We are really happy to have this sponsor
back in The Cafe with us...

Practicing Creativity is the result of a dream, a supportive husband, and a fantastic book called A Million Miles in a Thousand Years by Donald Miller. After a year of wishing and dreaming of designing stamps we made the plunge. We were determined to try, and the quote below helps remind us of our dream.
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” Mark Twain
Our Goal First we want to provide you with fantastic designs, made with top quality materials, and great service to boot! Secondly we want you to be inspired! We hope you'll find our products as well as our design team as fuel for your inspiration. 
Thank you to all of you who have encouraged and supported us!
