Comment: Collette: What a wonderful surprise was in my mailbox when your stacked mini journal arrived. Wow! It is just amazing and I'm sorry that you had such a struggle with it. Because the end result is just great. The folio itself is such a fun combination of papers and patterns that all work together. And I don't know how you managed to fit so many fun goodies inside but each little page and pocket had more and more fun stuff to discover! And such variety! Even the swatches of lace - so pretty. And thank you for the roll of washi tape as well. I do hope that you are feeling better by now as it sounds like you have been having a hard time lately. I do know what you mean about some of the You Tube videos as well - I often have to rewind and repeat over and over to get the gist of what is being demonstrated. I think some You Tubers are better at demonstrating and teaching than others. So once again, many many thanks for this delightful little mini-journal and all it's treasures!
Comment: Such a lovely postcard! I really like it, thanks so much.

Comment: thank you for the fun card and goodies!
Response: Oh, goosey, I am so sorry!! I meant to send you a note to let you know I could not reach the paper I was going to send a sample of & I think I forgot. I am going to have my hubby try to pull it down from the top of the closet when he gets a chance. It may be more of a challenge than I am aware of!! I still intend to send you a piece of it.

Gwillisinc rated for HMPC: Put a Cat on it Postcard on Oct 13, 2022
Comment: Collette, Even though I prefer dogs over cats, I think this is the best HM Postcard I've ever received. But it is black & white like my Boston so it makes it more adorable
Response: Oh, thank you so much. I am a huge animal lover & I also do tend to prefer dogs over cats but it is all good to me=)
Comment: i'm sorry you wont get to see your nieces this Halloween. maybe you guys can stream Hocus Pocus together and spend time virtually :3
Response: Not sure what we are going to do; I want to send them a Halloween package a piece in the mail but not sure what to send!!
Comment: Hey Collette! This is SO cute! I really love it. Where is that paper from? The chicken paper? I hope you are feeling better.
Response: Hi! The paper is actually part of the chicken image. If you know how to use "Paint" I think you can take the chicken image off & just have the paper.
sunshinesuperman rated for Yes! It's BOO BOX! on Oct 9, 2022
Comment: Thank you for an amazing Boo Box. I must say that this is probably one of my top 2 boxes since being here over 14 years. I love so many things found inside the box which is awesome all by itself. I adore the wax pumpkin stamp which I will use today. I love the lights, the gloves, the stickers, and all the spooktacular items. What a great swap!!! Hugs, Mona
Response: Mona, You are so welcome! It clicked on me (of course, after I sent the box) that I didn't send any wax for that stamper!! Many apologies about that!! Hope your Halloween is super!!
