    Katheen,
    Yes it is correct. UPPER case and lower case are different symbols.
    There would be an "symbol map" to guide a person through it.

    I have started on some handmade goodies for my Secret Santa and will probably 'fluff' it out with something bought. Let's go!!!!
    Louise - I collect mugs from the U.S. and around the world . Also collect homemade pincushions, and sewing/quilting themed fabrics.

    Count me in. This sounds exciting!!!!! And what say if you make a little something homemade to put in the box - that doesn't count off your $20 spending allowance does it? I would hope not ;-)
    The trouble with Trouble is.....It usually starts out like fun!!

    I think that would be fun. I know some computers have fonts with images. I'm in

    would be included, along with UNcoded letter if someone didn't want
    to have "fun" decoding the letter.

    I use to do this all the time (on another quilting board) and MOST of
    the time everyone had fun and enjoyed the extra surprise of the letter
    being in crazy themed wingdings fonts.

    Here is an example of what I am talking about in case anyone might
    be confused.

    That's a hard one to figure out. There are a few ladies that just handmake items for their person and count it all towards the $20.
    The $20 is pretty much a cut-off because now with money tight with the economy, it's hard for some to squeak out that amount.
    I don't judge if people put more in the box than the $20, some people are just a bit more enthusiastic with giving, while others adhere to the $20 because that's mainly all they can afford.
    Am I going to whip people with wet noodles if they send more? Nope. Nothing I can do if someone wants to be generous. It's just the way people are.
    So, if you want to count a home made item towards the amount, that's ok, if not, that's ok too.
