Thank you so much Naush!
I just want to thank you for all the marvelous ideas and FREE GRAPHICS you offer!! What a generous gift to those of us who can appreciate the time it takes for you to “clean up” the images and often provide them in several color choices……. And you even reverse them for transfers!!!!!!!! MANY THANKS!!!! I LOVE YOUR COLLECTION!!

Thank you so much Diane!! I really appreciate your kind words!!
If you would get rid of these slow pages I am sure people would be willing to buy a subscription if it is reasonably priced. I know I would.
Frist I love your website and I also hate it. I love what you have to offer and spend a lot of time on your site and telling others about it. I hate all the stuff on the sides and the top. takes too long to load and nothing works until it is all loaded. I have a new computer and the highest internet so it isn’t just my computer. If I could figure out how to set it up so I don’t get all of that I would – needless to say I never click on any of it. so from the stand point of advertisement it is a waste for me, but hopefully for others they click on it. Now that I have ranted about what I hate. I do have a request. When you offer multiple things like the 14 handmade gifts could you please put small thumbnails on page one. Out of frustration I go through a couple of pages and just say forget it. Not worth my time. thanks for listening..

The advertisements and sponsors pay for the antique paper pieces that I buy to share here, without them I couldn’t afford to run this blog. I spend a lot of money on very rare prints, books etc and then a lot of time preparing them to share. I’m sorry it’s loading slow for you, you might try out a different browser and see if that helps. I’m not sure about the thumbnails, I’ll see if there is a plug in or something for that.
The link to view the Carte zippered pouch isn’t correct. It keeps going to the butterfly vase. I’d love to see how to do the zippered pouch if that is possible. Thanks for all your wonderful ideas and free images.

Thanks for letting me know Tracy! I just fixed it!
