Comment: I love doing Magpie journals, too...your randomness was great and thanks for the tote bag!! Did you know there is a new group for Magpie journals? I joined it as I think I'd rather swap journals than about anything else.
Response: Thank you for the 5<3.
Yes i also joined the group for journals ;)
Comment: Thank you for the great magpie journal. I've enjoyed my first look thru it and will sit down with it again for a more relaxed look. Even some recipes! Thanks so much. I also appreciate the Day of the Dead bag you sent.
Comment: I love that you wrote on the back of a coloring page! So fun! I enjoyed reading your fill-ins! 80's music has been making me feel old lately as well! Maybe not the music, more the fact that some of my co-workers have no idea what song I'm singing when I belt one out. They are very young! LOL! Thank you for the extra coloring page and the awesome swap!
Comment: Hi Yvonne! Please excuse the late rating . . . I was sick for nearly a month with bronchitis. I LOVED your journal entry! I've gotten the journals with your entries before and you're so creative and you think outside the box with your style. Hope I get more journals with your entries and thanks so much.
Response: Hope you feel better.
Thanks for the heart

Comment: Thank you for the beautifully-decorated envelope with Wonder Woman postage and adorable, thoughtfully chosen washi samples, Yvonne :) I especially love the Shinzi Katoh Little Red Riding Hood design :D Hope you are having a good Monday! â™¥

Response: I had to mail it. It was just too cool I had to share it.
Comment: Thanks for the upcycled postcard! It's always nice when those mystery beverages work out. I'm always looking for a single container, but they don't all come that way! BTW, I drove by Universal City this weekend--Universal City, California!
Comment: I am bummed that the Ghostbusters movie didn't do better than it did in theaters. I thought that it was a lot of fun. Twinkies must be trying to push for market share - they made your white fudge marshmallow version, and I saw two different flavors of "deep fried Twinkies" at the store this week. Didn't try any of them, but now I'm intrigued!
Comment: Hi Yvonne! Thanks for the fun chunk! I did get artsy this week and made a 9 pocket letter using postage stamps - I am so excited to say my partner really enjoyed it! I had not crafted in for a bit, so... LOL! Also got markers and coloring pcs in the mail today - now to use them! LOL! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: Thank you for the nice yellow/gold reindeer card. Yes, I am looking forward to the "er" months as well. It has been hot, humid, and dry in Toronto. Temps weren't as high as where you are, but it reached 95 a few days ago. It has rained with storms and cooler in the 80s now. Keep cool and think "ER" thoughts!
Comment: I received part 1 of the envelope ðŸ˜!!! I loved the Christmasy items, postcards, ATC sleeves and envelope decoration ðŸ˜„ðŸ’•â¤ï¸... Can't wait for part two ðŸ¤— :)) Update: I cannot describe how happy I was to open the second package :))) thank you for all the awesome pocket letter sleeves you included ðŸ’•ðŸ’ŒðŸ˜‡ðŸ˜â¤ï¸â¤ï¸ðŸ¤—ðŸ¤—ðŸ¤—
Comment: I picked up my mail today and a wonderful journal was waiting for me to read. I really loved how you shared your March with me! As for whether or not you should tell your friend about her...um...mothball problem? I would. She might be hurt initially but if you're really good friends, she'll appreciate it and thank you in the long run. Good luck with that! xoxo
Response: Thanks for the heart rating. And mothball advice.

Edit: you sent me two!!! How sweet, thank you! I love the pictures in the collage, and the foreign papers, and the butterfly stamp... Thank you thank you!!
Comment: Thank you so much for the lists. Sorry for the late rating--March really got away from me. I could tell from my initial quick perusal that you put a lot of work into making the lists and assembling them together, so I wanted to give them the time they deserved in the reading of them. Love the variety of items you wrote them on and especially the clear envelope in which they were mailed! Thanks again!!
Comment: Thank you so much for the great washi tape samples! And a special thank you for sending 30 different tapes... That was very generous of you! I look forward to using them all in my mixed media endeavours. Thanks again!
Comment: Yvonne.... Absolutely beautiful!! Thank you so much for the time and effort you put into making it special! I am also becoming addicted to Washi tape!! I'm going to check out the website you mentioned and the paper towel holders sound like a great solution to storing the rolls!! Many hearts to you.... :-)

I adore the glittered birds with the card hats. I'm happy you liked everything. Thank you so much; it really brightened my day. (ï½¡â—•â€¿â€¿â—•ï½¡)
Comment: I received an ADORABLE, tiny little notebook that had been filled with an answer on each page, and had decorations and drawings that depicted the answers. It was really cute and creative.
Additionally, she sent a second mini notebook that was blank for me to use. I thought that was a nice touch.
Thank you so much! My husband and I read each of your answers and shared the pics with our son. We all thoroughly enjoyed this, and it really made our day. :)
Comment: Wow, what an awesome swap! Thank you so much because I love it all. You must have ESP because you included things I love (like 7gypsies) that I don't even have listed on my profile! I can't wait to start using my new stuff! Woohoo!!
Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful swap!!! I absolutely love the way you did it! Very unique and beautiful!!! I need to learn how to do this! So thank you again for the little book and introducing me to a new way to craft!! <3 :D
Comment: Thanks so much for reminding me to rate! Yes! I got your zine yesterday actually. It was so cute. I learned some new interesting things about you. I like the way tat you wrote it.... great format and style. Thanks for sharing the tidbits of your life.
Comment: Hi Yvonne, Thanks so much for the gorgeous zines! They are so colorful and bright! They were wonderful to get on this dreary day. You are such an angel to take care of feral kitties! We have always gotten our kitties from the pound or given to us. When we were living in WI, people would drop their kitties off on the road by my house, and I lived far out in the woods. We would always take them in and either keep them ourselves or find forever homes for them. I swear they know who loves them! Thanks again, you deserve 10,000 hearts. Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Comment: What a super cool couple of zines. Your fill in the blank zine was really neat and it really made me think. I was thinking a lot about your page that said to find a stranger and agree to meet them 10 years from now! That was funny.... I don't know if I would dare. I also liked the zine with all your answers. I love that you always wear panties and a t-shirt!!! Awesome!!! I bet your husband loves that!!!!
Comment: Holy crap that was awesome! I love your humor. I laughed out loud when I saw the drawing of the fat kid! Wonderful job, great story! Thanks for the Kirk trading card you rock! Wish I could give you more hearts for such a cool a creative swap. You even had an article on the "Birds" Best wishes!! Hang on to those water bottles!
Comment: thank you...your notes had me laughing...did hide a diary when I was young...the siblings found it anyway, and picked the lock! dated the handsome lad that lived across the street, it all went well for a long time, then he stalked me and yup he knew where I lived all right heh heh.
Comment: I really enjoyed the zines you sent, and I can't wait to plant my very own lemon tree! I got especially excited when I saw the Hello Kitty-shaped cards and the Chococat sticky note/flags! Thanks a TON! I am totally open to doing a private zine swap in the future.
Comment: I am so glad you chose Thriftstore day. I was really hoping someone would!!! I love that you are so on top of this swap!!! The other zines are nice too. Thanks for the extras. I totally plan to make the rosemary butter! I love your cats names too!!! My personal favorite names are Sir Winston, Gravy and Basil.

Response: thankyou.... my 1st zine ever was from you ages ago :) thanks buddy
Comment: I am so sorry this rating is late! I got side tracked while taking pictures of it and glowing to my hubby about it that it forgot to actually rate it on here :( It's an awesome mini-zine! Hubby and I both enjoyed the drawings and the hand coloring! I always love that personal touch on a mini-zine when possible :) Thank you for the message asking about it because I would have archived it thinking I had rated you.... (hanging head in shame).
Comment: being generous these were suppose to be full pages and even with pictures was room for lots more info skipping 3 lines at a time is not a full page and no where did it say pictures could take up any room and somedays more pictures than words
Comment: Hello Yvonne! Hope you're having a good week. I just got your beautiful art in the post. Thanks a million for your wonderful mail art and all the extra goodies included in your envelope. Great stuff! Too bad I can only give you a five and a heart. Take care.
Comment: Yvonne, thanks so much for the Korean faux postage stamps!!!! They are so so so cute!!!! I have been wanting some of those forever, but didn't want to have to break down and buy them for myself. I love them and there are so many in the package!!! You are such a sweetheart!!! I will be mailing you an envelope with some of the many zines of mine that you have missed out on so that you may add them to your collection :)
Comment: OMG!! Where did you find the book??? Love it and the moon, too. At first, I was a bit stumped as to what to do, but now I now... so am so eager to get it ready to go to the next person but I will be enjoying its beauty while it is here... Karen

Comment: First of all..... I love your collage style Drawing a blank zine. You are so creative... it totally makes my day!!! I also absolutely loved the instructions on planting a lemon tree.

I wish I could get me some! Do you remember where you got it?

I have not yet mastered the using torn paper on 1/2 of the page--I love that. And the dimensional pot is just lovely. Thank you for making my mail day with your beautiful creations. p.s. thanks again for the goodies!!
Comment: Hi Yvonne!
I A D O R E your seed packet mail art! I knew EXACTLY when I pulled it out of the box which swap it fulfilled! Your additition of floral stamps and the flower shaped address label made it complete. My absolute favorite packet is the pea packet! So cute. Thanks, too, for the wonderful goodies inside! That paper with the pattern pieces is NEAT!

Thanks again for everything.
Comment: Cute sparkly butterfly wings atc! Thank you! But why did it cost $2.97 to send??? I got a similar envelope the same day that was only 86 cents. Did you make the mail people mad or something? Hope I've been putting enough on my envies!!

Comment: Thank you so very much for your atc Janice. I was out of town for a week and had no time to rate. It was difficult as I was in both mega-swaps and the winter swap. I love how you did your atc. how in the world did you stiffen the pointsettia?
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful journal. I haven't had a chance to go through it, just skimmed through it. But now that I'm finished with my journal I can get a cup of tea and my blanket and enjoy it. Hope you have a wonderful holiday season.
Comment: Thank you for a really cool ATC! I like all the elements you put together-it turned out very nice. I can understand why it was so difficult to part with and why you had to make one for yourself : )
Comment: Thank you for this beautiful PC and your touching story. Last Thanksgiving we lost our Carmel kitty to pnemonia, after rescuing her from a shelter. We had her for almost 11 years. I cried for a week straight. She had gotten me through 4 middle east deployments of my son and husband and was just the best and smartest kitty!!! She is buried above our house on the Island. Hugs from Alaska, Sherry

Comment: Thank you for your lovely map postcard of Texas. I have been to several of those places in March, this year when staying with my cousin in Houston. We had a month long amtrak pass and in Texas I went from Longview to Houston and then Houston to El Paso and on to LA. The horns on the bighorn cattle are huge, we saw them close up at Johnson Space Centre, along with NASA stuff too.

Comment: Thank you so much for such a lovely little card! I love the fans, although they really put me in mind of seashells. I think that's why I love it so much! The pearls are also a special touch! Thank you so much! Love, Chels
