Comment: hi Cheryl, so funny that we live near each other.

Happy Halloween :)
Response: So glad you like it. Thanks for the heart and keep in touch, since we are so close! I get out there quite a bit. You know, the outlet's & all? lol
Comment: This is a lovely card; I wish the USPS would make pc's from images of every stamp issue (preferably 4x6 format), then have them available at every branch. In our minuscule corner of the world it's even hard to get stamps that aren't "the norm". I wish you a spa day - someday. I miss being able to go ...
Response: Thank you very much for the heart and the kind words. You should try ordering stamps online at USPS.com! They have a lot of choices! Good luck!
Comment: Cheryl!!!! OMG, I absolutely LOVE my package (in more than one way...on the package word:P) Everything is inspiring!! I will use everything!!! I finally got my dilly dong straw!!! I've wanted one for ages, lol!!! I can't say thanks enough for all the goodies you sent! Thank you!!!

Response: Cathy, your email and your rating are much appreciated! Thank you so much for the heart and your kind words! Since there are still more letters, hopefully we'll "see" more of each other!
Comment: Thanks so much for the goodies for my car! I certainly can use the tire gauge...just got new tires so I need to keep them properly inflated. I tend to get lost so the compass is just right! And I love to have air freshners in the car and the one that hangs on the vent is clever. I'll keep the wipes in the car.
Response: Glad you like it all, great swap idea! Thanks for the heart
Comment: This was a fun swap! When I took the box out of the mailbox, I thought it was the one I sent and returned to me because I used a Brown Sugar box, too! ha ha
Well I absolutely loved everything in there with all the purple and ribbons. A purple button magnet - cool! The postcards and ephemera are outstanding.

I really like the closure you did,too. And you put coins in it! :D
Response: I know, I laughed too when I saw the tape you used! :) As for the coins, it's an old "wvestale" that you should never give a purse/wallet to anyone without even $1.00 in it. Suppose to make it so it"s always full. lol.....thanks for the swap & the heart!!
Comment: Wow! I feel like you really put time into this. Great job!!!! And I feel like you kind of went all out even, adding pages and stickers and mailing in a priority box.

Comment: Hello Cheryl,
Thank you for the two easel cards you made for me. I love the colors, of course. I like, as well, that I can keep the cards or I can give them away--that was extremely thoughtful of you. I appreciate your note you sent along with the cards as well. I do live a challenged life, but I love doing my crafts and I am happy that others like what I do. For now, I am going to display the cards and enjoy reading them each day. Hope we can continue to have opportunities to swap with one another. Until we meet up again, Happy Swapping!!!
Response: Glad you liked them. Stay well and upbeat! See you soon in the swapping world!
Comment: Great package! I really got a kick out of the wall hanging. I've never actually seen "Beach Blanket Bingo" (though it's on my list of movies I would like to see!), but I love that imagery, and really love how you incorporated my name into a bingo card! :) The starfish is lovely, too. Don't worry about "misinterpreting" the swap; I love what you sent! :) UPDATE 8/30 OMG you are so sweet to send an extra package! You totally didn't have to, but I love everything you sent! The blanket will come in handy for fall picnics, and the palm tree paper is great-- I just got back from Costa Rica, and if I ever get around to organizing my pictures into a scrapbook, that paper will be perfect! LOVE the black sand-- I actually collect sand from different places, and didn't have any from Hawaii yet, so thanks! :) You really went above and beyond, Cheryl! :)
Response: Phew! I was so worried, and I did send another package anyway. Don't worry, it's not a big deal! Let me know in an email when you get it. thanks for the heart and really glad you like it!

Comment: Hi... Good to hear from you. I love the interesting card of Los Angeles City! Your rainy day ideas sound like great fun. Bet you pray for rain sometimes! ha,ha
Since I was a kid, I have loved watching lightening, too. My father used to sit on the front porch with us kids, and sometimes Mama would join us, and we would ooh and ahh over the brilliant lightening bolts and claps of window rattling thunder. That was in Georgia where we really had some fierce rain and lightening storms, usually at night. See you around! ~Gail

Thanks for the heart!

Comment: Thank you for everything! I loved it all, especially the Illinois badge, how neat!!! Can't wait to use some of the little baubles I'm so excited!

Comment: Hi Cheryl, thanks so much for the great coffee. I love the tin & magnet too but the PC's are too funny, especially the "ad" card. Maybe it shoud read Bitch left Chicago, HAHAHA Thanks and many hugs, Karyn

Comment: Hi Cheryl! We don't snow either here in San Antonio, Tx. My students are always asking when it will snow and as a science teacher I go into my lecture of the atmospheric conditions that we need. I feel like it's my fault most of the time. How silly! Thanks for the postcard. Have a great day:)
Response: Oh you poor thing, I'd hate to have to explain that. But you could show pictures of the BAD,like kids shoveling snow. That would fix 'em! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: thank you SO much - you did a WONDERFUL job of picking things for me - I had no clue that wine journals existed, and had just been jotting things down and trying to keep track. This will help so much, and I'm looking forward to seeing what new crockpot recipes I can try :)
Response: Glad you liked it all. I'm SO glad you can use the wine journal, there so much fun! When you go wine tasting, ask for labels! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: WOW!!! This is my first swap and I can say that I cannot expect this type of package from everyone. I truly believe that CrazyPurpleLady really looked into my profile to make my package truly unique. Loved every thing... ESPECIALLY the brunette chip chat, I cant wait to use it!!!! Thank you so much for your effort, I will definitely be thinking of my reaction when I send my package out. Thanks for making me want to make someone else just as happy!!! Have a blessed day, C.
Response: wooo, thank you so much for your rating & message. Yes, I do try to go by profile, even in a postcard swap! I think it makes it more personal & fun! Thanks for the heart!!!
Comment: Thanks for the cupcake kit. I love some of the sprinkles you sent along. i can't wait to use the pearls - I've never seen them before. I didn't mind the gold at all, it worked really well with your design... maybe I should update my profile... gold jewelry. Thanks for the kit!!
Response: Whoo hoo, so glad you like it all! I was worried. Happy baking!! Hapypy new year and thanks for the heart
Comment: Thanks for a nice swap. The little angel doll is adorable. I have some of my mom's dolls (since she passed away this year) and this doll will fit right in with them as they are all winter/snow dolls. And thanks for the Lindt chocolate too. I love them. YUM And the extra fibers are great. I can always use them. Thanks.
Response: Glad you like it all. I love my mom memories too! Thanks for the heart.
Comment: I LOVE the items you sent! The windshield screen will come in handy in a couple months when the heat seeps back into San Jose. : ) I hadn't been by my sisters house to pick up mail in about 2 weeks, so the awesome roomy pink tote was put to work the night I opened it! Thank you so much for such a wonderful package!
Response: So glad you like it all. Enjoy & use it all well! Thanks for the heart!

Comment: Rec'd your cool envelope yesterday..don't believe we have ever seen this type of bird...at least not in Oklahoma :) Always surprising when they choose such an unstable place to make a nest...how did you get in/out without disrupting her every time! That was an interesting picture...thx!!
Response: I made my hubby go in & out the back, which was a pain, but oh well! I think we have some more out there today, I hear chirping out the front door, afraid to open it. lol

Response: So glad you liked it, I had SO much fun making it. I did notice we were together, I'm working on your stuff tonight! Oh..thanks for the heart!
Comment: Hi Cheryl,
I know I am late in sending my ATC out. I am sorry. I finally found a genie image. So it will be in the mail on Monday. Thank you very much for your ATC. Yours is Great and I am not saying that because we know each other. I love it.
I hope you will like mine. Have a great weekend. Sorry again.
Thanks for the pretty card too.
Comment: Thanks. I love this ATC - especially the coffee beans. I wanted to put coffee beans on mine but then went in a totally different direction. It is so cool that I am now sending you one of mine through the non paper ATC.
Response: Can't wait to get it! I went cork on my paperless. Did one before with plastic weaving. Thanks for the 5
Comment: Loved the package. Thank you for the book, it's one I haven't read and I look forward to reading it. My youngest took one look at the little radio and adopted it, she loves it, it makes her feel like one of the big kids. They also can't wait to watch the movies.
Response: Phew.......glad you didn't read the book. It's one of the last books I "physically"read. Short stories I can do, but don't like to anymore! I have to "read" by CD now. I sent the little radio, hoping one of your kids would like it! :) Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Thank you again for the wonderful package. Mostly for being a very thoughtful person by thinking of my grand-daughter and sending her a beautiful ribbon princess crown. Many hearts to you!
Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful birthday wishes and the extras. I LOVE the scrapbooking paper that you sent and cannot wait to use it. I am thinking of making a journal for me using it. Thanks again. :0)

Comment: WOW!!!! What a phenomenal swap package!!! It was like having Christmas and my birthday all over again!!!! :) I lvove the stuff you sent, and an extra thanks for the buttons you threw in! You're a fantastic swapper - I'm going to add you as a friend! :)
Comment: My in-laws lived in Elmhurst, and my son and his wife live in Mundelein. I understand why you might want to avoid Chicago in the winter! I can remember the ground being frozen so hard it hurt your feet to walk on it. Thanks. The DustCollector
Comment: Thank you for the recipe, and the extra map card! I've always wondered what kugel was, now I know! (have you tried this before?)
Response: I grew up eating it. It's really good, try not to let it get too dried out while baking, but you don't want it too liquidy either. I love it plain without fruit, but everyone has different tastes! Thanks for the heart!!
