i've been wanting to carve a cute stamp with my name to use on the back of things i make. the first one i made, i forgot to flip the image so i carved the entire thing backwards. duh, joleen! here is my second attempt and i am quite happy with it.

Joleen, It is weird but i saw a dream from you last night. I was visiting at your home in States :D

btw how often do you check your yahoo e-mails? I posted a e-mail for you!

And I love the pretty bird goodies you receives, I will host pretty bird round #2 swap in later in this month.

p.s. can I use the photo from the pretty bird swap in my swap home page?

Hello Joleen, this is Jennifer from the Pretty Bird Swap. I am so glad you liked it! I am also glad you found the soaps in the box, was a little worried about that. I bought the journal from a local gift shop here in Savannah, Georgia. The journal should say who made it and maybe the person that likes it can buy one from the company?

I do have a blog.journal, but it's on livejournal and friends only. If you have an LJ let me know and I can add you.
it's star0074.
