Comment: Thank you! Love your recipe. Unfortunately, I am not able to eat food with flour at the moment. But i hope i will be able to try your cupcake & upside down cake recipes one day. :) But i will definitely be trying out the Chopped Chicken Apple Salad (without pasta) this weekend!
Comment: Thank you, Theresa! You have very neat handwriting, and I could certainly identify with the quotes you sent. Some of them made me chuckle. Plus, you sent my 40, so I got a bonus, all color coordinated. â™¥
Comment: OH MY!!!! Thank you so much for the wonderful journal you sent. It is amazing! I have only read parts of it but I know I will have fun reading all of it. You put so much time and effort into this and it really shows. And then you had to add in all of the extra goodies. I can't wait to try the dot-to-dot coloring book. I just recently heard about those and now I have one! Yippee!! And the postcards are going to be fun and put to good use. Thank you so much for this wonderful package. Hundreds of hearts to you!!!
Response: glad you liked it and glad mother nature decided to behave herself long enough to get in out of storage at the post office
Comment: **sorry, I didn't push the "save button after I wrote this apparently. Thanks for following up!**
Thanks for all of the LBs, I'll get them passed along quickly. Happy 2018â¤ï¸Debbie
Comment: Sorry for the [very] late rating on this! I've been out of town for a bit and didn't get around to it right away. "The Sleeping Beauty Killer" looks like a good one - thanks for the new read! :)
Comment: Thanks fpor the labelbags! Took the swap from costums today. It was at costums because the form was not filled correctly. No box was checked and no value was given. At least I didn't have to pay for it...
Response: that's good. next time i'll remember to fill out the customs slip myself
Comment: Hello Theresa,
Thank you for the 2 poems you sent me for this swap. The Shel Silverstein poem is one of my favorite poems. The second poem I am not familiar with but I am familiar with the poet. I look forward to being a part of your swap.
Comment: Hello Theresa,
Thank you for the varied and wonderful selection of Poetry you sent me for the "Poetry Journal" swap. I have not read the poems you sent me but I look forward to doing so, reading each poem. I am going to set it up to read one poem a day starting on the day that this poem is due to be mailed (Sept. 15).Thank you also for the index or table of contents of all the poems so I can find them in the journal. Thank you for your generosity.
Comment: Ahhhh. What a wonderful collection of poems! How lovely to revisit favorites, remember forgottens, and be introduced to the unfamiliar. To Flush, My Dog is particularly sentimental now. Thank you for sharing favorites from your collection and prodding me to rummage through mine to share.
Comment: Totally fine. I went overboard and filled my entire journal too LOL. I actually had it all done since April 6th, but just got into the PO today. Thanks again for this swap. I just love filling journals. Will be keeping an eye out for more of yrs in the future.
Response: yeah, it's more like..."this looks interesting, that looks interesting, etc..." type of swap
Comment: Hello Theresa,
Thank you for the Magpie Journal you created for me. I enjoyed the items you sent and look forward to using them. I look forward to especially using your seeds in my pots outside when it gets warmer and stays warm. I also enjoyed your other items you sent and will use them as time and situations permit. I have not read everything, but what I read I enjoyed. I will take my time reading over the next few weeks. You found some interesting information to share and I liked it.
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful magpie journal! I like that you called it an interpretation. I always worry about if I'm doing it right on unique swaps. Love the f page! Still have a lot to read. :)
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful poem book! I can see that you put a lot of care and effort into your journal. My favorite one is "Casey at the Bat." And the cover is very nice too! Thank you so much!
Comment: Thank you for copying out these well known and well loved poems. If you are interested in reading more good poetry, Garrison Keeler has put together three anthologies of poetry, modern, beautiful, not difficult and great for expanding one's appreciation of contemporary poetry.
Comment: Thanks for the label bags Theresa! Will get them moving along quickly. Always appreciate that you use sticky labels, it helps making booklets for you so much easier and fun(: have a great day! ðŸ’œDebbie
Comment: Thank you so much!!! That change purse is adorable!! And I love crossword puzzles, funny you got me one. Thank you so much everything was great. And I never have enough journals. Thank you again!!
Comment: Theresa, Thank you so much for your recipe. Some of the ingredients we cannot find here in Australia, I will have to investigate alternatives. I love trying new things. Thank you for expanding my cooking file!!
Comment: Hello Theresa,
Thank you for the enjoyable Magpie Journal. I enjoyed reading all the poetry, recipes, fun facts, and journal prompts. Thank you for the cards, postcards, notecards, and bookmarks. Thank you for the directions to coasters and bookmarks. This was a fun Magpie Journal.
Comment: Thank you for such a nice assortment of tea!! They all look absolutely delicious. And thank you so much for including the chapstick. It was such a nice and thoughtful surprise! I am very glad we swapped!!
Comment: I'm so sorry I thought I'd rated you ages ago! Thank you for a wonderful book of poems! I enjoyed reading through them. Thank you for all the time and effort that went into creating your wonderful book of poems! Best wishes.
Comment: Thank you, the book seems interesting, I'm going to look for it. I can't believe you hand wrote the whole thing. My arthritis gets to be a real pain and sometimes I can barely write my name. If I have to do more than a line or two I type and print it and sign it, LOL!
Comment: Thank you for sending forward the journal. This is my first traveling journal swap series and it is so much fun to read everyone's lists. I lovedon't learning about you through your lists! Thanks!
Comment: What a fabulous journal of wonderful music. Wow, every page was great and reminded me of so many...I found myself saying, "oh yeah, I forgot about that one!" Thanks so much for the great swap.
Comment: Thank you for sending me some gorgeous coloring pages :)
The peacock one, I just love! And I really like the masks you colored. I'm sorry that I am a bit late on your rating, let's just blame it on this past week, which on my part, was pretty hectic! Thanks again!
Comment: Theresa, sorry it took so long to rate. I thought I had and when I came back to double check, I realized I hadn't. I haven' read any of David Baldacci's books, so I can't rate on it now. I do love the bookmark with the little penguins on it and also the little penguin charm on the tassel. Also thank you for the tote. Shirley
Comment: I enjoyed your notebook of A to Z lyrics! How long did it take you to complete it? My hand started hurting when I was writing mine. I hope you had fun with this swap. I felt like this was more of a physical challenge than a "swap" challenge. I hope to see you in future swaps!
Comment: Can't wait to try the Frosted Rhubarb Cookies. I just love Rhubarb. Can't wait to try al the cookie recipes.. I plan on making a new batch every week. Yum-m-m! Hope your having a wonderful day. bearnbabs
Comment: Thank you so much!!! I peeked at quite a few and I loved the quotes I read that you picked, thank you for including some extra funny ones too, and the images are really pretty as well that you printed out with the quotes, I will add them to my jar & enjoy them for a long time to come. :)
Comment: Thank you very much for the goodies in this swap. Looking forward to have some hot cocoa on this cold day. Also love the note cards and the WI postcards. I have not received any of these before and will enjoy sharing them with others.
Comment: Thank you for your swap. It was an enjoyable read! If you ever get to go to WDW and need any tips, let me know. I lived with WDW in my backyard for 22 years, and spent 16 of those years with annual passes and/or worked there. :)
Comment: Hello, Theresa, yours is the first zine and letter I've received for the swap - thanks for everything! The coloring book zine is full of detail and I like all of the images. It was fun to read about your "likes," I share a lot of your food favorites! All in all, a really nice introduction. Thanks again.
Comment: Thanks for sharing your '...last times' with me. Your answer to the mobile phone question made me LoL. You shoyld definitely try a pajama day someday...I usually have them when I'm not feeling well, but any day you just want to stay cozy works.
Comment: Your answers to the questionnaire were fun to read! I love swaps like this -- meeting new people and seeing similarities and differences. I would rather play poker with you than some celebrity LOL. And I would love to try your step-father's chili! <3
Comment: Thank you Theresa for doubling my pleasure of receiving your handmade Christmas cards! How I appreciate you made for me Christmas cards, they mean a lot to me. And I will put your cards up on display in my apt for this Christmas season. This is a fun swap & glad it starts early. Happy October!
Comment: Thank you so much Theresa! We have a lot in common! Sorry to take longer than normal to rate, I've been away on a family emergency and just got back home to your wonderful package. I really enjoyed reading all the lists! Thank you!!!!!
Comment: I think our journals styles are polar opposites. My interpretation was to collect things and put in the journal for you to use. I know you put a lot of effort into the journal you sent me. That is more writing than these old hands could manage.. I thank you for that. Happy Swapping.
Comment: Thank you so much for your huge package!! If I could give a million hearts and hugs I would!
Some of your favourites are ours too so will share with my family.
Thanks again. Above and beyond what I was expecting!(having had flakers in a few swaps)
If you want a little something in return,get in contact. So so so happy!xxx
Comment: Hi Theresa - Thank you so much for the great Jules Verne book. I haven't read this one of his so was thrilled to received this book. I'm also going to be doing a decorated mail envie swap later this month and a Jules Verne book is the theme, so I'll definately use this cover a inspiration. All the best and happy swapping, Jane x jep1068
Comment: HI Theresa, You made me smile yesterday with an envelope full of goodies! You're so generous with the pc's, stickers, notebook, and love the word search what fun and the book markers how cool.
Comment: Thank you soo much Theresa! I had soo much fun with these little FBS and LBS. They are sooo cool. I sent all the FBs and LBs I received from this swap and the labels I removed (fixed up with envies and fbs) to one of my dear friends on Monday. So they are on their happy little way. thank you soo much can't wait till the next swap! :D
Comment: Hello Theresa, I'm happy to meet you in the Friendship Book swap. Thank you for the Friendship Books you sent to me for the swap. I won't make any Friendship Books for you until I receive a message from you telling me it is OK to make one for you. Some FB swappers don't want their real address in an FB - only their email address, so I ask first before I make any new FB's for some one. Happy Spring!
Comment: Got your book page today. Photocopying the back of the book too, is so smart, that's what people usually read to choose books :) forbidden sister definitely caught my attention and will keep an eye open for it in second hand stores. Thanks for sharing!
Comment: Wow! Theresa, what can I say? You surely out did yourself in sending me warm drinks. I didn't realize that there were so many different kinds of hot chocolate drinks. They will surely come in handy because our weather just doesn't want to warm up. You certainly deserve more than one heart. Shirley
Comment: I loved the seasonal sonnets you selected. They were thought provoking and well suited to the swap's theme. I cannot say which is my favorite, but I had not read any of them before, and I fully intend to read them over every now and then. Thank you!
Comment: Thanks for the survey!
You're my second partner in this swap who mentioned other people getting on your case about weight. People trying to get others down like that is the saddest thing :( Stay strong!
Hope this finds you well, and thank you once again x
Comment: Hello Theresa, a very good choice of book for the age group it is aimed at and is well written. The piece off the back cover gives enough insight into the story to make the reader feel as though she, or he, would want to read the whole book. A very good choice for the age group.
Comment: Got my recipe journal--thanks! I saw the KFC cole slaw recipe in there; I've actually made that a few times. My first job was at KFC in the old days and I always liked their cole slaw.
Comment: I love love the pictures you picked for me for this swap! Extra points for you for picking out the one of the little puppy stumbling around. It's fun to watch them start moving around for the first time. precious.
Comment: Thank you for the cute kitties on my profile! I especially LOVE the one in the Christmas tree because we had a kitty who loved to do that! He would climb up the CENTER, however, and peek out from the branches.
Comment: I was wondering why my cat was so interested in the mail--there were treats! The cat thanks you for the treats for her, and I thank you for the treats for me. Love the licorice and the mints.
Comment: Hi Theresa,
Got the journal--thanks! I was wondering if we'd have any of the same songs. I also did "White Room," "Runaway," and "California Dreaming." Such fun--thanks again.
Comment: i don't think i can say anything... but i will ("a minute to compose myself") - so prepare for a bit longer comment :D - THIS is my swap? WOW. I don't think i can say anything else. WOW. Because the only thing in my minds is - over and beyond and a LOT of kilometers over - the cookbooks are right up my ally (i already started studying what i can prepare tomorow :D) and the puzzle book is great (i love english puzzle books, but can only get them when i travel to the UK) and the crafty things :) and the journal... oh the journal is brillinate (completly feel in love) and the drinks... i think i feel out of my chair because again WOW (what a mixture, such amazing picks!!). And the postcards and notecards and the cutest thing ever :) :) :) ... This was so much, that i'm stil overwhelmed. <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 a heart is to little to show what a fantastic package this was (wish i could give you more). THANK YOU FOR THE awesome, incredible, unbelievable, wonderful... package!
Response: i'm glad you liked the package. had fun picking out the items for you
Comment: Thanks for the recipes.It threw me off when the note inside said "I love my crock pot - April" because I wasn't supposed to receive a Crock Pot recipe from you. Took me awhile to go through my swaps to find that this was actually for the "S" Recipe swap ;)
Response: sorry about that. i was in both swaps and they were due about the same time.
Comment: Thank you for the lyrics, I can see why you couldn't pick just one song... both Silent Lucidity and Nothing Else Matters are fantastic songs. I haven't heard the third one you wrote out... to youtube!
Comment: Theresa! I used to be from Wisconsin and I did one of my internships, to be an OT, at the Winnebago Mental Health Center. I have a lot of the same pet peeves! Alot of them were taken care of when I moved up here! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Comment: Thank you so much for the yummy sounding recipes. I can't wait to try them.. Also a big THANK YOU for the conversion chart. I have been wanting one of them but I keep forgetting to look for one. Now I don't have to :)
Comment: Thanks for your letter about your cat, Rossi :) Could you tell me why did you give her this name? :) If I hear "Rossi", I always think about the motorbike racer :)
I really like your stamps as well <3
Response: i got the name from the tv show "criminal minds"
Comment: Wow! It almost seems like you went above and beyond. Thank you for the lyric swap with my first, last and swap-bot name! I think I'll make a playlist of all of the songs included and listen through. :) It should be a nice hour or so of good listening.
Comment: Thanks for the PC! OMG! I also love Corndogs and forgot to put that on my list! I think if it weren't for bacon and hotdogs/corn dogs, I'd be a vegetarian. I'm not a big meat eater but they are my main points of weakness! yum! =)
Comment: Wow! You put so much work into this journal, I am amazed! I am really enjoying reading through it little by little. I was trying to wait to open the envie at the front, but couldn't stand it! Totally wonderful items from your area--thank you! We are fellow animal lovers and I just giggle at the things you write about your pets. GREAT job on this journal. I will send you a note when I am all finished reading everything--there is so much to read!!! Love it all and thank you for making such a wonderful effort to put together a lively and fun journal to read.,
Comment: Meow Meow...Thank you for the toys & treats you sent us...we are chasing one toy all around the house!! The treats are our favorite kinds!! And our Mom says thank you for the cute notecards. Meow, Data & Geordi (=^.^=)
Comment: I was so excited to see the journal in my mail today! I'm super impressed that you handwrote the whole thing-your hand has got to be hurting, lol. Thanks for sharing some of your favorite songs with me!
Comment: Heya - thanks for your message. Your wishes are all really cool, and I like that you're not just wishing but doing things like food drives to help stop hunger. That's awesome :) Thanks once again and hope you're having a good day.
Comment: That's a beautiful postcard, I always likes driving through Wisconsin.
I haven't heard of a couple of these, but I too love all the Back to the Future movies. I even saw 2 DeLoreans today, it was awesome :)
Comment: I received your notebook of quotes and really enjoyed reading them.. I especially loved..."Dogs have owners, cats have staff".. So very true.. I would have been happy to add a heart to this swap, but the problem is. I received a notice in my mailbox that I had a package that was postage due.. So, that means I have to drive 20mins into town.. to pick up a package that was 4 cents postage due. No,, I'm not worried about pennies.. but right on my profile mention postage. Thank you for a great book of quotes.
Response: i'm sorry about the 4 cents. i thought i read the scale right. next time i'll try better
Comment: Received! I'm saving it to read later with a cuppa :D I'm no where near finished mine - I thought we were supposed to do 5 EACH day! Not 5 for each day!! DOH!! Oh well, I gues I can just go ahead and do them now !!
Comment: Thanks for the journal! It's the first journal swap I've done so it was a neat experience to have, and there were a lot of songs in it that were new to me that I can't wait to sit down and look up!
Comment: thank you for the nice swap!! I love every thing The journals will be used this week for two swaps I never seem to have enough scissors, they seem to dissappear. and the writing paper will be nice to write my oldest daughter.
Comment: Thanks Terry. I sense a theme in your recommendations lol! I like the sound of "I am David" and haven't heard of it before, so I'll definitely look it up. Some of the others, I've seen but are probably worth seeing again - we all need a laugh every now and then! Cheers Terry.
Comment: Thanks a lot for the fascinating newspaper from far far away. I really enjoyed reading it although it felt a bit voyeuristic when I came to the obituaries. The newspaper has a strange size, too. What puzzeled me most were the names of the towns around your area. Prairie-du-Sac? And Berlin? And if crossing guards are actually a cover story it seems to be wonderfully calm! ^^
Comment: Dear Marco, I would like to rate you for your comment. However, I was only able to find one comment made by you, and it was in multiple languages but not in English. If you would like to re-send a comment in English, in accordance with the swap requirements, then I would be happy to re-rate you and remove the heart. I look forward to hearing from you.
Comment: OMG, we're the same age and live only about an hour away from each other! I'm childfree by choice too, smoke (well not since I'm on these meds) too, prefer Pepsi, not married, love Halloween, cheesecake & McDonald's, hate shopping, love Netflix, born in April ... Hey we must be twins separated at birth! :)
Comment: Haha you wait for your neighbors to shut up too?? I used to live in an apartment building and the people across the hall would blast crappy rap music all day. It was awful! Thanks for joining and happy swapping! :)
Comment: Got the re-send, nothing showed up from the first one you said you sent.
Response: glad the resend got there. why would i send the other 4 envelopes (and rated timely for them, on 8/8, 8/10, 8/11, and 8/21, when the send by date was 8/15) and NOT send yours along with them in the 1st place?
