Geeky childhood confession - I collected postage stamps. I actually feel like it was instigated by my mom who got my sister and I "Canada Post Stamp collecting kits" which I remember as being free in the early 90's (which I could be wrong about - but that was 20 years ago...). As I got older I stopped thinking stamp collecting was super awesome but my mom continued on the collecting for years. I still make a note of checking out the stamps on any mail I receive and I always like checking out the new stamp collections at the post office when I'm there. It's such a neat art form and with this rad tutorial from Miss Vicky Voila (link) - you can turn that post marked postage into pins! Check it out:
Oh do I ever love this idea! I'm also on quite the Sculpey accessory making binge so this fits in perfectly! Now all I need to do is find some cool stamps worth pinning to my cardigan and I will be set! How about you? Do you go on craft binges? Did you collect anything embarrassing as a kid?
