Comment: Dear niece,
Thank you for the letter. I hope that your scales turn out to be something grand that brings you pride. I was able to reread the letter the next day, so perhaps I too am part mermaid.
Comment: Your lovely journal arrived today! Its awesome i love it. I think you did amazing with everything!!
Thank you for the extras. I never expect extras as this is a time intensive expensive tyle of swap. So thank you very much. ðŸ’œðŸ’šðŸ’™ðŸ‰
Response: Thank you again for having the swap. Sorry that I asked so many questions. I appreciate that you worked with me.
Comment: I see what you are saying. We both love hamburgers. I like cheesecake but without the nuts. I will respond to your letter. You did a great job on the cards I love them. I will agree we are both foodies.

Response: Yay!! Thank you for rating. II was unsure about making it all harley Q themed, (in case you didn't like here that much), but really glad you liked it. I look forward to hearing back from you.
Comment: Hey! Sorry for taking so long to rate! I got busy and I wanted to make sure I had the time to leave a well thought rating. :) Thank you so much for the amazing journal you created! Let's start with the theme. I absolutely love Harry Potter! I love how the journal looks like a Harry Potter text book and the inclusion of the trunk with awesome Harry Potter goodies inside! I cannot believe those are polymer clay! They looks so intricate and amazing. :D Everything had so much detail it's amazing. The pages inside were beautiful as well. You are so talented and did an amazing job. I also love that you included quotes from both Albus and Snape. :) The acceptance letter is fantastic. It puts a very realistic edge to the journal. And I love the little Owl included. :D Thank you so much for this awesome journal swap! I will definitely be showing off your journal to my Harry potter obsessed friends. :D It is so amazing. :)
Response: So glad that you liked it:) It was really fun to make and a good reason to start reading the books again. I really enjoyed swapping with you:)
