Comment: How cool is that chunk.... ! I've gotten lazy & very rarely do I alter the chunk. Thanks for the great piece & the inspiration! Happy spring 🐣
Comment: Thanks for the re-send and the glittery 14 on the envelope. We love Dayton and visit there every August when I come up to teach at Stampaway at the Sharonville convention Center.

Comment: I like your flag too, I never knew there was a different flag in the States, just always assumed they were all rectangle. Our oldest daughter would be envious of all the nieces/nephews you have, she would like to have just one but so far her two sisters and one brother are in no big rush to have kids. I really enjoyed this PC/letter and thank you.

russromano rated for WIYM: Cover My Envelope Swap! on Mar 2, 2018
Comment: What a great envelope. Thank you for the time and effort you put into this wonderful collection of goodies
Response: I'm glad you liked it! I enjoy decorating envelopes and making postcards. No one in my family or friends understand my obsession! I watch more how to videos than tv! Thanks for the great rating, Judy
Comment: This was an extra extra extra special package. As soon as I opened it and caught the first bit of Harry Potter I was SO EXCITED. and the journal. . . . it is wonderful. Any chance you could share instructions for that and the mini too? What an incredibly thoughtful and well done swap. Thank you Judy, this truly made my whole week. Cheers!
Response: I'm so glad you liked what I sent! I have watched so many YouTube videos on making journals. They are basically the same except the size. I also joined "junk journal junkies" and other Facebook groups to learn from their members. I wish I could explain how to make them but you would be better off on YouTube. Thanks for the great rating and I'm so happy that you liked my creations! Take care ~ Judy

Comment: Thanks for the great manatee PC! My sister lives in FL and loves the heat. I live in Alaska and love the cold! Everyone should plan a trip to Alaska as it is one of the most gorgeous places on earth! Course I might be a little biased in that opinion! LOL Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Response: So glad you liked the Manatee postcard. I've always liked watching them at the zoo, but seeing them in Florida in their natural habitat was great! I moved from Florida because it was hot 85% of the time & so humid! Ohio has a mix of weather which is the best for me. Love the snow! Thanks for the 5 & heart. Take care, Judy

Hello Judy, thanks so much for the RAK! What a surprise, you really made my day! It was such a perfect collection of goodies - a very interesting coffee sleeve for my collection and I can now make several new cards for our adorable seniors with the ephemera you sent. I hop you have a very blessed day, week, month, year! Something is coming in the mail for you.
