I got an email about the snowflake mats. She said she loved them but wanted to tuck photos under the spikey parts. I will see if I can remember how I did these and recreate them as png borders. I don't think I'll limit myself to snowflakes, I may add butterflies, stars, hearts and flowers - maybe more.
I upgraded my Gimp program to 2.4 and everything doesn't seem to be working correctly with this build so I may have to do it on my laptop that has 2.2 on it (but is slower). Thinking of uninstalling it and going back to 2.2 on the desktop (the zoom machine). I'm doing things for me today. I will explore this tomorrow (Saturday).
