Comment: Got your PC, I lived in Ga and we visited Ala. several times. We even had the opportunity to pick some cotton, which is not an easy job by hand, the hulls are hard & can cut your hand, But we did have fun. Thanks for sharing. Have a great day. bearnbabs
Response: So glad to hear you got. I was worried it got lost in mail so I was going to message you today and let you know I was sending another until I saw you rated me. Thank you for the rate and heart.
Comment: Beautiful bear! And yes, I have been to Tennessee, fairly often when we lived in Houston. We used to go north via the Natchez Trace when going to visit my parents in MD. If you haven't ever driven the Trace, I think you would find it very interesting, that is if you like things like living history demonstrations, and a scenic drive with no trucks allowed. Happy swapping!
Comment: Thanks for all the great images! I love the playing cards too. I do a lot of ATCs and can definitely use them. My daughter already stole the one with the tiger on it! I also just started doing pocket letters. They are really fun to put together. Thanks again!
Response: Your welcome. Thank you for swapping with me and for the heart.
Comment: I loved to see your board and reading your answers. I too had hard time understanding the expression question. I notice we have some similarity in our answers. For me it was really good to focus on gratitude and to see how many great things I have in life.
Response: A fun swap but a little challenging. I now have an Instagram account if you'd like to follow. I joined just for this group.
Comment: Hi Angel! WOW! What a fun swap! Yes, I do make pocket letters and will definitely use the supplies you sent. Thank you! I like your idea of storing the pocket letters in a binder! Great job! Happy Swapping! Valerie
Response: Thank you so much for the heart. Binder is a great way to keep the pocket letters safe and easy to look through.
Comment: Thank you for hosting this! And thanks for sharing your board. I found so many wonderful images I'd never seen before and it's been a wonderful way to spend time remembering all that he was. :)
Response: You're welcome. Thank you for the heart. Thank you for joining my swap.
Comment: Thanks for the nice comment! The first thing I crocheted was a dusty pink and white striped blanket for my dolls. I remember being proud I could change colors! I'd love to swap with you directly some time.
Response: You should be proud of it. I think the first time I really ever made anything was sewing bib shorts in Home Ec class in High School. I was proud of it. It was all red. What kind of swap would you like to do? Think about it and I'll message you soon. Thank you for the heart.
Comment: My favourite character is Joey. He was always so adorable an naive. But Rachel was great too, as were all the others ♥
You should come to Germany one day it is a really nice countries and there are lot of nice things to see :)
Response: Yes, he was. All of them were great. You are right about that. Thank you for the heart.
Comment: thanks so much for sharing your challenge with me! im happy for you for completing it. that's great! Im still working on mine :/ I havent been online for about a week due to the craziness of the holiday, and had to go through all the gazillion sale ad emails to find your email. happy swapping and holidays! :)
Response: I'm glad you enjoyed. I like to read. This time of year is crazy. I know I get all kinds of junk mail so I thought leaving you date and time of sending email would make it a little easier to find. I would have been okay sending you a new one if I had too. Thanks for the heart :) Merry Christmas!
Comment: Great job. Just took a 2 wk vacation to Ohio this past summer to visit my 2 sisters and the Amish country. One sister is in Columbus and a trip to the zoo is always fun. I grew up in Western PA so Ohio trips were always plentiful.
Response: Thank you for the heart. We've been to Columbus Zoo many times.
Comment: Hi there from just around the corner. :) thanks for your memories of your summer vacation. Great waterfalls. I just went to Niagara Falls a few weeks ago. They are surely amazing. Have a great fall and enjoy the Indian summer.
Response: Niagara Falls is awesome! I saw it when I was a kid. Thank you for the lovely heart.
Comment: Thanks for the pocket letter. My first grade teacher, Mrs. Findley, lost her husband in WW2 and moved to Findley, OH! The only place in Ohio I ever lived was 4 years in Middletown, OH. I didn't like it there - it was flat land and nothing like what I was used to!
Response: Interesting. I have lived in different towns/cities but they were always in this area. Either Hancock or Wyandot county. I know Ohio isn't much to look at but I'm used to it. I do love to visit the mountains in TN. Thank you for the heart.
Comment: Sadly, no I have not been published. But I've never gotten really serious about it either, which needs to change. I have 2 pet cats. They live inside. There are many cats living outside, and while I do sometimes get attached, they aren't really pets. And I TRY not to name them. I spent several years away from Oklahoma. I know it seems odd, but I think Buffalo Cemetery in Beckham County might be my favorite place to go, although I'm not there too often. So many people I love are there; it just kinda makes me feel peaceful.
Response: I have 2 cats as well. Cemeteries can be interesting to visit. I've visited a couple.
Response: Thank you for the rate and heart and for helping me figure out how to link you my board. Being on swap-bot for almost 4 yrs. you would think I would already have learned how. It was much easier than what I thought.
Comment: Thank you. I'm so sorry for the late rate.
I thought I rated. I love everything you sent.
Response: Omg, thank you. I read your profile and saw your on a swap-bot break so I thought you was busy in life and forgot to rate. Thanks for the heart. I thought blue would be easy but it wasn't. I love every shade
Comment: Hello Angel, Apologies for the very late rating -- I thought I had already rated this! I haven't been swapping for a while. Anyway, received this swap and enjoyed it very much! Loved the elaborate peacock keychain.Thank you for all the swappy goodness! <3
Comment: Thanks for the GREAT pocket letter! You would be wonderful friend with my wife LOL her favorite thing is coffee too. 8-) It was very well done and lots of goodies I can definitely use. Thanks so much!
Response: OOOoooo, Yay, I'm so glad you like. And to think I was going to do minions but decided I love coffee more. I had so much fun making it and tried to add goodies I thought you would like/use. My husband got me hooked on coffee. I never drank it until I met him which was like 21 years ago. It makes me sound old since I wrote/said that last sentence but I'm not. Lol Giggle. I'm only 42.
Comment: I recently found a stack of mail behind the freezer and your swap was one of them. I'm so sorry about the delay in rating you for this swap.
I just wanted to wish a very very belated happy birthday. And thank you so much for the calendar. Its the perfect size for me to keep next to my monitor at work to count dates for case closings.
Response: OMG, I thought i was rated by all my partners. Thank you and I appreciate the heart. I had to go and check to see if I rated everyone and I'm glad I did because there was one I did not.
Comment: I like all the Star Wars movies. The stories are simple, but the effects are great. I don't have any pets unless you count the neighborhood cats that sleep in my back patio or the wold birds that eat the seed i put out for them. We will be seeing the minion movie real soon.
Response: I was hoping you would like it. Q was hard to do. Those types of movies/shows were never interesting to me. Thank you for the heart.
Response: Thank you The book and purse I almost kept for myself but I'm like no, no, it is for a swap, plus the shade of green of purse wasn't me. I hope you use it and that the family tree book will get filled by you or another family member :)
Comment: Hi Angel, I wish I could give you 1000 hearts today because the vintage "motel" pc is the bomb! And the Janis Joplin stamp is so so awesome, I love it! I am raving on my FB page about this stamp :)xx And I love that you made an acoustic poem of spring :)xx Very cool to get this in my mail box today, sending many thanks to you :)xx Happy spring swapping :)xx
Response: Omg, thank you for the heart and the very nice comment. I'm getting positive feedback back about my Janis Joplin stamps. I might have to get more. If your post office doesn't have them you can order them on the usps website.
Comment: I love this card - you're right, it's perfect for me!!! Hahaha. I've seen one of the movies - very weird, lol! Thanks so much!!!
Response: Thank you. I'm glad you like it. I got that pc in a RAK and I have more like that if you want to swap again. It is hard to find homes for postcards like that. I've never seen the movie. I never even heard of it until I got the RAK.
Comment: Thank you for the great pc...I really love it! I appreciate the x-tras, washi tape deco and stamps. FYI: I am on the west coast of canada, niagra falls is east coast,Ontario area. I'd like to go there some day myself :)
Response: Your welcome. You've never been there? You need to go.
Comment: I live in upper state N.Y. right on the Cdn. and USA border line. my front window view is the St. Lawrence river. I am very fortunate and lovely here.
Yes, we have maybe 4' of snow and cold. I love it.
TKU 4 playing and love your gum balls. take good care
Response: Your lucky to have a beautiful view to look at every day from your house. Yep, cold and snowy here too. We have had many 2 hr. school delays because in the negatives.
Comment: Oh my gosh. Glad I waited to read your message until after I finished drinking my tea. Since you are a "broken adult on Valentine's Day" I suppose you might want to revisit the "Embarrassed grapes and purple Jack Daniel's" of your childhood! :P
Response: Lol. It did turn out funny. I probably shouldn't have been in the purple Jack Daniels. That is probably why I'm a broken adult. Lol. Embarrassed grapes is too funny.
Comment: I GOT IT!!! I absolutely love it! Very fun and creative. I have not read through every single question, but I will. Thank you so much! Very cool book!!! :)
Response: Thank you Josh for the heart. I'm so glad it reached you this time. I'm still trying to figure out why they returned it back to me and had said the person moved. I was worried it would happen again. So glad you like it.
Comment: Thanks, Angel, for the great Ohio PC! So glad you found them! How do the balloons stay away from all the power lines down there? (ours are buried) I bet that is a colorful sight! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Response: Your welcome! I don't know how they do it really. It is very colorful and awesome!
Comment: I love the photos you sent! Fun thing, I was at Ameriflora, too! In case you're wondering, it was in 1992, and was to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Columbus landing. Thanks for the art!
Response: That is interesting. I didn't realize that. I thought it was an every day and every year event. It was fun.
Comment: I just got your nice photos. Loved them. Thank you. It was a good swap idea.
Response: Thank you so much. I actually learned about the buldings while googling. The Cotton Mill actually was very interesting to learn about. Such a beautiful place to visit too. The scenery is amazing.
Comment: Thank you Angel for your G-postcard and welcoming me to Swapbot. It sure is addictive :D
My baby boy is 50% Korean so I didn't want his name to be too Dutch. The name Kenzo suited perfectly. I believe it's a Japanese name, like the designer ;)
Response: It is very addictive. Your welcome! If you haven't already feel free to join the H swap.
Comment: Hot air balloon ride! I've always wanted to go on one, but they're too expensive for me; that's totally going on my list! I love your list. It's simple yet fun. And I'm totally with you about that swing!!
Response: That is why I haven't went up in one too. One day it will happen. Thanks for the heart.
Comment: i wish there were a way to give you more than a 5 heart..... this package is way overboard... i love all of it.... gargoyles... are you serious? i have them in my yard, at my front door and inside of my home... i love this gargoyle that you sent :) i have not seen that movie before so it should be fun.... thank you for the seeds also and OMG the tote is to die for.... love the skulls..... you sure knew how to shop for me...thank you so much for being so generous and for selecting such great items... hugs, WINGY
Response: OMG, I'm so glad you enjoyed everything. I had fun shopping for you. I was also shopping for another thrift store swap as well. I think I even found some items for me as well, LOL. Thanks so much!
Comment: Thank you so much! I just received your package in the mail and exactly on my birthday! :) The crossword books are perfect!....and a Happy Birthday to you too!
Response: Yeah, arrived just in time. I didn't think it would. I couldn't decide which puzzle book to get so I bought both. :) Actually, it is my Samuel's birthday in July. He turns 10 this year. Thanks!
Comment: Wonderful pet gifts! 4 pets benefited from your items. The items were superb! I just love the little coin purse. It is adorable and fits right into my collection perfectly. I love little coin purses. On behalf of my pets and myself, I thank you so very much! Happy Swapping!!
Response: Great! Glad to make you and your pets happy. I added a surprise for you and knew you like coin purses because I read your profile.
Comment: Wow! The perfect find for me! I wish I could give you more than one heart for this swap because you definitely made my day. And I love your idea (thinking outside of the box) and upcycling the butterfly into a windchime! Thank you ever so much for being a swapper I wish I could give more than one heart to.
Response: Thank you so much. When I spotted it I knew I had to buy it for you. The heart is appreciated.
Comment: thanks for the cute stickers , love them and the brochures from Cooter Garage love to go there
Response: Your welcome Mary. You all would enjoy Cooter's Garage. I know we will visit Nashville's again. I think the one in Gatlinburg is bigger than Nashville's. We will visit Gatlinburg's hopefully next spring or summer.
Comment: Love the page. Its good to see that cigarette ads can be good for something! Abd thanks for the "horsey" stuff.
Response: Your welcome! How did you know it came from a cigarette ad? Lol. We get Marlboro coupons every now and then. We normally give the coupons to a friend or throw it away. We used to use them but he quit smoking plus when he did smoke he rolled them because they were so much cheaper, Thanks for the heart. It feels good to get a heart because I know you really like it. It was fun to create.
Comment: ThankyouAngel for the lovely photo of the elephant, they are one of my favourite animal to see at the zoo, I would love to go on a safari in Africa. Thankyou Angel for the nice note, have a nice day love jennifer.
Comment: Thanks for the great stationery. I needed some really badly. The waterfall IS beautiful! Would love to see it one day. Great asst. of PCs too .......... especially the Native American and Cat ones. Thanks again!
Response: Your welcome! Thanks for doing a private swap with me. I am so happy to get envelopes. I need them for my 5 x 7 journal page and photo swaps. Thank you for the heart :)
Comment: Thanks for the nice, festive journal page. I like the turkey joke! I bet they would be happy having any type of Christmas but white would be more celebratory (I made it! I didn't get the ax! :-)
Response: Thanks! So, glad you enjoyed it. Yay, white or not, I bet they would be happy. Lol.
Comment: I love your photos! We have a balloon festival here, too. In fact, it's in a couple weeks. It's called the Balloon-A-Fair and takes place in Ravenna, Ohio, one town east of mine. Thanks for sending!
Response: Ohhhh, I'm going to have to google it. Maybe talk my husband into going to it. Ours is called Flag City balloon Fest. Thank you!
Comment: I am so grateful for the OUTSTANDING package I received today. I adore all the FABULOUS stickers you sent. Especially the raven one- really COOL! But I'm in awe of the Native American pc. Extremely BREATHTAKING!!! This is the BEST package I have received EVER!!! Thank you SOOO much! Many, many, many HEARTS to you <3 <3 <3
Response: I know I went a little crazy sending stickers. Glad I could make your day and glad you enjoy the pc's. I can't wait to receive my sticker package from my partner. Thank you for the heart.
Comment: Wow, Bonesucking BBQ sounds right up my alley. I enjoyed your Tennessee pins and I thank you for sharing them with me. Blessings, ellie
Response: I re-pinned that at the last minute from one of my partners so I can't take full credit for that. It does sound good, doesn't it? Then, afterwards, go to Cruz Farms and have some homemade ice cream. Your welcome!
Comment: Thankyou Angel for sharing your town with me, I enjoyed reading about Findlay, my boys would love to see the old railroads and trains. We have spent many hours watching the trains here in Torquay, have a nice day love Jennifer.
Response: Your welcome. They would love the trains. What kid wouldn't, right?
Comment: Thanks for the great pics. You kitty looks so soft and fluffy!
I really liked the waterfall too!
Response: Your welcome. Thank you for positive feedback. I love taking photos! Daisy is soft and cuddly but not into cuddling. She likes to be petted but only if she is in the mood and she absolutely hates to be picked up. Zebra is opposite. She doesn't mind being petted whenever or picked up
Comment: Thankyou Angel for your lovely e-mail about your adorable cats Daisy and Zebra. I loved reading about your cats, they are my favourite animal, I love the photos your cats are lovely and very pretty,thankyou Angel, love jennifer.
Comment: Thanks for stopping by my blog :) The chessboard took about a half hour to cut out, and a half hour to clean the glass and lay it in my kiln. Then it was 12 hours in the kiln before it was finished and cool enough to withdraw
Response: Thank you for the rate and heart. You could make them and sell them.
Comment: I do not have a picture of a dolphin but do have sunrise and sunset and other beach pictures.
Response: I know dolphins can be hard to photograph. That is why I gave you options. Any beach activity photo just no people. I listed some examples in the journal. Don't stress over it, just choose one you already have if you want or go snap a new picture. Just have fun. Thank-You For The Heart :)
Comment: Hey there! Thanks for joining in. I, too, wish more of us had joined. Oh, well. I had fun creating just for you! Thanks so much for the beautiful scenes photos, letter, poem and the crafty bookmark. I like 'em all! Tennessee is a beautiful place. We live pretty close (an hour away) and we were just there about a month ago. In fact, your letter gave me a swap idea, so hold on to those photos! :-)
Response: Your welcome! Your so lucky to live so close to TN. We are 8 hrs away. What is your swap idea?
Comment: Thank you very much for the two Copic markers! I've tested them out and they're great. :) I hope when the time comes to register for The Sketchbook Project 2014 you'll join our group! (Will send you a PM.)
Response: Your welcome. I bought a pack of 12 so I'm going to try them out too. I'm going to use them in my scrapbook I'm starting sometime soon and my journal page swaps.
Comment: Hi! Thanks so much for sharing your vacation with me! I was sorry more folks did not join but it was their loss as your photos are just lovely! Hugs, Happy Snapping, and Swapping! ;)
Response: Thanks for joining my swap and the lovely comment. I appreciate the heart. I'm glad you enjoyed them. I enjoyed yours very much as well. I also hosted an International one too and only a few people joined it but I'm happy someone did. I might do another one soon but not in a group. It will be public.
Comment: thank you I love it. I for got to gave you the heart
Response: Thank you! That was my first journal page ever and it was fun. I'm already done with the Valentine one. I was hoping for a heart but that is ok. Thanks for rating me. UPDATE: 2/3/13 LOL Thanks so much. Greatly appreciated!
Comment: Thanks for sharing a little bit of your world with me. I'm sorry for your loss. Was it a result of cancer? That's a rather rough way to start the year, but I'm glad you remain happy despite the circumstances. Sounds like you have a busy and full household with 4 human men. Really liked your response that you value independence and being able to hold a job to the question about person you are drawn to; that is so realistic and I wish I had thought in that practical direction. Thanks again for letting me get to know you.
Response: Yes, it was to cancer. We found out in Nov. and it was stage 4. Here is the info I'd like to share....Her name is Marilyn Billock http://www.stombaughbatton.com/fh/obituaries/obituary.cfm?o_id=1891802&fh_id=13184#.UOcwQFsyYeA.facebook
Comment: Thank you so much the candles are great but that little ornament is really something. I have never seen one like it. It is already on my tree. front and center We put our tree up over the weekend and it was just waiting for the ornament.
Response: Your welcome:) Did you stick some photos in the ornament? So glad you like the treasures I sent you:)
Comment: Thank you so much for all the wonderful things you sent me! I absolutely love the train postcards and I know my son will too! Those sweet doggie stickers you sent are awesome! I am so glad we got to trade and hope we can do it again soon! Take care!!
Response: Your welcome! Thanks for contacting me and asking if I'd do a private swap with you. I'm always open for private swaps of any kind, well, almost any kind:)
Comment: LOVE IT!!!! The key chain is so cool but the bottle opener is Awesome!!!!!! My boyfriend thought it was so cool he has made it his!!! Lol makes swapping better when he sees something he likes too!!! Big Hearts to you!!! Thank you!!!<3
Response: Awesome! I'm glad I made you both happy.

Comment: Thanks for the good great cool sweet E-mail, I loved your answers big big big time. It is true you have to spend a lot just to get any thing good at the fair sucks. I also like how you did your username after your family so very cute and sweet of you.

Comment: Thanks! Just opened my gifts!! (4-29) thank you so much!! Love the toe socks, postcards with the train ticket and birthday card! Made my birthday extra special!! Wish I could give you more hearts!!:) thank you!!
Comment: I just gotta tell you Angel. I had one of the worse work days ever. I was so tired and upset I could have cried. Then I get your sweet package. Everything is so super cute and I love it! You just erased my Monday. Thank you so so much. I wish I could give you 100 hearts! I will keep my music lady bug and pin at my craft station to remind me of this swap. Your the best!
Response: I'm glad I made you feel better when you were having a crappy day and you like your ladybugs. They were hard to give away because they were so darn cute.I hope there is another ladybug swap sometime. It was so fun shopping for them.
Comment: Thank you for the stickers for both of the boys, they were very excited to receive "mail" for them. They absolutely love getting mail. I'll be reading the local paper you sent soon though. Right now I'm really sick and don't have much energy to do much. Thank you for a great swap!
Comment: Just received your postcards today! They're all amazing! I especially love the one with the fishing! :) Thanks so much for writing the birthday message for David! :) And thanks again so much for doing the swap:) Really love your postcards!! :)
Response: Your welcome. I'm glad you like them. I'll do another swap with you anytime.
Comment: Thanks for all the goodies to Brendon, he absolutely loved the Whatchamacallit, the Harry Potter Stickers and the Garbage Pail kids! Thank you so much-a zillion hearts!! Yours was by far the best!!
Response: He deserved it since it is his birthday in March. I made his extra special:) I'm glad I made him happy!
Comment: Hi Angel: Thank you so much for the really nice note and the great postcards. I really enjoyed receiving your swap package. Hope we get to swap again some time. Thanks again, and Happy New Year to you and your family.
Comment: You did lovely work on making a nice photo album quite special! The photos gave me a good idea of the fun things to do in your town. I LOVE trains, and was so pleased to see so many train-related attractions. You're lucky to live near those. Thanks for a wonderful visit to Findlay!
Response: Your wecome. My boys enjoy riding the miniature trains and it cost very little. I had fun putting it together for you and glad you like it.
