Wowee. I was talking to a lady in church about the business I'm trying to start on line the Sunday before last, and she ------- Hi Stacey, I hope you are doing well. I spoke to you Sunday, in church, about making bookmarks for our Grandchildren. I would like to ask if I could buy 3 bookmarks with their names on it with some sort of kid friendly decor. J is 11 years old. J 9 years old. B is 7 years old. Is that possible and do you have time (I am in no hurry)? I can pay you upfront, or when you have them done, whatever you would like. Thank you. ------- I shot her back an email asking if the children had any favorite colors, activities, etc, so that I could put something they liked on the bookmarks, and she shot me back a second or two later telling me favorite colors and what the children liked. Woo! My first commission! :D Kind of exciting... -Eeeeeee! *Ahem* so, anyway, that's another project I'll be working on, soon. Oh, boy oh boy oh boy...

Thank you. @ScribbledAdNauseum , and I certainly hope that's the case! The gal at church said there was no hurry, but I'm going to put aside the project I'm currently working on and get started on the bookmarks she ordered tonight.

Absolutely, @ScribbledAdNauseum . No, I don't believe that there is a bulletin board there--though I have been keeping my eye out for them different places.
