Happy Mail & Book Review

Last week I received some wonderful mail. This card with a wonderful note inside and stamp set. Before convention I was asked to create a project to be auctioned off for Operation Smile. The stamp set if from Jeanette Lynton and it can't be purchased. What an honor to get one~
I just recently finished this book-I am sure many of you have already read it, as it has been around for awhile. My goal was to finish it before the movie came out, and I finished it last weekend, just in time because the movie comes out in a few weeks.
I really enjoyed the book-it took me awhile to get into it, but once I did I couldn't put it down. I think my favorite pat was the chapters in Indonesia-I love the relaxed laid back life. I also would love to just be able to eat and eat in Italy, but of course I just think about pasta and I gain weight. I highly recommend reading this book. I will let you know what I think of the movie in a few weeks.

Lucky you to receive that card and stamp set from Jeanette! I'm sure you'll use it wonderfully, too.

I haven't read that book, but I guess with the movie due to be released keep hearing about it. Maybe one of these days I'll have to see if my library has it. *Ü*

What a nice surprise to get in the mail! I have a set from Jeanette from Regionals. Too cool! Well deserved Aaron!

That book has been on my list for awhile. Need to get on it before I see the movie!
