Comment: Thank you for the fabulous collection of poetry you bestowed on me as the component of this swap. First of all, I love the cover you created, featuring all the poets that were teatured inside the Poetry Journal. You featured some poets that I am fond of myself like Maya Angelou, Allen Ginsbeg. At the same time, you introduced me to some new poets I am not familiar with like--Louise Gluck. I read several poems about cats, my favorite pet. I really love the collection you put together for me and will be returnig to it and reading some poems over and over. Thank you again for a great collection. Poetry is a favorite of miine and I am so glad that several people are hosting poetry swaps. Hopefully we might meet up again for some of the other poetry swaps. Until then, Happy Swapping!!!!
Response: I am sooooo glad you liked it! If you are ever interested in a private poetry-themed swap I would be very willing! I am a poet myself, and adore poetry. :) many hugs.
Comment: A great journal. I love the topic of relaxation, your entries (I've read a couple of them so far), the way it's decorated on the outside and the fact that there's space for me to make my own notes as well.
Comment: What a Beautiful Journal! You put a lot of work & thought into it! I especially love that cover page and am delighted to see you are a fan of Anne Sexton. I also appreciate the extras! You really did a great job!
Response: you are very welcome rita. i know i had to keep you waiting due to my all my problems, and i tried my best to make up for it. plus, i love poetry journals, i would want to recieve something great, so i tried to make something you could keep for a very long time.

Comment: What a beautiful, beautiful book. Thank you!!!!
Response: you are very welcome. i hope you enjoy it. and i forgot to tell you that i put several of my own poems in there, look for Stacy Lynn Mar. I worked so hard on the journal, I wanted to make sure you received something worthwhile. Many hugs.
Comment: Thank you so much for those lovely ATCs and the extra special poetry you selected. It was such a special surprise that added to my day!
Response: i am glad you like how I chose to lay the cards out. I was worried they would be boring, but I wanted so much to display each poet at the core of who they really were, thus a famous quote. Hugs and I will be sending that journal of poetry out to you soon! :)
Comment: Thanks for the list - I'd love to read what you wrote on that one site, but couldn't find it there, if you send me a link I'd love to see what you got published there!
