Comment: Thanks for nice note . Sorry about your mom , my mother had dementia , she passed in January , she was 75 . It was so hard seeing her that way . You have had many years with your mom . Hopefully you will have many more . Thanks for Texas post card also !
Response: Yes, my mom's family all lived into their mid 90's & passed away w/out illness....just old age.
I'm glad you got the post cards. That was pretty fast.
Comment: Thank you so much for resending this!! I had a great vacation, thanks :D
And YES! I have heard about the friends reunion! I can not wait to see how it is going to be, (although I heard Matthew Perry wont be in it :(( )
Thanks again for the nice card!
Comment: Hi Deeno, got the postcards, thank you! And thanks also for the "Magic Eye" one... I've never been able to see anything in them, either, though, unfortunately! But I'll give it a try. (I had peeked at the solution already so I know what I could expect… but I’m not getting my hopes up that it will work for me this time, heh.)
Comment: Thank you for the interesting card. I love nature, this is beautiful.
I have read about Red Tide and seen documentaries about it. It's a peculiar phenomenon.
I've been to Texas, I stayed at Arlington near Fort Worth. There is so much to see in Dallas/Fort Worth, I stayed for three weeks - and that wasn't enough! X
Response: You could have stayed another 3 weeks just to see all the awesomeness in Dallas.
Comment: Hello Deeno1105 (Deeno from United States). I got your envelope today! Thank you so much for the two tea bags and your lovely letter :) Your hand-lettering are beautiful. I hope you receive my "Fado" music postcard as soon as possible. Have a great mail week, maria das trouxas
Response: WOW! You got that fast. I'm glad you liked everything even my hand lettering. I appreciate the compliments. =-}
Comment: The envie was sooo cool, wow the inside of security envies!!! I will be sending it along its way😊 yA, a friend of mine lives in Texas too, crazy rain!!! I hope u stay safe! We are sooo dry here in CA it's unbelievable, now the fires are starting!
Response: Thanks for rating and the heart. Glad you liked the envy. I'm all about recycling and what a fun way.
I think our rain is over..........now for the 90's and 100+ temps. YUCK!!!
Comment: The postcard you sent is lovely! The Anna's Hummingbird is beautiful. I love hummingbirds. We have a feeder outside and we get quite a few. I want to say I have not read any of the books you mentioned but I too am far behind in my fav authors.
Response: I'm happy I chose a card you really like. Thanks for rating and the heart.
Comment: Thank you for the PC! Best wishes for your mama. I hear ya on that. I care for my 85 year old grandpa and 92 year old grandma. Plus my 10 year old autistic son,. So I hear ya. If you ever need to talk, Im here :) Thanks again
Response: Wow! You've got a lot on your plate. Thanks for your kind words, rating & heart. Much appreciated.
Comment: Thanks for being a great member of this series! Also, I LOOOOOVED the extra you sent. Totally up my alley! Thanks for the great addition to my collection! I will pass on the other in the next round! YAY!
Response: So happy you LOOOOOOVED the extra. Thanks for rating, the heart and doing such an awesome job with this swap.
Comment: Thanks, Deeno! Received the card to move along in R28. Love the extra PC of Padre Island....wish I was there! ♥ Keep nuturing...you will have a mighty pecan tree someday! ♥
Response: I'm a life long beach lover. Going this month some time and taking my best friend in Sept. Going to Port Arthur first to see the Janis Joplin display at the museum. Lots of history on her since that's where she was born. Can't wait.
Yes, my pecan tree is growing more & more every day.
Comment: Thank you for your great selection of seed choices. I companion plant every year, so these will come in handy. My favorite is the zinnia, as they just are so cheerful and bright in the garden. I will use the fertilizer spikes on my house plants. Thanks again!
Response: Glad you're happy with my choices. I love Zinnias too. They're so easy to grow and do well in TX heat. Thank you for rating and the heart.
Comment: Deeno...Thanks for the PC of "Old Glory"! Enjoyed your note...her in NY we do not plant until after Memorial Day. We are having true "March winds" today but I did go out and enjoyed a walk this morning on my winding country road :) Happy spring and happy gardening...Charlene
Response: Winding country road sounds wonderful. It's 60 here now and suppose to get rain. Glad you liked your PC. Thanks for rating and the heart.
Comment: Great package, and a nice surprise cause. I loved how you decorated the envelope. The contents were perfect for me. I would love to try to make that quilt in the magazine. Thanks for being my buddy.
Response: So happy you liked your surprise and the envy.I would love to make a quilt but that would mean learning to sew so that's not gonna happy anytime soon. LOL!
Comment: Oh my word, your package was such a great surprise and such a picker-upper!!! I wish I could give you like a million hearts, it just made me smile so much!! I am so glad to have you as part of the group and I'm so glad that you've been pleased with your experience in it so far. A million thank you's, I felt so blessed when I found it in my mailbox! :)
Response: I was hoping you'd be REALLY surprised and sounds like you were. Glad you liked your surprises too. Thanks for the rating and the 5 (you know that's not what I was fishin' for). Much appreciated.
Comment: At first glance, I thought that was the inside of an animal or something like that! LOL. It's not something I would have picked out at the store, but I really enjoyed receiving it so thank you! :)
Response: I'm sure you enjoyed receiving it. LOL!
Thank you for rating and wasn't expecting a heart but it's much appreciated.
Comment: Deeno...Thanks for the PC from your recent travels. What a nice long vacation in the south. How warm was it? We are down to 0 tonight!! The starfish you were able to get sounds awesome :) Always good to hear from you...stay well, Charlene
Response: During the day it was high 60s & at night low 40s. It was in the low 70s a couple of days. It was great. I'd love it to be cold where I live so it would feel like winter. 0° is a bit too cold tho. Thanks for rating & the ♥. Stay warm if that's even possible.
Comment: Thank you for the awesome extra postcard! Also the welcomed surprise of the teas :+) it is extra cold so I am sitting down now to enjoy a cup before I head to work. :-) Thank you again!! Wish I could give you another heart.
Comment: What a happy swap I received today! The soap is really nice; it does smell like cinnamon. The pen is adorable,and gave my little daughter a lot of entertainment. And chocolate...:D the lip balm is a lovely one! Thank you!
Response: So glad you liked your gifts and happy your little girl likes the pen. Thank you for the rating & the♥.
Response: I pm'd you and left comment on your profile to rate me but you never communicated with me that you never received it. You ignored me and then left a 1 rating. You didn't give me a chance to resend. What's up with this?
I've never received anything but 5 ratings as you can plainly see.
Comment: Hi Deeno, I got your ATC and all the goodies. Fortunately this swap did arrive (I fear your pink swap has gone lost, but then you never know). Thank you for the swap. I love the ATC and the goodies will prove very useful!
Response: I'm happy you received my ATC and like it. My partner finally received my pink one so it's all GOOD. Waiting for the black rating now. Thanks for rating and the heart.
Comment: HI There yay! I was glad to find this neat card in my PO box! I had to look up where the Padre Island area was but it looks so neat! I hope you and your hubs had a great time and that you and that you have a great round 2 trip with your friend in a few weeks! :)
Response: I love it and I'm SOOO ready to go back. Since this is only her second time to go, I still have to show her the ropes. Glad you liked it and thanks for the heart.
Comment: Hi Deeno, thank you so much for your ATC. It was beautifully done; one of the better Altered Text ATCs I've seen! I also loved the sentence you created :-D. I also want to thank you for the postcards and your note, I really enjoyed reading it. It's always fun to hear from people we have things in common with. I hope we get to swap again in the future!
Response: I'm so happy to hear you like it and thanks for your kind words. I'm sure we will cross paths again.
Thanks for rating and the heart.
Comment: Sorry I didn't rate sooner. Love the W especially using colored stock and ink. What did you use for the white around it? Very cool. And W is for witch - that's what it reminds me of. Thanks for the stickers too
Response: I used a while gelly roll pen. I'm so glad you like it. There was no plan. It took me where it wanted to go. LOL!
Thank you for the heart.
Comment: Thank you for the Insect pictures you added to my profile. I also like praying mantis, we have egg sacks from them around here that last the whole winter (in Iowa) and then hatch in the late spring with babies everywhere. We made a mistake one year and brought it inside and they hatched in the house. Funniest thing!
Comment: Thanks for the great squares. This is my first round so I only have 7 right now (was sent an extra one). I like to make granny squares too, but don't like to put them together...lol! This will be a fun one, so maybe not so bad.
On a side note, my maiden name was Moss.
Response: Glad you liked my squares and I agree with you on joining them.
We Moss people ROCK! LOL
Comment: Hi Deeno, as always I enjoy receiveing from you. Beautiful work on the R ATC. You are do great and I dont think I would ever get tired of receiving from you. You take care of your sweet mom, I lost my mom when I was twenty and wish I had a mom to take care of. Deb
Comment: Thank you Deeno for the background papers. I love the book pages. My daughter lives in Austin and has a few longhorns. They are beautiful animals.
Did you tangle the envie? It's awesome if you did.
Response: I'm happy you liked everything. Your daughter is SO lucky to live in Austin. Yes I tangled the envie one evening while watching TV.
Comment: The journal you made is so nice and your handwriting is beautiful! I look forward to being able to sit down tonight and actually read everything! Based on your letter we definitely do seem to have a lot in common. :) If you'd be interested in being penpals or doing a private journal swap sometime, let me know!
Comment: Beautiful grannies! Love all the little extras you included. Thanks for checking out my pinterest site. I haven't tried the blackout poems yet but they are on my list - we can be newbies together :)
Response: Thank you! I'm glad you liked the Grannies and the extras!
I'd love to learn Blackout poems with you. Let me know when you wanna try it. Thanks for rating and the heart. Much appreciated.
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful monotangle and the teas! With the chilly weather we've been having I am definitely going to need lots and lots of tea to make it through the winter. Hope to swap with you again! <3
Response: I'm glad you liked the tangle & teas! I'm pretty sure we'll be swappin' again soon. Thanks for rating and the heart.
Comment: Deeno Thank you. Love my A, Wish the ones I send were as good as what is being sent to me. Each one i get shows me different ways so hopefully mine will start looking as good.The Tea's are wonderful and the stickers are cute.
Response: Practice, Practice and yes, more practice. I'm happy you like the A and the extras. I'm sure we'll be swapping again real soon.
Comment: Great Tangle M...I love this one too. Although I must admit yours look better than mine. hmmm, practice, practice I guess. Thanks too for the nice note, notecard and extras. Hope to swap again. TTFN
Response: Thank you for rating & the heart. I'm so happy you liked the tangle and goodies. I'm sure I'll swap with you again.
Comment: Thanks for the TX cockroach. HA! and Thanks for the tip on the one mystery plant: I've never grown okra, but pics online do look similar! Still waiting for the flowers to turn into fruit, tho...
Response: I've had that mystery plant on my mind ever since I saw your photo. I'd love to hear what it is if you ever find out.l
I've never seen an Armadillo alive in all my years in TX. Always road kill. LOL!
Comment: It's so nice to receive from you so regularly :) I'm sure the partner generator will pair us up again soon - maybe with me sending to you next time. The "5" is gorgeous! Thank you. Since I am doing more and more ATCs I really appreciate the extras you sent. More virtual hearts to you!
Response: Thanks so much for you comments. I'll take as many virtual hearts as you wanna send!
Comment: Thanks! I loved the way you indicated which patterns you used! I hope you don't mind if I copy your idea! Great ATC!
Response: I'm glad you want to copy me. I feel it's one of the best ways to show the patterns. I've gotten them before & never taken the tracing paper off so I won't forget the patterns used.
Thanks for rating & the heart. =-)
Comment: Whew it made it! (geez what happened postal guys? I was becoming a little worried.) Thank you for the beautiful ATC and extra balloon stickers. I love the patterns you used. Thanks again for holding this make up swap. :)
Response: I'm happy you got it. Probably went around the U.S. before getting to you. LOL! Glad you like it. Thanks for rating and the heart.
Comment: You sent a beautiful letter A! The Jetties are fabulous (I have trouble with that one - who knows why?!?!) and your Hi-Cs turned out very well - I love that tangle too. Thanks for the note as well. Hope the moms are doing okay and what an exciting time for your daughter! Take care.
Response: I'm so happy to hear you liked my tangle. I always seem to come back to Jetties.
My mom is better but MIL......not so much but thank you. Yeah, daughter went shopping last night for dorm linens. Peace and Quite time in 30 days & counting. =-)
Thanks for the rating and the heart.
Comment: Thank you for the great #2 and the wonderful handwritten note. I am sure you will eventually get one of my Tangles, but in the meantime you can see the ones I have already sent on my Flikr account. the link is in my profile. And thanks again. =)
Response: Thank you for rating and the heart. I'm so happy you liked my tangle. That's what it's all about right?
Comment: I guess swap-bot has a destiny in mind for the two of us. :) :) That's okay! Thank you for the lovely ATC and I look forward to future swaps with you or simply with you as the host. <3 And...the curvy tangles come with time and patience. I used to abhor them!
Response: Thanks for the rating and the heart.
Yes.....I continue practicing the dreaded curves and waves. LOL!
Comment: Thanks for the lovely B...so intricate and detailed! I adored the zebra card, too! :) Thank you for the compliments on my Flickr photos. I would love to do a private swap if you'd ever like to!
Response: I'm so happy you liked my tangle and thanks for your kind words. I'm always up for private swaps. Just let me know what you wanna do and pm me with your ideas.
Thanks for rating so fast and the heart. Much appreciated!
Comment: Thank you so much for such a warm and heart-felt letter. This is an amazing swap -- I feel honored to be part of such a special rememberance. I, too, want to visit the museum someday. Looking forward to seeing your butterflies. Great swapping with you again! <3<3<3
Comment: Awesome Zentangles! I especially like the style of the letters. And don't worry about the one day. One week to make two personal Zentangles isn't a lot of time. And your swapping card is SO cool!
Response: Thank you I'm glad you liked it. Thank you for the rating and the heart. =-)
Comment: Thank you so much for the funny postcard! I love it! I'm with you: i love making these now! And I think it is super creative to make her a busted project runway model! Paul laughted and snached it from me when he saw it :)
Response: LOL! That's so funny! I had a blast making it! I hope there will be more of these morph swaps.
Comment: Thank you so much for the most amazing zentangle. I have very little patience with them and have only done 3 of them and none of them are as good as they could be...As for your note, I will be replying to that soon. Thank you!
Comment: Hands down my favorite thing was the envelope! I'm a sucker for decorated envies.:) My second favorite thing was without a doubt the mulling spice packet. I like to put it in cranberry juice and heat that puppy up in the microwave! Delicious and it smells *amazing*! Thank you very much for a very generous and fun package! So much neat stuff to discover. Thanks! :)
Response: Great! I'm glad you liked your goodies and the envelope.
Comment: Great tangles. I love the variety, fine lines, and excellent shading. Also loved the wonderful letter. Seems that you've been a busy girl. We'll have to get back to emails! See ya at the mail box!
Response: Thank you, thank you. I'm glad you liked my tangle. I'm sending a letter to you in the next couple of days.
Comment: I am so sorry for not rating you sooner. It had nothing to do with your beautiful ATC Zentangle, which by the way I love. It is an excellent addition to my series. Your lines are so true and your pattern selection is wonderful. My belated rating was probably due to a brain fart and the holidays and I am truly in-bare-ass-ed for the delay. I would give you more hearts for you patience If I could. <3<3<3<3<3 5-hearts rating!
Response: No worries. Thanks for the rating and the heart(s). I'm glad you liked the zentangle. I try to incorporate a pattern I've never tried before each time I tangle. I love the challenges! Thanks again!!!
Comment: Wow! One of my most favorite cards of this series. It's so bright & cheerful. It made me smile when I opened the envelope! And love, love. love the map bits. What a find for a quarter!
Response: I'm glad you like the "P". I really almost couldn't give it up. I was please how it came out and and really happy you like it too. I love a bargain and if it's a paper product.......all the better! LOL!
Thanks for rating and the heart.
Comment: My goodness, where was this package hiding for the last four weeks? It showed up today without a scratch! Thanks for thinking of me when picking out my goodies :-) I'm wearing my old glasses until I get my new ones repaired, so I can't see all the details in the PC. I've lived in Arizona, so I will be the judge as to whether this is typical of the West, or maybe just of Texas :-)
Response: I'm happy it turned up and you're happy with what I sent. Let me know about the PC. LOL!
Comment: Thanks for a great ATC. Paradox is one I have trouble with also, yours turned out great. The Halloween stickers are really cute. I really like your ATC. Thanks for a great addition to my alpha collection!
Comment: Wow you really did your homework it was profile perfect. All the little bits of metal will go into a wonderful assemblage project and I love the golf cleat pretzel is licking the Donald and teasing the cat with the kitty toy I unwrapped the yarn for the goodies lol and I loved the letters made it even more fun
Response: I'm glad you liked the goodies and had fun with it. I'm happy, too, that Pretzel likes his little toy!
Comment: Thanks for this pretty ATC. I like the pattern at the left side of the Y, it looks like a variation of Hollibaugh. Do you know its name or is it your tangelation?
Response: It's suppose to be a variation of Shard. But it also looks a bit like intersection and Holllibaugh. I guess it's my own interpretation of all three tied together. Glad you liked it. Thank you for rating and the Heart.
Comment: Thanks for the super nice zentangle ATC. Kandysnake was a new pattern for me too and it will be fun to practice. You did an incredible job on Keeko - mine always looks funky. Marvelous job on the shading. Thanks for joining my swap series -- next one is posted. :) Hope you feel better soon!
Response: Thank you for the compliments. I'm glad you liked my zentangle. I'm signed up for all of your swaps. Thanks for hosting them. Thanks too for the rating and the heart.
Comment: I love White Snake. I grew up with them, since my parents loved them. I was going to put a classic rock section on mine, but I figured I listed enough already. My favorite classic rock group of all time is poison and acdc.
Response: I like a few songs from Poison and AC/DC but not all their stuff. Same with Whitesnake. A few here and there but not all. I'm glad you heard something you liked though.
Comment: add some bonus hearts for this swap! I love it all! The jump rope is great! I am so excited to give it to my son. I couldn't find a boy one ANYWHERE! Everything is so great I can't wait to add the pics to my scrapbook. I love estate sales too! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!
Response: I'm happy you liked your "stuff" and I'm so happy I was able to find your son that jump robe. Thank you for rating and for the heart.
Comment: Hi Deeno...thank you so much for the amazing zentangles and beautifully addressed envelope! (I love calligraphy) I would rate your tangles an 8 at least! They're gorgeous! I don't know any patterns either...and just sort of go at it and make up my own. Not sure if that's "right" or not...but it sure is fun! I love how you adhered them to beautiful paper as well...it makes them so substantial. A tip I'll remember for next time! Thank you again...! You made mail fun today!
Response: I'm really happy you like my tangles. I too have a great time making them. I'm trying daily to learn new patterns. I'm glad you had a "happy mail" day. I didn't get anything today. :-(
Comment: Thank you for the tiny tangle, nice letter, stickers and sparkly envie---it was a very nice swap. I had not really used the 005 micron before this swap either, I tend to stick with the 02-08 range. I am not used to getting swaps before I send mine out, so it was a nice surprise to get this one early. Thanks again.
Response: I'm so happy you liked my tiny tangles, and everything else. I usually use the same sized pens you do. Thanks for rating and the heart.
Comment: I loved it!!! You did a great job with it! I also appreciate the templates, especially the 1 inch one! thanks for the tips on how to cover the envie, interestingly I was trying to figure out how you did it before I read your note!!!! You did great!
Response: Thanks for your kind words. I'm glad you liked everything. Now you can make your tiny envies. LOL! Thanks for rating and the heart. I appreciate it.
Comment: I'm so sorry I didn't rate immediately! Your email wound up filtered into spam (why? I'll never know) and after I saw you'd sent I went searching. I LOVE all the little images you put in! Adorable! I don't know if you have a program that does that or if you took all that time to insert them, but it made this so much fun to read!
Response: Those little icons are on my email program. Just click the one you want and click where you want it. I love to put em in.......makes emails a bit less boring when you're reading. Thanks for rating. I'm glad you found the email.
Comment: I smile when I see your name. How lucky can I get. I love your taste in music. Out of all the music in these swaps that you have picked thave have been less than 5( and probably with some to spare before they reach the 5) songs that I didn't like. You give me new music to love and remind me of old songs that I've loved in the past. If you ever stop joining it will be a great loss. Keep Smiling anf Keep Swapping (please)! Suzanne
Response: Thank you so much. I'm so happy you've liked my choices and have heard some new songs. Thanks for the kind words. Hugs!!!
Comment: Thanks so much ... I enjoyed reading your answers! I've always wanted to go to Prince Edward Island, too ... not because of the books (I've actually never read them), but just because it looks amazing! And I've love to meet Billy Joel - lucky. :-) Sorry to hear about your friend ... I hope she's doing as well as can be expected.
Comment: I loved the bit of trivia you had with the songs. I didn't know the last two songs, but that's what these swaps are for to remember the old and to perhaps find some new we might like. I'd give you two hearts if I could, but since I can't... Keep Smiling and Keep Swapping. Suzanne.
Response: Thanks for the rating and the heart. I'd take 2 if they let me, LOL. I'm glad you liked the trivia. I had other songs from Jimmy Buffet but couldn't find a good video for them.
Comment: Excellent choices! I like quite a few of the same. Jim Morrison isn't the only singer that has been over come by the lifestyle and the drugs. I'm sure he won't be the last. I like the notes by the way.
Comment: Thank you so much for the drawing! When I first saw it, I thought "oh wow, she's an artist." But you said you aren't. This is great and I feel bad for my partner, mine is nothing like this. I loved reading your letter and would love to stay in touch! Thanks again for the beautiful "kitty" picture!!!
Response: Thanks for your kind words, the rating and the heart. Please write to me.....you have my address.
Comment: Thank you so much for the very neat Collage & I have counted twice but came up with different #'s, so will do it again..What a neat idea....& yes, we have crossed paths, I too was raised in Dallas.....& lived in Sherman for a couple of years.....now North East Texas...again, thank you for something so special.....
Comment: Loved your granny square!!! I also crochet for several charities, although I haven't had much time lately with my mom in the hospital and all...but she's doing good and I hope to pick up crocheting again. Thank you!
Comment: What an awesome pc and that you have such nice things to say about your town and state! We were in Texas about 18 years about for a quick visit, so we really did not have time to experience much - hopefully next time!! lol
Comment: Thank you for the super fun box and all the great goodies! And thanks for sending so soon! I am still working on yours and hoping it will turn out just as cute! BTW, my oldest daughter is doing a wreck this journal, so she really thought it was cool that you incorporated yours! Oh, yes, and the little shell owl is my favorite!
Response: I'm glad you liked your box and that your daughter is doing Wreck This Journal. I may have to send her "My Favorite Page" when I decided what it is.
Comment: Sorry, I was off from interpals for a while because of exams so that's why I took so long to rate. Thank you for the letter, and I was glad it was so long. Also, thanks for the key! Love keys!
Response: I'm glad you like the key. My daughter was a bit testy when i told her i sent it to you. She loves key too. So Sad So Sorry for her. :-)
First of, I loved your card. sorry for all your problems you are having. The back is a hurting thing,I no.Now thank you so much for all the nice goodies,I am sure I will find a place to use them.
Take care and may you be blessed.
Have a good day.
Response: I'm still learning how to get around this Swap bot site. Not sure where to leave comments. Sorry if I'm duplicating.
I'm glad you liked the goodies and hope your back feels betters. Blessings to you!
Comment: Thank you so much for your absolutely fantastic letter! It's one of the best first letters I've ever received :o) And thanks so much for including the stickers for the kids and the info about Allen - it's so interesting! I will be writing back very soon :o)
