  11. Thanks for all these useful tips, Debby. I must say, though, that I’m not sure about using the emoji’s. I was a bit confused about copyright. Seems the only ones that can be used (without checking elsewhere) are the ones in their encyclopedia. But, as I say, I found it a bit confusing. Thanks for sharing what you’ve found out. <3

    1. Actually Norah, there’s no copyright issues. If you were to click on one of the emojis, you are offered to look at more through Google, Microsoft, etc. right on the page, these are free to use. 🙂

        1. Welcome Norah. 🙂
