Comment: I received your postcard and enjoyed your comments about my profile! I often think it is too long and that I should pare down much of it, yet I think it is an accurate depiction of who I am---a very multi-faceted "young" at heart woman. I am having a bit of a challenge facing up to that next April 18 when I will be 70! Fifty and 60 didn't bother me in the least. In fact, for 60, one of my Comp I classes surprised me with a "Tres Leche" cake in class on the 18th. They could not believe that I was 60! I guess I need to find all of them again and have a "70 Years Young" party with another of those luscious cakes!
Comment: What a beautiful postcard! Thank you so much :) And thanks for the book tip - I'll put Invisible Monster on my list. I've read some of Chuck Palahniuk's books in the past and really enjoyed them :)
Comment: What a pleasant surprise receiving some new to the swaps journal in my mailbox this afternoon. Loved you writing and flow too. You did a great job and can't wait to answer your question and send on in the next round!!!!
Response: Thank you! I was pretty nervous about how this turned out. :)
Comment: I just love that two of our words were the same! (the D words). Stupid UPSP decided to postmark right over the meaning of the first so I had to look it up. I'm glad you can see my sparkle from up there ♥ *giggle*
Comment: Thank you for this lovely pink Belle card (one of my favorites! I always smile when a card I like very much "comes back" to me), gorgeous vintage postage (one of my favorites! I've been eyeing it, but everytime a sheet goes to auction, the price skyrockets :p), and cool trivia, Irene! I love DIsney cameos like this (like Rapunzel and Eugene in Frozen, or Belle in The Hunchback of Notre Dame) -- I will have to keep an eye out for her next time I watch BatB <3 Happy Labor Day weekend!
Response: This makes me so happy! I'm thrilled that you loved the postcard and the nifty bit of trivia. Happy Disney watching!
Comment: Thank you for this lovely swap! You chose so well for me and I appreciate the time you took to do so - I love the mushroom envelope and memos as well as the other memos, washi, letterset and stickers. Thanks again!
Response: I'm so glad you liked everything! I had a lot of fun putting it all together. Thanks for the heart! <3
Comment: Wow, Irene! Your taste in books is quite varied. Love it! I recognized Sci-Fi, Horror, and a classic. Recognized the other two, too, but not well enough to know their genres (but they're still different, I think. ???). :-) Thank you so much for sharing and thanks for coming up with this wonderful swap for us! :-)
Response: Thank you! I'm so glad you enjoyed it. And yes, my books taste is quite varied, in fact it's all over the place. LOL. I hope you found something interesting enough to read. :)
