    Those love notes are precious! How sweet. Great share, Mel.

    I donated again to AFA this year, too. It's sad to see iATCs closing down. And I am truly hoping that doesn't happen here. This has been my favorite website for over 10 years! I think it would be much harder to host swaps on Facebook and such sites, as they aren't as carefully admin'd as this site is. I'm hoping that Carole's latest request for donations, and perhaps some iATCers renewing their memberships over here can keep gas in the AFA tank. I love this site so much!

    So, I have a request...I have a love for Ginkgo trees and their leaves. Me running into one is really rare. I'm trying to get a handful of their leaves to press and use with my wax seals. I saw one last week in Sacramento...and I'm kinda awkward in front other people. So, I went to pick up a few that fell on the ground...I got a sort of weird glance from a guy walking near by...long story short...I got 2 leaves then felt stoopid...and got in the car right away. LOL! I was with my eldest...he cracks up...says, first...you're weird for wanting the leaves...but that's normal where you're concerned...and second...who cares what the other people think...just get your leaves. Anyways...do any of you have a Ginkgo tree or lives near one...and wouldn't mind maybe sending some my way?

    Is it too late for me to sign up for this month, Mel?

    And my parents used to have a Ginkgo tree in their garden and they happen to be visiting me right now so I will check with them later when I see them. Don’t get your hopes up too much though, they sold the back part of their property over the summer and if I remember correctly the tree stood/stands where the buyer has his new driveway But I will check with them, I understand your love for Ginkgos

    Mel, you may want to a more general thread up in the Art Supplies thread? I got a gingko leave sent to me several years ago...I can't remember the players name anymore, but it came from Germany. Maybe prayer_at_night's Mom...if she's still active? Alas there are none of these trees in my neighbourhood.

    Thanks for the info! ...it seems so foolish to me to think that I can't get a few simple leaves on my own...gah...I don't really see these trees in my neighborhood...but in the city...everywhere! ...but of course in the city...so many people...and I just sorta feel stupid LOL!

    I'll start here...see what comes of it. I figured...I'd gift anyone here a few pre-made wax seals (stickers) in exchange for the leaves.

    Currently I have some Japanese Maple leaves in a dictionary. (Tree is in my backyard) But...next weekend...I was thinking of making my own flower press...looks simple enough. Here's a share Addicts!

    I'll keep a lookout for Ginkgo's for you. They are really beautiful! I was looking for a purse-size leaf press a while back. Something that could easily be carried, and then you can load it when you come across a ginkgo as you're out and about.

    You should have sent your kiddo out to pick up more leaves...isn't that part of the reason to have kids...to do things like fetching the remote control and obscure tree leaves?

    Just got word of more stuff I have to do this month irl (involves the county and taxes, ugh), so I need to withdraw for this month. But I will be back - soon I hope.

    Thanks Nan Glam...the two leaves that I could get...went in to my check book until I could get home ...the kid that was with me is too old for me to boss around...(not really, but sorta) If I asked him though...he'd do it. It just feels more appropriate to get the younger one to do it.

    Gem, no worries, but thanks for looking into it for me.

    Rose, feel free to drop in and blab with us when you can...join up you're available

    My two envies for August and September arrived on the same day. Thank you, ladies, really awesome. Tandy - your envie of the Yellowbelly Brewery - a well-known landmark in St. John's is just fabulous! Pouringdiva - I love the layered glitter look. What a treat.
