Hi there -I received your beautiful leaf print envelope - with such beautiful contents. The prints on the rigid-ish ,see-through material ( no idea what it is) is so ethereal and lovely.Thank you so much!
You asked me where did I get that stamp... I've had it for several years now. I've been rubberstamping and scrapping for 30 years now and go to a lot of conventions each year. I try and buy my rubberstamps unmounted and only pay half to 60% off for them. I can't remember who that rubberstamp company is from, it's an unmounted stamp, there for there is no company name attached to the stamp, that stamp I've had for years now. Wish I could help you more.
On your sewing machine...One day, about 15 years ago, I took a Sony Walkman that didn't work to a shop to be repaired. I was told that to send it back to the factory in Germany to be checked out would cost about $30 (almost as much as it was worth), and if I had to have any repairs done, I would have to pay extra for those, and then there was more expense for the return postage and packing. Let's say $60 in all. On the same day, I had my annual medical examination for which I paid my doctor about £$30.
There is something wrong, very wrong, when it costs more to check out a sewing machine or a walkman than a person.
(I bought a new Walkman. Alas, I couldn't buy a new body)
