We now live in such a consumerist society that often, we find pleasure in our shopping finds. Recently, though, I’ve found myself enjoying finding new ways to work with things around the house.

For example, we have a few of these corporate premiums at home, a kind of Rubik’s Cube:

I took stamps I collected over many years, stamps that didn’t make it into my stamp album for one reason or another (perhaps because of some tiny imperfection, maybe) and created this out of that Rubik Cube-like corporate premium :

It makes a handy paperweight, and it’s fun to twist the cube in different ways so that it’s never exactly the same. More importantly, it’s a wonderful reminder of the hours I used to spend on stamp collecting.
