It's the small magic.
You know what I mean...
The person in front of you that pays for your drive through order (do that today if you've never done it..) the person that holds a door for you, the moment all by yourself where you add glitter to something and it makes you grin like you're street rat crazy? (<-- Click for a hilarious ad) You DO know what I mean. I know you people.
I ordered a stamp. Two, actually. I'll give you a minute to catch your breath. It's true. I like stamps. Lots of them. But something caught my eye on a blog that I am so glad I took a chance on.
I don't like self inking stamps. I've never had a good one. But something about a blog post about Cambria Cove stamps was... magical. So I ordered one. Low expectations. But it got here today, and it was magic.
I opened the box, and I saw this.
A large vellum envelope with a card in it that is printed on paper I can't even describe. Incredibly heavyweight, beautiful surface, clearly expensive.
"Why do this?" - my operations nazi side asks.. "Why spend the money?"
"Why do they love me?" my heart asks, as my paw handles the card.
Then I read what it says.
I won't recreate it here, but here are two sentences... "A place of unexpected delights. A place where we strike that delicate balance between taking care of others and taking care of ourselves." (Theresa - surely, they're talking to you)
Then, the stamps, wrapped in this lovely toile tissue paper and sealed with a label with my stamp design on it. Amazing. Time consuming. Expensive.
Why do it?
You made my day, Cambria Cove.
