What a wonderful first exchange!
« on: September 14, 2021, 08:17:15 AM »
Hello

This is the first time Iíve posted and the first time Iíve participated in an exchange. Thank you so much to Erica for organising.

Iíve just picked up from my doormat (on a very miserable rainy day in London) my first exchange envelope. Wow! Iím blown away by the quality and by the thoughtfulness. Itís a really wonderful thing that a complete stranger from across the world has taken the time and trouble to send me such a thing of beauty.

Iíd like the contact the person who sent it via this board to thank them if possible but a search of members doesnít bring them up by name so Iím hoping that Nicole in Austin Texas will know who she is and know how much I appreciate her artistry and kindness.

Much love from London, UK!

Laura

I was about to say the same thing as Erica--I have a hunch that I know which Nicole in Austin it was ( @nicole.t ) since she and I are penpals, and her calligraphy is exceptional.  Hopefully this will allow you two to connect!

Best,
Robert
