Comment: Alisha: Thanks for the re-send. Your ATC was awesome! Wish I could have seen the original . . . I will be sure to keep you posted if it turns up. Thanks again - Judy
Response: So glad this one made it. I really hope the original finds it way there someday - I think you would very much enjoy the extras I had in there! And if you want to see the original, I posted it on my Flickr page for you! :D. Thanks for the rating - glad all worked out.
Comment: (clicks the heart check-box to give you multiple hearts, except it doesn't work that way, oh well.)
I was SO confused when I got a random postcard and I couldn't figure cus I hadn't joined any naked postcard swaps. XD But then I sorted through the other mail and found the other postcard which had the swap name on it, and the envie with the ATC in it! THANKS SO MUCH! (PS you have pretty handwriting!) We do indeed have many coyotes around here. I live about 10 minutes east of Tacoma/40 minutes south of Seattle, and its a small city, but lots of open fields and little patches of woods. So there are a lot of coyote, though no wolves! "My" zoo in Tacoma has 2 polar bears that are so much fun to watch play-fighting with each other. :) The wolves bookmark is GORGEOUS! What a beautiful photo of their amazing gaze! And I'm sorry about your summer! It seems the rest of the US is having a drought, except for you guys in alaska, and us here in western Washington! Coldest/wettest summer in years! (though I'm sure yours is a bit colder and wetter than ours...) The ATC is cute! I love that you used a dictionary for your "grow" subject. and the made in Alaska stamp on the back is a perfect touch. THANKS!
Response: Thanks, Rachel, for the sweet rating and comments! If I lived anywhere else, it'd probably be where you are, even though there are warmer places. :D. I'm glad you liked the ATC - I had fun making it! Can't wait to swap again - hugs! ðŸ˜Š
Comment: You are known as "the lady in Alaska" the boys asked where's the package from, I said Alaska! They said oh boy let's open it!!! We love every little thing, the pig with hag on his back is sooo cute!! Thank you
Response: I have the best time swapping with you! I've done more private swaps with you than anybody else, and they are always so much fun! Say hi to the boys for me - hope everyone is feeling well and enjoying the last little bit of summer! ðŸ·
Comment: I LOVE the Zentangled Altered Text ATC you made for me! No to mention the extra music goodies! Sorry for the delay in rating. I just got back from vacation and had mountain of mail (and laundry!!)
Response: Thanks so much - you're sweet - my zentangling is definitely a work in progress! :D Hugs!
Comment: OMG! I loved, loved, loved this swap! It was definitely above and beyond! Loved the dominoes, the Gir pendant, and so much more! I was impressed and thrilled one of the nicest swaps in awhile! Thank you! :-)
Response: You're so welcome - I love hearing that a swap I sent put a smile on someone's face - that's what it's all about! :D It was fun to put together - hope we get to swap again in the future! â™¥

Which sticker did you want to see on my car? You have a lot of things I like and I thank you for spoiling me today!
Response: Aww, you're so sweet! I'm glad you liked it! I had been saving that skeleton image since last Halloween for just the right occasion, and I thought it was perfect for you - ha, ha! It was from a candy bar wrapper our local hospital had made. :D The Alaska skeleton fish sticker is actually sold up here as a car decal, but of course I'm just kidding about putting on your car! I just thought it was cute and reminded me of you! :D Thanks again for hosting this series, and I look forward to getting you as a partner again! Big Hugs!! â™¥

Response: You're so welcome - I'm glad you liked it; I liked the way that one turned out as well. Very uncluttrered compared to my usual style - lol!

Comment: Thank you so much for the beautiful ATC and the envelope of extra goodies! We do have a lot in common -in high school, someone gave me the nickname of "moose" and "moosie" and it stuck. Yes, my Husky is named for your capital (not exactly Siberian but it's close), We visited Juneau three years ago on a Holland America cruise. We started in Seattle and traveled to Juneau, Sitka, Glacier Bay, Vancouver, etc. I got to go to the summer camp of the Iditirod mushers and see the dogs. Thank you, Marjorie
Comment: I feel like I hit the jackpot!!! Thank you so much for the beautiful yellow fairy - she is going up on my studio 'wall of favorites". . . and the PCs are fabulous! I'd love to see a picture of your 'porkies' - I'm sure they are adorable!!! Our black & tan has the longest fur I've ever seen - she looks like a huge black caterpillar when she's laying down. . .and she is my 'love bug'. I've had 2 poms previously but they were both 'blondies', both of which have now (sadly) crossed the Rainbow Bridge. Thanks again for th beautiful ATC and the PCs. . . happy imagineering!!

Its adorable with the scottie and so ME! and speaking of ME... the mary englebreit cherries are a fun thing too... for a bit i wondered what i could do with them but have decided to alter each page a different way and then hang them around my little ME collection. just using different mediums to make them cherry like. Still way to fun to get this package from you! Even the envelope was awesome. Thank you thank you !

I LOVE all the little critters you made (how freaking CUTE is that little gnome)! I am going to have to come up with a really awesome way to display them all. The little birchwood squirrel is so going to be hung from my rearview mirror. I've always wanted to hang something there, but never had anything I thought was special enough. The second I saw this little guy I knew he was it! And the owl keychain is just awesome! I love interesting keychains and this one is so cool! I really can't express how much I have enjoyed swapping with you and I so hope we can do it again! Heck, I'd do a private swap with you every month! Lol.

Comment: Sorry for taking so long to rate -- we have been away and I am just catching up! The kangaroo is great! And the card is neat too -- I will be sending a picture of it to my daughter in Juneau. She is a Family Assistance Counselor for the Nat'l guard, and she teaches card-making classes for the spouses during the "movie nights" they sponsor for families. She will love this, and I am sure she will use it as a starting point for a card project! BTW, in case I didn't mention it, her daughter is a soph at UAF and I am sure she would be happy to answer questions if that would help with your daughter's decision making. Thanks again, and happy swapping!

Comment: Girl, you da bomb!!! My package is SPECTACULAR!!! I love the kitty bookmark, I've never seen one like it before! Everything you sent me is fantastic!

They are stunning! Thank you very, very much for such a deliciously packed package of love from Alaska! xoxoxo =) Patti

Comment: Thanks for the moose! And the kitty stickers you stuck on the back. We have a lot of moose here in NH too.

I cannot wait for my ABC ATCs (yes, they are a doozy to create :D) Thank you again! hugs and swap-bot love!
Response: Hugs back, Kate! I'm so glad you liked the stickers - it was of course a blast to go through them all to pick :D. I'm excited to see if you like the ATCs!! Thanks so much for the awesome rating! â™¥â™¥
Comment: Loved the card. I went to Alaska once and didn't get to stay long enough. I would love to come back sometime!
Response: Definitely try and come back! Winter or summer - they're both great for different reasons, but you're right - you need awhile to see all the awesomeness!! :D Thanks so very much for the rating and heart! â™¥
Comment: Thank you for this great swap package!! Great twinchies for your first try - the one called 'Moonbeam' is actually my favorite. :-) I see you like Sandylion stickers too. ;-) Thank you so much for the great extras, I really appreciate it. I hope we swap again sometime too! :-)
Response: You're welcome! "Moonbeam" was my favorite as well :D Thanks for being kind re my twinchie newbieness! Hugs!â™¥
Comment: This really was an awesome swap. Thank you for all you put into it. I now have my first cell phone charm...and it has my name on it!!! That, as you probably know doesn't happen to often. I love the ATC, it's very creative. Thank for the extra's . Grandson, Ethyn has already eaten the candy.
Response: Thanks, Alicia! Yes, I love things with my name on them, so I love to give them as well! :D Glad you liked the ATC - I was pretty happy with the way it turned out. Glad Ethyn was able to enjoy the package as well - lol! â™¥
Comment: Loved everything! What a wonderful package! How cute are those little dice beads? Can't wait to make something with them. Veronica will be so excited when she gets home to find her prizes too! I would give you a ga-jillion hearts if I could *hugs*
Response: Thank you so much for the nice comments and rating! I'm so glad you liked everything. Those dice ARE adorable, aren't they? So colorful! Hugs & smiles! :D
Comment: You are an Awesome Swapper. Thank you for the Snowman and Chihuahau BC Magnets. The Necklace is so cute and I am wearing it now - showing it off at work.
Thank you, Thank you with a Hug and a extra Heart:-)
Response: You are sweet and I enjoyed being your swap partner. I really am glad you like the necklace - I wasn't sure if you even wore them, but figured it was pretty cute so you could hang it up somewhere if nothing else :D. Lots of hugs and smiles back!! â™¥
Comment: If I could give an infinite number of hearts for this I would! I can't begin to express how happy I was going through your package.. I was like a 2 year old at christmas! I loved everything you included! I have something else that I am not finished with that I wanted to include with yours so as soon as its done I will send it your way!
Thank you again for doing this swap with me..
Response: I'm so glad you liked everything!! It was so very fun to try and put together a package that you would enjoy (especially since it was your b-day!) :D I love the things you make, so I can't wait â™¥ Thank you for setting up this swap for us!
Comment: Those little stuffies are adorable!! You sure don't seem like a beginner!! I just love the stickers and magnet you sent too! Thank you so much for such a wonderful swap!! :)
Response: Oh, thanks, Kelly! I was pretty happy with how they turned out, and definitely want to make some more stuffies! I'm glad you liked the other little things, too! Thanks so much for the rating (and the heart!!) :D
Comment: Hey - great pics of the minion! My extended family is soo very jealous of my little guy. Shew, Alaska is sounding pretty good to me these days. Next time you do DisneyWorld, we should swap houses --- though maybe 5 cats and a pup might be more than you bargained for... yipe!
Response: Ha, ha - the house swap sounds great! We can set up a private swap for it - lol! We have had as many as 7 cats and 3 dogs at a time, so we'd take good care of them (I love a good cat mauling!) :D. Thanks so much for the great rating and heart!
Comment: Okay.. wow.. just wow! First off, thank you for the Tokidoki ATC. It's great!!! I love it. Second, thank you for EVERYTHING ELSE! That little plushie is ADORABLE! I love toast with faces on it. Seriously! I drew an entire series of postcards dedicated to the escapades of toast. lol. The octopus charm is sooo adorable. And all the postcards and stickers. WOW. THANK YOU! if I could give you a million more hearts, I would!! It def. did put a smile on my face. <3 <3
Response: Thanks, Issy! That's funny about the toast - it must be fate! :D I'm so glad you enjoyed the ATC and the package, and thank you for the sweet comments! Hugs â™¥
Comment: hello again :) i was so excited to see u were my partner again. i just love your packages. thank you so much for the playing cards and all the extra goodies. they will definitely come in handy! <3
Response: I was happy to see your name come up, too! Thanks so very much for the nice words, and I can't wait until we swap again! â™¥
Comment: I'm totally speechless. You went so above and beyond with this swap. Everything was perfect! All the address labels are too cute, I love every single magnet you made (especially the "With Great Moustache..." one), the kitty keychain hangs in my car! Oh, You're the first person to send me something Anne Boleyn related. I love the ATC; my favorite in my collection! ... I can't even believe you sent me "Tales of Beedle the Bard" (I do already have it) but I just about died when I saw it in there! That was so very sweet of you. I promise you we will be swapping again! This was so much fun to give and receive. Thank you very much. =)
Response: I am SO happy that you liked everything! I can't believe I'm the first one to send you an A.B. item! I looked all over the internet for a stuffie or some kind of pattern, but couldn't find a thing. I'm really glad you liked the ATC - it is rather simple, but I struggle with anything non-cutesy! :D I had a feeling you might already have the book, but didn't want to ask because that would've spoiled the surprise if you hadn't (& I know you'll find the perfect home for it!). This was a super fun swap - I can't wait to do it again!!! â™¥
Comment: Your altered fork is beautiful! The tie-dyed color effect looks so cool! Did you make the teapot? Oh! and the Spider-man box you put it in is fantastic! Thank you very much.
Response: Thanks, Vanessa! I actually ordered that teapot charm several years ago on eBay and have been waiting for the perfect project to use it on. I thought "She loves tea, she works at Starbucks - awesome!". And I had the alcohol ink colors to match, so it seemed like fate :D. I'm so glad you liked it - it was an interesting project for me! XOXO
Comment: Wow Alisha-this is really a beauty! Thanks so much and I will treasure her. And your goodie papers will come in handy! Great job on the envelope-it was like a present.
Thanks for reading my profile. I have a set of all the ATCs I made on Flickr, not just a few-perhaps you just saw my photostream. Hope to trade with you again! : )
Response: Thank you Dianne! I hope we get to be swap partners again, and I will be on the receiving end! :D I feel silly - I found the ATC pics when I looked hard enough (I think I got sidetracked before with the other great shots). Thanks again! â™¥
Comment: WOW! Gone goofy! Thank you for all the wonderful things that you sent me.
The chocolate made it and it is gone with the help of 3 boys. I love all my post cards and also the flat tile that you sent to me! Just plain Goofy....
Thanks again. Hugs
Comment: You are beyond expectation. Full envie of papers including cards that are not sold here and the purse card definitely catches my eye. Thanks so much Alisha. I wish I could give you more hearts because you deserve it!
Response: Thank you so much - I'm glad everything arrived safe and sound. I like that little purse card, too - it's a really neat pattern, isn't it? Hopefully we will swap again! :D
Comment: wow awesome job on your first matchbox!! very impressive. I know how surprising it is how much we can get inside those itty bitty boxes! I adore the light switch cover (twilight), the awesome rubber stamp, ad other kitty tid bits. Awesome package!!
Response: Thanks Robyn - that's very sweet. I had a really fun time with the matchbox, and I'm super glad you liked the other things as well! â™¥
Comment: Thanks for the great birthday card and presents. I love Mickey Mouse and the earings are super. I always love getting Alaska cards. Your swap partner, Linda
Response: Thanks, Linda - that was a different swap for me in that I didn't make anything for it, and that it was such a quick turnaround... But it was fun to find something to fit in an envelope with the card - I'm glad you liked everything :D
Comment: I didn't even know you had me for this swap :) I usually check who my partner is and this time I didn't-so it was a great surprise! I loved everything and it was lots of fun to open-especially the C charm with Mickey ears and all the Disney stuff! I have never heard of Vinylmation before, so this is my first piece. Also, I have actually never been to Disney World, but dream about it all the time. Disneyland about 150 times! I love the chocolate too-I am really not picky-any milk chocolate candy with nuts makes me happy! BTW-if this is how you stalk someone-it is way fun!! LOL ;)
Response: How fun - a surprise - love that! I'm glad to be your intro to Vinylmation - it's definitely their new "thing". They were everywhere and they even opened a new store in Downtown Disney dedicated to them when we were there. LOTS of really cute ones (and more to come I'm sure)!! You must keep up your dream to visit the World, no matter how many times you've been to Disneyland. Sooooo very much more of the experience! I could bore you to death will everything you MUST see and do there, and the best way to do it - ha,ha! So glad you liked the chocolate - it's always fun to get a little dose of sweet in a package! :D Hugs to you and the family!! â™¥
Comment: The package you sent was so amazing! I loved everything you included, from the little orca, to the awesome selection of papers, to the wonderful collection of brads. You really made my day, thank you so much!
Response: You are so very welcome! I loved putting it together - I had trouble stopping when it came to the paper of course, but... there's always the next swap! Thanks for the sweet comments :D
Comment: What a special birthday card - it really was so wonderful! Thank you so much - and I love the stationery - there will be *no* regifting!!! I wish I could give multiple hearts, you're so thoughtful!!! xx
Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed it - thank you for letting me know with the sweet rating and comment!
Comment: <3 <3 you deserve a dozen hearts. I haven't gotten such a blessing from a swap in a long time. You really outdid yourself on this one. Thank you so much for EVERYTHING. The atc was awesome and all the extra blessing. WOW we will surely swap again in the future!
Response: Cindy, I'm so glad you enjoyed the swap! It was fun to find little mouse images for the ATC that would fit right. :D And I can't wait for our private swap so I can get one of your awesome hand drawn ATCs!! â™¥ Hugs...
Comment: Thank you so much for the package! It was so exciting opening all the little packages inside. I absolutely LOVE what you sent. Especially the rubber stamp. You did a wonderful job! And my kitty LOVES her new toy too. She says thank you :)
Response: Oh, tell her she's welcome and give her a little kiss for me :D. I'm glad you liked the package - it's hard to go wrong with cute cat stuff! â™¥
Comment: Alisha - I loved your owl ATC and also the extra goodies. My favorite is the lucky owl, which is now sitting on the shelf in my office. I hope he is bringing me some good luck. Wonderful ATC - it has gone straight to my display holder in my office.
Thank you so much!
Response: Thanks so much - I'm glad you liked the ATC. The lucky owl came from the Japanese store in Disney World - I hope he brings you good luck for a long time to come. :D
Comment: WOW this was the most fantastic swap i have received!! you put so much thought and care into every single thing. I love the atc you made, the little name hanger was to die for and i love the little Pisces thing you made for me. i loved it all i cant even write it all out. everything was individually wrapped. When they gave me the big pink box at the post office i was sooo excited thank you sooo much you are truley a great person to have here on swap-bot!!
Response: Jessi - I am so incredibly glad you liked everything! I had such a great time trying to think of things that would make you go "neat!" and brighten your day a little. The pink box with flowers seemed so right for this swap (speaking of which, I almost forgot to add the "island/tropical themed" item!) I was having too much fun with the other stuff :D. Thanks for the great comment - I'm really happy you're pleased with it!
Comment: Thank you so much for the beautiful package!!! Everything was so adorable and wonderful. Your ATC that you made me is so awesome!! I love it!! And all of the extras will be so useful, i've used a few already!! So many cute details like my name on the ATC envelope etc. Thank you also for your kind words in your note, that meant a lot. THANK YOU!!!!
Response: You're so welcome - thank you for taking the time to leave a wonderful rating. It is really nice to hear that you enjoyed everything - that makes my day!
Comment: Thank you for the cute card and the kind words. Thanks for checking out my flicker photos. Sounds like we have lots in common. I haven't read The Host yet but it's on my list, along with about 2,0000 other must read books.
Response: Lol - I sooo know what you mean - I have a large bookshelf and many boxes of books that I can't wait to read! Making fun stuff competes with my reading time, though! Someday... Thanks for the nice rating :D
Comment: Thanks for the fabulous card! I love how much thought you put into it, from the card to the Hello Kitty stickers :)
Response: Thanks so much - I love to put together packages with my swaps, but it's so much harder with naked PCs! It's quite the challenge to let your partner know that you were thinking of them :D. Thanks for the great rating and heart! â™¥
Comment: tyvm! the card is super cute and the extras were very nice too ^^. i did icecreamy/popsicle for another dessert card ^^ i love popsicles/icecream bars lol ^^
Response: I'm so glad you liked it. It was definitely one of my more "simple" (i.e. not totally cluttered) ATCs, but I was actually pretty happy with how it turned out just because the stamp itself was so darn cute! Thanks for the rating and the heart! â™¥
Comment: I loved your card thank you. My ATC buddy said you have a lovely smile and we agreed you look really friendly - which can be hard to convey in a photo. I have taken your advice about adding to my profile, I am new and didn't realise people actually read them! Anyway, thanks for being a great swap partner.
Response: Thanks so much - that's very sweet. I'm glad you added to your profile - almost everyone reads them, and you'll definitely get nicer packages that way! I hope we'll be partners again sometime soon! â™¥
Comment: Two hearts for you Alisha!! Thank you for the wonderful package you put together for me. I love everything you sent. You made my day! Everything I opened up was a surprise within itself. You did an excellent job. Thanks again. =)
Response: Thanks, Angela. I hope we will be swap partners again sometime! :D
Comment: You definitely deserve more hearts. I loved everything.... your address label... the extra beads (I had to look at them one by one).... did you make the paper ones? Love, love, loved it all. And everything about your ATC was wonderful. I'm going to use your envelope as a template as well... I learn so much from each swapper.... and the personal note was so appreciated. I hope our paths cross again. xo Denise
Response: I'm so glad you liked everything! I didn't make the beads - I received them in a swap, and when I read that you liked paper beads, I thought that I would share them. I've wanted to try it myself for quite a while though... I too learn much from other swappers - it's always fun to see what others come up with! Thanks so much for the nice comments and I look forward to when we will swap again! :D
Comment: Okay... 1 heart is not enough-I can say your package rendered me speechless and I even teared up. I opened it and it was one surprise after the next, I absolutely LOVE everything & was amazed how much you personalized the package just for me-and then you spoiled all my kids too!!! They were shocked!! They went through each item and were wowed one thing at a time! My kids appreciate everything, so when they saw care baggies, a personal note, and goodies for each one of them-they were all so excited. BTW-Caiden had no idea what was going on, but he was happy everyone else was so happy ;). Kapreece was beyond thrilled because she hasn't gotten to do a swap yet except friendship pins & so far has been flaked on-so she was sooo excited, she even brought her switch plate (& entire bag) in with us to a restaurant last night to show her Dad & just to stare at it. I seriously can't thank you enough-the thought was overwhelming and amazed me that someone would be so caring, generous and nice! Amazing doesn't even begin to cover it (as you can see, since I have written a novel)! I just wanted to let you know how much your kindness & generosity were appreciated! If I could, you would give you 10 hearts!!!!!
Response: Wow - thank you - that was exactly the kind of reaction I was hoping for :D! Trying to personalize a package is my favorite part of the swap I think. I love to craft things, but it's fun to try and put a smile on someone's face, and a great profile like yours definitely helps! Tell Kapreece I would love to do a private swap with her if she'd like - maybe a handmade Twilight item or whatever she would enjoy - and I promise not to flake on her!! Thanks again for the wonderful rating and I look forward to swapping with you again! â™¥
Comment: Thank you for this wonderful swap! It took a few seconds until I realised that the book is a bag *lol* And then there were even more surprises inside the bag... Here are some more hearts for you, this swap really deserves it <3 <3 <3 <3 <3
Response: You're so welcome - I'm so glad it made it alright - the only other thing I've send Int'l was a postcard :D. Thank you so much for the rating and extra hearts! â™¥
Comment: Wow! Thank you so much for the Awesome ATC and package. I loved everything you sent and it still makes me smile. The star bunny is just so dang cute :)
Response: Ohhh... that's awesome! I thought the star bunny turned out pretty cute - I wanted to try it anyway when I read about your star love :D. Thanks so much for the message too - I had fun with your swap! â™¥
Comment: Thank you so much for the AWESOME ATC's!! I love both of them. They're really great :) And it was so nice to add all the extras, I love everything!!!! You paid a ton of attention to my profile, thank you!!
Response: I'm so glad you liked them - the one was particularly fun because I probably won't run into anyone else with that in common again! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: I just loved all the awesome pictures, sorry I didn't rate you earlier. My husband had lost his father last week. So my mind was a little frazzled. Loved the lady bug items as well. A# 1 swapper.
Response: Thanks - it was my first swap, and a lot of fun :D. I'm sorry to hear about your family's loss - I empathize and am glad you have the support and good wishes of your fellow crafters â™¥
Comment: Oh my gosh, thank you so much for the MOUNTAIN of cool extras! And I love the cards too, of course - I like how you matched the lime green, purple, and red embellishments just right! :) The die cuts you sent are really neat - did you get those from a teaching supply place? I especially love the ones about 2.5" inches that are a plain color on both sides, those are gonna be super fun. â™¥
Response: Thanks Betsi - I liked they way they turned out too, and you're very welcome for the extras. I thought the plain cut outs in particular would be useful for your journaling. And yes, I purchased them at a teaching supply store. They are from Creative Teaching Press - you can buy them online (under die cuts). Thanks for the heart! â™¥
Comment: Thank you for the awesome postcard, I just love the moose (how do you say that plural,lol) So cute and thanks for the nice note!
Response: You're welcome ~ I love moose (although it's not a joy to get chased by one for sure!). I think they are in the "so ugly they're cute" category! And I like that their plural is the same as their singular - one less word to learn to spell. :D
Comment: You are such a â™¥sweetheartâ™¥ for sending me all you have sent. You work is so terrific. I love it all and was touched by the charm of me and the hampster, lol. That one is so cute. Thank you for everything you have sent and for reading my blog (which needs an update soon). You are a special person :)
Response: I'm glad you felt the good vibes :D. Thanks for the nice comment on the hamster charm - I had good intentions, but it's hard to do a real photo with shrink plastic, so... thanks for understanding that sometimes it's the thought that counts - ha, ha! I hope to cross paths with you again soon. â™¥â™¥â™¥
Comment: OH I AM SOOOO JEALOUS !! Visiting Alaska is a #1 goal of mine :) !!
Response: Don't give up on that goal! It's beautiful, no matter when you visit, and no matter where you go! The Denali in your user name made me think maybe you'd been here already... :D Thanks for the heart â™¥
Comment: OMG! Your envie was awsome. I love all of the stickers! It was as if you really knew me! You really read my profile and got a feel for me cause even the things not on my profile were right on the money! Thank you! (SMILE)
Response: That's so wonderful - it makes my day to know I chose some things to brighten your day! â™¥ Thanks for the heart!
