    Jill — this is sooo great! I loved reading your postings and seeing all the pictures! I’m so excited for you and your new business — how perfect is that for you! Reading your blog made me cry, partially because I’m hormonal, but mostly because I miss you guys and so wish we were closer. I think the world of you and am so happy my brother married you! We can’t wait to see you guys this summer!
    Love ya,

    Hi! I was at the crop today in Lewis Center. I loved the cards the girls created with your products. I am eager to make some myself. I have always been a big fan of anything done in craft paper. I’m glad to see someone has created a whole line using it!
