me make a disclaimer first. A couple of disclaimers.
1) I am not a photographer.
2) I have yet to learn how to make fancy borders around my pix and not scrunch them all together.
3) Yes, I have a lot of stamps. And paper. And punches. And.
As my MIL put it today "Oh dear, you must have at least $10,ooo dollars in here (stamp room). This is where I probably (or at least should have) turned beet red. Nope. I've been at it for 22 years now, and a quick calculations tells me that's ..... $454/year ($37.88/month). Saying her figure is accurate. If you ask me, that's not so shabby! I could spend a lot more on therapy. Right? Who's with me here???
Ah, all is well. I've come to the conclusion that I purposely keep my stamp room in disarray to ward of on-lookers and would-be judges. After all, if my room is "too messy to show" I don't go through possible ridicule at my hobby (ok, obession!) I KNOW I spend money on stamps and stuff. I'm OK with that. Will I ever use it all? Probably not. But it sure is fun having all these goodies at my finger-tips just waiting to be played with.
Now off to clutter up this place, it's too clean.
