Bonjour Marjorie! The people taking their time at the table were actually Americans, just wanted to clear that up :) I had really great experiences with the Parisiens, no horror stories that I know some other have.

In friendship foklore, the story goes that back in Jr. High we all thought my best friend Heather was the coolest because she could rock the denim overalls. She was trendy and fashion forward. That might have been 15+ years... Continue reading

The Bonjour kit is now in the shop and will ship next week. I adore the stamp set in this kit especially. They are limited edition so when they're gone, they're gone. Merci beaucoup! Continue reading
