Comment: Michelle, thanks so much for the book pages, the card (Mary Englelbreit is a favorite of mine) and your delightful journal, a great view into your November. I really appreciated your reading my profile - thanks for including the note about your mother's organ donation.
Response: Thank you for participating in that swap too! Merry Christmas!
Comment: love the bridge its almost looks like one from up here that river is the size of the connecticut!!! and the mountains are just like new hampshire and vermont!!!! thats how the 2 states ar divided just like that!!!!
Comment: thanks so much for the extra NYC ephemera. The magnolia bakery is from SATC right? thanks again.
Response: Yes! The Magnolia Bakery was mentioned on SATC several times. They do have delicious cupcakes, but so does Billy's! Glad you liked it! :O) Hope you make it to NYC some day. It's a fascinating place to visit!
Comment: Thank you for the gorgeous journal... I will have to find something to fill the rest of the pages ! Thank you for sharing a little of your life with me, it was funny, sad and interesting.. Thank you.. :)
Response: Glad you liked it! I thought this swap was SO FUN!
Comment: Omigosh! I can't believe I forgot to rate you. I'm so sorry for the delay! Thank you so much for everything you sent! I love the postcards, the vintage papers and all of the old advertisements and ephemera. In fact, I've already used most of it in a series I'm doing! :)
Response: Terrific! I'm glad I sent something that inspired you!
Comment: Thanks for the smurfy ATC! I used to watch the Smurfs on Sat. mornings while eating my honey nut cheerios. It's funny how all these 80's cartoons keep coming on TV. My kids are watching Jem as I am writing this :)
Comment: I LOVE THE NEGATIVE STRIPS!!!! That was the best idea anyone has ever thought of to send me as an extra! I don't have any old cameras in my house so I can't get my own negatives! I'm so excited to use it on an ATC!! Thank you soooo much! And I love the ATC too! thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you!!!
Comment: I liked that you hand drew the tree and leaves, but was REALLY disappointed that you chose to use an owl STICKER. To be honest I was a bit baffled as to why, but oh well. I didn't want to ruin your perfect 5's but ask you to think twice about using a simple sticker next time. Your tree was nice enough that I am sure you could have drawn an owl as well.
Response: Oh no! I do/can draw owls! :O) Strange as it may sound my 10 year old suggested I use the sticker, and I thought it was a fun idea to do multi-media. I used a digital background I created, the sticker, and fine markers. I'm sorry you didn't care for it. Thanks for the 5 though.
Comment: I love the ATC so much!!!! :o) It is cute, charming and you actually draw it! I admire anyone who can manouver a pen like that! ;o) But hun, I can not believe you actually sent me jell-o!!!!! Do you have any idea how thrilled I was to see those packs?!?!? ;o) Thank you SOOOOOOOO much!!!!! :o) :o) :o)
Comment: All I can say is WOW! You did a terrific jobs in finding stuff to go with my likes. I just love everything. The plaque is on the front door, the candy is open and being enjoyed, can't wait to try the recipe (it was so thoughtful to think of my hubby),and the coin purse is in my purse (besides lighthouses - I also love Thomas Kinkaid and that wasn't on my profile. I loved the extra - the polka dot tote. Again, thanks so much for your thoughtfulness. Sue
Response: So glad you liked all of it! I enjoyed putting it together for you!

Response: SO GLAD you liked them! Made me nervous sending to a pro like yourself! :O)
Comment: Wow! Best swap ever! Definitely worth the wait! Thanks so much for such a personal swap. I'd give you many hearts if I could. When I was a newspaper editor, I actually got to interview Davy over the phone â€” it was really cool. He never stops talking! Thanks!!
Response: I KNEW you'd like it, and I am SO glad that I found it for you! :O) It deserves to be cherished, not sitting on the shelf in an antique shop! Mr. Jones has a horse farm very near my house....about 1 1/2 hours from me!

Comment: Wow! I wish I could give you a plus 5 and a gazillion hearts! You put alot of thought into what you sent to me and I am very honored and appreciative of it ALL! You have sent me the most wonderful stuff EVER! I have yet to experience a swapper as good as you. The ones before you have sent me junk and I was beginning to loose hope on swapping thinking that no one else would give as much or put as much thought and effort into their swaps as I do. But, in the face of your's, I now feel that my swaps are so insignificant! You are amazing! I will be sending you a mroe detailed thank you via PM.
Response: Thank YOU for your kind words. I am sorry that you have not encountered a swapper like me before. I like to under-promise and over-deliver. I do that with my photography biz too! Happy to have given you some cheer in the form of a good swap! Pass it on!
