Comment: Thanks for the extras, you sent with this swap! I will forward Bonnie's PC in round #82. We had a season of "Building Alaska" filmed here in Larsen Bay. I am just as fascinated as those that don't live here on how life is depicted here! You have to respect the wilderness. The rewards and the beauty that surrounds us are worth every minute of work. Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Response: I can only imagine how fiercely beautiful and fascinating it is in Alaska! Pretty cool to got to see the filming close to home. You're very welcome for the little goodies...thanks for forwarding the pc in the next round. Hugs!
Comment: I always love seeing all of the different fabrics people use. I love how bright and vibrant this set is. Thank you so much for the extras. I do want to make a quilt someday with what I have collected but I have used quite a few of these from previous swaps in an attempt to make Teesha Moore journals. Love them!
Response: I'm more inclined to use mine in journals as well, lol...instant gratification. Quilts take soooo much longer to make. I love the tactile feel the fabric adds especially as tabs! Thanks for rating!
Comment: Love what you did to the page in the book. Real nice, Thank you for the extras, I will try to make a few of them myself. I like how you used the map to make the pocket. I like all the blue papers inside of the pocket too.

Comment: Robin, this is gorgeous! Love all the flip-outs and your painted stickers (wow) and every beautiful thing in between. Your cover page is beautiful. And the tabs! What a neat idea. I learned so many things to try for myself in your journal. Two of my favorite pages are the one with the jumping mouse and the one with the cute squirrel. What an inspiration! Thank you for creating something so wonderful for me!
Response: Yay, I’m so glad it arrived safely....I was getting concerned, afraid it might have gotten lost. I’m so glad you liked everything. I love adding tabs and the jumping mouse was from a children’s book. ❤️ It was great fun for me to create for you.

Comment: We have a veggie garden in our back yard. It has been so nice because we can grow all year long here! Sounds like my children share your childhood sedimints about not liking gardening haha! Thank you for everything!

Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed the envie! I was in the mood for bright and colorful (so rare for me!) but we've had so few sunny days here that I needed a bit of color to liven things up. I am enjoying the WOW group so much! Lots of fun and interesting swaps! Thank You! =)
Comment: Thank you for the cute card! I have some friends who love Guardians Of The Galaxy but I have never seen it myself. It is on my list of movies to watch!

Comment: Thank you for this truly happy washi mail that appeared in my mailbox today! :) I enjoyed your bright, pretty card/envie design, note, the lovely tapes. I know what you mean about a slight (ha!) washi tape addiction. So little washi, so little time (and funds). LOL
Response: Iâ€™m so glad you enjoyed everything! Thanks for hosting the swap and inviting me to exchange with you! It was such a fun and creative swap. So sorry itâ€™s taken such a long time to respond. I have been a bit under the weather. â¤ï¸
Comment: Thank you for the sweet card & stickers. I wish I could take credit for naming my cats! They are both rescue kitties & were named when we got them. We also liked the names so we kept them. Happy Valentine's Day!!
Response: Awww, that's so sweet! Rescue pets are the best! Have a wonderful Valentine's Day! Thanks for the heart rating!
Comment: I really love the postcard! I make sure to protect my chickens well as Iâ€™ve seen some hawk looking birds flying about, but chickens are more fierce than you may think!
Response: Yes, I know! My mother had chickens when I was growing up...they can be quite fierce and each chicken has its own personality (not always so nice, lol). Thank you for the sweet comment and rating!
Comment: Thank you for the flowers and butterflies PC. I picked up my granddaughter on Martin Luther King Jr day because I had the day off and she was out of school. We had lunch, went to see Star wars then colored together.
Response: Oh, that sounds like such a fun day! Glad you got to spend it with your granddaughter. Thanks for the heart rating!
Comment: You did so well writing with your other hand! Thanks, Robin. (Send some warmth up to Missouri!)
Response: I would send warmth your way but we have been way colder than normal this year...but that could be warmer for you! They are prediicting that February may be cooler than normal, too, I think. At least daylight lasts longer now! Thanks for the heart rating!

Response: Iâ€™m not so sure itâ€™s all on your side, lol, seems as if our postal service sometimes takes way too long to deliver! Thank you for the sweet rating and have a wonderful year! â¤ï¸
Comment: So sorry for the super late rate! I'm noticing that some of my recent rates were not saved (or something...?) I could have sworn I already rated you but this is one of a few swaps that I'm rechecking that are not rated for some reason. I really enjoyed the PL!! It was a fun swap, thank you for hosting! <3

Comment: Another nice Christmas postcard from you in my mailbox today ! Thank you very much !
Response: To finish the story...I mailed your PC and realized I had not added the correct postage so re-sent a new card. I assumed the first one would not get to you. Let me know if you had to pay postage. So glad they both arrived, lol! Have a wonderful holiday! =)
Comment: Robin, thank you for the cute washi tape inside the little pouch. I love christmas card too! Your hand lettering is so beautiful! Do you do calligraphy as well? Merry Christmas!
Response: I can't really call if calligraphy...just fancied-up writing. I worked in a Christmas store for several years and needed to personalize ornaments so this was my take on adding names to ornaments. So glad you liked the goodies...thanks for rating! Merry Christmas! =)
Comment: Robin, what a wonderful swap you put together for me! I love it all, especially the little Christmas pocket withe the adorable swap cards and the washi tape! And the striped envelope with the embellished paper clips inside is fantastic! My favorite one is the reindeer - I just love the expression on his face! Thanks for using such a nice variety of postage stamps to mail it too! Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones!
Response: So happy you liked the goodies and the stamps! The reindeer had lots of character! Hope you and your loved ones have a fabulous holiday season! =)
Comment: Awesome card, thanks so much! And your themed Christmas trees sound amazing. Do you buy all the ornaments or do you make them yourself? Best wishes and Merry Christmas!
Response: You're very welcome for the card. My trees are loads of fun (at least to me, lol). I make most of the ornaments and supplement a few store-bought ornaments to fill the tree nicely. The most difficult one was the Nightmare before Christmas tree that required lots of hand-painting on glass and plastic clear ornaments! Jack's skeleton face all over my tree...it was such fun! I bought a purple Christmas tree just for these ornaments! I also included handpainted ornaments for the main characters in the movie as well. Thanks for rating, Hope you have a wonderful Christmas!
Comment: Hi again Robin! So wonderful to have you be my partner again. I LOVE your washi card, it is so beautiful and yay for black + white ðŸ˜ŠðŸ˜Š thank you for the extra washiâ€™s theyâ€™re so lovely.
Response: I seem to gravitate to black and white washi...so hard to resist, lol! Thanks for being such a great partner! ðŸ˜Š
Comment: Thank you for a beautiful bird pocket letter. Nice to read about the group that meets in the library. People with mental or health disabilities are wonderful to work with and seeing their progress always makes me sure my job is meaningful.
Response: Youâ€™re so very welcome, And, yes, they are wonderful to get to know and work with...delightful. Thanks for rating,
Thanks for the nice card. What part of Oklahoma is your son in? I always assume Lawton or OKC when people move here, but I don't know if that makes sense. I'm fortunate to be in a wooded part, but it is pretty brushy and thorny.
Response: Hi, Brian, he moved to Tulsa several years ago to be closer to his dad who has health issues. He has a job he enjoys, his own apartment, and a small lovely dog that he adores. He is much a hermit troll like his dear ol' mom and enjoys his solitude and quiet time. Glad you like the card. Thanks for the sweet rating! I would prefer the woods myself; I grew up in the country surrounded by blackberry bushes, lots of brush and gorgeous trees.
Response: Thank you! =) It's hard to choose paper for someone else...everyone has their own preferences but there is such a ton of paper to try...samples are great. I found a huge tub of paper packs that I have forgotten I had over the weekend. Such great and fun bounty but I am wondering how I will ever use it all, lol!
Comment: Oh my goodness, wow! Thank you so much for your stunning fall themed Magpie Journal! I love it all, it is so beautiful. My favourites include the leaf with the raindrops on it, the fall themed ATC and the recipes (as I love new recipes!). I also love the vintage vibe to the journal! I felt like I was right there with you, experiencing fall and all the beautiful things that come with it. I can tell that you put a lot of effort into this journal, which I truly appreciate and treasure. Thank you so so much! Take care, Annabelle xoxo
Response: Whew! So happy it arrived safely! It was my first experience creating a magpie journal but loads of fun! Iâ€™m truly happy that you enjoyed it! Thanks for rating! â¤ï¸
Comment: Thank you for the pc, not only is the books image just beautiful but Iâ€™m glad you enjoy scaring yourself through literature too, I would recommend the Cat Who series, there are quite a few books about those intuitive Siamese mystery solvers
Response: By Lillian Kackson Braun!? Such a fun series...loved the characters...especially the cats. A newer series, Cat in the Stacks by Miranda James, is another cozy mystery series featuring an awesome Maine Coon cat! Thanks for the â¤ï¸ rating and the recommendation.
Comment: Thanks for sharing such a treasured memory! Do you have any quilts made by your mom or grandmother? I have afghans and one quilt made by my mom and one afghan made by my dad's mother. Thanks for a great card!
Response: I do have one you mother made for me...a fan quilt which I love. None from either of my grandmothers. They both had huge families to pass these treasures to for keepsakes. So glad you have the quilt and afghan...such wonderful keepsakes. Youâ€™re welcome and thank you! â¤ï¸!
Comment: Where do I begin? The envelope is gorgeous and your handwriting is divine! (Iâ€™m saving the envelope!)

Comment: Thank you for the library/globe card! One day I'd love to have all of my books out on shelves and in a room just for reading! My husband will finally be back in the same state/house (after 3 years) on the 21st! Thank you for your kind words. :)

Comment: Thank you for the great postcard from the Great Smoky Mountains. We were lucky because the wildfires were not near us. Thank you for your kind thoughts.

Comment: Dear Robin,
Thank you so much for the washi tape! They are all so lovely <3 I appreciate the Halloween themed ones as well. I have been regretting for not signing up for Halloween card swaps and receiving your card kind of make me feel more in the spirit of Halloween! I agree with your opinion that animation movies often have great story lines :-) They are great for both kids and adults to watch!

Comment: Thank you for the adorable Washi! I don't have any of these yet.
Response: Iâ€™m so glad! Itâ€™s amazing how many washi tapes are out there...Iâ€™ve only received one that I already had. Such a fun way to share and receive new washi to add to your collections. Thanks for the rating. â¤ï¸
Comment: Oh my goodness! I LOVED and appreciated all of the fun Halloween themed items you included for me! Cute spiders would've been ok, I just don't like the creepy realistic looking ones so no worries if you had sent that envie to me! I loved the envie that you made! The stickers were so cute! The paperclips were so unique and awesome! Loved the washi samples too!The scrapbook pages will get put to good use as well!!
Response: Hi, Sandye, Iâ€™m so glad you liked everything! I had such a great time creating the envelope and making some of the goodies. Lots of fun for me, too! Thanks for the â¤ï¸!
Comment: thank you, thank you, thank you - the ATC is perfect - now I can start joining those swaps since I know what it is all about - watching videos is much different than holding it in your hand. Everything is wonderful!
Response: Iâ€™m so glad you liked it, Julie! Good luck with the ATCs! ðŸ˜Š

Response: So glad you enjoyed all the goodies, Tracie! Reading your profile gave me a great idea for some things you might be able to use. I had as much fun stuffing the envelope as I hope you did opening it. =)
