...postcard from the edge of Europe

video

Would you like to see where I was on Easter Sunday? Just click the video. We went up to look at Slieve League cliffs in Donegal. Part of the beauty of Ireland is that nothing is more than a couple of hours drive from where I live - Donegal is particularly handy and there is nothing like standing at the edge of Europe to put things into perspective.

There are changes happening at Waltzingmouse Stamps and it has been a little overwhelming at times this year so far - My schedule for the year was vaporized by the VAT EU thing and we have had to alter the course of our business, once again. It is a great source of annoyance to me that we have been thrown of course from our monthly releases, but it has been unavoidable.

The good news is that we are embarking on an adventure that many, many folks have requested all through the 6 years we have been around so far - I'm very excited by what is coming next and I hope to make an announcement on that very soon, looking forward to spilling the beans, so to speak!

  1. Wonderful! I wish I could have been there, too!
    My husband and I have been to Ireland last September/October - we loved it! Hubby fell in love with Smithwicks and I with Galway Hooker pale ale... and we both fell in love with the people and the gorgeous landscape! We will return this October!
    You live in a really beautiful country!
    Have a nice week,

    1. Joyce, it is amazing, they are at least two times as high as the cliffs of Moher, it was absolutely breathtaking, we went back the next day to look at it again!
