Hmmm, seems I'm missing something. Oh yeah! The book, "Ruby"!Kidding of course, I saw the book right off. Haven't read this and it looks great. Thank you so much for all of it. I don't know what to do first. Fix my hair, read the book, find the key ring (darn cats!!). Have a great day! Denise

Friday, April 6, 2007

I received this wonderful package from Jayne on the 30th of March. I made myself wait until I got to the house before opening. The book was "Sam's Letters to Jennifer" by James Patterson, that I had wanted to read. She followed the theme so wonderfully. Jayne sent note cards in their own holder, magnetic kitties, as I do love them, to hold notes on a file or refrig, post its, one with a kitty and the other one with the prettiest pink flower. She also sent me a silver key chain with my initial and a flower on it, and a dolphin ornament for the rear view mirror of my car. I was so stunned as this is my first swap of anything. I felt like Christmas had come really early this year. Thank you so very much Jayne I love all the pretties. :) Michelle

Welcome Shawnee...
We have a new member to our swap!
Hi! THANK YOU SO MUCH Denise!! I received my book "Needled to Death" by Maggie Sefton and the bookmark today. That bookmark is really beautiful - I'd like to know how you did that. Looks like something I'd have to have a magnifying glass to do, but, I'd like to know how. It's really really pretty. It's even pretty on both sides! And the needles were a cute touch! As soon as I get my camera situation fixed I'll post pictures to share with everyone. Thank you so much! I can't wait to read the book. And, then if anyone is interested in reading this book and wants to "swap" I really like doing that. It's the only way I can justify to my husband all of the books I have!! After he built the sixth bookshelf I promised I'd stop buying new ones unless I swapped out some used ones!! Thanks again. You are such a sweetie. Sandy
