It would probably be easier to send the "donor" a note if every mug had
an email address attached to it... some of us are new to clayart when we
participate in our first mug exchange, we don't associate names with
email addresses... some of the participants are lurkers... Please, I would
love to email the people whose mugs I've received, let them know how
they've adjusted to their new homes, tell them funny stories about their
new lives, but it's not always easy to do so...
I've exchanged a few lovely email messages with recipients of my cups
from the past couple of years... :) nice to know that they are enjoyed...
trying to type with the kitten batting at my fingers from his bag
slung around my shoulders... Why Alpheus decided that my email
time was the perfect snuggle time, I may never know, fortunately,
he seems to enjoy the bag and this way I can hold him and type
at the same time... as long as I remember to reach up periodically
and scratch his ears...

Thank you Louise for that suggestion.... I think many of us have had this
feeling and question... just a matter of courtesy and personal etiquette to
let people know you appreciate their gift and work.... Paul
