NEWSFLASH..... we have here in TX had a big mercury spill in the post office that sorts our mail and gets it to us. So I have received nothing since last Thursday..,,,8/9/18....and there is no promise when the mail will begin again to be delivered. Not to fear all mail does not go thru that building to get to you. So if you haven't gotten a rating from me this is probably why .... I am still waiting for it to be delivered hoping this ends soon...... will keep all informed. Well that was interesting..... GLAD it's over and mail seems to be running smoothly both ways........

Comment: Hi Kate! I adore what you came up with for this swap, so beautiful and creative! You totally nailed this technique. I have tried a couple of things to send to my partner but so far no luck with something I like so this gave me a great bit of inspiration to take a different route. Thank you so much, and for the map notecard and postcard - yay!! I don't like or dislike okra, lol. My husband is the cook in this house and I don't think either of us would go out of our way to find it. We're not very adventurous with food :-D
Response: Awww I am so glad you liked Ms SeaHorse.... I really enJOYed the way she came out.....OKRA is YUM.....but then I am dyed in the wool SOUTHERN.... haha! Thank you for your kind words and the hearted 5!

Comment: Thank you for the BEAUTIFUL ATC cards!! The envelope and card inside were great too. You did a beautiful job thank you so much!!!

Comment: thank you for the awesome art postcard and special thanks for the gorgeous stamps! Sometimes I'm really surprised that Hungarian folk dance is recognized internationally. We don't really appreciate it, and most of us have a strong aversion, because the wildly nationalists simply appropriated folk dance.
Response: Hi... Oh I am so sorry to hear about the folk dance causing you aversion.....that saddens me. I am glad that you liked the post card.... I liked it.... hope it makes your collection SMILE.... thank you for the hearted 5!!!!!
