January 2016 Recap

January 2016 Recap is our Sunday blog post today.  Today makes daily blog post number 340 !

It is hard to believe today wraps up the first month of 2016.  And in looking ahead this coming Tuesday is Ground Hog Day reminding me to plan on watching (again) the Bill Murray classic!

My order of five Red Pears Stamps arrived in the mail this past Friday and it is fun planning to use them with upcoming letters being sent out.  I’m planning on including one on each of handwritten letters being sent to some AnchoredScraps.com blog email subscribers here that I have addresses for already, if you would like to provide your snail mail my Contact page is available.  Perhaps you will be one of the five people who receive one – just please make sure to keep the stamp!

Today we are looking at a recap for the month of January 2016 along with the blog post number which is included (in table format).
