    I have gotten some hilarious messages when people have translated texts into Finnish. I really really really appreciate your try to do it but I'm also sorry to say that it doesn't work very well. The structure of Finnish and English is so different and translators do mess a lot. And I have no idea how the words are selected but somehow they use very rare words we hardly use anymore in normal life.

    If you want to chech your translations beforehand, just let me know. I can do it. Anyway, I do appreciate it what ever you write . And my mom will do it too. At least she will have so laugh in her life if you write something totally weird .

    Do you have a phrase that is the equivalent of home sweet home, or home is where the heart is?

    Home sweet home = Oma koti kullan kallis. Directly translated "own home is worth of gold".
    Home is where the heart is = Missä koti, siellä sydän.

    They are widely used also in Finnish.

    Mom got the first card today! And she was so exited! She called to me and told that there is one wonderful Paulette who makes very pretty cards . Thank you, Hazartist1, you made her day.

    And she doesn't know that there are more coming .

    I'm so glad she liked it! Did you tell her about my message I tried to write in Finnish? That would have made her smile
    Art On!

    Thank you everyone! And for those who were worried about sending a card late, no no no, there are no deadlines. And it's even better if she receives a card per week than many cards at the same day.
