Comment: Penny, I received your Magpie Journal and I really love it! The cover is beautiful and I love that you included the picture of the magpie on it! I like it that you put in info about what was going on in your life for the things you included in the book; it gave me some great ideas for places to visit on our next trip to St. Louis. We like to go to the Botanical Garden for the Japanese Festival at the end of summer, but sometimes we are able to make more than one trip. Thanks also for the Flower cards you tucked in the package; they are bright and cheery - a welcome change from the gray and dreary weather! Thanks so much!

I received the package with my Flat Me doll and Journal in it. My goodness, how very creative. So fun to look at, and all the extras! The fabric is most interesting & beautiful for Day of the Dead. I need to think about how to use it. The little brooch or pocket whimsy is so very fun. Thank you for the adventures!
