Comment: Hi Collette! How wonderful to have you as my partner! The New Year has been interesting so far - had water issues, so finally fixed and had cataract surgery on my right eye last week! That was on my to-do list for this year, now to get the left one done and go on to the other stuff on the list! LOL! Love your HMPC! Hope the rain is slowing down if it is an issue there! All the best! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)

Comment: Thank you. Did you draw her or is this a rubber stamp?.....it's cute and creepy. ;)
Response: It is a digital stamp. Glad you like her=)
Comment: Collette: What a wonderful surprise was in my mailbox when your stacked mini journal arrived. Wow! It is just amazing and I'm sorry that you had such a struggle with it. Because the end result is just great. The folio itself is such a fun combination of papers and patterns that all work together. And I don't know how you managed to fit so many fun goodies inside but each little page and pocket had more and more fun stuff to discover! And such variety! Even the swatches of lace - so pretty. And thank you for the roll of washi tape as well. I do hope that you are feeling better by now as it sounds like you have been having a hard time lately. I do know what you mean about some of the You Tube videos as well - I often have to rewind and repeat over and over to get the gist of what is being demonstrated. I think some You Tubers are better at demonstrating and teaching than others. So once again, many many thanks for this delightful little mini-journal and all it's treasures!
Response: Laurie, You are always so nice; I really appreciate that as I often feel that I miss the mark on projects. I am just so dyslexic when it comes to You Tube videos!!!
Comment: Such a lovely postcard! I really like it, thanks so much.
Response: So glad you like it!!

Thank you so much for your November RAK #6 - 5 Christmas Postcards. I did get to use 2 of them this year and will use the other Postcards next year. They were all so cute. My favorite is the Squirrel 🐿️ holding the cup of cocoa saying Baby it's cold outside. It's perfect for today as it's so cold and our street is like a solid sheet of ice. Plus, I'm getting ready to have Cup of cocoa myself! The little Lamb 🐑 is so cute, too. I'm sorry for the late Thank You. I thought I had kept up with all of my mail, so I'm very glad you checked to see if I received. I hope your Christmas was good and that you have a New Year filled with many blessings and love!!
