The Bottom Of My Graphic 45 Red Rubber Stamps Turned White

I have been cleaning some unused stamps from graphic 45. I had never inked them and was storing them in one of Tim's zipped stamp notebooks. They had turned white on the rubber bottom part of each stamp. It happened to four different sets. One set also had two stamps that had turned black and smelled. I was able to clean them all up using a stamp cleaner/conditioner, but one of the stamps that had turned black still smells a bit even after washing it. Has anyone ever had this happen to their stamps? What can I do to keep it from happening again?

My Mother Passed Away

My mother passed away July 15th, and I really miss her. I haven't felt like doing much since then. The birthday card I was working on for her July 31st birthday is still laying there on my craft table. The saddest thing about it is that my brother and sister did not seem to even care. I will never understand it. How could anyone hurt their mother this way?
