Comment: Thanks Pooky for my bright green & purple bag with the cat on it, yes it would have been great for the kitty to be darker, but it will work the same! Ozzie has already stolen the toy, he must like it! I can always use fabric and cat stickers. Great job.

Merry Christmas from the Crafting Queens group!

Oh, awesome! I thought my wish for bones and bits was so weird no one would grant it but these are great! The pupa is really cool too. I can completely use these in my show--Thank you so much! If you'd like to do a private swap for more for perhaps some kawaii goodies I would be completely up for it. Thanks again!

Thanks for the pc from my October Wishlist! Hope your studies are going well. Way back, I used to date an entomologist who did his MS at Purdue:) He's a prof at Wash State U now (yes, am old:)

Thanks so much for the Oct. wish on the Wishlist group. The postcard is one of my favorite paintings.

!! You're so awesome for angeling the mix cd swap for me! And not only that but you included extra mix-cd's in some of my other favorite themes! =D .. I love the music you put on it and had never heard of Nerf Herder before but they they are now one of my new favorite bands! (i ♥ "Mr. Spock". I've listened to it at least 10 times by now) - In other words, you rock! thanks! :)
