New US Postal Stamps



The United States Post Office is releasing today a new series of first class stamps. They will start this year and run until the year 2019. The Chinese calendar runs in 12 year circles so there will be one stamp released each year that will reflect the Chinese Zodiac. Chinese New year this year is on Feb 7 and is the year of the Rat. I can't wait to purchase a page of these stamps to put away for Sophia. We plan on doing this each year until we have them all. I also plan to purchase a few extras sheets so that when I send out Sophia's adoption announcement they will have the Year of the Rat stamps on them.

I personally think they are beautiful stamps.....

Susan, thanks for telling me about this. I love the idea of saving a sheet every year for Sophia...I might have to copy off of you and do that for Hope!!! :)
Love ya!!

I bought 3 sheets, but might run out to the post office to get more. I liked the idea of using them in the gift bags for China, sending announcements and saving for the future. I'm a geek and have bought collector stamps in the past (Elvis, LooneyTunes, Motown,etc). I don't ever do anything with them...maybe when I retire they'll be worth something???LOL
