Comment: Regina..It was such a pleasure reading your monthly letters. I just got your package yesterday and I enjoyed getting 3 picture note cards you made. I placed them in my keeping file. Thank you for the year of communication.
Comment: Wow Regina...you know how to spoil someone! Love the socks, and my meowy cats will love the treats. I'm saving the gift that feels like a candy bar for Christmas (or it will be gone in 60 seconds). Thank you SO much! -Donna
Comment: Well now I have to put The Blue Ridge Mountians on my list. Thank you for the photo cards, I LOVE the one with the road, have always been moved but the fall road photos, I want to be right there in the photo!
Comment: Thanks for the great kitty story! My kitty thinks she is a dog. She fetches things and follows my DH everywhere! Thanks too for the great quote! I like to put quotes on the reverse of my envies and these will make nice additions! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Comment: Wow, not only do I love Sunflowers, I love how you decided to zoom in! And how on earth were you able to capture all that glorious colour? I'll never know. Thank you! P.s thank you for the Snapple!
Comment: Thank you for this fun swap. I love the pen and the beautiful photos you took!! id like to display them somehow! The flag has special meaning as my son is in the army going thru basics! happy swapping
Comment: Such a cute card--thanks very much! I have vacationed in VA three times and love it. But for my time there I've not been to Charlottesville or Shenandoah Natl. Park. Guess that means I have to go back!
Comment: We have some things in common. I retired from being a daycare director in 2016. I worked at Head start for a year and a half as an assistant. Then I received the CDA training while working there. I've worked with young children all my working career. I miss them. Thank you for the fun goodies you sent. The jelly beans were gone in a couple of days.
Comment: I love the message to vote, I am politically active and attend my party meetings monthly/help campaign for the running democrats for the past few elections, its a very important message indeed! I even campaigned for Obama for his second term and got to see himself and Michelle speak locally, proud moments!
Comment: While doing some unpacking I came across a bag of old swaps. I'm so sorry but yours was in it. I'm so sorry for the delay in rating,
Thank you for the wonderful postcard. The only parts of Virginia I've ever seen were Virginia Beach and Norfolk while visiting a friend in Chesapeake about 15 years ago. Regretfully he passed the following year so I never got to explore more of the state though.
Comment: Sorry this is late getting rated -- your card got mixed in with some other mail and I just found it again. Thanks -- the card is lovely, and I very much agree with you list of Christmas likes, especially the family and friends part! Happy New Year, and Happy Swapping in 2018!
Comment: Thanks for the fun beach Christmas card. I grew up in the midwest but lived in Florida for a decade. Loved the beach themed cards I receive from my Florida friends. Here's wishing you a warm and sunny holiday filled with friendship, love, and laughter. <3<3<3
Comment: Thank you so much for the great swap! I love how you included a couple of your own photography, you're quite talented. Thank you for all the note cards and postcards as well, they will surely be used. :)
Comment: Thank you Regina for creating this wonderful pocket letter for me. This was such a creative way to get to know each other.

Response: I will be doing the same.I am glad I got to meet you and will look forward to swapping with you in the future.

Comment: Thank you for all of the wacky & silly holiday celebration items that you sent to me! Everything you chose was wonderful and I loved it all! The picture you took is so beautiful! Thanks again!
Comment: Hi Regina! TY for the lovely pc! I love the beach! It was fun learning about you - do you make your greeting cards to sell or to send to family/friends/swaps? I make a few cards now and again but nothing as amazing as I see on Pinterest and other places - thinking I need to take a class or several and learn some techniques this year! Again it was great to have a visit from you! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: Hi Regina!
I loved everything about this swap! Your note card was very cute with the owlish Matryoshka dolls! Thank you, too, for the stickers and photo cards. I know what you mean about every letter is like a smile in your mailbox! So true! Happy Swapping! Valerie
Comment: Thanks for sending the card. It was beautiful. My favorite Thanksgiving food is stuffing, mashed potatoes and the cranberry sauce. This year, all but the rolls and stuffing were homemade. There were three if us this year. I hope you had a good one. Thanks also for the beautiful postcard too!
Comment: Nice card and the envelope was covered with wonderful fall images-which is what it looked like here until today! We are finally getting some snow-even though a very wet one-still snow! So pretty clinging to trees-grass but not streets or sidewalks! Thanks for the Thanksgiving greetings and hope you have a Happy Holiday! Thanks also for postcard!
Comment: Thank you very much for the very nice card & the bear postcard. I opened it with my 2 year old grandson nearby and he just loved looking at the bear. :) Your note was very nice also! Have a blessed Thanksgiving!
Comment: Thank you Regina for my wacky, silly & unusual holidays. Tomorrow I will be drinking the American breakfast tea (never had it before). lol the bald eagle, was priceless. However the spoons and the paper you sent, touched my heart. My daughter has MS and I'm going to copy it so she can see it, her husband kind of understands & I think this will clear it up for him. Great swap partner.
Response: Thank you so much.The spoon theory is great for getting people to understand some diseases. The lady who wrote it has Lupus. she has a website with great stuff. I couldnt resist the eagle.:)
Comment: Thanks for the lovely swap :-) it has taken me over a week to rate you because you didn't include the name of the swap and I have had to go through every swap I've sent to find the correct one!
The items were gorgeous however they didn't match the swap brief of being all one colour (favourite colour swap). This didn't matter to me because I love all the contents anyway. Thanks again.
Comment: Very nice postcard with the birds flying in NC. That verse is so true! Thanks so much for the lift. I had to wait until all the cards came in as I didn't see your name anywhere on the card! So I'm guessing this is you! Thanks again!
Comment: Thank you so much for your pocket letter. I wish they would do a series of these about people. I really enjoyed studying to make my picks and then reading yours. There is so much to learn if we only took the time.
Comment: Hi Regina! Thank you for sharing your day with me - sounds like you were a busy gal! I really enjoyed your photo of Percy - thank you for the fun share! Best of wishes on your trip! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: Love the Palm Peeler will have to try it out... and the bright dishcloths are headed to the Kitchen right now... Thank you too for the Teas, will have to go to the Website for the Scripture Teas... ! ! Thank you for the Recipes.. My Husband Grills and I love to make Soups...! !
Response: I bought the scripture teas at cracker barrel.If you you can find them I will help. let me know.

Comment: This was a fabulous note to get from you. This was the first swap of its kind in which I've participated and I thoroughly enjoyed your note. I can almost step into your shoes through it - at least a little bit. :-) Thank you for sharing!
Comment: Thank you for this cute pocket letter and all the extras! I wonder what I would have as a theme for things that make me scream - perhaps spiders. They actually make me scream out loud! Happy swapping xoxo
Response: thank you I love senders choice.9pl.Happy new year and i hope we meet in another swap soon.
Comment: Thank you so much for all the wonderful things you included in my package. Your photos are awesome!!! That's one goal I have for the New Year - take more photos. You have inspired me.
Comment: Thank you for the encouraging words! I really needed them today especially. The photos are lovely, these little stickers made me smile, and I am intrigued by chocolate in tea...this will be the perfect night for it. Thank you so much!
Comment: Thank you for the lovely card. There are so many wonderful things in our lives to be thankful for. You have a blessed Thanksgiving. I hope it will be filled with fun, family, and friends.
Comment: Hello Regina! You deserve more "hearts" for having a big heart & not knowing how kind you are in this swap. With heart-warming thanks for the beautiful Colonial Williamsburg, VA card you sent to me with the lovely Mrs. Shield's Whipped Chocolate Pudding recipe, & Bigelow Chocolate Black Tea. My mom loves what you sent too. She asked & is enjoying the tea as I write this. Col. Wlmsburg, VA was where my late husband & lived until 2004. He worked as a costumed interpreter & I did photography, art, & many times sewed buttons back onto his costumes. Your address, a surprise too as you live in Charlottesville, VA, a placed I wanted to visit with my husband but were never able to. Remember to "Hi" to TJ if you see him there... Happy November! Enjoy the beautiful Autumn in VA!
Response: still thinking about you and your mom. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
Comment: I see...it was this postcard? Fall autumn, not a November Thanksgiving postcard??? Received this Tuesday...though I see the 09-18 postdate. Thanks so much for the gorgeous red marshes and for sharing your fall love. I love the season as well...
Comment: Thanks Regina, enjoyed reading your answers. I hope your trip to the beach is wonderful! I miss the beach...not sure when I will get there. I need a secretary/housekeeper too! It seems so much work to run my life in an organized fashion! Take Care!
Comment: Hi Regina! Your tea pocket letter was wonderful! SO many tea packets I don't know which one to try first! And I loved the ladies at "tea time" . . . plus I adore the paper on the backside--it looks like vintage wallpaper (which I love ;+) Thanks for making this special for me . . . I LOVE it!
Comment: What a beautiful postcard! I've been in the restaurant business for almost 15 years. Your mother is spot on:)
Response: thank you. My mother was a waitress for her entire life.She often worked for two resturants at a time. but all my brothers and myself worked as a waitress.even tho I was a teacher during the week.
Comment: â™¥ What a lovely PL. I really enjoyed your letter. I have lived in your state and appreciate how beautiful your area is. I especially liked my pin. I put it on as soon as I got it out of the pocket. I just gotta remember not to wash it.

Comment: Thanks so much for the nice package! I especially liked the pop rocks and napkins :-). Central VA is beautiful this time of year. I had the chance to visit the area once and enjoyed my time there.
Comment: Thank you for your answers. What pretty stationary and thanks for the horse bookmark. I was hoping it was more filled out though. Most answers just have a one or two word answer. Who are Ann and Thera? How did you receive money in the mail? Was it for your birthday or Christmas, did you win it or did someone send it just because it was a rak? Do you drink alcohol or have you ever?
Response: I have never drank Alcohol. But My my mother was a alcoholic for a period of time.\
Ann is a good friend and neighbor.
Vera is my Aunt who lives in oregon.I misspelled her name.
The money I got in the mail was help me gift. I had bad fall and hurt my knees. I also have lung issues. The money was to help out with extra expensive. I hope I find out where the money came from. I am guessing someone from my church.
I can redo this swap if you like. I will be more wordy in the future.:) Thank you for you response and interest
Comment: Thank you for sharing your love of photograghy with me. It really is a wonderful way of letting go and becoming one with the world.. you didn't say what you shoot with, I am a Nikon girl!!! I give my BFF a hard time, because she has a Canon.. haha
Response: I am a nikkon girl! I wouldnt have it any other way.
Comment: Thanks for the cute card and the fun stickers. Have a fun weekend. Karen

Comment: Hi Regina! Thank you so much for the book! It looks like it will be very good! I am sitting down with my hot chocolate tonight and will ring in the new year! The card is so cute! The girls look so happy! Thank you again for your thoughtfulness! Happy New Year!

Comment: Hello Regina, thank you ever so much for the magazine and the cute extras you sent me :) I really enjoyed reading the magazine, it's lovely to read one from the US and what I loved most is that's a magazine for real women and not those glossy fashion things. Wishing you a nice Sunday and a great start of the week, Aline
Comment: Thank you so much for this wonderful window into your life! I especially enjoyed reading about your interests and the ways in which you do (and will) give back. :) Please give Rascal a little cheek scratch for me and take good care of yourself! xo Arianne

He loved people food too, including ice cream, yogurt and olives! Thank you for sharing Rascal with me :).
Comment: WOW When I walked out and saw a package in the mail, I couldn't wait to open it. What a GREAT package. Sadly its still in the upper 80's here in Oklahoma but hopefully soon it will turn to cooler temps. I keep looking over all my goodies trying to pick a favorite and I just can't pick just one. I love the fabric and the note cards. Did you take the pics on the couple cards? Almost too pretty to use. Can't wait to use all of it. Thanks again for everything - it was a great day at my house today after the mailman came! :) hope to be partners again sometime

Comment: The minute I saw that tulle peaking out of the box I knew it was you! A thousand hearts to you, what a special package once again! Creative holidays and fun goodies. The lighthouse reminds me of the junior highschool I attended on Lake Ontario in Rochester, NY. Right outside our windows was a beautiful historic lighthouse. Everything is great, funk kite organizers, pretty nail polish, and I can't WAIT to try that Russell Stover S'more, never seen them before. That will be my treat for after work tomorrow. Thank you for making my favorite swap special once again!
Response: I was also surprised when I saw that you were my partner. lol . Its the first time Ive gotten a person 2 times in a row for the same kind of swap. I was hoping you would love it.
It makes me me happy that you do! It made my day.
Comment: Thanks for the beautiful and diverse envies, the lovely note and the extra goodies! Whales are one of my favorite animals and there are 2 types of Orcas. The resident ones eat fish and the transient ones eat sea animals like otters and seals. They do not mix. Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Response: thank you. I love whales also. Is there any way by looking at Orcas which group they are in.
Comment: Oh Regina, what an amazing package you sent me. VERY special, you put so much thought and creativity into this. This is my favorite swap and you really made this month special. Your card is beautiful, you have talent! I will frame it for my craft room. Everything was perfect, I'll cherish the beanie baby, and Cow Tails are one of my very favorites! You really spoiled me. Thank you!
Comment: thanks a lot for the pictures and also for the letter you sent with it! It was interesting to read the story of the two tombstones. I recently found a tombstone that had fallen into a small creek - it must have stood at the edge of the field just above the creek
Comment: I wish I could give you several hearts, as the weekly swaps you gave me were so beautiful and so much something I would love. I received the beautiful wooden cat and card today - on my birthday. It was so sweet of you.
