The usual reasons: it's truly democratic (if you ignore the poor folks who don't have mail service) and it is NECESSARY for my soul to create/share art in such a fashion. I can't quite put a finger on why I went from collecting stamps to making my own stamps when in my early teens thinking I was the only weirdo on the planet to do such a thing.
The Minister for Silly Affairs -- who admires your caligraphy -- has asked me to thank you very much for your "Brexit? You Bet!" Silly Stamps. He was tempted to send one to the President of the EU (with instructions about where he could stick it), but decided to keep both of them for himself.
Thank you. Bedankt.
And if you are ina Coffee Shop in Maastricht in July/August you may well have the opportunity of receiving the Minister's thanks in person.
