I will send out three packages which will be filled with note cards, some stationery and other little bits. So either email me or let me know in the comments section. Thanks!

oh, what a fantastic list...this is how i first met your blog...i'm not sure how i found you, maybe through Ellia's blog but your list back then was absolutely inspirational...you and your list helped me start my blog (which has been on my list to do for ages!) and i totally agree with Ellia having lil' ones can be challenging to accomplish those many lists floating in my head but writing them down puts everything in context and makes it a little bit more easier to complete...i love your lists...every single one...i also have to agree with Bejeweled...i'm hoping the last 4 wishes come true for you...your life together will be a beauty and your kids will all be knockouts!!!!! xoxo jo ;)
