First day of issue

Love stamp dedicated at Dallas Love Field


A first-day of issue ceremony for the 2016 Forever Love Stamp is taking place today at, appropriately enough – Dallas Love Field Airport.

(A great reminder to get some Valentines to mail out this year…}

This Forever stamp heart design was created by artist Yulia Brodskaya, who made the heart using the ancient art of quilling – also called paper filigree— which involves rolling and shaping narrow strips of paper, laying them on their edges, and gluing them in place to form intricate designs.
