  1. 'When I was in sixth grade, I had a penpal from Japan. She was an artist and knew how to copy well, so she sent me many artistic paintings. I kept all her stuff for years, but in the process of moving around so much, some were lost. I felt so bad about it. I still have her picture. She told me she was tall in Japan, being all of 5ft.3 inches tall. :-)

  2. Hello Jan

    Thank you for your message. It does seem a shame that you have lost your penpal's artistic drawings. The art works from Japan, the design, art of flower arranging and gift wrapping are quite magnificent. I would like to learn some of these skills myself. Japan is a fascinating place to visit. Best wishes
