    Monica, depending on what sort of hobbies, likes... your pal has it may help on getting ideas of what sort of things to send.

    Each time you go to the store, try to make it into a game of finding things that are flat, and light in weight that you can just include in.

    Ex. if your pal likes to garden, you could send them seeds. If they like to try new foods, then maybe you could send them a spice packet. Or you could send something according to the holiday or season that your card is being mailed. Ex. For Christmas, you could send an ornament..... items do not need to be expensive, just a couple of dollars or less. But I do ask that all items be new/sealed.... it's just another fun thing to receive along with the card.

    Hope that helps you, and everyone else on here who needs ideas.

    For trips yes ;) but since she has been unemployed (other than little nothing jobs here and there) for 3 1/2 years and has no money, no you don't ;)

    I don't remember, but I think they are coated with something to protect them. I will go see if I can find DD's. She might have the info sheet still.

    Received a lovely card and luggage tag today from Monica leith78!! Thank you, it's just perfect!

    To answer your question, it wasn't easy choosing the cruise! There were so many choices :) Since I work a teacher's schedule, that narrowed our time frame down to summer, and since it will be our first we decided to go shorter rather than longer. And I wanted to go to the Bahamian region anyway, but it was a process! I'll be going with just my mom! It should be lots of fun!!

    Thanks Jamie for the nice cards, all the different stickers, the magnetic "C" and the little work search puzzle book (just the right size for my purse). :)

    The send by date is slowly approaching. Please have all cards/twists out by 9/4, and post when you have sent them.

    Also don't forget to post of any arrivals as you receive them.

    Glad to hear of another arrival!

    So, after hearing input of shall we continue with the twist, or not for the next round....we WILL continue on with the twist.

    Next question for everyone, and I will base this upon the input I hear from all of you. Shall we do another round before our Halloween round? Or wait?
