I like floral and fauna, puffins,desert nature,the ocean.Succulents, cacti and mermaids. Foxes and sloths.I like quotes... I usually always give a heart as I appreciate that people do the best they can at the time they are doing it!

I always rate promptly and if I haven't rated you its because I haven't received the swap from you !

Pet Peeves: People who do not rate you until you track them down...and swap hosts who change the swap requirements after I've signed up...

Thank you for the surprise stocking stuffer. I plan to follow the instructions on the tag and not peek.....but oh my, I am curious! This was a thoughtful and unexpected gift and I am grateful for your generosity. Geraldine, I want to wish you a very Merry Christmas season!

Thanks for the great postcard for the PNS October WTA! It was cool reading about the bookstore where it came from!

Wow Geraldine, many thanks for the self-laminating sheet RAK. What an amazing package, that was so kind of you! Really LOVE it! And thanks for adding the 2 postcards :-) You really made me happy today!

Swan on Sep 18, 2015:

Thank you for the package with all the wonderful items for the July A Healthy You WTA! What a treat!

2bneat on Aug 15, 2015:

I am speechless with delight over the package I received from you. At first I thought it was for the August Stocking Stuffer and I was commiserating with my children the fact that I would have to wait until Christmas to open it. Then I read your note saying to open it now!!!!!

What a surprise and delight to receive a flow magazine! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU. Never in my best dreams would I have expected a gift like this. I have been looking through it again and again just touching the papers and skimming the articles.

You are a very generous and caring swapper and friend. Thank you for thinking of me.
