Do you love stamps? And do you love Christmas? Then you might enjoy how the Canadian Stamp News nabbed one of my photos for an article about the Christmas Philatelic Club.
Normally, I’m not a huge fan when websites just grab my images and use them without asking. But since I love both stamps and Christmas, I’ll give them a pass on this. Plus, they did credit the photo using both my name and my website address. (In return, I’m using a screenshot of their website. haha. Fair turnaround!)
It makes sense why they are using this particular photo. Their article is about Christmas and stamps. My photo features Christmas stamps. Plus, this isn’t just a standard straight-on shot of Christmas stamps. The composition of the photo is a bit fun, showing a bunch of overlapping envelopes with cancelled stamps.
The original blog post for this image is: Why I keep Christmas envelopes.
Congratulations to the Christmas Philatelic Club for their 50th anniversary!

I love the last two points: Get togethers, fun and friendship. Awwwww! I want a hug from the Christmas Philatelic Club. I’m kinda tempted to join!
And you get two free 25-word ads per year in the Yule Log. Oh boy, if I joined, what would my ads be?
