Comment: Ooo, I love rhubarb season - I was just out today shopping for plants. the garden store was out, so instead I might move two plants that aren't doing very well where they are. You have a lot of strawberries for being the "BlueberryLady". :) I was gonna suggest Gwen Martson's Liberated Quiltmaking to get you started, but it sounds like you're set for books and fabric; I can't help with no time! Happy Swapping!
Response: Thank you for the Heart and Great Comment...
Comment: Thanks for the 'chunk' and your note.
I grew up spending summers on Gram's farm. I got a lifetime's worth of being on my knees weeding by the age of eight. But, seriously... I never had any luck with veggies so I stick to flowering plants, for the butterflies and hummingbirds. I do love getting my hands in the soil.
Response: Thank you for the nice Comment and the Heart.. !! !
Comment: Hi Jean, I had a Yorkie whose name was Kayte (pronounced Katie). I had her for 13 years. She was a wonderful pet! I had to put her down in 2013. I still miss her. She is the pet I wrote about for this swap.

Response: So Glad you liked every thing...thank you for the Heart and message...

I will treasure it as I do our friendship :) Thank you for the nice note and I'm impressed you find time to read....I have read some of Wanda Brunstetter's Amish themed books...but the other authors you mentioned are new to me and sound very interesting. I like to see what authors others read and try to go by the library at least monthly to see what they have out on their "new arrivals" shelf..I have never heard about the group you mentioned to get "free" books in the mail....how wonderful that you can enjoy them and then pass along! Happy Easter...Charlene
Response: So glad you like the Book mark ! Thank you for the Heart from Your Heart to Mine..

Each one I make is different.
Comment: Jean...thank you for my beautiful bird art envie with sooooo many birds! Love it...I too used my mod podge on this swap and I hadn't played with it in years! I'm enjoying spending more time in my craft room and doing some different kinds of swaps! We do not get the Indigo Bunting here or the North East blue bird but I do think my times spent watching the birds helps de-stress me and there are so many spiritual applications watching them and being a part of how God provides for them...hopefully Spring arrives here soon and not just on the calendar...hugs, happy Easter and happy spring....Charlene

Comment: Please forgive me for the late rate. I thought I'd rated this swap (and another one). Eek! Thank you so much for the poems and all the extra goodies from your women's retreat. I'm placing some of them in my Faith Journal. Many hearts to you!
Response: Thank you for the Heart. I am glad the package reached you.. Smile ! !
Comment: Thank you for your great answers and the retreat items. I sure miss women's retreats. The church I attend doesn't have them for women, only for the men. I will be going to 2 women's events next month.
Comment: thank you for the package of green. your cake box packing was fun to open :) i know what you mean about finding green items--when you are looking for it, its no where to be found...but the scarf is my favorite :)
Response: Glad you liked the Scarf and the Package - Cake Boxes are sturdy..! ! Hugs for the Heart ! !
MULTIPLE hearts to you! What a great swap and I LOVE how clever your mailing box was! I am going to steal your idea in the future! I love the idea of re-using a brownie box; it is the perfect size! Thanks for the nice fabric and note card, but most of all the very **special** swap tags. It must have taken you ages to make all of those by hand! Can't wait to use them! Stay warm! Happy Swapping! Valerie
Response: You are so Welcome ! Thank you for the Heart ! ! I often save and Reuse Food Boxes to use as packages for sending out Swaps.. Glad you liked everything.. Did a little Decoupage with cut outs...! ! ! Loved making the Swap Cards...
Comment: Delighted that I was your partner for this swap...great to hear from you! Blessings to ya in 2016 and as you complete your goals.
Response: Thank You.... Glad the Card made it through our Wonderful Mail System.. Smile... sometimes it takes 2 weeks to go to a town near by that would take me 25 min to drive to.. yet I have gotten other items in the mail from states away and it only took 2 days... Happy January ! !
Comment: Thank you Jean! I am not going to open the inside packages until Christmas morning but I am so thrilled by the beautiful hand made stocking you created that I'm going to call this "extra special" right now! Have a very blessed Christmas!
Response: I think you can find that suede looking fabric in upholstery ? or did I find it on the shelf at Walmart or Joann ? Just found some in my stash when I was looking for something Else... Happy January ! !
Comment: Many thanks for the fun package you sent me. I really like the colors you used. I think putting a border around was genius. That was a tricky pattern for me, especially the edges. I love the blackcurrant tea you sent me. It's so cold at work right now, an old concrete building with no heat is not fun. I'm drinking tons of hot tea to keep functioning. The selection you sent is a Godsend. Many thanks. Oh, I am hereby donating my future green bean servings to you!!! Take care and Happy Swapping...
Response: Love Fresh Green Beans with Milk and Butter like my Grandma used to make... So I will gladly eat your Portions... :D

LOL! The crackers look yummy and made a fun Chunk! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: Thank You for the Heart-We just got back from a Long Weekend away, Hubby is out mowing Grass... I checked on the Berries -they are Growing, not ripe yet... We visited a BIG Flea Market on Friday...
Comment: Thank you for the sweet cloth & the little extras. I've tried to plant sunflowers several times, but the birds seem able to find them all before they sprout...
Response: Thank you for the Heart/rating. Try putting a old Window Screen over the area lifted up with some bricks or stones so the seeds can sprout up and the birds can't get at them.. then use old CDs tied with string and Hung over the area on Taller Wire hooks like the shepherds hooks or even wire coat hangers nailed to the top of some wood posts.. so they swing in the Wind... Smile..
Comment: A friend at work made some delicious rosemary scones. I graduated high school in lake charles. we didn't go to the gulf too much, but there were lots of chemical plants and casinos. It's an interesting town.their supposed to have developed an indie music scene there.thanks for the chunk.

Comment: We tried to grow blueberries in our yard, but for some reason we have no luck. My boyfriend has mowed down more bushes than I can count, and has forgotten to water twice as many as that. *smh*
Response: Might want to get soil tested. Blueberries like a more acid soil- we use Blueberry fertilizer and use sawdust for mulch. We didn't get them mulched this fall so will have more work this coming Spring. This coming year will have to fertilize sooner..
Comment: Thank you for everything! I have put up my little gift until Christmas. Thank you for the extras! I am so thrilled with the book! I have decided to read a story from it every day.

As to your questions about my sewing- I would absolutely love to learn to sew my son some shorts because, like yours, mine is tall and skinny so nothing bought ever fits right. But first I need to gain some skills. I'm currently looking for a class involving begginers skills. I have only made some placemats and a machine cover so far. I just set up my machine 2 weeks ago with my moms help. Hope to be sewing cute clothes soon! Thanks again for a very nice swap.

You and I will NEVER share pizza. ;) Oh, man, I can't stand barbeque sauce (my husband is rolling his eyes - he has had to hear about me hating BBQ sauce about 6 million times). Ham and pineapple - I'm with you...CREAM CHEESE? WHAT??!! WORLDS COLLIDE!! I would probably like French Bread pizza just fine, but I'm not sure I've ever had any.
Response: We used to get a Steak Pizza at local eatery... No Red Sauce. They used Thinly sliced Steak - grilled and put on the Rustic Crust with Cheese... Oh My it was so Good. I like Hickory Smoke BBQ sauce.. The French Bread Pizza is good and Crusty after baking... Have a Great Weekend... Thanks for The Rating and Heart...
Comment: Jean...THANK YOU so much for coming to play with me in the pumpkin patch :) I have already used the mini cupcake wrappers (a fun project and treat with my 3 year old granddaughter who is staying with me:). Love the pumpkin shaped crocheted dish scrubbie, the recipe cards and the AWESOME material. GREAT stuff!! Blessings...Charlene
Comment: What a great envelop of goodies! Love the dishcloth. Love the patterns - will make the acorn tonight. Can't wait to try the recipe. Loved reading the brochures and wishing I could visit the wineries! Thanks so much. This was extra special!
Comment: Thank you for the pretty homemade bookmark, the extra's to help me make some and share with my Bible Study group or myself. :P Wonderful verses you chose. The card is pretty too. God Bless You
Comment: Wow! What a wonderful package with so many fall goodies. What a pretty dishcloth you made. I might even smile when I do the dishes now LOL - I love the assortment of fall napkins. How pretty for modpodge projects and cardmaking. And, all the pretty papers, scriptures, felt and embellishments. Thank you for making this an extra special swap!
Response: Thank You.... it was fun especially to dig through my stash of Stuff. Always hoping that everything will suit the Person I send it to... I am headed off to work now. 6:43 AM
Comment: Hi! Love the pc and enjoyed your share! I have not read either of those books so will have to give them a try! Yes, the empty nest thing is very over-rated!! Do any of your kiddos live close? I worry mine will not - sigh! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: Oops! I did it again -- rated and forgot to save ratings! My apologies. I did enjoy learning about your name -- you raise one of my favorites foods! And I did open the attachment and look with envy -- blueberries do not do well in the desert. Thanks for sharing, and happy swapping!
Comment: Thanks for the postcard! Hope your faucet is working well :)
Response: Yes the other one was all corroded from our hard water and high iron content... You know the Rust marks where water drips and the screen was filled with rust and the water wasn't even coming out...
Comment: Thank you for the absolutely wonderful package!! Everything you made is so awesome and so perfect for me:) Thank you so much! I have not tried those teas yet so I'm looking forward to that. Thank you again and I hope you have a wonderful summer!
Response: Thank you and Glad you liked every thing... The Teas are Green teas with the extra flavors... I have herb teas but its in bags with no sealed wrapper ...You can use the pouch for what ever you want.... :D
Comment: Hi Jean, my huny put in a new faucet in my kitchen and it's amazing what a big difference a little think like that can make! We'll be going to Solon, OH to visit my in-laws and to meet our new nephew; he was a chunk himself: 8 lbs. 3 oz., 20 inches long . Thanks for the card!
Comment: WOW, thank you so much :-) I wasn't expecting that many bookmarks. Thank you for the prayer about friends. That's great that you are able to plant that much stuff in your garden, my parents planted peas, taters, and green beans. At least I reckon that's all unless they get the urge to plant something else :-) Thank you again for such beautiful bookmarks
Comment: I don't care HOW many dinners you have to go to--or how late you are---this Owl Bookmark was absolulely perfect!!I loved the button trim as well--but Mr.(or Ms?) Hoot Owl was beautiful! Fabric scrap--thx xoxo!! and enjoyed your letter very much too! Blessings and have awonderful week!
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful bookmark, I love it. Also the chain of beads looks so nice. And the fabrics you enclosed makes me so happy. :)) I give you a star but you deserve more than that. Big hug Laura
Comment: Oh My-I am SO glad I joined this swap. Your Banner is absolutely BEAUTIFUL-It is hanging to the doorway of my bedroom-everyone who comes will see it. Extra thanks for your letter â™¥â™¥ and the spaghetti squash seeds!!! How thoughtful of you. 100 â™¥â™¥â™¥ to you for the wonderful gifts I got from you in the mail today :)
Response: Glad you liked it - used your Favorite Green/pink and some hearts... :D it was a Fun and Different project... Never have planted the Spaghetti squash here before...just acorn, butternut and butter cup..and of Course Zucchini and yellow Squash..
Comment: Thanks for the Life cereal postcard. That's one of those cereals I never ate as kid. I still have my original Gateway computer, it's tucked away in a storage shed, and I can't bear to part with it.
Response: My husband eats life Cereal when its on sale.. I have to watch which ones I eat because of the Carbs...
Comment: You did a awesome job on the seeds and packets. I thought they were so cute. I thing these little packets make it easier if you want to save the seeds as well.Thanks for reminding me. I have been communicating since yesterday in the Hospital. They aren't sure what is wrong with the right side of my back. They are testing for Kidney stones. If it isn't that they think I might have pinched a nerve in my back near the kidney. That is what I get for going to the Gym. LoL
Comment: Your chunk O Card Board was wonderful! I loved that we have a lot in common. Oh dog is named Nikki and she can't count all she thinks about is fetch. I laughed when I read your husband cooks large amounts because I do that too =) Thank you for your great postcard =)
Comment: Thank you for the lovely pc! Somerset is very close to Johnstown! Just a hop, skip and jump down the road! I can't wait to garden either! Have you seen the new series of ny ink yet? If not you should totally check it out! Love that stuff!
Comment: Such nice recipes Jean. I never would have thought of pumpkin in a chili. Have to try it. Love scones and love salads, so thank you very much! Very cute note card, and boy ..you live in the middle of nowhere! Do you have great sunsets? You must have so many birds! That would be wonderful. :o)
Comment: Jean ~ thank you so much!! I can't believe how much we have in common. I thoroughly enjoyed your letter. Thank you for the tags! Now you have to tell me why you are called the BlueberryLady?
Response: I got the Idea for "Blueberry Lady" because we have 30 Blueberry Bushes .... They were just starting into production last year, the bushes were loaded and when we had the Dry spell we chose to water the Veg Garden.. we also have Strawberries, Thornless Black berries, 2 Grape vines, Elderberries, and Asparagus, Apple trees and 2 hazelnut Bushes....My gold and Purple Raspberries dried up last Summer too.. even though we Watered as much as we could with extra well and the Rain barrels .... I guess I should put that in my Profile... :^)
Comment: Jean...Love your "hearts are like quilts" card :) Thank you for the beautiful card and the wonderful note!! I really enjoyed this swap...such a wonderrful way to use our paper scraps:) Blessings...Charlene
Comment: Thank you for your lovely "Patched Hearts are Stitched w/Love" card. Fun idea to add the stitching! How nice of you to make your son waffles for breakfast when he arrived at your house. With his donuts, it was a grand morning feast :)
Comment: Love the zippers...I need them for a couple projects--making a purse from zippers & a scissor cozy from zippers. And the turtle swap cards are so cute. You always know what to send me in swaps! It's 85 degress and windy today!! HUGS!
Response: I started a notebook to help me remember what I have sent to my swap partners... so I don't send Repeats... :D Glad you liked the Turtle Cards... I try to think of something different to send... Thank you we had sunshine here today but still chilly..

Response: Thank you.... I hate to use dishcloths I get because they are so pretty .... but useful. I will have to get down your way some day... Surprising living so close... Have a Great Day and Thanks for the Heart....Thought you could use the Doggie Cards for Swap cards if your little Boy doesn't get to them first.. :D
Comment: This was such a lovely surprise! I hope the bookmarks you receive from your partners are as nice as the one you sent me! Thank you for the recipe too, it sounds good! I know what you mean about cooking for husbands, sigh. Mine is the same way. Sometimes I have to make two different meals, one for him and one for me, or else just make a big pot of vegetable soup and eat it all week. Thank you!
Response: Thank You for Compliment about the Book mark I made you out of the Veggie Fabric. I thought That would Brighten Your Reading Day... :D
Comment: Hi Jean !! I so hear you about being organized for the New Year - Over Christmas I got my craft room righted (I'm a teacher and had a chunk of time off) but it gradually gets that lived-in look again :-( And yes: I LOVE birds! Thanks for a great swap and a keeper-bookmark! I hope you had a wonderful holiday celebration with your son and future daughter-in-law!
Comment: Thank you! I have dried flowers and ferns! being an organ donor is different from being a bone marrow donor. Marrow or peripheral stem cell donation is done while you're living. Click the link on my profile for more info.

Comment: Jean...LOVE the layered trees, snowflakes and clouds and really enjoyed your note sharing your tree "collectible" decorations:) Our tree is the same. We call it the memory tree and the grandchildren have started making yearly ornaments to add to the memories for each following year so including the star on top that my Mama gave me we have 4 generations of memories on the tree now. How nice that Zach is starting his own collection. Hope he stays warm up in NY. Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones....Charlene

Comment: I loved your blue envelope with blue goodies inside. I enjoyed reading your note and now I know why you chose "BlueberryLady" - 30 plants - wow! We love blueberries and eat them year-round. Good for you for having a big garden. They're lots of work, but worth it when you can go outside and pick your own fresh vegetables!

Response: Jefferson Ohio is the County Seat of Ashtabula County, top right hand corner of Ohio home of the Covered Bridge Festival in October....
Comment: Thanks so much for all the work you put into my hotpad, doily and all the extras. The cake sounds really good but I don't think I've used a cup of shortening in the last 10 years so that seems like an awful lot for one cake.
Response: Try recipe with 1/2 the shortening... and the Doily you could use at the sink in kitchen or bathroom or in the Tub...Glad you package got there OK.... thanks for the Rating and Heart....

Comment: Thanks for your letter. =) Yes, we have a garden as well. We are trying our hand at blueberries this year, but not sure they're working out.
Response: Blueberries take couple years to really get going, mulch with 3 to 4 inches deep of Sawdust or other mulch, They might need watered.... Our are just coming into production... I have my bushes covered with Nylon net to keep birds off... Will buy better netting next year.....
Comment: Oh my gosh...what a great package and I love the pictures of your garden.....fantastic...and amazing how you and your husband maintain all of that....Thank you for the extras....LOVE the recipes...very excited ;-)
Comment: Thank you for the dishcloth and other items. Also for the nice note. I miss being in the farmland now. Here we don't even have a farmstand.- no fresh home grown fruits and vegetable. Really miss the apple, pear and peach orchards. Shirley
Comment: Thank you for the gorgeous postcard. I think it's really neat that you actually live close to the bridge. I absolutely love covered bridges. There's a beautiful one out on the farm near where my grandmother lived as a girl. It's been a long time but when I DO make it that way it's always something I want to stop and look at.
Thank you again!!! Rachel
Comment: Hi :) Thank you for your recommendations! They're not what I normally read, but I'll try to find some of the books you've mentioned. Just because you don't read it now, it doesn't mean you won't like it, right? Happy swapping!
