Being a person who uses the computer all day long, it is probably a good thing that I like it, but I have taken it to the next level. I think I would die without it.
I have been reading blogs about organization and "letting go" of stuff that we tend to amass and accumulate. So I decided to do some letting go and some getting back in return. That's right, I went to E-bay. Along with my love affair with the internet, I am also in love with all things scrapbooking, therefore, I have a plethora of rubber stamp sets.

Great word hu! I just got that definition for you from - you guessed it, the internet! Dictionary.com is a fabulous place.
Anyway, I decided to sell about 1/3 of my stamps and got busy taking pictures and listing them. Today I have been getting many of them ready to ship to their new owners. After receiving payment, over the internet, I purchased and printed shipping labels, over the internet. Since I have mailers here I have them labelled and packaged and can just drop them off at the post office without standing in line!
Amazing isn't it.
I remember when I was in school and we had to go to the library and look things up in the encyclopedia. My kids do their research at home on the internet. Up to date and convenient. None of these encyclopedias that are 15 years old and out of date.
I guess I really need to thank Al Gore for creating the internet.
