Comment: I love "ALL ABOUT ME" - it's wonderful and really does give me a tiny taste of who you are. Thanks so much....I'll use the fun embellishments you added in the altered book I'm currently working on!
Response: Thanks for the nice comments! I've not done an altered book yet, but it's on my list of things to try soon!
Comment: Thanks for the goodies. I especially like the old photos. :3
Response: You're welcome! I love old photos! Sometimes, though, when I see that they've been taken out of an album and sold one by one, like the ones I sent to you were, it makes me sad for the family that once treasured them. I think using them in art projects - whether beautiful, funny, or sentimental - is a nice way to honor the memory of the people pictured.
Comment: Thanks so much Kathy, you broke my empty mailbox streak! I like your zine and I like meeting celebrity name twins, I've met Carlos Santana, Wanda Jackson... and thanks for the extras. Those are some high quality stickers!
Response: I'm glad you liked it! Now we've got to do something about that empty mailbox, right? I hate it when I open the mailbox and there isn't even any junk mail in there! It makes me wonder if the mail person has skipped me on purpose, or if something happened to them and my happy mail is all scattered over the roadway somewhere... Wait a minute: that's how I reacted when my kids didn't get home by curfew time! Ack! I've adopted the mail carrier!!!! Lol!
Comment: Oh my goodness, Kathy! If I could give you more hearts I would! THANK YOU SO MUCH for all the lovely vintage Christmas pieces, and the lovely papers too! I'll certainly be using everything as
I wrap presents this year (my favorite part of the holiday!). You totally made my day - thank you so much!!!
Response: I'm glad you are pleased! I was happy to find a home for it where someone else could appreciate it!
Comment: Thank you for the card. I’m not sure if the card I got is for this swap or not you forgot to write the swap name on it.
Response: Millie52, my apologies! I noticed that I did seal a couple of them before I put the swap card in, and I tried to write the swap name on the envelope. I'm sorry for the confusion. Yes, it was for this swap. Thanks for letting me know about my oversight; I'll be more careful in the future. ;-)
Comment: Thank you for a wonderful swap! Great cards and I'm still swooning over the great vintage pics. I have never been in a hot air balloon, but it looks fun! In Muncie we used to have a hot air balloon festival. Made for a beautiful sky!
Comment: Thanks for the photos! So sorry to hear about the dog, but that is a sweet moment you captured. And I love your Calliandra flowers!
Response: Thanks for your comments! I'm glad you liked the photos. The dog had a wonderful life with a loving family for many many years, and although losing a fur-baby is so hard, moments like the one in the photo give nice memories to look back on when the wounded heart has healed a bit. I've been through that tragedy several times. Thanks again!
Comment: Thanks for the swap cards! Also, thank you for your letter. I will write you back soon and include a couple things I am making these days. Hopefully we can continue sending letters and little bits of crafty inspiration external to swap-bot. I will be in touch! Cheers
Response: I will look forward to hearing from you! I would like to keep in touch and exchange ideas and letters!
Comment: Thanks for the beautifully handmade PC. No smell from the card, but I had just made a cup before I got the mail so it works. ;) My roommate always says he knows when I'm home if the house smells like coffee.
Response: I love to walk into a house that smells of coffee! It makes me feel welcome before the host even greets me!
