Just a FYI, I was putting the Temple Match game together and realized that I had 8 copies of the Vernal Temple. Was wondering if there were ones that got missed or not.
Thanks for all you do. I have so many of your projects in the works. I just love this site.

You are AMAZING!!! I need to get to work putting my binder together and acquiring the needed information to do so.

Thanks for putting this out so we can all be better prepared.

As for this frosting - it's my favorite! A good reason to go make a cake right this very minute! :)
