In today’s post, I thought of sharing our stamps album. As a child, one of my hobbies was collecting stamps. I had a good collection of stamps from various countries. But, I didn’t have a proper album. I even lost those due to no attention lately due to studies, marriage, and leaving my home country. Though my stamp collection was just a childhood memory for me, I suddenly started collecting stamps again. That was when I was pregnant with my son. I don’t know why, suddenly this hobby came to my mind. Then it was again a silent hobby for me. Recently I introduced this to my son too though the Stamp album is still in my possession. 🙂
Well, that’s about how I have a stamp album. Also, read this post I wrote on how to start stamp collecting for kids. It is a guide for beginners.
A few days ago we went out and we also went to a bookshop to buy stationery. While browsing, I found some stamps too. Those are thematic stamps and I found scouts-themed stamps. My son is a cub scout. So, I showed it to him thinking he would love it for the album.
Yes, he loved Scout stamps. But, he found football-themed stamps too and struggled to choose one. Finally, we bought scouts-themed stamps.
Coming back, he was busy with arranging stamps inside the album. The good thing is that we searched and read about each stamp. It was a good bonding time too while learning new things.
While arranging stamps, I thought sharing a few photos of our collection as a blog post is a good idea! 🙂
And, now son has his own space for studies with our new findings from IKEA visit. Below is a clear photo of his study desk and book shelf.
Finally,scouts stamps are arranged in our stamps album! I found stamp collecting is a great way to spend time together as a collaborative hobby.
Do you collect stamps? Please share your experiences with collecting stamps as a hobby.I’d love to read your comments! 🙂
Yesterday, we had dinner at Pastamania. I loved their vintage-looking drinking cup design and captured a photo for this week’s T Tuesday. I had a soft drink in this cup 🙂
