creating with spirit & enthusiasm…often with great results


platz/stamp charmJust fooling around!

I’ve used an old ‘stamped’ US postage stamp in a charm with a snippet of map on side 2.   I also soldered the edge of a small ‘A’ that I have cut out of  an old AZ license plate and then attached the two charms together with a jump ring.

It’s lying on a 1910 map of my favorite state!  The ‘A’ is right over my house!


I have scads of old stamps that I need to begin incorporating into something.

truths?I loved this stamp but it also makes me a bit sad because I think that the ‘Truths’ have changed and are changing.

Isn’t that exactly what was voted for?   …change?

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
