joppagirl rated for Last Signer Label Bags 6 on Sep 3, 2011
Comment: You signed all the other label bags but passed on the one that you would have had to return. I'll return it because that is part of swapping. I do these swaps so that label bags get returned, not keep getting passed on when they should be full.

I am very disappointed with you, Jay. I've been angeling for you for The Really Simple Penpal Swap No.2. You never responded to my pm's and completely ignored the situation. You also never did write to me as you promised, but never mind about that. :(

homeandheart on Oct 27, 2009:

Thank you so much for the great notecards for the WTA!!!

DebP on Oct 15, 2009:

Thanks for the WTA#1 for Mixed Media Group. I loved all the fun stuff you sent. Plus fun overseas stamps that I get from your envie. What a great day. :)

OpheliaQuilts on Oct 13, 2009:

I received the cheap postage tag from you today. Thank you for the Christmas postcards, I really like the Santa ones!

jinnah on Oct 5, 2009:


Your Neopets pictures are so cute! I really like the little dragonfly guy, haha. And I see you like Coraline, which is my new favorite movie ever :) Have you read the book? It's just as awesome.

Hope to swap with you sometime!

swtbtrcup on Oct 5, 2009:

I no longer play neopets but I did when the website originally began. It was fun but then children invaded my life haha. This is for the profile comment swap.

I wish I could add the cute images. I loved the way you put them into your profile. Very entertaining and I loved it!

MinnieMelissa on Oct 5, 2009:
