Comment: Now that I read your email and replied I feel like I should rate you all over again because honestly you're too awesome to forget. We have a lot in common and that is actually a relief because I feel like I'm not the brightest bulb in the box. Anywho I hope to hear from you some more and get to know you and your life and all the excitement. So whenever you feel up to it write me an email.
Comment: Thank you for your letter. I like your swaps. Also thank you for sharing your resolutions with me. I'm sure that you will be successful in working through your two resolutions. Couponing can save lots of money. Good luck with everything.
Response: Thank you :) For the nice comment, the rating and the heart! :) I hope you have a great year as well...
Comment: Hi Jessica, I received your letter a few days ago. (I got sick, hence the late rating.) I enjoyed it and I'll write back as soon as possible. I'm going to try to make it this month but if it doesn't work out then the first month of the new year. :)
Response: Oh no! I hope you are feeling better... Don't worry take your time. This time of the year is usually crazy trying to write anyway :) Thank you for the rating and the heart! :)
Comment: Thank you for the assortment but sadly- I have to say that I was disappointed in the fact the all of the items were from the Dollar Tree. I take the time and only swap the best items.. With that being said - it is very upsetting when you bust your stash for a swap and do not recieve the same effort in return... The envelope was not decorated either. I guess I was expecting better.
Response: I am sorry you didn't like the items. We don't have much in the way of a selection for stationery items where I live. Also I try to go by things on a profile when I send out items. I didn't know the envelope had to be decorated as it is not in the description of the swap. And after being sick with pneumonia for a couple weeks I wasn't up to doing much on the envelope. I was just trying to get what I thought was a nice swap out on time.
Comment: Such a fun card and adorable envelope! Hope you had a great trip and a fabulous rest of the summer!
Response: I'm glad you likes the card and envelope :) My trip went great! And as long as it doesn't get too hot I will have a great one :) Thank you for joining my swap and the rating and heart! I hope your summer is great as well :)
Comment: Dear Jessica - Hi I got your lovely letter just the post today and I'm just going to put the kettle on and have a read. Your writing looks so neat and I'm looking forward to reading your letter. I'll pop a reply in the post next week. All the best and happy swapping, Jane x (jep1068)
Response: Jane, I am glad you think my handwriting looks neat, I'm afraid at times it can get kinda messy :( But hope you are able to read just fine. I look forward to getting your letter! Thanks for the rating as well as the heart!! :)
Comment: Very pretty postcard! To answer your question, the only pointer i can give is - keep at it. There are new records added all the time to the data banks. When I did mine i had to send for the microfilms and research them at the local LDS church. Now i merely click on a leaf in Ancestry.com and get the same info. Amazing! Good luck in your search.
Comment: Thank you for the lovely stickers, stationery, and notecards! I loved everything :) Thank u for reading my profile and sending me Lisa Frank too! hehe :D that was very sweet of you, so appreciated! Awesome swap!
Response: :) I'm so glad you enjoyed it! Thank you for the rating and the heart!!! :)
Comment: Hi Jessica sorry to rate late I was going through all the cards send to me and I found your lovely Christmas card that your sent to me.. it has been hanging in my home all this time during Christmas.
Comment: Love the note cards. Three I have never seen before! Two are the same as I sent. So it is great to be paired with you who has similar taste :) So happy with these cards Thx for the nice note on the cute paper.
Comment: Oh, I LOVE Celia Thaxter's garden book! Great quote Topekagal! I was able to visit her garden on the Isle of Shoals and I have an autograghed copy of her brother's memoirs written when he was 99 years old! Sending a grateful heart!
Response: hehe I'm glad you like the quote :) Wow when he was 99? Oh boy. I can only imagine what a feat that must have been! Thank you for the rating and the heart! :)
Comment: Thanks for your card, I hear a bit about Kansas mainly about the storms you have and I see there is one shown in the painting. so people are use to them happening. Thanks again I am also getting to visit a lot of places in the world. :-)
Comment: Thank you for your sweet letter.. Sorry for the late rating.. I just got back from the mountain.. I hope you don't mind me replying you from email.. Thank you so much from understanding me.. Will reply you soon!! Can't wait to ask you many questions!! You're one tough mother :)
Response: No I don't mind you responding that way at all. :) great I love questions! They are so much easier to answer then just talking about myself not knowing what to say :) I look forward to your email :)
Comment: Thank you so much! I love Piers Anthony! I've read most of his books, but this is one that I have not :) Looking forward to curling up with it this afternoon when our daily storms start to roll in.
Comment: I enjoyed your card but would have loved a little more detail. You made me very curious about which concert you were going to, for example (what artist, I mean, not what time or anything--I'm not a stalker, lol!). I think it's neat though that we both have daughters with July birthdays to celebrate! Mine is just more at the tricycle stage than the going to concerts stage lol
Response: I'm sorry I know when I start writing about things it can get kind of lengthy. It is a four day country concert with four or five bands performing each day so we will be seeing a bunch. My favorite who I am going for is Jason Aldean :) This will be my daughter's first time going to a concert so she 'just' hit the concert stage hehe :)
Comment: Aw, thanks for the kitty cat card! My plan right now is to have a BBQ! What are your bday plans? Hope it's great!
Response: Right now I don't have any plans. I usually have my kids and spend time with them but since it is Father's day they will be with their dad this year. I have to make some plans I guess hehe :) I hope you have a great one as well!! :)
Comment: Hello again! Thank you so much for the reply letter!! I LOVE your handwriting! Haha. An your stationery was cute. :). I can't wait to write back. I have a couple of swaps to catch up on and I'll right back after! Happy swapping!
Response: I'm glad you got it. And thanks about the stationery. It is actually out of a journal as I can't find any regular stationery here :( Thanks about the comment on my handwriting... You are too kind hehe :) I look forward to your letter and no worries I got some swaps to do myself so I know how it goes :)
Comment: Thanks for the card. Our Spring hasn't been too bad. Lots of days of mixed weather, one minute there's sun & blue skies, then next it's pouring...I don't mind the cold & rain, but I wouldn't mind some sunshine, either.
Comment: Thank you Jessica,
Well, chicken is very good for you...so that is a good food to love. : ) Your bee postcard is very pretty. Thank you for sending it my way.
Have a great week. Have good safe fun.
Response: You welcome and I hope you have a great weekend as well! :)
Comment: I really liked reading your picks. You have got some great justifications for your faves and I know that I will start watching your favorites in particular because I think you have helped to sway my mind.
Response: Wow that is cool. I never thought I could sway anyone's minds. Just thought to express my top picks. :) I'm glad they are still in ang get to go on tour now. I think they all will have something good come out of it.
