FEEDBACK: Given when a package is received (verified through PM or DC#) I will be keeping track of what has been received by gallery pictures (This is why it is important for you to take pictures of your items, just in case your partner does not) *Please PM if there is difficulty with pictures.*

Oh darn! If you and your partner agree to craft a larger pillow, that's certainly okay with me. I just want to have a standard so those that sign up know what general size to expect.
