One of the many reasons I prefer my Kindle2 aka Kenny to a printed book. 

Don't get me wrong, I love the feel and smell of a book but when I'm traveling and on the go, I prefer my Kindle any day of the week.

I refer to this store as my crack house. 

Another January rainy day, 10% off all purchases, and the desire for my creative soul to be fed led me here Saturday, January 15.

Stop and smell the roses, er the pine.  Stop and smell the pine.

My new address stamp arrived in the mail yesterday from Paperwink

I didn't open it until today. 

Loved the simplicity and unexpectedness of the packaging. 

Oh, and the address stamp?  It is pretty fantastic too.
