Comment: Oh what fun, I love how you packaged this swap. How interesting - ribbon from Paris and London! I think my fav is the bee ribbon. I have a feeling this little box will be empty before long.
Comment: Thank you for the cool skull ornament (very steampunk)! I love the Day of the Dead ornament you made too. Also, much thanks for the stuffed grab bag of Halloween goodies!!! Very generous of you! xo
Comment: Hello Joyce,
The very first thing I want to recognize you for is your presentation, the way in which you put together, labeled, and packaged the items. I loved the paper, used stamps, blings, and ribbons. I really look forward to using these materials.
Comment: Yay! I love the atc you created for me. I am excited to see what the page looks like when it is complete. The embossing is wonderful. Thank you for resending. I know that is a pain in the arse. I am mailing the cemetery one to you today!
Comment: Itâ€™s appropriate that you are named JOYce because opening this package brought me so much joy. Itâ€™s fabulous. So many fun surprises tucked everywhere and I ADORE sleepy hollow so that was SO COOL that you incorporated that in the journal. This is a work of art and I will treasure it always
Response: I am so glad you like it - I had so much fun making it for you. Sleepy Hollow was so much fun and I hope to go there again this fall! Have fun filling it!
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful photo and the great story to accompany it. I've heard of the Johnstown flood but had no idea about that cemetery or that unmarked site area. What a compelling tale! xoxo
Response: Thank you! We had our party tonight, in fact it just ended. Sadly, we are having a horrible storm that's lasted all day, so a lot of last minute cancelations. However, had about 25 people so it was a good crowd.
Comment: Thank you so much for the amazing care package! I cannot wait to read the book and the cookies and hot chocolate look awesome! The bat pin is absolutely adorable and I'm loving the picture of the lovely victorian zombie lady. I wish I could give more then one heart :)
Comment: Wow, Joyce! I love the stuff you sent me for the I Love Black Cats swap! Thank you. To start with, the lettering on the front of the envie was stunning. The other thing was the presentation. Who doesn't like a wrapped giftðŸ˜very nice. The cat bag/pouch is so cool. Can't wait to use it. With a surprise inside ðŸ˜€ love it. The strawberry scent of the lip balm reminds me of the 70's for some reason. Thanks also for glittery cat stickers and cute card.. You're so sweet and thoughtful. I love everything! ðŸ’Ÿâ£ðŸ’Ÿâ£ðŸ’Ÿâ£ðŸ’Ÿ
Comment: Thank you so much for the coolest item ever. My little nieces are coming this weekend and they will love this! I just love swapping with you and finding others that really love Halloween! Hugs, Mona
Response: I'm so glad you like it! I work for the company and that is one of my favorite kits we've had. I made one last year and hung it like a garland. Enjoy! Thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: I love how you made this box look vintage and elegant! I keep petting the velvet cat stickers, haha! Thank you for the socks, adorable bat pin and other goodies inside too :D Happy Halloween!!
Comment: Love the card and the envie too! Those are some awesome tapes and ribbons you used.
It's still "summer" here! The current joke here in Florida is that yes the calendar says it's fall, yes the leaves are on the ground, but the leaves are still attached to the trees that were knocked down by the hurricane! Lol!
Thanks again for a wonderful swap!
Comment: Very cute card-hadn't seen so many Halloween washi tapes before. Love the little skeleton guy on the front waving! Thanks also for the extra note card-has my kitty Lenore on it! Thanks for sharing!
Comment: Your gift was so beautifully wrapped I could hardly bring myself to open it...but I did! Thank you :D I am going to read your ghost story tonight when it's dark with a cup of tea. The paper you put it on is so cool! Lovely swap! Thanks a bunch! Happy Halloween!
Comment: Hi Joyce. Thank you so much for the great Halloween card. You did a great job with the washi tape. It is a great decoration for Halloween. Thank you also for the extras. I love the sparkly black cat stickers and the black cat made from punches...very clever!

Response: I am so glad you got it!! I was so worried! I hope you love everything I sent you! Have a great Halloween!
Comment: Thank you so much for all the cool treats! So my 1st guess is pumpkin head 2nd is sleepy hollow is either right?! Lol so much fun!
Response: Oh no, I am sorry, neither are right - want to guess again?? Hint - it's an stop-frame animated movie from the 90's! Yes, your son had it right, it was Nightmare before Christmas which I am watching today while I decorate my house!
Comment: Thank you for the fabulous card and goodies. I so enjoyed you letter and at times it was like reading my own life story. Yes indeed, we would be best of friends that would have to be dragged from the craft room! Love the paper you used for the letter! What fun this time of year is! Hugs, Mona
Comment: Love all the stamped images, Joyce! I think there is only one of them that I have! And I know what you mean about the black ink drying to a grey, but it looks great with a little distressed ink added or water color markers! Thank you so much! Great swap! (love the notecard - I will reuse the front and note on it that I, too, did not make it!)
Comment: Hi there, swap arrived, so excited, wanna open it now. lol I adore the box and all the fun wrappings. I gave 5 now because you're amazing, and I know already it's going to be special opening all this Halloween goodness. Thank you so much Joyce. I'll write after I open in Oct. OMGosh that is so long to wait. Halloween Hugs, Sandy
Response: I had so much fun putting your swap together! I couldn't wait to send it to you, although I know that increases the temptation to open early! Hope you love everything I sent! Thanks for the rating and heart!
Comment: wow! your ATC is AMAZING! I can't stop touching all the embelishments you included :P I do dress up and put out candies on Halloween, but don't really decorate the house for it anymore. I lived with housemates last year during a research visit to Rhode Island, one of my housemates is really into decorating during different holidays, and I have to say we had the most fun decorating for Halloween !
Comment: Thank you for all of the extras you sent. Definitely unexpected,but I absolutely loved it. I also seem to have a washi tape addiction. I don't have as many as you, but I do find myself wondering why I have all these tapes what I'm supposed to do with them and why do i keep buying them. ðŸ˜
Comment: Oh my goodness!!! I LOVE old photos and I think its quite awesome that you are sharing those of your family from the 40's with me!! I also love the card and old telegram sheets. Thanks so much for such a fun swap!!
Comment: AMAZING!!! I loved everything - thank you so much! This swap came just in time...been having some health issues and this box of Halloween awesomeness was just what I needed. The items are all wonderful, but the packaging was very nice and really added that special touch. Good job, hon!!! xo
Response: I'm so glad you loved it, I had so much fun putting it together! Glad that it brightened your day and hope you're feeling better! Thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: Joyce...if I could rate you a 20 I would! I absolutely loved your swap - the presentation was awesome as were all the stickers! I finally met someone who loves Halloween as much as I do, and it shows! Thank you so much for all the time and effort you put into this swap, right down to the Halloween stamps!!
Comment: Wow! My package was more than special! Thank you for such a fabulously spooktacular goody box! I adore the box so much and it is now on my Halloween shelf. What perfect items inside for crafting which I am knee dep in right now. I am the lucky one that your back and you were my partner! Yeah!!!! Hugs, Mona
Response: So glad you liked it Mona! I am thrilled to be Halloween crafting again and look forward to swapping with you soon!
Comment: I found you!!!! You didn't put the swap name on your postcard so it took me awhile to find you. So sorry for the delay in rating. I had a bag of mail that was stuck into the closet. Thank you for the adorable card. I live in Bushwick, Brooklyn. So Maspeth is actually closer to me than Red Hook is. I do make it out to Red Hook a few times a year to hit IKEA though. You're the first swapper that I've "met" from NYC at all though.
Response: Hi there, sorry I didn't put the swap name on the postcard, that's so unlike me. Thanks for the rating and the heart! In the meantime, the DH and I have bought a place in Jackson Heights, Queens and have been here since the end of last year. I am originally from Queens, so I'm thrilled!
Comment: Hello! Thank you for all of the wonderful goodies, I especially liked the tea card! I've never seen that before! Also, Round Rock is only 20 minutes from Austin, TX, but very far from corpus christi :) Thank you again, and happy swapping!
Comment: Thank you so much for all the wonderful Halloween goodies. I did not get the cross stitch done for this Halloween but I look forward to having them for next year. You sent so many fun, unusual things, I can't name them all. My family had fun with the punching pumpkin pen and the melting witch. The black cat coin purse and jewelry are awesome. I loved the charms, deco tape and all the paper items. The candy is so yummy, I'm allowing myself one a day so it will last. Everything was wrapped so beautifully I saved all of it, bags, ribbon, tape and tags. Thank you again for such a generous, fun Halloween swap. â™¥â™¥â™¥
Comment: Thanks so much for the Halloween card and extra stickers and post card! Love them! I also love the vintage Halloween card envelope with pumpkin men, where did you find that? Did you make it using wrapping paper? Very cool! Happy Halloween!
Response: Thanks for the heart! The vintage bag with the pumpkins is from a set that also includes 2 other bag styles, tags and stickers. It is from the paper co. Cavallini and I know you can buy it at Paper Source (yay!) But I image you could find it at other fine paper stores as well.
Comment: Oh you sweet woman. I sure appreciated your nice note to me and the photos terrific. I was worried you might send me the 500 you took in Paris. Now, I am envious of you but I don'tcare to fly so....Drop me a line once in awhile love hearing from you..
Comment: Too bad I can not give you endless hearts,cause I would if I could.Your fabulous Easter Egg is OUTSTANDING.Looks good enough to eat.What a wonderful piece of art.Thank you so much.Indeed fabulous! Your package was the lift I needed,I appreciate the stamps and the cute extra Easter Goodies.It was like Christmas in March,really made mefeel good.
Comment: Hi Joyce, thank you very much for the cool tiny ephemera and for going to the trouble of trying to match my likes! I will definitely be able to use what you sent me. Also, thank you for your kind words about my artwork. Have a wonderful Spring, Cynthia
Comment: Great package Joyce.
I do not do too many craft project. My main intrest is postcards and owls. But I do like to join some of these swaps to get items to swap. You hi it great though. The owls were great, as was everything else. Thanks for a neat package
Comment: I love the steam punk style & coloration on the outside of my sweet kit & the delightful goodies on the inside. The dividers are great too! So happy I had you as a partner in one of my favorite groups.
Comment: I loved the return address stamp! Where did you get it? I would love to have one!
Response: You can get a personalized return address stamper from Paper Source (shamelessly plugging where I work!) They have a great online site if you don't live near one. I customized a design for all my swaps I send! Thank you for the rating and the heart!
Comment: What a FABULOUS washi envelope I found in my mailbox tonight. You made my day with just the envelope. Then I opened it up and you made my week with the pretty tapes you shared with me and your handwritten note to me!! :) Have a wonderful weekend, and happy spring.
Comment: Thanks for the great ATC. My Star Wars loving family will love it. I'll have to look for the Washi tape for my daughter.
Response: Oh, so glad to hear you're all Star Wars fans! Thanks for the rating and heart! May the force be with you!
FYI, there is no brand labeling on the star wars washi tape unfortunately, but my husband works for Scholastic Books so maybe you could try on their website.
Comment: Thank you so much for going the extra mile and replacing smished earring. You were very kind to send the extra charm so that I could repair the damaged ones as well as the replacement earrings. GREAT SWAPPER, very creative/crafty, and highly recommended to swap/tag with. :)
Response: You are very welcome! I sent you a message regarding the telegraph paper.
Enjoy the earrings!
Comment: Thank you for the great vintage Statue of Liberty card, rubber stamps, and your cool blue lettering! NYC is my favorite place in the world, and I am excited to visit the Statue for the second time later this spring. (I made sure to book a crown ticket :) Happy Tuesday!
Comment: Thanks so much for the wonderful assortment of items! I love the telegram pages, the tiny postcards and the postcard tag. The purple doily is perfect for a project I am working on right now. Thanks again!! :)
Comment: You really write a nice letter - I enjoyed your "washi story." Your nicely decorated washi envelope really made my day! Thank you for including those tapes for me, along with a lovely washi stationery page for me to use. I am going to write back for sure. :) P.S. You work in a paper store - how totally cool! ;)
Comment: I love my skull Valentine card!! He's so cute! I may just hold on to him instead of using him this year, but I do have a sister who would love him, too!! Nah, I'll keep him!! I've added your book recommendation to my Amazon want list! Thank you so much for a great swap!
Comment: WOW! Joyce, this was a beyond special swap!! I love, love, love the playbill from 1960..the year I was born...with the ticket stubs! Everytime I reached into the envelope, I found another treasure I loved!! The wallpaper & upholstery samples will be fun and that vintage card is awesome! The envelopes are so cool! You included so many things that I will use and I appreciate all of it!! Thank you for such a wonderful swap!!
Comment: Oh my goodness! I am so excited! I love the cute papers you wrapped all these goodies in! Thank you so much! And you fit them in the envelope! I have taken a picture of everything in a pretty red bowl so I will remember this forever! Thank you so very much. I hope you enjoy your 25 days of Christmas as much as I know I will. ðŸ˜€ðŸ˜€ðŸ˜€ðŸ˜€ðŸ˜€ðŸŽ„ðŸŽ„ðŸŽ„
Comment: I love how you did your washi decorating on the envelope! Each side was different and the back was neat with how it formed a triangle. I'm going to have to try that. The goodies inside were great too. Fun! :)
Comment: Thank you so much for all the cool Halloween stuff! I had a really great time going through all of it, and I've already been able to use the rubber stamp. If I get really daring I might try planting those pumpkin seeds! Hope you have a great Halloween!
Comment: Thank you so much Joyce! And the answer to question is YES! go to Salem about twice a year. Its bout 40 mins. from me! I love this time of year as well!! My VERY favorite things in the bag were my glow in the dark socks and my kitty mini purse!!!! Thanks again!! HAPPY FALL!!! :-)
Comment: I'm pretty sure my co-workers think I'm **NUTZ**! I opened this at work and squealed like a 9 year old girl meeting Justin Bieber for the first time (if that's who 9 year olds squeal over these days)!!! I love everything! Donna Noble and 10 are an unbeatable Doctor/companion combo. My Doctor is 4, I watched re-runs in the 80's and fell in love with British television, but especially Doctor Who then! But, all the Doctors are amazing!!! I'm so totally jealous that you got to stalk the cast while they were in NYC! My sister and I were in New York the next summer, so sad we missed the filming excitement! I would have totally been **fan-girling**. Thank you so much for an awesome Pocket Letter!!! All the goodies are so cool! Love the tiny Dalek flags and the TARDIS sticky notes! My friend got me that banana tea for Christmas one year! All your added touches were amazing! Thank you so so much!!!
Response: I am so happy that you liked my pocket letter! I am patiently waiting and counting down the days until the start of the new season!
Comment: Thank you so much! This swap looks amazing, the wrapping alone is worth a heart! I can't wait to start opening them. I hope you have an amazing Halloween and an exciting and wonderful party! :)
Comment: This package is amazing! I wanted to open up all of the envelopes right away but I am going to be patient and open them one at a time. Thank you for putting so much thought and care into the package. It really shows and it's very much appreciated. I have a feeling this may be favorite swap :)
Response: I'm so happy you liked it!! I had such a great time making it! Enjoy and Happy Halloween!
Comment: Joyce! The cards are awesome, thank you :) You are definitely an addict! Now I don't worry that my obsession is out of control.......I have a ways to go......LOL! I love the idea of finding stationary stores at all your travels.......I usually find the quilt shops, but I may have to add stationary stores to my list :) Thank you again
Comment: Thanks for the lovely B&W card set and for the fun springtime notecard:-) I hope your angeled swap has reached you by now and that it arrived safely to your hands. Thanks also being so understanding about KattB68. Happy Swapping!

Comment: I really enjoyed your "Hi There" washi card and samples too. I know what you mean about collecting, collecting and more collection (ha, did I say collecting?) washi tape. I'll be hosting more of these washi card swaps so we can use, use, use (yes, I said "use") our washi tapes! LOL!
Comment: I love the ATC you sent! The theme is perfect too since I'm originally from NY (Long Island actually) and my mom has been hinting that it's time for me to come home to visit. Even the card and envie you sent in were cool! Thank you!
Comment: If I could give you five hearts it would be done. I love the way this ATC came out! Just perfect for me! Its going to be a keeper! The notecard is made of some great paper too. I just love the way that it feels. Ill be keeping it and using it for an atc related craft Im sure. =)
Response: Thanks so much for the rating and heart! The notecard is made from paper imported from Nepal. It's one of my favorites! So nice to know it will be reused to create more art!
Comment: Oooh! So many gorgeous tapes- and I only had a few of them already! A miracle indeed! You have an awesome collection and I love these that you shared with me :) Beautiful envelope, too! Thank you for very happy mail!!
Comment: Wow, what a beautiful swap!! Thank you SO much for everything! <3 I can't get over those pumpkin pop rocks... I had no idea they even existed! *o* I love american candy and all the fun flavors you guys have, we can only hope Canada will catch up someday... lol! Hope you have a fabulous Halloween and that you're enjoying your weekend! Thanks again! :D <3
Comment: Hi Joyce, wow I was so amazed by your cute little box wrapped in amazing paper... and your sweet letter! The tiny treasures inside the box... well I just LOVE everything! The little white bunny pendant with flowers is my fave! I have to find a necklace for it! Your collection sounds pretty amazing by the way! Thank you so much for joining my swap and sending me this happy bunny mail!
Comment: Hi Joyce,
I thought I had already rated you, but I must have not. Thank you for the cute decorated pill bottle you sent me, and for all the goodies. I would never have thought about a mummy. Rebecca
Comment: What a wonderful care package Boo Box. I love it. The spider tissue was a great clue of what might be in the box. The skeleton pen was so cute. Thank you for the rubber stamps. The handmade skeleton hand and black rose were a great touch. The eye ball and candy in the caldrens were a great idea. Just love the spooky stickers, tags and the scary cut outs! The pencils, erasers and skeleton ring make for a fun-filled care package! You were very creative and worked hard on this. I really appreciate receiving from a great swapper! Thank you so much for a fantastic care package!!! Susan
Comment: Wow!! Thank you so much for the awesome ornament! I love it and it is hanging up right now. I would love to do a Halloween tree but my cats would destroy it so for now it is hanging nice and high but in good viewing range ; )
Comment: Thanks for such an amazing box of goodies! I love it all- especially the skull goblet! I will have to drink everything out of that! :D You included so many awesome things, I just love them all! Wish I could give you more hearts! Happy Halloween!!
Comment: Hi Joyce! Thank you for the lovely letter and I loved your feather washi tape. I have not seen that one before. I would love to write you back since we seem to have a lot of common interests. Have a great day.
Comment: Oh Joyce, what a great envie of Halloween goodies, I'm excited to use them! Thanks so much! Everything from the outside envie sticker( spider bites made me crack up!) and tape ( really cool) and every thing inside was spot on! Thanks so much!
Comment: WOW ... Now THIS was a great swap! From presentation to item selection, you really made my day super-special. I'm still admiring all the goodies (card, pencil, tags, ribbon, erasers -- even that tiny white mouse). Thank you so much, Joyce! â¤
Comment: Thanks Joyce! I love the items you selected for me! The ribbons are great! The embellishments and cool papers! I just love it all! Thanks so much! It was a pleasure having you join my swap! Take care and have a wonderful weekend!

Comment: Thank You So Very muCh for the Birthday Card! I managed to wait until my birthday to Open. I love the vellum paper with the words and phrases. Loved the washi all can be used on my Project Life, Layouts and Smash Book. Thank You!
Comment: I loved the envelope!!! I also enjoyed the little journal cards you included... though they did end up being a glitter bomb and I look like a "Twilight" vampire left in the sun too long right now. ;) Thanks for the swap!
Response: Glad you liked it! Sorry about the deluge of glitter - however, everyone needs a little sparkle in their day! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Hi Joyce! Thank you for the nice card and note. I absolutely loved all the ribbon you sent! I can reuse the little bag you sent the ribbon in too, that was so cute!

Response: Glad you liked it! Thanks for the heart! would love to swap ATCs with you!
Comment: Thanks so much for the delightful owl ATC--I love the steampunk style you put together with background and the amazing owl stamp. I found that owl just AFTER I had sent my owl ATC! I had to buy him though because he doesn't have to be used for Halloween only. This ATC is definitely going on my display panel!
Response: Glad you liked the ATC. Yes, isn't he a great stamp! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Joyce, Hi. Your Halloween atc's are marvelous! You spoiled me by giving me two of them. I LOVE them both. You have such awesome talent! I am excited to add your creations to my collection. Thank you again and many many hearts sent your way.
Response: I am so glad you liked the ATCs. I had such a great time making them! Thanks for the heart!

Comment: I enjoy this swap also. It had been a while since I had read this story so I had to refresh my memory. But I enjoyed the refresher course. Very good art work on this ATC. I enjoy the different views that we have. You are very creative with all the different art forms on the card.
Thanks and happy Swapping.
Response: I am glad you liked you atc. I reread alice in wonderland and through the looking glass about once a year and find something new with each reading. Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Holy crap sister! What a load of crap you sent. I look forward to using all the items you sent in my crafting. They say one women's crap is another women's treasure! Love the Prada bag. Hugs, Mona
Response: Yeah! So glad you liked the items, glad they found a new home! I can't even remember where the Prada bag came from, but I have been hanging on to it for years so it was time to send it on it's way. Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Ah, Joyce...thank you so much for a stellar collection of tiny ephemera! Opening your envelope was like getting two presents...first your sweet note, and then the sweetly packaged ephemera. You are a super swapper!
Response: How wonderful that you enjoyed the items! I love getting little envelope full of tiny tidbits! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Joyce, I love this ATC--every bit of it. The background collage colors and texture word so nicely, the owls are beautiful with the perfect touch of feathers and the wet embossed design tops it off so nicely, This will be one of my favorites--displayed somewhere on art room shelves and not in my binder collection! Thanks so much!
Response: I am so happy you liked it! I had such a fun time making them. Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Thank you the package was great. I didnt find a note or the swap name, but it was the top swap on my list so I figured it out fast. Thank you for being my partner.
Response: So glad you liked it! There should have been a small card with the swap info on it - I usually make sure to include it in every swap with a note - I am sorry if I forgot - Enjoy your papers and thanks for the heart!
Comment: Thank you veru much for the nice selection of papers, you deserve an extra heart for finding some of the papers, that I am especially looking for (the christmas-ones are really nice:)) And I can not believe, that you sent on may 1st, and I received on may 4th - from the US to DK - amazing:)
Response: So glad you liked the papers! That is fast! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: OMG! I love it all! I really lucked out on this envie of goodies. I just adore the necklace, how fabulous! I am looking forward to trying the black punch. I always have people over for Halloween so this is perfect. Love the envie and all my other goodies. I love it when an envie arrives that makes my day! Hugs, Mona
Response: So glad you liked all the items! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Actually you should get 10 hearts for this package! There is so much good stuff I am amazed! ....I can use it all if I ever get enough time to make something. Also I have a niece who does beading and I will probably share some of it with her since she doesn't have much money to buy supplies.
Response: I am happy you like the supplies - glad someone else will be able to use them! Enjoy and thanks for the heart!
Comment: What an absolutely beautiful ATC. I really like it a lot! Thank you so much for a wonderful swap. : ) P.S. I love the octopus tentacle in the background! It will go in my "octopus room" with my other favorite stuff.
Response: Glad you liked it! Had to put the octopus in when I read your profile!
Comment: Thank you for this fabulous ATC. It is truly beautiful. You have a great eye for design, placement, color and composition. Looks more like a seasoned artist than any kind of novice. A beautiful addition to my collection. I look forward to swapping again. Hugs, Mona
Response: Thank you so much for the compliment! I am very glad you liked it!
Comment: Next time you do an altered matchbox swap, you should really make the whole matchbox instead of just the inner drawer part. If you're doing a shrine thing (like this) you may be altering the outer part to open differently, but it's usually required to alter them inside and out. Just something to keep in mind.
Response: Thanks so much for the advice! It was my first ever matchbox and I had no idea what I was doing!
Comment: Thank you for sending me a message to tell me the swap was delayed due to Sandy. It was still pretty fast! I really love that "dark" letterset with the girl and animals in party hats you sent me. Could you tell me which brand it is? I really appreciate the address stickers too. Thanks for this nice package!
Response: Hi. Glad you liked your items. I have to tell you, that stationery was from another swap, they sent me a bunch, so I passed some on, so I do not know the brand.
Comment: Thank you for the great package. I LOVED the "suprise" things - where you ripped them - one was about a president and the other for a pencil!!!! WOW!! And the key and the really cool notecard with stamps on it! Thank you :)
Comment: Thanks so much for the items. I really like the pouch they came in. I'm looking forward to trying the product samples and the rest of the supplies will work great for smash books! Thanks again.

Comment: OK I used to be able to write that small (before arthritic fingers). And I used to have students who wrote that small on all of their tests and school papers LOL Man, you packed a ton of great stuff onto your PC - plus cute drawings and doodles. Love the story about your Mom's PC contest and thanks for the artist/musician links. Complete awesomeness on a beautiful PC. <3<3<3<3<3
Response: I asked my mom about the prize she won the other day for the milk postcard and she told me she thinks it was a gift certificate for a grocery store! Thanks for the heart!
This card is absolutely perfect. When we talked about gathering postcards for the lions' birthday, we listed various famous lions we'd try to get cards from (NY Public library, Chicago art institute). You nailed it. many thanks!
Response: I walked past the lions at the New York City Library the other day and I wondered when their birthday was and how old they were. I am going to have to research that. Thanks for the heart!
