Comment: Thank you for sharing your experience! I've found that most things don't go "according to plan" when it comes to raising a baby too...lol! But your little boy is happy and healthy, so whatever you have done is just great :)
Response: Glad you enjoyed it. Things are going really well with him. He is certainly amazing. :) Thanks for rating.
Comment: You have so many awesome pins/boards. I'm now following you. =-) I especially liked your Halloween Costume Ideas Pin and the 40 Bags in 40 Days......and of course the ones with the kittens. Love my cats!!
Thanks for sharing!
Response: I am so glad you enjoyed my pins. Thanks so much for the rating and the heart.
Comment: Had an issue, we resolved it. Hopefully this won't happen again.
Response: I just messaged you on swap-bot with the link. This was sent out long before it was due and since you also rated another member of this swap a 1 I am going to guess that the emails went to your spam folder. In the future it would be great if you could send a message to me if you don't receive something as I always send. Thanks.
Comment: Thanks for sharing! :) I loved the picture with the chalkboard wall. If we will have our own house when our children are still young (maybe we won't, since we are very young ourselves), I would love them to have a chalkboard wall to draw in. Right now it is not possible, because you can't do changes like that to rental apartments :( But if we are ''too late'', our grandchildren can enjoy one ;)
Response: I hope you are able to do it with your kids. I really want to do it for my son's room when he is older. I thin k it would be so much fun for him. Thanks for the rating and the heart.
Comment: Wow! Thanks for sharing your Dream House with me! I see your dream home being very clean, pristine, white, and super organized!!! I love it! (Most likely because I have OCD!) Thank you for sharing! Goo luck with your own home renovations!
Response: Thanks so much. I am a clean freak so it is driving me crazy right now to have all these boxes and things scattered about while I get rid of things. Hopefully it will all come together soon. Thanks for the rating and the heart.
Comment: Thank you for the great pins! I especially liked the LEGO Alice and Mad Hatter, the Alice teapot with her head as the cup, and the costume where the little girl is Alice stuck in the White Rabbit's house. I might have to repin a few if that's ok.
Response: Absolutely! I am so glad that you liked my pins. :) Thanks for the rating and the heart.
Comment: Thank you for the ATC chock full of cabochons! :-D They are all adorable, but I especially love the owl in the middle! Thanks also for the great cabochons you sent along! I will put them to good use :-)
Response: So glad you liked it. :) Thanks for the rating and the heart.
Comment: Thanks so much for the kawaii... I love those HK baggies too I cant ever find them so I really like when I get them in swaps...
Response: I am so glad that you enjoyed it all. I love those baggies too I always get them in swaps and then re-use them to send to others. I hate to let them go but I have to stop collecting things. LOL Thanks for the rating and the heart.
Comment: My daughter loved the magazines and stickers!!
Response: I am so happy that she did. I was trying to find things I thought she would like and when I was browsing for a cookie magazine I saw that and thought perfect! Thanks for the rating and the heart.
Comment: Very nice - I keep hearing about Deco tape, but have never seen it in stores around me - I can see why you love it so much! Thank you
Response: I am glad you liked it. It is just so much fun to decorate letters and envelopes with. I am constantly looking for more. Most of mine I got in swaps or ordered online. Thanks for the rating and the heart.
Comment: That is some bush, lol...!!! Thank you so much, I love it!!! <3
Response: LOL, I thought you might. Like I said I couldn't do much with it and take away from the bush. However it would probably take a weed whacker to take away from that bush. LOL Thanks for the rating and the heart.
I'm truly sorry for your loss Thank you for sharing your story & the pictures you shared were some adorable candles..
I was in the same boat as you with finding out there was no heart beat I was in shock & couldn't understand. I wish you & your husband nothing but the best & may god bless you with a little miracle baby.
Response: Thanks so much. I really appreciate your kind words. I wish the same for you and your family as well. I still have hope. I know God has a plan for us and I know a baby is definitely in it. :) Thanks for the rating and the heart.
Comment: What an awesome card- I LOVE it! Just a note- make sure you bubble wrap if you have doodads on it- the bead punched a hole all the way through the envie but was still attached. THANKS!!
Response: Thanks for letting me know. I thought about it before I put it in and then forgot when I was trying to get them out. I am so glad that you liked it. I had lots of fun with that one. :) Thanks for the rating and the heart.
Comment: Thanks for the great ATC, I love how you mixed the fonts of your letters, so cute! I had the same problem as far as having things printed out, so I just drew it :P
Response: I'm glad you liked it. I actually found out that at Staples they will print at their desecration. The guy I talked to told me that he will pretty much print out anything as long as it isn't illegal. That should make for a better time on the next ones. :) Thanks for the rating and the heart.
Comment: Thank you for becoming the most challenging thing of all. . . a mommy!
Response: Thanks for being so wonderful I really appreciate it. Even though it didn't work out for us this time around I am sure it will soon. Thanks for the rating and the heart. This ATC will be on it's way to you this week.
Comment: Yummy yummy...candy! This baggie will be great for 'girls night in' that a friend & I have couple times a month--simple supper & then watch a movie from Netflex...and we always NEED candy when watching the movie! Thanks so much...take care of yourself. HUGS!
Response: I am so glad you enjoyed the candy. I hope none of it melted while it was at the Police Station. Hugs to you! Thanks for the rating and the heart.
Comment: Great interpretation of the theme, but I wish it showed a little more effort.
Response: I rather enjoyed the ATC as I am still fairly new to them I feel I did a nice job. I had that song in mind the whole time and thought the embellishments suited it quite well. Thanks for rating!
Comment: Thanks Lori!! Lily's packages arrived safely!! Just like a true hunt it took a while! :P She loves her outfit, however the lati's have stolen the corduory skirt. She's found all her easter goodies and her basket is overflowing!
Response: I am so glad that it all finally arrived. Glad I picked an outfit that was for more than just Easter. LOL I hope it makes up for the mistake when they first package arrived. I told you more was coming. LOL Thanks for the rating and the heart.
Comment: I LOVE Hells Kitchen too! I actually watched an episode today! The American version is okay, but I like the British version because they don't bleep out his cussing! I love Gordon Ramsay. Happy Swapping!
Response: I love Gordon Ramsey. He is so awesome. We have watched all the shows he has done so far. I really like Kitchen Nightmares, and also The F Word. Thanks for the rating and the heart.
Comment: Thank you for all the cute stationary and stickers! I usually look for the more art (less craft) supplies, but I think you did a great job making a package that fit the requirements of the swap. The japanese-style Alice stationary was really cool! Thank you!
Response: I am so glad you enjoyed everything. It was harder than I thought to find things to go in it but I was pretty happy with the things I came up with. Thanks for the rating and the heart.

Response: I agree. I adore my kitties. I always have my mom send me pictures of Tink. She wasn't thrilled when I put the outfit on her and there was a definite look of defeat in her eyes but it was too cute. Especially when she was trying to get the pompoms off her feet. LOL Thanks for the rating and the heart.
Comment: I love the little mouse! Thanks for the batteries!! This definitely looks amazing and I look forward to good times!!
Response: AWESOME! Wow that got there fast. When I saw him I thought he was adorable and would be perfect for the theme. I had to add the batteries I didn't want it to be like Christmas as a kid when you opened a cool toy and realized you couldn't play cause the batteries weren't included. :) Thanks for the rating and the heart.
Comment: Oh my, i really loved the links.. i havent checked them all out yet, but all of which i took a peek at were really fun. I now remembered, i once used my facebook status for prompts. I had a Question a Day theme.. its always so much fun.. :) Thanks so much for all the links..

Response: It's such a great movie. I think Patrick Swayze was every teen girls fantasy back when it came out and even now when people see it for the first time. I was so sad when he passed away. Thanks for the rating and the heart.
Comment: Thanks so much for the fun packets! A pretty little dress and a big stash of candy!! YUM!!!! :)
Response: I am so glad that you got it and enjoyed it. I am sorry the second part got there so late. I really should watch my swaps when I am going to be away. :) Thanks for the rating and the heart. :)
Comment: Thank you for the cute items. The reason I am not giving a heart is you sent me lavender lotion that I have listed as an allergy on my profile :(
Response: Oh wow, I am so sorry about that. I was on vacation when I bought the items and I was relying on my mom's phone for internet access so it was really hard to access the pages. I spent an hour just trying to get to the swap page. I usually check profiles like crazy to make sure there are no allergies. I am really sorry about it and totally understand why you didn't give a heart. I even sent extra Hello Kitty stickers as a bonus. LOL. Take Care.
Comment: Thanks so much for this lovely swap. I just love it all, can't say what I like best but it was great to receive it :0 And also a big thank you for angeling one of my flaked swaps, that was just so sweet!
Response: No problem. I am glad that it got to you. Thanks for the rating and the heart. :)
Comment: Sorry love, I didn't mean to take so long rating you. I had just forgot that emailing you was even a swap. I loved having you as a partner and can't wait to see what the year brings for both of us! :-)
Response: That's no problem. I really enjoy the friendship we have formed and I look forward to continuing it. You were an awesome partner on this swap. Thanks for the rating and the heart.
Comment: Yay it arrived yesterday thank you so much I love the hair clips soup cute, well worth the wait xx
Response: I am sooooooo happy that you got it. Wow did it ever take forever. Was this the package from etsy? or the original package that I sent you? If it was from etsy there should be two phone charms, the hair clips and also a necklace. This way I can rate the etsy seller if I know it was that one. Thanks for the rating and the heart. Thanks also for being so patient. It took forever. LOL
Comment: i think you really love hello kitty! lol ^__^ i loved the vibrant red theme you put in your set *__* and the lingerie! oh wow *-* its very pretty! thanks for sharing your set with me, honey ^^ Happy new year!!

Comment: Really enjoyed the pictures of your Blythe! I especially love the photos with the autumn leaves and also the one in the snow. I live in Hawaii, so we don't have snow or changing leaves...I guess I could always take my Pullips to the beach...
Anyway, your Blythe is adorable. Thanks for sharing the photos with me. :)
Response: I am so glad that you enjoyed them. I love taking pics of her in the different seasons. Although there have only been two since I got her. LOL I would love to see pics of your dolls on the beach sometime. Thanks so much for the rating and the heart.

Comment: swap finally arrived. thank you for the lovely items you picked for me and for your support to make me get it.
Response: No problem. I am glad it finally got there. I have never had a package take this long and all three of the packages I mailed that day have been quite delayed. I am happy it finally arrived. Thanks for rating.
Comment: I received your package today, thank you so much for this awsome swap, I love everything! The cupcake pouch and the socks are my favs, they even smell like strawberry, so cool! And thank you for the mystery pouch as well! :)

Comment: Well I just have to say... I LOVE YOU I LOVE YOU I LOVE YOU I LOVE YOU!!!! You are the BESTEST! You sent me my favorite things! did I mention that I love you?
Response: lol, I think you mentioned that somewhere. I am so glad that you liked them. I had fun finding things that I thought you would like. I love when I can send kinda obscure stuff to people. It makes me feel good. Thanks for the rating and the heart.
Comment: Thank you! It's so cute! I love the key topper too :)
Response: I am so glad you liked them. I loved the little teddy-bear with the heart on his tummy. When I saw the key topper I just had to get it to go along with him. Thanks for the rating and the heart.
Comment: Thanks for your log - I'm so glad you actually laugted out loud at Midsummer Night's Dream -- keep reading Shakespeare, there's so much to enjoy! I feel SO old when you mentioned reaing The Secret Garden; it was the first movie I ever saw that had technicolor in it -- about 400 years ago -- well, a lot more than 40.
Response: LOL, I totally loved The Secret Garden. I still haven't watched the film though. I have always loved Shakespeare. I started reading it when I was about 5. I absolutely adore him. One of my favorites that I have read over and over again would have to be Julius Caesar. I love that one. Thanks for the rating.
Comment: I loved your answers!!! thats the kinda houses I wanna see. But I didnt really like Halloween 2 the Zombie one atleast. It was to Gross because I dont like gore much. But I apreciate 1000 corpses and love the Devils Rejects.
Response: First of all thanks for the rating and the heart. :) I tend to enjoy gore a bit. I like to get all freaked out and have to close my eyes. In fact sometimes the gorier the better. LOL However I do love the Saw films and I find them more thrilling than gory.
Comment: Thanks for the reading log! I didn't like Twilight or Breaking Dawn but New Moon and Eclipse weren't bad.
Response: I wasn't even going to attempt reading the series cause I wasn't interested but then my sister bought Twilight for me for my birthday and once I got past the first chapter I was hooked. Thanks for the rating.
Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful socks! I absolutely love them. Hopefully we can swap again soon! :]
Response: I am so glad you liked them. I got them at one of my absolute favorite stores. When I saw that you liked colorful ankle socks I knew exactly where I was going shopping for you. Thanks for the rating and the heart. You rock!
Comment: Wow, this was a let down. I am glad you enjoyed what you received from me, which took hours of time and careful perusal of your profile & websites.
Response: I am sorry you thought it was a let down. I saw that you liked tea and that was pretty much all that you had listed on your profile that I could go by. To save you from any embarrassment I will email you.
Comment: Thank you for the cute fabric! I love it so, so much. It's going to be one of my favorite squares in my quilt. Thank you again for swapping with me. :)
Response: I am glad you got it and like it. I tried to cut a larger piece so you could trim it up nicely for your quilt. I hope you post pics when you are done I would love to see it. Thanks for the rating and the heart.
Comment: I would totally put that sign up! And I would love to see your zombie rock band pics!
Response: I will dig them up and send you some later on. I think they are on my desk top computer so I will find them. I also think I am going to put that sign up. If they don't put in the effort why should they be rewarded? lol Thanks for the rating and the heart.
Comment: I just webcamed with my sister and she showed me the lolli & My melody pins! Thanks for sending them & everything else was so lovely! Great swap, thanks Lori! ♥
Response: YAY! I am glad you liked them. The lolli didn't turn out as well as I would have liked but I couldn't come up with another handmade lolli idea. lol. I was hoping the My Melody would make up for it. :) Thanks for the rating and the heart.
Comment: Thank you so much for the package. It was worth waiting! I looooove so much the notepeds........it is such a beauty I love it! love it! love it!. I already tried the koolaid (strawberry), and it's very refreshing (summer here is so hot.....) Thank you very much again!

Comment: I LOVE your bangs!! :) and your hubby makes enuf $$ for both of you? how perfect!! Thanks for sharing, it was nice to learn about you.
Response: Thanks. I love the bangs too. It turned out really well. Yeah my hubby works for the government so he has job stability and gets raises on a regular basis. We are lucky. I have lots of friends who are struggling right now because of the economy. Thanks for rating.
Comment: WONDERFUL Swap!!! Thank you soooo much for everything - esp the Hello Kitty Bento Box - how cute and useful!!! Love the doggie bone for the doggies, kitchen stuff, bag and candy! Thanks for putting a lot of thought into my swap :)

Response: lol, I am glad I could help you out. I have been downloading the songs from all the episodes cause I love the music. Thanks for the rating and the heart. :)
Response: I am so glad you got them. I have been really worried that they wouldn't make it. You will have to let me know what you think of the peeps. I hope you enjoy them. Thanks for the rating and the heart.
Comment: wow, I'd hate to be allergic to cranberries and grapes.
Response: It is mostly only the juice. I can and do eat grapes like crazy with no issues, I love baking homemade oatmeal cookies with dried cranberries in them and never have any problems, The juice however gives me headaches every time. Thanks for the rating.
Comment: Loved your answers, Lori. Glad you're in such a good place personally now. That's always a good place to be. Also love that you and your husband go back to bed to relax, eat pizza and watch movies. What a great day!! You answered well and I feel like I got to know you a bit! I'd give you two hearts if I could. Thanks! By the way, has your last name changed? Foroy or Harper?
Response: My last name is Furoy now. I use Harper for my swaps. I am so glad you enjoyed my answers. Thanks for the comments. I really enjoy relaxing with my hubby and watching movies. I think spending so much time together doing that kind of thing is what makes us like newlyweds after almost 11 years together and over 9 years of marriage. :) Thanks for the rating and the heart.
Comment: Lori - your answers are great and please don't put me on you "hate" list but the midgets really had me laughing!!
Response: lol, thanks for the rating. To be perfectly honest. I actually locked the door of my car when we pulled up next to one waiting for the bus. They just really get to me. God bless their little hearts cause it isn't their fault. Just one of those things I guess. :)
Comment: Amazing lists. I caught myself saying "Oh I forgot that one!" I totally agree w/ on the point you made on your last list of 10 "I don't use bathrooms at all in public." (shivers) Have a great weekend!
Response: Yeah public bathrooms are my total fear. lol Thanks for the rating.
Comment: I totally forgot about Amazing Race! YES! I have been watching it since the very first show. Excellent show - I have always wanted to be on it. That it THE reality show to beat all reality shows!
Response: I love The Amazing Race. Thanks for the rating.
Comment: I have a scar on my pinkie toe where one of my cousins bit me as a baby!
Response: lol. Thanks for sharing now if we ever meet and I see it I will know where you got it. :)
My husbands ex-workmate's wife had a big scar across her cheek and I always wondered where she got it. My husband wouldn't ask or let me so I just made up a story in my head that she got it in a knife fight. LOL
