Comment: Thank you for the cute snowman card! Your handwritten note was extra special! I love how your family rents a cabin in the middle, that is so sweet! Your postcard is beautiful, thank you for sending me one!
Response: Thank you very much for your comment and rating.
Comment: Thank you Judy. I love it when people take the time to really write a good note with their greeting. That means more to me than extras inside the card, however, I do thank you for the lovely postcard. I checked out your website and your blog and I am looking forward to you building upon what you already have. Your designs are very lovely. I especially like the old blue truck postcard. Wishing you a very happy holiday this year. Merry Christmas.
Comment: Thanks for the lovely Pocket Letter, Judy! I really like the decorations, sparkly and lots of orange. :) The goodies are awesome too. Love the leaf stickers and ribbons. Sorry you also have FMS. It's pretty awful. I got symptoms when I was 26, so it's basically ruined my life. :/ Swap-Bot is a good happiness boost though. Thanks again and happy swapping. More hearts for you: â™¥ â™¥ â™¥
Response: You are so welcome. Glad you could use everything. Thanks for the rating and understanding. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Comment: Hello judy, loved your envie. Sure can use the goodies you've send. Only what did you printed out???
Response: Your welcome. I printed yellow smile face on front and poster looking child on back of envie. According to Pinterest they were 80's music groups. Thanks for rating. Glad you liked it and can use extras.
Comment: OoOOo the rings of Uranus are as dark as black lava or charcoal, the postcard says. Thank you for the postcard! You fit a lot of a note on the card, with neat writing :) Thank you for sharing your thoughts and the Halloween sparkle stickers with pumpkin washi tape are so cute!
Response: Your very welcome. I am glad you liked it and could read it. You will be hearing from me again if you would like. (: Judy
Comment: â¤â¤â¤Thank you so much for the amazing package of unbelievably awesome goodies! I absolutely adore it all! I already have a response PC in the mail for you. â¤â¤â¤ Can't give you enough hearts! You made my day!
Response: Your so welcome I wanted the "surprise" package to get to you before your card. Glad you liked everything.
Comment: Judy, you are awesome...I love the technique you used on the ATC!! The vintage Valentine and Christmas cards you sent are amazing!! I can't believe you found someones scrapbook in a thrift store..I can only dream about that!! That was so sweet of you to send the baby boy envies and stickers!! Thank you so very much for everything!! You deserve way more hearts for your thoughtfulness!!!
Response: Thank you so much for the wonderful comments. I try very hard to please and go the extra mile. My best to you and yours and your new little one on the way.
Comment: Thank you for the Hendersonville NC PC. I would like to visit there sometime, it sounds like a very beautiful place.
Response: Your welcome I love the bears that are scattered all over town painted by local artists. The Blue Ridge Parkway is a beautiful ride especially on a bike in the fall. If you ever get a chance you would like it. Thanks for the rating.
Comment: Wow- I'm honored to be the person to receive your first handmade card! It is beautiful- I love the gold and brown together and the pretty leaf die cuts. It was very polished and professional-looking. Your note about fall coming to your-neck-of-the-woods was very nice too! Happy Fall!!
Response: Thank you so much I fussed over that card for quite a long time, .nice to know you liked it, might try again.
Comment: The key was NOT altered just stuck on canvas and the items u sent reeked of smoke...I am allergic to smoke due to asthma..and was unable to keep anything...very disappointed!!!
Response: Wow !!! You received much more than a key glued to a canvas, I am glad I take pictures of everything I send. Had you pm'd me as you should have before you slammed me here you would have known that I altered a shinny brass key to look like "anything vintage looking" (quote from your profile). In hind sight I am sorry for the odor. I share a studio space with three artists a jewelry designer (soldering) a sculptor (welding) and a blacksmith (hot box). Your swap was on my work table for several days while I worked on the key. Since in over two years of swapping and hundreds of swaps there has never been an issue I just didn't think of it. Anyone reading my ratings will see that the problem here is not me. I will gladly send the $5.00 postage and extra for your trouble and time to return it. The key has been played with by all my 8 grandchildren and 4 greats and the vintage lock I took off of a trunk I have had for over 20 years both items has meaning to me and I hate they are not being appreciated.
Comment: What an amazing Pocket Letter! I would give you 5 hearts if I could! Thanks for doing my first PL swap with me; now I know what it should be! Sorry, I know mine certainly doesn't compare.
Response: Your so welcome Tina. Yours was just my third, they get easier and more fun the more you do. I am sure yours is just fine. If you enjoyed doing it that is all that counts. I don't think there is a right or wrong each host asks that things be done in a certain way just follow those directions(no goodies, decorate back of pocket, . goodies between front and back cards, goodies in front of pocket) all different.
Comment: Judy ~ Sorry to be so late in rating....life has been a little crazy....Wonderful pocket letter, the word elegant comes to mind. Loved it all, from the envelope your note was in to all the goodies. Thank you!
Response: Thank you for the wonderful review. I am so new at this but really love doing them. I hope life gets easier or just slows down a little for you. My best Judy

Comment: Hi Judy, great use of scraps! Love it, the colors are especially right up my alley. And thanks for the bonus scraps- can always use more. I must have subconsciously known it was eat-whatever-you-want day, I had a piece of pumpkin bread with butter on it for breakfast! Now to plan lunch...
Response: Your welcome, I loved the saying in that card, glad it made your day guilt free and gave you a chuckle.
Response: Thank you for the rating. I used a new glue because of the glass in the lid. I tried it on my household items and it worked fine but wasn't sure how it would mail. Please let me know if there was a problem.
Comment: What a grand swap! I can't believe that you found such special items from my profile. I love the red hat paper, but the motherhood post cards are really endearing and that hag with the pipe - PRICELESS!!! thank you so much, oh yeah the atc - fantastic!
Response: You are so welcome, I try to match profiles as best I can. I love meeting new people through swaps and profiles. Hope we get to swap again.
Comment: You certainly can't tell from this ATC that you are "fairly new" to ATcs. This is a fantastic ATC. Thank you so much. I appreciate all the extras, and they will surely come in handy. Have a good NC day!
Response: Your so welcome, I really enjoy this theme, but would like to learn more mediums to use.

Comment: Thank you for this ATC... If only making a quilt went as quickly as creating an ATC ;) I have to take my sewing machine in for a tune up before I do anymore sewing but it's on my to do list. I enjoyed reading your note ! I agree about staying active in your interests, I try to do the same.
Response: Thank you for the rating. I enjoyed making it. Good luck with rhe machine lol

Comment: Oh my gosh! You sent so much! I love the papers and I've already got some ideas brewing based on them. Thank you for the stickers, clear sleeves, and especially dear to my heart - the ' I <3 my pet' magnet, too. What a fantastic swap!
Response: Your very welcome glad it made you smile. I love that part !!
Comment: Thank you for the fun math atc! Thanks also for the extras, great view on the pc and the puzzles will keep me busy! I do love those from penny press :) I like how you hid the answer pages, too! And I do need to look at the answers to double check if I'm on track from time to time, lol.
Response: Your welcome. I giggled to myself when I was pulling that book apart hoping you would either like it or think I was crazy !! Fun isn't that what this is all about :)
Comment: Thanks Judy for the great assortment of goodies! Lots of fun stuff to use on my ATCs! Thanks again! :)
Response: You are very welcome. I was surprised at the amount of things I had. I have only been making atc's a very short time, but thanks to the wonderful swappers out there I am getting quite a stash! yeh!!!
Comment: Thank you for the nice bookmarks. They are certainly my style. Love the little angel pin. Also the giraffe post card. I love giraffes. I have lots of book marks but love them all. Every new book I read I take a different book mark. Just for fun. Thanks again.
Response: Glad you liked the giraffe I also love them. I am also glad you liked the bookmarks, I spent some time looking for them but it was worth it. Your welcome.

Comment: I didn't recognize the shape as a fish until I was about to rate you! Very interesting; keep it up - I think you're going to get the steampunk idea down pat in no time! Thanks for the ATC and the pc's (I love nudes, too).
Comment: Wow! Thank you so much for the cute card and the moving story. That is really something special you have there. I never felt like crying after fishing a swap out of my mailbox, but this maybe did it.Wonderfully amazing and sad at the same time. Thanks for sharing your memories!
Response: Thank You for such a wonderful comment. It was hard to write about I miss them.

Response: Glad you liked it. Have a safe trip and good time. Grandparents make special memories.
Comment: Thanks for the Vero Beach card. Florida is one of the states I have not visited. It sounds like we have a lot in common...I'm taking care of my mother too (father long gone). She's 94 and has dementia.
Comment: "A person is a person through other people." I like it! Have you seen this video? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9D05ej8u-gU You will like it if you haven't seen it before. Enjoy and thank you!!!
Response: Thank you for the comment I was so moved by the concert. I will go to youtube and watch.
Comment: Judy, Thank you for sending a postcard from Great Smoky Mountains. I would love to go there! A week ago I was in Salt Lake City, Utah and then went to Moab to visit Arches and Canyonlands National Parks. They were incredible. Thanks again for the card. Best wishes to you and your family :)
Response: Thank you for the wonderful comment. You are very welcome for the card. The mountains are beautiful all seasons but especially in fall.
Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful postcard!! I love it! I don't have very many pin-ups so it's always a treat to receive one! <3 :D Happy swapping and gardening!
PS: THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE EXTRA PACKAGE!! If I could give you more hearts, I would!! Now, those were real treats!!! :D :D :D :D I can't wait to try the coffee! Thank you again!!!
Response: What a wonderful comment thank you. I am so new it is nice for someone to let me know I am doing OK. Thank YOU again.
Comment: Thank you for the book and seashells! Looking at the 2 spiral top seashells, I can tell that you were a lot like me. there is more than one way to look at a shell than just a whole shell. I always found pieces of a shell that caught my eye.
I also like the book. I can't wait to read it. thank you for this wonderful surprise in this swap.
Response: You are very welcome I love the beach !!
