That being said, I do appreciate whatever you come up with.

I try to go above and beyond

I try to send the best package I can come up with. Every project is done with all the love and artistry I can create for you. I send what I would like to receive and go for the hearts. I understand we are all at different artistic levels and I do give hearts even if you don't add extras if I feel and see a ton of effort to make it special for me (nice notes, decorated envelope, pretty stamp etc)
