Dear Catherine:
Hope that this makes it to the blog and I'm not in a fog:-)
Great job on the website, and I will share (again) how when looking at the Easter Card I initially thought the eggs were pistachio shells, and thought what a clever idea that was! And I'm going to try it on my own...
all the best...

Hello, I'm from Russia and I'm a new in "real" scrapbooking (I made a digital ones for a pretty long time and now would like to get some new experience so began to scrap in “reality”).

Here in Russia it's pretty hard to find scrapbooking suppliers so I was very surprised to find out a magic thing called “blog candy”.
I believe in miracles as strong as my little daughter :) so I believe I’ll win a candy one perfect day.
Many thanks to the people like you who make a little wonder by their own crafty hands.

I love vintage!
Good luck to you in all of your undertakings!

My post here: http://winged-art.blogspot.com/2009/02/vintage-candy.html
