    Fun stuff! Felt beads are fun and super easy to make. I made some with my kids the other day and posted a tutorial to go from fluff to kool-aid dye. I bet even Oscar could get in on the sqishy fun!

    I went back to a antiques store on my lunch break for those buttons. Illegally parked with my motor running and locked my keys in the car! So glad you like them : )

    A funny little thing I noticed–on the card Laura sent you, ‘Hillary から’ means ‘from Hillary,’ and ‘Lauraさま’ means ‘(implied ‘to’) Laura.’
    様/さま (sama) is an honorific, like ‘san,’ that modifies the lastname of the addressee. It’s extremely polite. 🙂 So here it would be like ‘Miss’ or ‘Mrs.’ and imply that the name after it was the name of the recipient. 🙂 🙂
