I also want to say "Thank you!" to the people I heard from at the holidays: babycakesin, castalie, catheights, desert_rifka, jenni_snake, kleio_caissa, luvmax1, maddiec24, maggie33, pride_of_erin, rosybug, and tobyfan. The cards were a delight, and I have a colleague here at work who's going to be thrilled when I give her the foreign stamps that came with a few of them. :-)
Extra thanks to Jen, Robin, and Tavi (who all know why). (Robin, the snowflake arrived in perfect condition, and it's simply beautiful; it's going to live here in my office at least until the spring.)
Thanks also (in advance) to foudebassan, whose contribution to my holiday cheer appears to be taking the long, slow, scenic route. I'll let you know when it finally arrives!
If there's anyone else I should have thanked but haven't, please let me know. It's always possible Fou's card found a traveling companion or two along the way....
