Wow, there are tons I want to comment on, but no time right now. This is a beautiful gallery; I'm so excited every time a new post is made! Somebody said recently that this swap has meant a lot more to her than she expected, and I completely agree. It's been that way for me too. Thank you so much to the people who have commented on my cards; it means so much to me, and one or two of your comments have been so...perfect
...that I'm seriously considering PMing you to talk about it.
So, anyway, I got five more cards today!--and here they are:
'I know all the words. AND the dance moves.'
I love this secret! I haven't seen High School Musical
, so I know neither the words nor the dance moves, but I DO know the words and dance moves to other things. Awesome secret!
Above and below, it says: 'My mother wanted me to get the HPV vaccine. She doesn't know I already have Human papillomavirus (HPV)
In the middle, there's a Gardasil logo with 'TOO LATE' written above it.
Thank you for sharing this, secret Craftster. I don't know what HPV type you have, but I hope you have great health now and in the future.
'I often think people are judging me when I eat, thinking "She shouldn't be eating THAT!" '
I think this too sometimes, actually. I feel judged a lot in public, now that I think about it.
'i don't know WHY my secrets bother me so much...
when they're so small and insignificant.'
This is a small card, a little over 3" by 4.25". I love the smallness and the delicacy and the simplicity of it. I don't think that a problem IS insignificant if it sincerely bothers you, though; just because your secret might not be a big deal to someone else doesn't invalidate it for you. And sometimes 'small' problems are the hardest to deal with.
At the top are cuttings from a receipt, and at the bottom is a cutting either from the receipt or a letter: 'Please accept our sincere condolences on the loss of your friend and companion. All our cremations are done individually.'
The text says: 'I don't care if people think it's weird. Cremating my pet was one of the most healing things I've ever done.'
The loss of a pet is horrible. My heart goes out to you; I know how hard the death of a pet can be. If cremating your pet helped you, that's all that matters, regardless of how other people feel about it. Thank you for sending me this secret.
