UPDATE......Guess What?!?!?!? You remember the two journals of mine that were lost out in the mists somewhere? We I got both of them back!!! It's a miracle! I am so happy and life is looking pretty good right now!
I am writing this with a heavy heart. I will be leaving Swap-bot as soon as I have finished rating all my swaps. I am going to miss you all very much. I have had so much fun the last 3 years and made some very nice friends, too! I find that I am getting quite a collection of books and journals and ATCs and book pages and ephemera and trims and washi tape and paper........etc., etc, etc. And I am at the point in my life where I need to have less stuff, not more! lol I love all the goodies I have received, but I will probably never be able to use it all!
I want to say thank you to all the good people that have been my swap partners. You have made me smile, made me cry, and made me very glad to know you. I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season, and maybe I'll see you again someday. If you ever need or want to get in touch, just drop me an email at grammyof18 @yahoo com. (Don't cut an paste! There are underscores between the grammy and of and between of and 18, but they WILL NOT show here for some reason!) I would love to hear from you!
