    About Us

    Leslie Elledge

    I’m the owner of Alpha Stamps. I live in the San Francisco Bay Area. I have a background in theatrical costume design but switched to graphic design about 20 years ago (as the itinerant lifestyle didn’t suit me).

    This is my “everything” blog… a place to post some of the astoundingly weird things I come across on the Web, a place to list updates to the Alpha Stamps site, a place to post new artwork (my own or work from my talented friends and internet penpals), and to note anything design-related that strikes my fancy.

    If you sign up for the newsletter (see box at right), you’ll receive an email when new products are added to the site (or special sale pricing is announced). (You’ll not receive an email every time the blog is updated.)

    Kim Ayers (aka Miz Bella)

    I am the Design Team Coordinator for Alpha Stamps and I love working with the very fabulous Leslie Elledge and our talented Design Team.

    Living in another place and time, floating in between curiosities and strangeness you will find me to be charming, disarming, eclectic, eccentric, odd, macabre, wicked, witty, brainy, and bold. Coffee fanatic, aromatherapist, thrift store junkie, and like a crazy magpie I am attracted to things that sparkle and shine – or at least at one time they did. Mediums I enjoy working with are mixed-media, altered-art, creating dolls and jewelry.

    My home, Mockingbird Manor is shared by 3 children, 7 animals, naughty fairies, ghosts from the old cemetery and 1 husband who puts up with it all.

    If you’d like to drop me an email please send it to bella@alphastamps.com.
