New Home for Serendipity!

From Kimberly Wiener of

What a wonderful world! I am so happy to announce that the new owner of Serendipity Stamps is Mitra Friant – the owner of Impression Obsession! Mitra has been a good friend and mentor to me since the beginning. Now it’s 20 years later and I’m ready to RETIRE! At Serendipity Stamps’ website you’ll see that everything is “sold out”. That’s because it’s all at Just look for the Serendipity Stamps link in the left column of the Impression Obsession website.

Thank you for being such wonderful customers! You enabled me to have my dream job! Serendipity always operated from my basement. When it began, my daughters were 6, 4, and 3 and it was such a blessing to be able to work from home all through their school years. Now – instead of heading to my basement to work – I get to head to my basement to STAMP! Wahoo! Keep posting your Serendipity Stamps cards so I can CASE them!

Serendipity’s New Beginning!

I am so happy to announce that the new owner of Serendipity Stamps is Mitra Friant – the owner of Impression Obsession! Mitra has been a good friend and mentor to me for almost 20 years. When I first had the idea to make rubber stamps, I emailed Mitra, the owner of my favorite line of stamps, and asked if she’d tell me how to go about starting a rubber stamp company and she said “Sure!” Is that the nicest thing or what?

It’s a HUGE endeavor transitioning a 20 year old business from one location and owner to another so it will take time for Mitra to get ready to take orders! In the meantime head on over to the Impression Obsession website, visit the blog and register so you’ll know the instant you can start buying Serendipity Stamps products again!

Last Chance on $5 Wood Mounted Christmas!
This Wed – Dec 12th is the last day for the $5 Christmas Sets and Singles in our Bargain Basement – after that they will go to my local thrift store Hillcrest Thrift Shop to help raise money for housing for the homeless.   There are only 1 or 2 of each so don’t wait!  Please share this news with your stamping friends!  Mistletoe Small Set and Nativity Set.


More $5 Stamp Sets – Valentine, Easter, Garden, Alphabet

I know, I know – no one is thinking Easter right now, but you want to be prepared right?   I’m continuing to clear out wood mounted stamps and have added lots of sets and singles to extend through the year!

Need a little gift for someone who has everything?   How about a gorgeous Floral Alphabet letter?   Even non-stampers will appreciate these beautiful letters!  Make a set of note cards to go with the stamp.  Below are just 2 samples.  These stamps are originally $9.50 – now on clearance for $2.00!

Everything you see here and much more is in our Bargain Bin (or at least it was when I sent out this message – there are only 1 or 2 of most!)

December Blog Hop #1

Welcome to the December Hop No. 1!   We have 2 blog hops each month – on the 1st and 3rd Wed.   This month, Serendipity’s designers show off their use of the designs featured in the December Design Sheet.

New Wood Mounted Sale Stamps Added!
I’m discontinuing many of our wood mounted stamps.   I’ve just added several sets of wood mounted stamps for just $5 a set!   This is less than HALF what the same stamps would cost  mounted on cling cushion.   There are also lots of single stamps so you can build your own sets.  There are only 1 or 2 of each set so get ’em quick.   These would make great stocking stuffers!  Find them in our Bargain Basement.

Win!  Win!  Win!
Ready to hop?  As you visit the designers below, be sure to leave comments! You have until December 9th to leave comments!  On December 10th I’ll pick one comment from one blog to win a $20 gift certificate to use at

$5 Wood Mounted Stamp Sets and Indies!
We’re discontinuing most of our wood mounted stamps.   I’ve added dozens of wood mounted stamp sets to our Bargain Basement for just $5 a set!   There are only 1 or 2 of each set so don’t wait!  Plus there are lots of individual wood mounted stamps priced as low as $1!   I’ll be adding more every couple of days so be sure to check in often.  These would make great gifts for your crafty friends.   The Nativity Set used on the card above is still available as is the Heart Topiary Set used below (these would make great gifts for your crafty friends!)

Thanksgiving Break
Like many folks, I was delayed in returning from my Thanksgiving break by the blizzard (2 days in airports and 1 night on a train…).   I will begin shipping the orders you placed over the holiday today but it may take a couple days to get caught up on everyone.   Thank you for your patience!
