Organizing Our Coin Collection

Collecting stamps, bills and coins is just one of the many hobbies that my husband has had since he was in high school. He has actually accumulated a lot over the years, and he has his own system of keeping them organized. But sometimes, he gets too busy that he hasn’t had the time to organize his collection.

Anyway, he’s planning on going through them again and organizing them. He will also be looking for coins that he can trade to other collectors. He said that there are still a number of coins that he would like to have. He’s also thinking of expanding his collection which could include customized coins like those coins online that we saw a couple of days ago. We think that it would be cool if we could have our own customized coin that has a design that best represents our family. For now though, we are just thinking of how to properly arrange the many coins that we have here are home.

I Have Finally Joined Postcrossing !

I have mentioned before that I plan to put up another blog that will serve as a home for my new hobby, collecting postcards. My husband is also excited about it since he will also get to feature his coin and stamp collection.

The blog, Creations & Collections, has finally been launched and so far , we have made a couple of posts about the postcards that I have received and the new commemorative stamps that has been added to my husband’s collection.

I have been swapping postcards with the other moms from PMC and so far, I have sent and received quite a number of them. A couple of days ago, I received a total of six postcards and I can’t wait to make a blog post on each of them. I have so far made a post for three of them.

It was also through the other moms from PMC that I have learned about PostCrossing. It is a site wherein a member gets to send and receive postcards from random members from anywhere in the world.

Initially, a new member like me is allowed to send five postcards. I was assigned to send postcards to members from Taiwan, Finland, New Zealand, USA and Russia. My husband was suppose to mail them today but it has been raining so hard since yesterday that he wasn’t able to leave the house.

Receiving postcards from different parts of the world is also a great way to learn about the cultures of various countries. I am looking forward to receiving postcards from other members ; it’s like taking a peek of what their country has to offer.
