Comment: Thanks so much for the great recipes. They sound wonderful. My sugar was high last time I had my checkup so I'm watching it. the substitution is great for me. I definitely wish you luck. Definitely taught my fair share to drive. It does play with your nerves sometimes.
Comment: I totally agree on commenting when you rate, something even if you get a five and heart if there is no comment you kind of feel ignored. I always like to comment my rating and answer when someone rated me.
Response: Thank you! I like to at least know the person appreciated my effort, I don't think a simple "Thank you" is alot to ask. Thanks for the heart, by the way, and hope you have a great weekend!
Comment: Thank you for the waterfall PC. I visited Niagara Falls last fall for the first time in many many years, and it is incredible, but we have some other beautiful falls here in NY that are a lot closer and I can see more often.
Comment: Thank you for the pretty Easter card and goodies. We traveled for our Easter/spring break, boy was it cold! We saw snow on the beach--granted we went northeast, but still!!!! Right now we are enjoying another fresh snowfall, next week should be the turnaround.
Response: You're very welcome! Hope lots of sunshine and warm weather comes your way!
Comment: Thank you so much for the fun quote and sunny Florida pc! I needed something to smile about :) We got six inches of snow here today. Seriously. The first 80 degree day we get here I am going to the beach!!
Comment: Thank you Lori for the pretty postcard and sharing about all the springtime birds where you live! I saw a robin a few weeks ago and he hung out in my tree/bush that has berries every morning for weeks. But now he's been pooping on my car looking at himself in my side mirrors. lol Happy spring!
Comment: Thank you for the nice Zion card - I LOVE Zion (only been once, two years ago, but would love to go again!). I have my own saying that is similar to what you wrote, I say that "everyone you meet is an opportunity, an opportunity to learn something new, fall in love, find a job, a new hobby..." So be kind to everyone you meet, for you never know what you may learn!
Comment: Thank you for the map card of Florida. I'm always amazed when I think I have all of the map cards and then receive another new one. I must have at least 12 different ones of Florida. Thanks agsain!
Comment: Thanks for the adorable Easter Card and the stickers. Hope the Easter Bunny brings you lots of candy!
BTW I LOVE your profile name, so creative and fun! ( wish I would have thought of it, lol)
Comment: Lori- Thank you so much for both cards! Such pretty scenes. I never would have thought of that one as dual view but I can see the concern- it is a cool card though, never seen one like that before. I really like both you sent. Would you like one from my area since you sent me 2? If yes, just message me. I would be happy to send one in return :)
Comment: Thanks for the whimsical card and note! We've had nice days, hot days, and rainy days! We were spared the worst of the recent weather system, but some counties close by took major hits. :-(. I used to live in North Central Florida, so I know how hot FL summers can be!
Comment: Dear Lori,
Thank you so much for the lovely card. Did you make it yourself?
That is so neat that you are from Maine! I have lived here since 2001. Before that I lived in Massachusetts. I have never been to Florida, but I hope to visit one day.
The weather is getting warmer, slowly but surely. We are having May showers instead of April showers, but I am sure the trees are happy. I am hoping for some more sunshine!
Response: I purchased the postcard from an artist on Etsy.. She has a really neat blog called afancifultwist.com. It's been really hot here this past week. Despite having been here since the end of 1996, I still cannot tolerate the high temps. I'll send some sunshine your way! Best wishes, Lori.
Comment: Wow!! Thanks so much, Lori for not only a beautiful Valentine's Day card, but also the stickers and really nice bookmark. You are very generous, thanks so much! It was a happy mail day, thanks to you! Happy Swapping!!
Comment: Thank you so much for the card and the sweet little extrasI love getting fun, decorated envelopes in the mail, its such a ray of sunshine along with all the bills and junk mail! Your recipe for Strawberry Lemonade sounds so delicious, I'll have to try that this summer. And the that tape is so cute - where did you get it? (o; Mary
Response: You're welcome! I actually found the tape in a gift shop here in town, and have had it for a while but never used it. I decided it was about time! :)
Comment: Hey, Lori! Thank you so much for the two wonderful recipes! I have a key lime pie recipe, but its different than this, so I am thrilled to have a new one to try..and who doesn't love lemon meringue..thanks so much!
Comment: I want to first apologize, my husband got the mail Thanksgiving weekend and never gave it to me, I just discovered it today. He is now banned from ever getting the mail again. Thank you for the lovely card.
Comment: Thanks for the PC! Enjoy your South Florida weather, I am so jealous. (I just moved to Virginia from Tampa Bay). And we have "icy mix" (rain with snow but not enough to stick) on the forecast for Saturday! :(
Comment: Thank you for the cute Halloween card...and the stickers and ATC! You did great on your 2nd ATC! You should have seen mine lol:-) I was proud of it sure...but considering the ones I make now, I'm so glad my partner was understanding at the time lol! Great job...and Happy Halloween!!!
Comment: Hi Lori, so sorry it took awhile to rate, so much is going on. Thank you for your note, we have much in common. I have 2 in their 20's (boys) and 2 not tweens yet (boys) and a 3yr old granddaughter. Thank you so much for the little cards, they are too cute!!!

Response: Haha! That is so funny! He does have such an evil look on his face!
Comment: You ROCK! Both of the cards that you sent are so fabulous and perfect for me...thanks much!

I'll just have to try and see if I can find peanut butter here anywhere. If I can't, would you be interested to enter a private swap? You could send me some peanut butter and I could send you something from Argentina :)) Anyway, great choice for recipes!!
Response: Yes the sausage is a pretty common breakfast menu item. Glad you like the recipes!
Comment: Oooh, thanks for the link! I have been to Key West. We used to spend part of our vacation every year on Lake Okochobee (I was not a huge fan, nothing to do there, so I took little day trips to West Palm Beach, the keys, etc.
Response: You're very welcome! I agree about Okeechobee. Boooring.. LOL
Comment: Thanks for the neato ballpark PC! The Hollywood area is one of my favorite places to see old pictures of, because of how much it's changed in the past 100 years. Fascinating to see. :) Thanks!
Comment: cool pc...mmmm-i love raspberries! we have a bush out in our back woods and though the birds get to them faster than i can, the few i have eaten fresh picked & warm from the sun off of it have been AMAZING! Not sure where in Fla. you live, but i used to live in Sarasota & still visit my mom there often-so beautiful! Thanks for sharing! Happy swapping!
Response: You're welcome! And I'm 30 miles north of West Palm Beach, southeast coast. I loooove raspberries!
Comment: Thank you for the delicious sounding teas; the spiced pear looks quite unique & fun. I actually just tried the TAZO Berryblossom White this week, and it was good. Thanks for sending the extras too; the tea bag holder is cute. The mini stickers fun too. Overall, thank you for a fun swap!
Comment: Thanks so much for "observ[ing] good fath and justice toward [my] nation, [and] cultivat[ing] peace and harmony with [me]" by sending me an awesome, awesome old, deckled postcard with a couple of particularly sexy old cars outside the US Capitol! Sorry for the late rating, and please know that I loved it! :)
Comment: wow you grew up in waldoboro, small world!
my brother gary was a teacher at ad gray school he PE , did you have him for a teacher?
Response: You're welcome! Gosh you know I cannot remember. I started school at Friendship Village school, and I went to A.D. Gray in the early 80's, The older I get, the worse my memory gets. My brother worked at the Maine State Prison for a number of years and transferred to Bucks Harbor. Small world, indeed!
Comment: Hi Lori. I've never been to the Washington Catherdral but have seen it from a distrance while checking out other parts of Washington DC. What an amazing place Washington is but I'm sure glad I don't live there.
Take care - Carol
Response: It is a beautiful structure. Hope you're having a great summer so far!
Comment: That is one really neat looking hotel--and I was tickled to see it's in Itasca. I used to have a friend there, and I visited him once. Of all the little places in Illinois! I didn't stay at the Wyndham, though, more like Motel 6. :D Stay cool and beat the heat down there in FL. Thanks!
Comment: Love the postcard Lori! The colors are amazing. You did good at the estate sale. You talk about liking nail products in your profile. You know, the only time I painted my toenails was the day I went into labor with our oldest daughter who will be 31 next January!
Response: Glad you like it! LOL and we have like 35 or more colors of nail polish in our house. When our 9 year old is in the mood for painting, dad is usually the one who is the good sport, and lets her paint his nails! Haha! It's a good laugh!
Comment: Thanks for the wonderful package. Lillian really lovedthe bone and the pink stuffed animal. She put them in the bed and would not let me take them out. Thanks for the stickers also. Great package!!
Response: You are very welcome. I am happy to hear she likes her treats. :)
Comment: Hi Lori, Your package arrived this morning thank you very much. There was a lovely selection of items, I hadn't ever seen the fold and send envelopes before apart from the old fashioned blue envelopes so that was a lovely surprise. Have a great day and thanks again.
Kind regards Helen
Response: Glad you received them. You're very welcome!
Comment: Many thanks, Lori, for the special stickers! I DO love cats and Lisa Frank. I remember Lisa Frank designs from my daughters'younger days! I always thought they were cute and--best of all--they all have pink on them!
