Goodies for My Readers

While organizing my craft room, I made a basket of duplicate cards and bits and pieces of goodies such as unused clear stamps, ribbon, etc.

I have decided to send goodies to readers a couple of times of month. I will put all your names into a basket that I will keep and draw from it whenever I have a card or packet to go out. If you want your name in that basket, please email me your name and FULL snail mail address so you can go in my "lottery". My email is rubyslippers@neofast.net
