  5. Wow! That bag of pencil shavings is so creative. I've never seen anything like that! And I love the book tape. I wonder how they make that stuff...

  6. That is all really neat things.Thanks for sharing. I've been looking on Ety recently for washi tape and have found some really pretty ones. I hope to be able to buy a few soon. :) I only have 3 rolls of washi tape. But I'm very thankful for them. :) A few days ago I tried out making envelopes and am really happy how they turned out. I'll have to use one for your next letter. :)
    Hope you're having a great day and your job is off to a good start.
