Comment: Jackie, I love the mini zine you created! The illustrations you put with each holiday are so cool; I especially like the one for National Library Day and the Minneapolis-St. Paul two-page spread. Even the envelope was nicely decorated with my favorite little birds from the beach and that beautiful Canadian goose on the back. Great ideas and a very nice job!!! Thanks so much! Oh, and the cat charm made it just fine; I really appreciate it! Happy swapping!!

Comment: Thank you for the great zine and extras 💜
Comment: One of the most fun things about your April zine is that you didn't use any of the same holidays as I did. Enjoyed all your illustrations and so enjoyed the extra zine, I love books too! Thanks so much.
