Welcome to this stamps, first-day covers and postcards gallery of mine euphemistically called Lets Talk Stamps. My desire here, is to show as often as I can, some of my presumed beauties and talk about them. And hopefully make Your Day in the bargain. In case you want a better view, JUST CLICK on the picture and it will be ENLARGED. Please also see my picture postcards blog www.mypicturepostcards.blogspot.in

Spotlight on crafts 6.11.2015
Posti's Craftsis a miniature sheet with the aim of increasing the public appreciation of crafts. Crafts pass on traditions, give pleasure, is a popular subject at school, and provide a livelihood to many. The sheet is the result of a proposal submitted to Posti by the Finnish Crafts Organization Taito ry, the Association of Craft Teachers TOL ry and the Association of Technology Teachers TAO ry. The miniature sheet is designed by Aamu Song and Johan Olin, who together make up the artist partnership COMPANY.
The stamps depict products made from many different materials, representing both traditional and new crafting techniques and a more industrial way of working. The featured craft products are Rose socksand Grandmother's Squareby Tuula Kunnas, Birch bark handbagby Auli Vasara, as well as Dancing Shoes and Porcini Stool by COMPANY. The spaces between the stamps on the sheet are filled with drawings that illustrate different crafting techniques.
