the hearts before, I already thought they were beautiful, but the photos don't do justice to the texture and detail, or the way the beads sparkle. And the up-cycled doodle pad is brilliant, I love the way the pages have been assembled, so that both sides are usable. Rebecca's really got her eye on this one. Regina's cover art has her mesmerized. After I gently but firmly pried it away from her fingers and stated it was mine, she smiled, took it back, and then generously offered to share it with me. It's currently sitting on my nightstand, but I'm sure the negotiations have not ended.
Thanks so much to all the wonderful ladies that participated in this exchange, and most of all thanks to Regina. I know the swap was a lot of work, and everything you sent is a treasure.
