And ok I've got to ask how come you only joined one group?

Dansari on Mar 13, 2013:

Ugh delete my last msg! Lol it's late and I accidentally clicked leave comment on my phone

Aw that's very sweet of you to offer! I'd love you to if you really don't mind and have time? I wouldn't know where to start with something like that!

In exchange I could send you a postcard of Katoomba? Lol joking! I'd find something nicer!

Dansari on Mar 12, 2013:

Thank you so much! I love the letter set and will definately be using it! I really liked your little "you have received mail from" tag as well! Did you make them? It's a great idea!

Lol is it weird sending each other stupid when we live so close? You're my closest "mail out" so far lol. Second closest was in Japan!

Thanks again :)
