I made my first set of stamps a few days ago. They are nothing special, just some clip art of a hen that I recoloured for each one. I was inspired by my two hens, Inara and Shelley, to create a new currency: eggs! 1be means that the stamp is worth one bantam egg. I will make higher priced stamps which will cost a bre, or a black rock egg. (Shelley being a bantam, and Inara, a black rock hen.)
I wanted to have somewhere for my stamps to have come from, so I named my "post" the Rhydgaled Post. I live in a hamlet known as Chancery (which has just a dozen houses). But the Welsh name is Rhydgaled, because the first cottages built here over 200 years ago were for the servants of the Rhydgaled estate. I live in one of those cottages, the one that was originally built for the coachman and his two sisters.
I've just finished my second set called Victorian ladies. I collect Victorian and Edwardian photographs and have quite a nice collection to choose from. I love the sepia colours, all browns and creams.
