Used Postage Stamps Wanted

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAIf anyone would like to recycle any used postage stamps (all types, Australian and overseas, all denominations) they don’t want…I can put them to good use 🙂

Very much appreciated! Send to: Sandra James, PO Box 798, Heathcote Victoria, Australia 3523.

Thank you 🙂



It’s in the mail!


Thank you to all the kind people who’ve been sending me their used stamps . . . I do appreciate it 🙂

If anyone has any unwanted, used stamps (Australian or foreign) please send to Positive Words, PO Box 798, Heathcote 3523, Victoria, Australia.  Thanks!

Apparently, Australia Post is considering charging us an annual fee for mail delivery. Sounds like double-dipping to me 😦

We pay postage to include the cost of delivery and now they want it at the other end, too. Will they reduce the cost of postage to allow for it? I doubt it! Last week I discovered a link on the bottom of my PO receipt for a survey where consumers can have their say. or phone 1800 022 535

Adding an extra postal charge will be yet another hurdle for Positive Words magazine which already runs on a shoe-string. As I’ve said before, it’s a labour-of-love and I don’t get any wages/payments etc from it and, in fact, this month I’ll be taking  from my own savings to pay the shortfall in printing and postage 😦

For anyone interested in a great read or an inspirational gift for a fellow writer . . . subscriptions are always very welcome. Details here for Australian readers/subscribers Submissions & Subscriptions for Positive Words   and for International readers/subscribers International subscription rates for POSITIVE WORDS.2   You can receive a sample copy by sending $2.40 in unused stamps or 3 for a $6 book of stamps 🙂  International readers contact me for details

Thank you everyone 🙂


Great stamps


Whoever decides the designs for our postage stamps must have been listening to me this year.

A Mini Red Dachshund a few months ago and now chooks 🙂

They look so much better on the envelopes than ‘Postage Paid’!!

Thank you to all the kind subscribers and contributors who have been sending stamps – it all helps and I do appreciate it 🙂

Ten Stamps

Today’s prompt…

As you can imagine, I use LOTS of stamps every month! I think these ones are really pretty 🙂

Stamps from the competitions are a big help and a few readers simply send a book of stamps each month instead of a subscription 🙂 It all adds up!

NaNoWriMo Update: My story flowed well yesterday and I’ve left it on a mini-cliff hanger I’m eager to continue today 🙂 My total is 23,619, just a little over the target. Today is the halfway point and all going well I will pass 25,000 words 🙂 Thanks for the messages and emails of encouragement – they really help!
