Iris from Charlotte

First of all I have to answer Ira, I have never heard of such a thing. But all animals are different. We had a dog that would remove the pickles from her hamburger and the black olives from her pizza. I don't know how she could eat a piece of pizza and leave the black olives, I don't even know how she could tell what the black olives were. Now, we are talking real farm dog here. She would kill a chicken from the neighbors and hide it and bring it out now and then to chew on! And she wouldn't eat pickles or black olives. I am sorry if I grossed anyone out. Good dog, though!

O.K. Iris from Charlotte. I tried the stationery thing. I went to Google Images, found a piece of stationery, right click, save image. Opened the folder that I saved it in, right click on the picture, and chose "open with", chose paint. Made sure everything was on one page by opening file and choosing "page layout". Now I clicked on the text button, double clicked where I wanted the box. I chose a font and size, larger than normal. I typed my letter. Next, I clicked on image and reduced the size of the letter by choosing resize/reskew. I would check print preview to see the size and printed a couple out to check. I was happy with what I got. I couldn't read the letter, ofcourse, but you could see the writing.
Charlotte is trying to make some pretty stationery for a French country house she is decorating. If anyone has any more ideas, correct anything I left out or where she can go to get printies for this please let her know in the comments for me.



  1. Thank you so much Kris for all your help. I will check back tomorrow and see if anyone has any further ideas. I'm new to minis so I thought I should start out with small accessories and get my feet wet before attempting larger pieces of =) Thanks to all!

    Iris =)

  2. Yes, they are strange dogs - they eat everything they can get their teeth on, the only thing they won't touch is canned mushrooms so there must be something seriously wrong with them :D
