LOVE letter exchange
« on: March 03, 2024, 03:03:13 PM »
Since, hopefully, everyone has received their Valentine by now, I thought I would share some photos. If you saw my video on Instagram, you saw that originally I had included a square of chocolate in the center of my Victorian Puzzle Purse. I took it to the post office to see how much it would cost to mail. Because of the little bump in the envelope, it jacked the price up to $4.50 per envelope! So sorry folks, but the chocolate had to come out.  :-\ Hope you enjoyed it anyway.  :-*

I posted a mini DIY for the Victorian Puzzle Purse .

Yup - truly beautiful. There was/is not a chance of moi ever even attempting to open the puzzle. I don't want to spoil it. It will go with the other lovely envelopes and pieces of beauty. Safely locked away in my writing box.
Such talent, and passed along to mere mortal(s). Not enough superlatives to describe the puzzles and cards. I feel so honoured. Truly.

Mark.

Apologies for taking so long to write. Erica, I was blown away by this. Truly beautiful and so lovingly put together. When I opened the puzzle piece, I had the biggest smile.

THANK YOU SO MUCH! I'll treasure it. And it didn't need the chocolate!
