Comment: Hi Yvonne. Thank you for the COC. So far, I don't think there has really been what I would call a "fall". I love pumpkin spice too. Thanks again for the COC.

Comment: Thanks for the chunk! I like a Pumpkin Spice coffee now and then. = )
Comment: I absolutely adore your journal! It's so bright and cheerful and I love that you made it from scratch. I love the cover especially. Thank you for all the dia de los muertos goodies! I love the pig bag so much and was thrilled to get the flags. I've always wanted some of those. You really made this swap extra special for me. Thank you so much!
Response: Thank you ;)
Comment: Thank you so much! I love how you did this! It is so pretty and colorful! Hi Tanya, I'm writing to apologize to you for sending your paperclips late. They had gotten lost in my pile of stuff on my desk. My cat had knocked a bunch of stuff off and I just tossed it back up there until I could get time to go through it. When I finally did I found three un-mailed envelopes. I took them to the postoffice right then but only wrote down names. I'm glad I found who this was to so I could let you know. I am so sorry this happened! I hope you can forgive me. Have a wonderful day! Hugs, Diane

Comment: Thanks for the magpie and the extra goodies ! I will gladly use them. Not a big deal, but it was not quite 20 pgs. if you are not counting sides. I would not rate down for this though.

I check my groups and noticed your 1 rating. That is exactly why I do not do International in my groups. Hope you will do a group swap for 9 Little Pockets that is up now.
