Hey there, Polka Dot!

This is a hidden page.  The only people who have access to this url are you and me.  I also recommend viewing this on a computer if you can.  Just fyi.

 

So I really f*cking love finding reasons to shower people with affection.  Like in high school, I'd always bake something yummy to hand out in my classes (and candy in case someone had allergies) whenever there was a special occasion.  Sorry, I'm getting off-topic.  Anyway, I know Feb 14th was well over a month ago.  But guess what?  I do not  care.  You're getting a card, bb!  A Quarentine, if you will...

 

I also decided to document the process of making it.  Creating things is such a big part of who I am, and I would love nothing more than to share this part of me with you - even as you are so far away.  Enjoy~

Keep Scrolling!  --->

Okay, now I need you to imagine a box.

 

A really nicely wrapped box.

 

With sparkly wrapping paper and a bow.

 

Alright, now tear that b!tch open!

 

Here's what you find inside the box:

 

Also apologies for mixing up the words a bunch.  When you read to maintain eye contact, you look at the word's shape first, letters second.  So words like Mr. and Ms. are basically the same thing when you read like this.

 

 

 

p.s. I love you.
