Hey! These look familiar (I really am a nerd with my stamps). So glad you saved them. So, so nice.

Another awesome blog that I will invade (to my sister's displeasure I'm sure). Brooke, Brooke, Brooke, we don't know one another very well, but I won't let that stop me (again to my sister's displeasure, I'm sure) from just jumping in and making one of my ridiculously unorganized post and welcoming myself into your new (I think) blogging world.

I love this place. Your blog I mean (I didn't want you to think I was somewhere really cool and just thought I would rub it in on your blog). I would post a comment on every thing you've posted so far, but then I would really get taken to task, so I'll just comment on these awesome stamps/notes that Abby has sent you. Very very cool. I love how something that traditionally is such a generic throw away, instead has been turned into a piece of art itself. And all of those stamps are so cool, especially put all together like that. I have officially decided that I need a envelope sent to me from Abby. And this goes without saying but obviously there would be no need for a letter (because again like you and I Brooke, Abby is 'sister's' friend, and not mine, I just like to borrow and pretend that hers are mine and make me think I have these incredibly talented artsy friends in my life).

So to sum up this novel first post, fantastic blog. I hope you don't hate me for my incredibly long and nonsensical posts. I have this inability to write one sentences that don't include a trip down 'where is she going with this' lane. Forgive me. But seriously, I really do love your blog. Very fun and I look forward to reading more (& don't worry I won't post 'my life as a random stalker' every time).

tara will you start a blog please? I would be your number one stalker. I love your comments as much as I love reading Alysha's, Brooke's, and Abby's blogs. shoot, I hope that didn't sound rude to them. I love the stamps, brilliant Abby, and I second, very sweet that Brooke saved them. If I've ever written Brooke a note I'm sure it is long gone by now.

Scout, if you had ever written me a note, it would in fact be saved. I think you gave me one card once and yes, it was packed and moved all the way out here to California.

And Tara, I'm so glad you like the blog. I second Scout's motion for you starting your own!
