Default Which 5 stamp sets would you save if the house was on fire?

Im just wondering which stamp sets have become the most beloved among avid stampers....so, if you only had to choose 5, what would they be?

Well, I saved all my pictures to disks and put them (along with a bunch of other stuff) in my waterproof fire safe. So just in case something happened my photos would be o.k. So, since I am saving pictures it only stands to reason that I have to have stamp sets so I can scrap them again right. Choosing just 5 though.... dang that's hard! I have 130+ sets....

I would say...
SU sets would be
Heartfelt Thanks
Lovely As A Tree
Godspeed
Loads of Love

My 5th set would be
from Missy B Designs
the Alexa set.

Dang, that was tough! Fun thread!

Actually not. Waterproof fire safes are NOT heat proof. Everything inside will melt in a fire. Give a copy of the discs to a friend to store too.

Understanding this totally for fun, all of them! LOL

My photos and entire comuter is on 2 seperate zip drives I have in a fireproof safe! Originals are in a safety deposit box along with all our others important papers, photo copies only at the ranch!

My stamps are all unmounted (99%) and are in 6 snap photo albums, so I can snatch and run!

We increased our Homeowners Insurance for the office..took pictures of everything and gave them to our insurance guy. You never really think of how much that stuff is worth do you? I know I never sat down and figured it out until we renewed the insurance. I told dh we had better increase it. Good thing we did. I''d never be able to replace all my stamps other wise!

That is why I purchased a computer program to inventory all of my crafting supplies! Our insurance agent has a copy of it in our files! It is amazing how much you have when you start adding it up!
