The weeks between the announcement of the Retiring Stamps and Accesories list and the start of a new catalog is always a tough time for me. On one hand I am so excited to see and play with new stamps sets and accesories and on the other it is sad to see so many favorite things retire. My stamp room is in a state of confusion getting ready for the transition from one catalog and the Occasions catalog to the new catalog. Today's cards has something new, something retiring and something current on them. I thought it was a good compromise for this time of transition.
