Comment: Hej Karen,
Received your note. Will write soon.
I have never thought to use salsa on spaghetti...will have to give that a try. Now that you have me thinking about it...it does some rather appealing.
Comment: I've had your letter for several days thinking it was a pen pal letter and didn't realize it was for a swap until I finished writing you and saw the swap at the very bottom of the page. I'll go ahead and send the letter. I enjoyed your letter and can't imagine tent camping with the tent on top of the car. I hope you get to take a camping trip while the weather is cool.
Comment: Thank your Karen for the random goodies, i am excited about the pink price tag (I know it's silly, but I have been wanting one to play with and alter) 😜 And I am working on a special journal for someone special that LOVE pink!
Comment: Thank you for the very nice letter Karen! I honestly didn't mean to hold up my rating so long, but I had somehow put your letter in a folder I carry back and forth to work. I moved some papers in it this morning and found your letter! I apologize! I would love to write back to you and hope to do so within the next week or so!
Comment: I enjoyed your note card. I am hoping for a few more snowstorms before spring comes...but right now it is raining alot. ugh...
Enjoy your week. We've grown lots of veggies and canned them. ive not canned recently as life has gotten crazy.
Comment: Merry Christmas Karen! Thank you for such a pretty card. The Heart is for writing a wonderful note, about your family gathering for Christmas. We have a huge family on my mom's side and I have 5 children, one of which lives here. But the 4 oldest will be here the 23rd with their children. I'm so glad I have a big house!
Comment: Can't wait to try the tea, thanks! I have never received this flavor before. In your note you talk about needing some fall decorations. I've actually gotten some through swaps & I know I won't use them, would you want to do a private swap for them? PM me if so :) Happy Fall!

Comment: thank you for ypur noce letter. my daughter also loves cookbooks. i understand going to the store alot to keep fridge full. i say it is a love / hate relationship with electronics!! Right now my printer broke and it is a pain going to the library to make copies. i love the library and love spending time there...just not to make copies. happy yard sale ing
Comment: Thank you for the coffee/tea stickers! My Dollar Tree only had one set, so now I can keep one for me and create some projects to share with the other one. Lol, I had to smile when I got 3 swap partners with the first name of Karen, being sure to rate the right one. :) Have a great day!

Comment: Thank you for the nice note and the postcards! I remember the days when you could find postcards everywhere. Now, I order them online or go to the down town bookstore. Those are the only places I know of that sell them around here :(
Comment: Hi Karen! The notecard is beautiful! I know what you mean - I am so ready for Spring right now. Good luck with your planting. It sounds like you'll have a beautiful garden and plenty of hummingbirds who will come and admire it. Thank you for the stickers and tags too. I love to use them in my journals!
Comment: I enjoyed reading your letter. This has been a great swap. I really thought that the 10 partners was a misprint but I am glad that I joined. It is nice to get all of the mail. Thanks for the heart stickers!!!
Comment: Hi Karen! Your swap arrived tonight and it was so marvelous to receive your friendly kind note! I loved seeing the Eiffel Tower on the front of the note. As i looked at it it took me back to a memory that i had from the past and it was a beautiful memory! Glad to hear that you love to travel adn yes i do think that you should just make a little statement on your profile to let others know....dont forget what you love! Maybe someone will.tell you one of their great all time travel stories! So glad that you went to Hawaii and experienced the gentle beauty there. Thank you Karen for taking the time to write such a kind heartfelt letter and write to someone you did not know. I so appreciated it! Thank you for the gift that you included too! These gifts can be used in creating more works of art!
Comment: Karen...Bummer you are having computer problems...I hope they get fixed soon. I did let the swap host know that you sent by the deadline and she is also the group founder so all is GOOD!! I enjoyed your note and loved the note card. Our weather has been super strange too..I had snow last week!!!! Thanks for the swap and happy Memorial Day....Charlene

Comment: Hello, I can so understand it is so hard.. I love chocolate. but water does get old so i have started adding lemon juice to it or drinking warm water with lemon juice, I actually gained 4 pounds on cruise but that isn't as bad as it sounds,., all you do is eat. I usually walk alot on cruise but mother didnt seem up to the walking, I am hoping to get back on track.. I need to lose about 100 because i eat too much and sit way to much,

Comment: Thanks for the letter and the fun stuff you included for the swap! My favorite was the butterfly papers. I think I'll be making a postcard with them. My dog is definitely obsessed with treats also.
