Comment: I am so sorry for this late rating! Thank you so much for your letter - I found it very interesting. I hate to say that I "enjoyed" reading it, but I hope you know what I mean. Just know that if you ever want to chat send me a PM and I'll send you my personal email address. I would love to be able to give you some sort of support - I'm not perfect but I'm a good listener.
Comment: Hello & thank you for your email on this swap. I enjoyed reading it. I wish you luck in weight loss journey. You and I have a lot in common. My life has been one hot mess this month and I will answer your email.
Comment: I am glad that you got what you wanted. I ended up ordering myself some reusable cloth paper towels made of Terry cloth and patterned fabric.
They cost like $20.00.
Thanks for joining this swap.
Comment: Thanks for the gorgeous card and generous amount of stickers! Maine is nice except in the WINTER. More snow than you could ever imagine! PA can't be that bad...the liberty bell, cheesesteaks...
Comment: What a cute little journal! I havent got to read it yet because Im on lunch break, but Im taking it back with me to the office and will read/reply. Will contact you when Im ready to send it back to you. :D
Also, thank you for the cute charms too!! There were so many!! I love them!!
Comment: Thanks so much for your June journal - I really enjoyed reading it! Looks like NutriSystem has better food now than when I tried it many years ago. So glad to hear that you are drinking lots of water and are losing weight - way to go! Thanks for sharing your month with me!
Comment: So all I can say is WOW, WOW, WOW. This package was absolutely awesome. There were so many things in it, and they were all so cute, I can't even begin to say. I loved the washi tapes, they were so cute and I don't have any like them, so thank you. The bananas were so stinkin cute, my little girl wanted them, but this time, I'm not sharing. lol. The stickers, love, and the papers and notebook, SOOOOO CUTE! Thank you for putting such a wonderful package for me. I really appreciate it!!!!!!!! :)
Comment: Thank you thank you so much, Rose, for your great parcel! I am amazed you prepared for me so many goodies. You sent me what I used to see only on the internet! Here are more hearts for you. â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥
Comment: Hi Rosie, thanks for sharing your journey in such a beautiful book! You've already come so far, and it's really encouraging to me to read about what you've accomplished. Keep at it, and good luck!
Response: Thanks so much! best of luck on your weight loss journey!
Comment: Rosie, thank you for your honesty. I skimmed your journal today and I think you'll find we both have had our struggles. I'll read it more thoroughly later but I wanted to make sure to let you know I received it and to give you a much deserved 5, a heart, and a big virtual hug. Thank you so much for hosting this swap.
Comment: I apologize for the *extremely* long delay in rating. Lots of personal drama, blah blah blah.
The drawings of the gods are great. I wish I draw that well. :) Really nice! And thank you so much for the postcards. They are are awesome and I will be framing them and hanging them in my bathroom.
I will get this journal to one of two people who can get it back into rotation. Again, apologies.
Response: It's totally okay! thank you fort working on getting it back in circulation. And thanks for the compliments. i really appreciate them
Comment: Got your journal and really enjoyed reading it! Your journal gave me some ideas for the next one I do - I like how you did weekly goals (I think I'm going to start doing weekly goals and maybe even some daily ones). I did NutriSystem about 8 years ago - looks like their food choices have really changed. Thank you for the extra stickers, too! You are doing great - keep it up and I know you will go far with your weight loss!
Comment: Really loved your package! Specially the Achie comic! I used to watch the cartoon series but I had never seen a comic before, I won't be able to cut it to smash it! Haha. Loved the journal cards too, they can't be found in shops here in Spain.

Comment: I've never played Diablo, but I LOVE Once Upon a Time. The new Wonderland spin off is pretty good, too. And why on earth did you have 500 crickets in a box? And I wish there were pandas in the woods. Loved hearing about your month. How else would you know it was a space kangaroo, if it wasn't wearing a space helmet?
Comment: Thank you, Rose, for the great surprise package! I love all the cute stuff! I will use the vintage stickers on all kinds of things..postcards-letters-packages-journaling & such a nice little tin. â™¥ The little cat journal is adorable! (and such nice quality). The little eraser is so cute? (is it a penguin?) Thanks again for a great swap.... â™¥
Comment: I love the Papaya journal that you sent me! It is so pretty - you are right about it being beautiful! I love the design! I will be thinking about what to use it for - I want to save it for something special! Thank you so much for reading my profile and sending me something so special - I will treasure it (and now that I've seen their products in person I might have to start collecting...). Thanks for joining my swap and being an outstanding swapper!!
Comment: Very nice pages! I really like them. As for feedback, my only problem will be punching the one with the rows of stars down the sides for binding. But I'll figure something out. Just remember to leave some room for binding on one edge. Thanks for the great pages!
Response: Thanks so much! I hadn't thought about that til afterwards when I received mine. Then I hit myself in the forehead and was like, oops! Thanks so much for the feedback. I had so much fun. And thanks for the pages you sent me too! I hopefully will have a better hang of it for the next swap.
Comment: I love the honeycomb note card. Where did you get them? I have found out about washi tape through this site and this is the first fabric tape I've gotten. I can't wait to play with it.
Response: I got the honeycomb notecard at Michaels craft store. They come in packs of 6. They have several different designs available. I am so glad you like the fabric tape. It's a great deal of fun to work with and I've found you can use it for all different types of things.
Comment: Rose, I just got home and your fantastic cards were waiting. I love them all. Flights of fancy brings up all sorts of associations. I love the vintage look of the others...still finding new things to consider. Thanks again for getting me started.

Comment: Thank you for the three FBs. It was fun reading the journey of each. One friend must have gotten married/divorced between Nov. 2011 and Jan. 2012 because her last name was different - what fun they are to read and swap. Thank you for a speedy delivery.
Comment: Mahler!!! Yay! The only 2 times I played a Mahler symphony in concert, strings have broken. One time it was a harp string. The other time I don't remember. But I just remember: Mahler breaks strings!! (j/k) He's great. Thanks so much again!

Thank you once again.
